5. DELEGATIONS/PRESENTATIONS

a) Linda Graham, Member, Peel Children's Charter of Rights Committee and Brook Charbonneau and Isaiah Douglas, Students, Presenting the Peel Children's Charter of Rights, The Right to an Identity and the Right to Peace

Received 2009-236

Councillor Parrish arrived at 9:56 a.m.

Linda Graham, Member, Peel Children’s Charter of Rights Committee, stated that according to the Peel Children’s Charter of Rights, every child has the right to have their own name and nationality. Names are important as they reflect a child’s heritage, culture and religious background. Brook Charbonneau, an elementary school student, stated that she is proud of her Ojibway identity and that it is important for children to hold on to their cultural heritage.

Linda Graham advised that according to the Peel Children’s Charter of Rights, every child has the right to have a happy life where they can live in peace.

Isaiah Douglas, elementary school student, stated that there are children who grow up in countries where they do not have the opportunity for a happy life as they do not live where there is peace. He described the Region of Peel as a happy and joyful place to live and provides opportunities to excel and pursue his dreams. Isaiah Douglas stated that peace is not something you wish for, it is something you make, something you do, something you are and something you give away.

Councillor Morrison thanked the members of the Peel Children’s Charter of Rights for their presentation and informed that the Peel Youth Violence Prevention Network Committee is working towards promoting peace and creating an environment where children grow up believing they can achieve their dreams.

b) Mike Sullivan, Chair, Weston Community Coalition, Regarding Metrolinx/GO Transit Plans for Georgetown Corridor, Including the Provision for an Air Rail Link

Received 2009-237

Mike Sullivan, Chair, Weston Community Coalition, advised that the proposal by Metrolinx to build, on behalf of GO Transit and SNC Lavalin, infrastructure for the creation of a rail-based transit system to Pearson Airport is of particular interest to the Region of Peel due to the proposed design of the service and the technology that will be used. He noted that the rail link to Pearson Airport will operate using refurbished, 55 year old BUDD railcars and diesel locomotives which will result in increased pollution levels along the corridor. In addition, he noted that the proposed service will not be provided in Peel and residents west of the airport would have to take GO Transit to a point east of the airport, to either Dundas West or Union Station, then back track to the airport via the rail link with an additional transit fare. He further expressed concern that a private company would have exclusive operating rights for 50 years.

Councillor McCallion noted that the federal government has been a driving force in moving forward with plans for an airport rail link and that neither GO Transit nor Metrolinx had a major role in the planning of the airport rail link.

Councillor McCallion requested that staff report to a future meeting with information regarding the concerns raised by the Weston Community Coalition.

Councillor Whitehead requested that staff emphasize in the report the importance of acquiring land for a GO Rail Terminal west of Bolton as soon as possible as the Town of Caledon has received development applications for the area that must be dealt with.

c) Gregory Sweetnam, Vice-President, James Dick Construction Limited and James Parkin, Partner, MHBC Planning, Providing information on Rockfort Quarry

Received 2009-238

See also Resolutions 2009-239 to 2009-250 inclusive

Councillor Mullin arrived at 10:21 a.m.

Greg Sweetnam, Vice President, James Dick Construction Limited (JDCL) advised that Peel consumes 16 million tonnes of aggregate every year, of that total, approximately 8M tonnes of sand and gravel are consumed with 4.7M tonnes produced in Caledon. The Region of Peel currently produces none of the remaining 8M tonnes of the aggregate dolostone which is used in high strength concrete for buildings and bridges. Traditionally, dolostone is imported from Halton Region to Peel however, most Halton sources of dolomite (the mineral component of dolostone) have been depleted or are close to depletion.

Studies undertaken by JDCL in 2002 revealed there were 108M tonnes of licensed dolostone in the GTA; since that time, over half have been used. Greg Sweetnam noted that eventually, if no new GTA-area sources are identified, dolostone will need to be transported to Peel from Niagara Region and Grey Bruce County. He advised that a local source of dolostone would accommodate growth in Peel over the next 30 years and would result in building Peel with “Peel” resources; 40,000 truck kilometres would be saved per day with respect to transporting dolostone and greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced. In addition, intrinsic efficiencies in the local economy would be realized as governments consume over 50 per cent of the materials produced from dolostone and lower transporting fees would result in lower costs to the taxpayer.

