RESOLUTIONS

That the Region of Peel invite the Ontario Traffic Conference to hold their 1984 Annual meeting in the Region of Peel.

Carried 82-94

Moved by Councillor N. Porteous,
Seconded by Councillor S. Mahoney;

WHEREAS the recent Provincial grants announcement for 1982 indicates an increase in the per capita grant of only $1.00 or less than 4% and provides no special provisions for rapidly growing Regions;

AND WHEREAS the low growth in the per capita grant will increase the Regional levy by
1 1/2% to 3% over that which would occur if the grant increases had approximated inflation;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Region of Peel formally register its objection to the inadequate level of increase in the per capita grants for 1982 and the lack of any formula to accommodate fast growing Regions such as Peel;

AND FURTHER, that the Regional Chairman and the Budget Subcommittee be authorized to meet with the Premier and the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing to express Peel's objection and to request reconsideration of Peel's per capita grant;

AND FURTHER, that the M.P.P.'s within the Region be notified of this recommendation.

NOTICES OF MOTION

a) Introduced by Councillor L. Taylor:

"WHEREAS on June 8, 1981, the Ministry of Health announced that fifty-five nursing home beds would be allocated to "Central Peel" and twenty beds to the Tindall Nursing Home In Mississauga;

AND WHEREAS the Region of Peel on July 7, 1981, requested the Ministry to provide additional nursing home beds in Peel to a minimum of 275;

AND WHEREAS the Peel District Health Council on June 16, 1981, requested the Ministry to provide an additional 210 nursing home beds in Peel by 1984, specifically, 126 to serve Mississauga, forty-four to serve Brampton and forty to serve Caledon;

AND WHEREAS the Ministry of Health has not responded to these requests and has, in effect, reduced the number of nursing home beds available in "Central Peel" by permitting the license for the Armstrong Nursing Home in Bolton to be sold;

AND WHEREAS the District Health Council, in a complete reversal of its June position has, on January 19, 1982, advised the Ministry the awarding of nursing home beds to Bolton at this time is not warranted on the basis of need;

AND WHEREAS the Region, which supports the principle of allowing citizens to provide advice to governing bodies, feels that the Ministry of Health, through the District Health Council, by reversing its stand on the need for nursing home beds in Bolton, has forced the Town of Caledon into accepting the responsibility for the operation of the Armstrong Nursing Home on an emergency basis to avoid the dislocation of its twenty-seven residents;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Region of Peel request the Ministry of Health to abolish the Peel District Health Council in its present form and instead allow it to continue as an advisory body on health-related issues to Regional Council;

AND FURTHER, that this resolution be forwarded to the Minister of Health, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing and the M.P.P.'s for Peel."

Tabled to February 25, 1982 Council meeting 82-96
