Seconded by Councillor Whitehead;

That the minutes of the Regional Council meeting held on April 23, 2009 be approved.

Carried 2009-472

Councillor Miles arrived at 9:39 a.m.


4. APPROVAL OF AGENDA

Moved by Councillor Sprovieri,
Seconded by Councillor Sanderson;

That the agenda for the May 14, 2009 Regional Council meeting be approved.

Carried 2009-473

Councillor Adams arrived at 9:41 a.m.


5. DELEGATIONS/PRESENTATIONS

a) Stephen Dupuis, President and C.E.O., Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD), Presenting the BILD Position on the Impacts of the Pending Harmonization of the GST/PST

Referred to Corporate Services 2009-474

Councillor Carlson arrived at 9:51 a.m.

Stephen Dupuis, President and C.E.O., Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) indicated that BILD represents low and highrise home builders in the 416 and 905 area codes and the professional renovation sector. In 2009, there are 28,000 projected housing starts which will provide 140,000 direct and indirect jobs and will generate 3.3 billion dollars in income sales and payroll taxes. He noted that with the current economic down turn, sales were off 62 per cent for the first quarter of this year, compared to 2007.

Stephen Dupuis raised concern about the new Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) to be implemented July 1, 2010 which he states will have a great impact for new home buyers. He further noted that the Province will implement HST on a new home with a purchase price over $400,000 which will unfairly target homes in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). He stated that 44 per cent of new homes valued over $400,000 are built in the GTA and only 22 per cent are built outside the GTA. He indicated that a home costing $500,000 will have a $30,000 tax increase with a total of $65,000 HST, before land transfer tax and development charges. BILD believes that there will be a 10 to 15 per cent reduction in housing starts which will threaten 21,000 jobs in the marketplace. In addition, rental housing will not be exempt resulting in an 8 per cent tax increase.

Stephen Dupuis stated that BILD is requesting that the Province eliminate the $400,000 threshold and treat every home equally, or to impose a graduated tax approach on homes valued over $400,000 thereby paying a higher rate on the incremental value as opposed to paying on the entire value of the home. He requested Regional Council’s support on the issues raised.

Councillor Sprovieri inquired if the $400,000 threshold mark is in keeping with the Provincial policy to curb urban sprawl. Stephen Dupuis responded that BILD believes that implementing the $400,000 threshold is contrary to the Provincial policy as many individuals will travel further to obtain a larger home for under $400,000.

Councillor Sprovieri raised concern for increased vehicular traffic and pollution and asked that the issue of urban sprawl be communicated to the Province.

Councillor Corbasson raised concern that the public is not aware of the affects of the harmonization of tax. She informed that she met with the local Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) and raised her concerns regarding the HST. Councillor Corbasson stated that it is her understanding that Mayor McCallion will be requesting a meeting with the Premier to raise concerns regarding the proposed HST.

Councillor Thompson concurred with Councillor Sprovieri regarding the issue of urban sprawl and also raised concern for the 8 per cent tax increase on rental properties which will impact on an already burdened subsidized housing list.

Regional Chair Kolb asked that the presentation be referred to staff for review and report back to an upcoming meeting.

b) Regional Chair Kolb, Honourary Chair, Rick Hansen Wheels In Motion and Glenn Barnes, Organizing Committee, Presenting Grants to Promote the 2009 Wheels In Motion Event

Received 2009-475

Regional Chair Emil Kolb, Honourary Chair of the Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion Event introduced Glenn Barnes of the organizing committee for the Mississauga event.

Glenn Barnes provided some history of the Rick Hansen Foundation noting that 2010 will be the 25th anniversary of the Rick Hansen world wide tour in support of spinal cord research which took approximately two and one half years for him to complete. Glenn Barnes indicated that the key goal of the local event is to raise funds to help provide a quality of life for individuals with spinal cord injuries. He announced that in 2008, $54,000 was raised and approximately $28,000 was presented as follows:

  1. Diana Simpson representing the City of Missisauga. Diana Simpson received $1,500 for the purchase of an accessible golf cart for the Brae Ben Golf Course.

  2. Shawn Farrugia, resident. Shawn Farrugia received $4,000 which will pay for the conversion of a hybrid van making it accessible allowing him to drive himself to Humber College.

  3. Jennifer Wilson representing the Smartrisk Foundation. Jennifer Wilson received $4,000 for the provision of theatrical plays which are used to promote injury prevention and safety in Mississauga schools.

  4. Curtis Thom, resident. Curtis Thom received $5,000 to purchase a track and field wheelchair to assist him in aspiring to reach his goal to represent Canada in the Para Olympics.

  5. Charles Peterson and Peter Muster of Freedom Wings. Charles Peterson and Peter Muster received $5,000 to provide hand gliding lessons for persons with disabilities and spinal cord injuries.

Emil Kolb, Honourary Chair, encouraged public participation in the Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion Event to be held on June 14, 2009 at the Lakefront Promenade, City of Mississauga in the morning and at Chinguacousy Park, City of Brampton in the afternoon.

c) Peter Dundas, Director, Peel Regional Paramedic Services, Presenting Austin Smith with a Commendation for Saving his Mother’s Life

Received 2009-476

Peter Dundas, Director, Paramedic Services presented Austin Smith with a commendation for saving his mother’s life.