There is enough dolostone in the Region of Peel to last for many years. However; there are currently no licensed dolostone sites in Peel. High Potential Mineral Aggregate Resource Areas (HPMARA) were identified through the Region of Peel and Town of Caledon Official Plans and policies were enacted to constrain extraction within the HPMARA to protect significant features such as woodlands.

Greg Sweetnam stated that the Rockfort Quarry application proposes to extract dolostone from approximately two-thirds of the overall property which is a small portion of the entire HPMARA and represents a balance between extraction needs and protection of the area. The rehabilitation plan for the Rockfort Quarry will result in a cultural amenity to the area when rehabilitation is complete. He referred to other former extraction sites that are now valuable components of the Peel landscape including the Forks of the Credit area in Caledon and Norton Place Park in Brampton.

Greg Sweetnam advised that JDCL constructed a grout curtain in the most physically challenging area of the site, under flowing conditions, and is satisfied that it can be applied across the entire extraction area. The grout curtain is constructed by injecting cement based grout into the ground to control the amount of water that flows across the site.

Greg Sweetnam noted that Regional Council, in 2003, directed staff to meet with JDCL to discuss outstanding issues but that the meetings did not occur until November 2008, when the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) prescribed that meetings take place. Since that time, JDCL believes good progress has been made to address the outstanding concerns, noting that peer reviews support some sort of staged approval process that would permit only limited extraction until the required detailed information is collected, analyzed and approved. At this time, JDCL is seeking land use approval with the outstanding details to be addressed through an adaptive management plan. Greg Sweetnam stated that JDCL is committed to paying its fair share with respect to road upgrades so that taxpayers are not required to pay for upgrades specific to the quarry operation.

Councillor McCallion noted that the Region of Peel opposed the Rockfort Quarry application in 2003 largely due to insufficient information provided by the applicant and that the staff report listed as item ETP-A1 on the agenda still indicates that there is outstanding information.

Greg Sweetnam indicated that JDCL is seeking land use approval prior to investing millions of dollars on site mitigation. The mitigation will be built and verified prior to proceeding with the quarry once the approval is granted. The quarry operations would be tailored to the adaptive mitigation plan to ensure the environment is not jeopardized.

Councillor Sprovieri inquired if area residents have experienced a negative impact on their wells as a result of testing and was advised by Greg Sweetnam that there are not very many wells in the area and that there has been no impact as a result of quarry operations.

Councillor Thompson requested an explanation of the adaptive management plan and inquired who would police the plan. Greg Sweetnam advised that the adaptive management plan will form part of the site plan and provides a blueprint of how the quarry will progress. As quarry operations progress, the plan will be adapted to address actual on site conditions. The plan requires approval under the Aggregate Resources Act which is under the authority of the Ministry of Natural Resources and some approvals will be required from the Ministry of the Environment.

d) Penny Richardson, President, and Lillie Ann Morris, Director, Coalition of Concerned Citizens (CCC), Expressing Concerns Regarding the Rockfort Quarry Application

Received 2009-239

See also Resolutions 2009-238 and 2009-240 to 2009-250 inclusive

Penny Richardson, President, Coalition of Concerned Citizens (CCC) advised that the proposed Rockfort Quarry site has the potential for damage to significant water and environmental assets due to the depth of extraction of up to 100 feet below the water table in extensively fractured rock formations. These fractures create water pathways which are vulnerable to blasting and de-watering. As most of the proposed extraction will occur below the water table, the risk to ground and surface water in the area is very high. Penny Richardson expressed concern regarding groundwater contamination from the artificial water recharge systems and grout curtain injections and stressed the need to protect the headwaters of the Credit River.

With respect to the environment, Penny Richardson stated that if irreversible damages occur as a result of the quarry operation, some of the best Niagara Escarpment land in the province, rich in biodiversity, rare species and highly valued ecology, could be degraded. She noted that the proposed quarry site is situated on the water path that feeds a section of the Niagara Escarpment.

Penny Richardson informed that significant questions have been raised with respect to the costly and complicated engineering involved in the grout curtain that is included in the JDCL Adaptive Management Plan. She stated that it would be a massive underground engineering project spanning approximately 3.5 km long to the full depth of the quarry and 5 meters wide filled with pressurized grout that, under flow conditions, could contaminate the groundwater aquifer.

