Received 2012-1313

See also Resolutions 2012-1314 to 2012-1316 inclusive

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Andrew Lotto, Manager, Resuscitation, Heart and Stroke Foundation, provided statistics related to reported resuscitation events in Peel Region and highlighted improvements required in order to match survival rates of the best jurisdictions in the world, such as Seattle. The Peel Region cardiac arrest survival rate is 8.7 per cent, while some of the best regions have survival rates of 15 to 20 per cent. The Heart and Stroke Foundation recommends that municipalities commit to implementing a broad public education campaign to raise awareness around issues such as the ease of CPR training and use of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs); work with the Heart and Stroke Foundation through the Ontario Defibrillator Access Initiative (ADAI) to ensure AEDs are placed in all sport and recreation facilities and schools, and; write to the Minister of Health and Long Term Care in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s request that the script for emergency medical dispatchers be revised to provide the most compelling, clear and mandatory CPR direction in all cases of cardiac arrest.

Members of Regional Council expressed their support for the installation of AED’s in public facilities and the need to improve bystander CPR rates. Councillor Miles suggested that AEDs be purchased for all Regional office facilities.

Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, advised that at a previous meeting of the Emergency and Protective Services Committee (EPSC), staff were directed to report back to a future meeting with information on the current system of public access defibrillators and provide recommendations on what role the Region of Peel could play to create a more coordinated system. She noted that currently, the public access defibrillators are operated by the lower tier municipalities and that Region of Peel staff can work with area municipal staff to provide a comprehensive report on the location of existing AEDs, as well as, information related to their maintenance and training processes.

Councillor Saito requested that the Commissioner of Health Services also include an investigation and recommendations of how to include CPR training in large events run by the area municipalities.

Councillor Crombie arrived at 9:55 a.m.

a) Dr. Sheldon Cheskes, Medical Director, Sunnybrook Osler Centre for Prehospital Care, Providing the Medical Director's Annual Update

Received 2012-1314

See also Resolutions 2012-1313, 2012-1315 and 2012-1316

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Dr. Sheldon Cheskes, Medical Director, Sunnybrook Osler Centre for Pre-hospital Care, advised that the current survival rate from shockable cardiac arrest is 33.3 per cent which translates to 55 lives saved in 2012, in the Region of Peel. Results for Peel Region are now consistent on a yearly basis and there have been improvements in the rates of bystander CPR. Peel’s approach to cardiac arrest management is increasingly recognized and Dr. Cheskes has received multiple requests for presentations on the approach to cardiac arrest and was recognized at a recent meeting of the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) Steering Committee for Excellence in Cardiac Arrest Management. Dr. Cheskes stated that cardiac arrest survival rates could be further enhanced by improving the Regional Public Access Defibrillators (PAD) program which currently lacks consistency of oversight and quality assurance and by addressing the lack of knowledge of dispatch as to the locations of PADs. Dr. Cheskes further highlighted the importance of having a process in place to ensure existing PADs are functional and that the parts have not expired.

Dr. Cheskes acknowledged Peter Dundas, Chief and Director, Peel Paramedic Services, who is recognized by the industry for his leadership in cutting edge work in the science of pre-hospital medicine.

In response to questions from Members of Regional Council, Dr. Cheskes advised that any owner of a PAD in Halton Region must register it and maintain it and that the cost of PADs vary from $1,000 to $2,000 however, the price would be lower if purchased as part of a Regional program where grant opportunities could be identified.

Councillor Paterak requested that the Commissioner of Health Services investigate the Halton PAD registration system and report back to a future meeting with recommendations for the Region of Peel. Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, undertook to include the information in the future report on public access defibrillation at an upcoming Emergency and Protective Services Committee meeting.

Items Related to Health – Items HE-A1 and HE-A2 were dealt with.

Received 2012-1315

See also Resolutions 2012-1313, 2012-1314 and 2012-1316

Councillor Paterak stated that he would be requesting the Council of the Town of Caledon to not agree to proceeding with the RFP for the consultant for the Fire and Paramedic Services Study until such time as the results of the similar study conducted by the City of Toronto have been reviewed. He noted that the results are expected to be available by January, 2013. Councillor Paterak indicated that the study conducted by the City of Toronto may duplicate areas of the study which could potentially reduce or impact the scope of the Region of Peel study and reduce the projected $250,000 cost.

Additional Item – HE-A2:

HE-A2: Fire and Paramedic Services Study – Request for Information Results (Deferred from the October 11, 2012 Regional Council meeting)

Moved by Councillor Saito,

Carried 2012-1316

See also Resolutions 2012-1312 to 2012-1315 inclusive

Councillor Saito suggested that sending the cost estimate to the area municipalities be referred back to Health Services until staff have had the opportunity to review the results of the City of Toronto Study, noting that subsequent to that review, it may be appropriate to revise the Study scope and cost estimate.

