And whereas, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights and are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood (article 1);

And whereas, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms recognizes that “Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability” (section 15.1); and that “Everyone has the right not to be subjected to any cruel and unusual treatment or punishment”, (section 12);

F1. Motion from Mayor McCallion Regarding Eligibility Criteria for the Peace Officer Exemplary Service Medal

RECOMMENDATION GC-124-2010:

Whereas, the federal government created the Peace Officer Exemplary Service Medal in 2004 to recognize peace officers who have provided 20 years of exemplary service;

And whereas, Exemplary Service Medals awarded other professions such as police officers and firefighters make no distinction between federal, provincial and municipal recipients;

And whereas, eligibility for the Peace Officer Exemplary Service Medals is restricted to federal and provincial recipients, which results in situations where Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) special constables, working along side municipal special constables such as in prisoner escorts services, are eligible for the Medal but municipal special constables are not;

And whereas, the criminal code does not distinguish between peace officers who work for a federal, provincial or municipal organization, which could include special constables as employed by the Peel Regional Police, or by-law enforcement officers and animal control officers employed by local municipalities;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Council of the Regional Municipality of Peel urges the Peace Officer Exemplary Service Medal Advisory Committee to reconsider the eligibility criteria for the Medal to extend recognition to peace officers employed by any government organization in Canada;

And further, that the Council of the Regional Municipality of Peel seek the support of the area Members of Parliament for this resolution.

Regional Chair Kolb stated that Regional staff met with Max Harris, Property Owner, Town of Caledon with respect to his property on the southwest corner of The Grange Sideroad and Mississauga Road. As a result, Mr. Harris was satisfied with the correction to the map proposed by staff.

Councillor Morrison expressed concern that some landowners may not be as fortunate as Mr. Harris in identifying significant features on their properties. She enquired as to how Regional staff will address any future requested corrections by property owners. Mark Head, Acting Manager, Rural and Environmental Planning, responded that the Natural Heritage and Agriculture Policies, Item 59, Section 7.2.2.3 of ROPA 21B provides flexibility for technical corrections to mapping for errors or refinements. Unlike the Greenbelt Plan, the Regional plan will have some policy directions for technical corrections to the map, for errors or refinements, and will not require an amendment to the official plan.

Councillor Morrison asked if the property owner will be required to incur costs associated with mapping corrections. Mark Head responded that mapping corrections may only require a site visit by Regional staff.