Penny Richardson, on behalf of the Coalition, urged Regional Council to accept the staff recommendations and oppose the Rockfort Quarry proposal at the Ontario Municipal Board hearing.

e) Ronald K. Webb, Lawyer, Davis Webb LLP, Regarding the Rockfort Quarry Application

Received 2009-240

See also Resolutions 2009-238, 2009-239 and 2009-241 to 2009-250 inclusive

Ronald K. Webb, Lawyer, Davis Webb LLP, advised that he is representing the Coalition of Concerned Citizens at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) with respect to the Rockfort Quarry application. Ronald Webb noted that JDCL is asking the OMB to do more than just amend planning documents with respect to land use, they are also asking the OMB to direct the Ministry of Natural Resources to issue an aggregate license. He noted that all other commenting agencies, including the Niagara Escarpment Commission and Credit Valley Conservation continue to oppose the application on the basis of thorough, professional scientific evidence.

Ronald Webb advised that the cost to build and maintain the grout curtain for 50 years is approximately $259M and that amount does not include maintenance for the approximately 50 years that it will take for equilibrium of the environment to be achieved after quarry operations cease.

With respect to peer review meetings, Ronald Webb noted that meetings did not occur until recently because the appellant delivered a new proposal at the end of July, 2008 which had to be analyzed. He informed that Town of Caledon and Region of Peel advisors have continuously made themselves available for discussion. Ron Webb concluded by respectfully requesting, on behalf of the CCC, that Regional Council adopt the recommendations contained in the staff report ETP-C4 with respect to the Rockfort Quarry.

f) Stephen Garrod, Legal Counsel, Regarding the Rockfort Quarry Application

Received 2009-241

See also Resolutions 2009-238 to 2009-240 inclusive and 2009-242 to 2009-250 inclusive

Stephen Garrod, Legal Counsel, reviewed the history of the Rockfort Quarry application since it was filed in March, 1998 noting that the Town of Caledon and Region of Peel have coordinated expert peer reviews for 10 years. The Ontario Municipal Board hearing is scheduled to commence May 25, 2009. He advised that the final round of peer reviews were based on updated studies submitted by JDCL in July 2008 and confirm that significant deficiencies still remain related to issues such as groundwater protection, protection of the natural environment and transportation and traffic. Stephen Garrod summarized the staff recommendation that the focus be on Regional issues including conformity with the Regional Official Plan; hydrogeology/groundwater protections; protection of natural environment, transportation and traffic issues, and enforcement, financial securities and cost implications to the Region. Staff also recommend that OMB approval of Rockfort Quarry be opposed on the basis that Regional issues have not been satisfied.

Regional Chair Kolb indicated that there was no need to move in camera to receive legal advice with respect to the Rockfort Quarry application and indicated that in camera item 11.1)d would be withdrawn from the April 2, 2009 Regional Council agenda.

Items Related to Environment, Transportation and Planning - Items ETP-D5, ETP-D12 to ETP-D17 inclusive and ETP-D19 were dealt with.

ETP-C. PLANNING

ETP-C4. Rockfort Quarry Application

Councillor McCallion stated that, in her opinion, the Rockfort Quarry application cannot be supported at this time as strategic information is not available and indicated her support for the staff recommendation.

Councillor McCallion departed at 11:27 a.m. due to other municipal business.

Councillor Paterak noted that the proposed haul route includes a portion of the Niagara Escarpment planning area at Old Base Line Road which does not have paved shoulders. Councillor Paterak stated that paved shoulders would be necessary to accommodate truck breakdowns without blocking the road.

Councilor Morrison noted that the peer reviews clearly state that additional information is required and that the application cannot be supported in its current form.

Councillor Morrison requested a recorded vote with respect to item ETP-C4.

Councillor Paterak inquired if an Environmental Assessment (EA) or Official Plan Amendment (OPA) is required for Old Base Line Road and was advised that staff would investigate and report back with findings.