Davis Centre for Families and the Safe Centre of Peel and Celebrating the First Anniversary of Catholic Family Services Peel Dufferin

Received 2012-1317

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Mark Creedon, Executive Director and LaRee Walters Boadway, Manager, Safe Centre of Peel, Catholic Family Services Peel Dufferin, thanked the Council of the Region of Peel for approving a loan to Catholic Family Services of Peel Dufferin in the amount of $500,000 which was applied towards $3.7 million in renovations to the Centre for Families site. The centre receives approximately 1,000 visitors per month and provides a variety of comprehensive services under one roof. LaRee Walters Boadway shared her experiences working with clients of the Safe Centre of Peel which is one of the cornerstones of the The Honourable William G. Davis Centre for Families. It was noted that existing grants for the Manager, reception-administrator position will expire in March 2013 and that the assistance of the Region of Peel, United Way of Peel Region and the Ministry of Community of Social Services is being sought to retain this important position.

Members of Regional Council expressed their support for the Centre for Families and the Commissioner of Human Services was requested by Councillor Sanderson to investigate whether it would be possible to utilize the payback of the $500,000 loan to assist with the funding of the staff position and report to a future meeting of Regional Council with findings.

Adam Chalcraft and Princess Boucher, Community Representatives, urged Regional Council to take the necessary steps to ensure the Community Start-Up and Maintenance Benefit from the Province of Ontario is not eliminated due to its importance to lower-income individuals in the Region of Peel.

Janet Menard, Commissioner of Human Services, stated that while the Region of Peel does not have control over this funding, the Province is applying the savings from the elimination of the fund to the Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative (CHPI) funding stream that provides Region of Peel staff with flexibility to address Peel-specific priorities regarding housing and homelessness.

Councillor Mullin requested that the Commissioner of Human Services meet with the delegates to explain in greater detail the proposed changes to the funding.

MA-C. EXECUTIVE OFFICE

The following motion was dealt with.

Moved by Councillor Tovey,
Seconded by Councillor Sanderson;

Whereas, the Government of Ontario, through Metrolinx, has identified key transit priorities throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA), including key initiatives in the Region of Peel such as the Hurontario/Main St. Light Rail Transit (LRT project) and all day two-way GO train service;

And whereas, effective and efficient transit, transportation and goods movement solutions are important aspects in supporting economic development, environmental sustainability and quality of life in Peel region and across the GTHA;

And whereas, the Council of the Region of Peel has identified gridlock and the movement of goods as one of the top priority actions for this term of Council;

And whereas, public transit can, and will, play a vital role in reducing gridlock and traffic congestion on roads throughout the Region of Peel;

And whereas, area municipalities require adequate and timely resources from the provincial government to properly implement all aspects of these transit projects;

Therefore be it resolved, that Peel Regional Council, through their advocacy efforts, supports the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon in their efforts to secure necessary funding for transit projects prioritized by Metrolinx as important for increasing the connectivity of transit across the GTHA.

Carried 2012-1335

Councillor Tovey placed a motion to include public transit as an area of advocacy for the Intergovernmental Relations Advisory Committee (IRAC), noting that improved public transit is crucial in order to address gridlock.

Councillor Miles noted that the City of Brampton still does not have all-day GO Train service and that Transit needs to be the number one priority in the Region of Peel and requested a friendly amendment to the motion to include all-day GO Train service, which was accepted.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, stated that Infrastructure Ontario and P3 Canada are more likely to support a DBFOM approach to contract delivery which includes long term private financing. He indicated that Regional staff will provide all the necessary information when the business case is presented to Regional Council for approval.

Presentation by Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health

Received 2012-1367

See also Resolution 2012-1368

Moved by Councillor Sanderson,
Seconded by Councillor Mullin;

Whereas, contraband tobacco has negative public consequences and impacts such as unrestricted youth access to tobacco products, and an increase in criminal activity;

And whereas, contraband tobacco products are easily accessible in our community;

And whereas, small businesses are sometimes forced to close because of the sale of contraband tobacco;

And whereas, small businesses in our community, and government in general, stand to benefit from the institution of tougher restrictions on contraband tobacco;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Regional Chair write a letter to the Ontario Minister of Finance, on behalf of Regional Council, in support of the Ontario Government’s most recent Budget commitments to eradicate contraband tobacco through the implementation of additional regulatory, enforcement and other provisions in Bill 186 and amendments to the Tobacco Tax Act. Particularly, in support of measures such as:

And further, that the provincial government be encouraged to continue to strengthen their strategies to address the manufacture and supply of contraband tobacco and maintain their commitment to introduce amendments this fall to implement these measures;

And further, that the area municipalities, local MPs and MPPs in Peel, the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities be made aware of the actions taken by Regional Council to address the concerns presented by contraband tobacco.

See also Resolution 2012-1367

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, stated that while smoking rates are declining, there are still many smokers in the Region of Peel and that males have a higher smoking rate than females. He noted that the annual costs of hospital treatment of smoking-attributable diseases exceed $49 million, which would be closer to $100 million when national data is factored. In Ontario, the production and sales of tobacco are declining and Ontarians are becoming less tolerant towards tobacco use, however, the use of discount brand and contraband cigarettes is increasing. Dr. Mowat stated that approximately half of the students who smoke are sold cigarettes illegally by a retailer.

The Medical Officer of Health undertook to investigate potential amendments to the Smoking By-law that would prohibit students from smoking within a certain distance of schools.