Moved by Councillor Paterak,
Seconded by Councillor Morrison;

Whereas Regional Council resolved on September 18, 2003 to oppose the proposed Rockfort Quarry due to insufficient information provided by the applicant, James Dick Construction Limited, in support of the proposal;

And whereas, Regional Council also resolved on September 18, 2003 that the Region’s participation in the Ontario Municipal Board hearing would focus on the following Regional issues, consistent with Regional roles and responsibilities:

And whereas, the applicant provided updated technical reports and information during 2008 in support of the proposed Rockfort Quarry relating to these Regional issues;

And whereas, the Region of Peel, in conjunction with the Town of Caledon, has retained a team of expert Peer Review consultants to review the applicant’s updated information and to advise Regional Council on the technical aspects of the proposal that relate to these Regional issues;

And whereas, Regional Council has considered the advice of those Peer Review consultants, the recommendations of Regional staff and legal counsel, the position of the Town of Caledon and Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), the submissions of the applicant and the submissions of the Caledon Coalition of Concerned Citizens (CCC), among others;

Therefore be it resolved, that Regional Council continue to oppose the approval of the proposed Rockfort Quarry, for the following reasons:

a. The applicant has failed to satisfactorily demonstrate that impacts, risks and costs relating to the above Regional issues are now acceptable.

b. Regional Council is not satisfied that the Rockfort Quarry proposal meets the intent of the Regional Official Plan to achieve an appropriate balance between the benefits of aggregate extraction and the protection of the natural environment, community and other resources. Regional Council cannot conclude that the public interest in utilizing the resource, in this instance is sufficient to counterbalance the uncertainties, impacts, risks and costs of the proposal;

c. Although the Regional Official Plan recognizes the potential economic benefits of utilizing high potential mineral aggregate resources and the public interest of having a new source of high quality aggregate close to market, Regional Council has not been satisfied by the applicant that the proposed extraction of the aggregate resource in this location can be undertaken without causing significant adverse impacts, risks and costs to ground and surface water resources, the natural environment, the local community, and the economic interests of the taxpayers and residents of the Region of Peel;

d. The applicant has not demonstrated to the satisfaction of Regional Council that the proposed mitigation plan and adaptive management plan will be capable of ensuring the timely protection of groundwater and surface water resources, natural features and functions and drinking water supplies, during and after operations and during rehabilitation;

e. The applicant has not proposed an appropriate mechanism to ensure that short term and/or long term risks and costs that may be associated with the proposal are appropriately secured in an enforceable manner to ensure that there will not be a burden on Regional taxpayers or members of the public in the Region of Peel;

f. The Regional roads proposed by the applicant for use as aggregate haul routes are not presently constructed to appropriate standards for use as truck routes and are not presently permitted as truck routes by Regional By-law 57-2005, as amended, and Regional Council is not satisfied that it is in the public interest for the Region to take the steps necessary to reconstruct these Regional roads to the standards that would be necessary to accommodate and permit aggregate truck traffic;

And further, that Regional staff and legal counsel, be instructed to continue to focus the Region’s participation in the OMB hearing on Regional issues;

And further, that legal counsel for the Region be instructed to advise the OMB that Regional Council recognizes the importance of local issues, including: compliance with the Town of Caledon Official Plan; social impacts; and other potential impacts on the local community and residents, and that Regional Council requests the OMB to fully and carefully consider such local issues, together with the above Regional issues, in determining whether or not to approve the proposed Rockfort Quarry;

And further, that Regional staff, legal counsel and peer review consultants, be directed to continue to meet with the applicant, the Town of Caledon and other interested parties as appropriate, to discuss and determine whether the applicant is able and willing to provide further information and commitments necessary to address Regional issues to the satisfaction of Regional Council;

And further, that Regional Council direct staff and legal counsel to support the timely, efficient and cost effective completion of this OMB hearing;

And further, that staff and legal counsel provide Regional Council with regular status updates throughout the OMB hearing process.

Patrick O’Connor, Director of Legal Services, advised that the Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) requires regional governments across the province to enter into accountability agreements that replace the existing agreements with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Region of Peel staff have identified areas of concern in the agreement including the broad discretion given to the LHIN with respect to funding adult day services and respite care. The accountability agreement potentially puts the Corporation at financial risk. Patrick O’Connor reported that the Region proposed a number of changes to the accountability agreement but the LHIN maintains that the agreement cannot be altered as there is a need for consistency across Ontario.

Councillor Morrison highlighted the concern regarding the open ended terms of the agreement which enable the LHIN to unilaterally expand the Region’s obligations without providing corresponding funding.

Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services reported that in 2008, the Region of Peel provided 23 per cent of the funding for the adult day services and respite care program for a total of $430,000 annually. In 2008, the Region of Peel served 201 clients through the adult day services and 28 clients through the respite care program. This number is expected to increase in 2009. The Region would be unable to maintain the current level of service without LHIN funding.

Councillor Morrison asked if the Regional Chair had contacted the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care regarding the concerns related to the accountability agreement. Chair Kolb responded that the LHINs are independent from the provincial government so Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care staff referred the call to the LHIN.

HE-A. INTERDEPARTMENTAL

HE-A1. Service Accountability Agreement for Adult Day Services and Respite Care

Moved by Councillor Mahoney,
Seconded by Councillor McFadden;

Whereas as a result of changes in legislation, the Central West Local Health Integration Networks (LHIN) requires that the Region of Peel enter into an Accountability Agreement for Adult Day Services and Respite Care services by March 31, 2009 to replace the existing agreement with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, in order to continue funding for the program currently in the amount of $1,186,927 for 2009;

And whereas, one standardized template Accountability Agreement with fixed terms and conditions has been created to form the basis for all agreements with over six hundred individual health service providers across Ontario;

And whereas, staff have several concerns about the Accountability Agreement including:

  • Broad and unreviewable discretion on the part of the LHIN to determine when a breach of the Agreement has occurred;
  • The right of the LHIN to terminate the Agreement for no cause and the restrictions on the Region’s ability to terminate the Agreement; and
  • Open ended terms creating the ability of the LHIN to unilaterally expand the Region’s obligations without providing corresponding funding;

And whereas, in addition to Peel staff, other health service providers and their associations share similar concerns with the Agreement however, the LHINs, including Central West LHIN, are not prepared to permit any amendments that would address these concerns and introduce reasonable balance into the Accountability Agreement;

And whereas, Accountability Agreements will be required in respect of the funding of the Region’s Long Term Care homes in 2010;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Regional Chair be authorized to advise the Central West LHIN and the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care that the terms of the Accountability Agreement as presented to the Region of Peel by the Central West LHIN are inappropriate and raise concerns, not only for Peel but for other health service providers, and that the refusal of the LHINs to consider amendments to address these concerns fails to promote, and in fact, undermines a relationship of mutual accountability and respect;

And further, that the Regional Chair be authorized to settle the terms of the Accountability Agreement through discussions with the Central West LHIN;

And further, that the signing officers of the Regional Corporation be authorized to execute the Accountability Agreement, as settled by the Regional Chair.

HE-B3. Personal Service Settings (PSS) Inspections Update (Oral)

Received 2009-337

Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, stated that in response to a complaint received from a member of the public, an inspection of a local tattoo and body piercing parlour was undertaken in February, 2009. The main finding of the inspection was that since 2005, testing of the sterilizing equipment used by the tattoo parlour was irregular and infrequent. Although single use needles used in the tattoo process were handled incorrectly, they were not used on more than one person. However, forceps used in the piercing process could potentially expose the public to hepatitis B and C and HIV. Although the risk of infection was minimal, Regional staff have requested that the tattoo parlour provide its client list to enable Regional staff to contact and to alert them to the possible exposure.

Dr. Mowat reported that Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care protocols for Personal Service Settings (PSS) call for all tattoo and body piercing parlours, along with barbershops, hair salons, ear piercing and nail salons to be inspected once a year. There are currently 1200 such establishments in the Region of Peel. Dr. Mowat stated that since 2005 the Region has been working with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to provide the required level of service called for in light of a shortfall in provincial funding for public health programs. Dr. Mowat advised that the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care staff, have been aware that the Region of Peel has been focusing its resources on providing information to local businesses and potential clients as well as undertaking inspections in response to complaints. The Region also continues targeted inspections of tattoo and body piercing parlours.

Dr. Mowat stated that in 2008, Regional Council approved funding for PSS inspections subject to provincial cost sharing. A subsequent increase in provincial funding allowed the program to move forward. Since that time staff have updated public information materials, guidelines and training for inspectors as well as the information management system. In February, 2009 all PSS establishments were notified that they would be inspected before the end of the year.

Councillor Paterak inquired if there are any regional licensing fees for PSS establishments in order to offset the cost of inspections and was advised by Dr. Mowat that that there are no licensing fees for PSS establishments.
