5. DELEGATIONS/PRESENTATIONS

a) Toby Lennox, Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), Providing an Annual Update on the Greater Toronto Airports Authority

Received 2011-412

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

Toby Lennox, Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) provided an overview of the GTAA’s new strategic direction which is founded upon external pressures, realities and an assessment of internal strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. He noted that traffic levels have rebounded from 2008-2009 and the direction is to develop Toronto Pearson International Airport to become the premier gateway to North America.

Councillor Iannicca arrived at 9:44 a.m.

Councillor Sprovieri inquired as to strategies to deal with noise created by late/overnight flights and if the GTAA will try to increase the number of overnight flights.

Toby Lennox responded that overnight flights are limited by Transport Canada to 13,000 flights per year and the GTAA tries to manage the allocation of traffic to limit noise attenuation. He noted that the GTAA stays under the budgeted 13,000 flights, however the Airport has to turn away operations.

In response to a question from Councillor Moore, Toby Lennox stated that tours of the GTAA for Councillors can be arranged.

Councillor Fonseca encouraged Councillors to participate on the GTAA storm water management tour, noting that practices being utilized at the GTAA could be of interest to municipalities.

Councillor Adams arrived at 10:09 a.m.

Councillor McCallion inquired about a previously requested list of issues that the GTAA is facing to advocate at the Federal government. Toby Lennox responded that GTAA staff were waiting for the results of the recent Federal election and that a list of issues is forthcoming.

In response to comments from Councillor Palleschi, Toby Lennox stated that the GTAA is aware of concerns with staffing levels at United States pre-clearance. He added that it is a result of increased traffic levels. He stated that delays at customs could negatively impact customer service and erode access to companies within Peel. This is an issue which will be addressed at an upcoming meeting in Washington, DC.

b) Carolyn Clubine, Director, Long Term Care Division; Dr. Harry Earle, Senior Medical Director, Peel Manor and Tall Pines; Dr. Joseph Niedoba, Medical Director, Malton Village and Davis Centre; and Dr. Peter Bolland, Medical Director, Sheridan Villa, Presenting the 2010 Annual Medical Director's Report

Received 2011-413

See also Resolutions 2011-414 and 2011-415

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

Councillor Moore expressed concern about the number of Long Term Care staff who do not get the annual flu vaccine and suggested that staff at the Region’s Long Term Care centres should be vaccinated as a condition of employment for new hires.

Councillor Whitehead arrived at 10:29 a.m.
Councillor Miles departed at 10:30 a.m.

In response to a question from Councillor Tovey, Dr. Niedoba, Medical Director, Malton Village and Davis Centre, stated that the Ministry of Labour perspective is that long term care centres should provide a safe work environment for its employees. The Ministry of Health expects long term care centre staff to manage patients that in the past may have been placed in psychiatric facilities or behavioural units. Long term care centres do not have access to a full range of psychiatric services therefore, it becomes challenging for the centre to manage. Peel’s long term care centres have taken steps to further train staff on how to care for residents with difficult behaviours safely.

Councillor McCallion inquired as to the Medical Directors recommendations for improving communications between hospitals and long term care centres.

Dr. Niedoba responded that in the past, the attending physician would contact the long term care centre and provide patient history and other relevant information however, that dialogue no longer occurs. He suggested that a condition of hospital discharge should be the direct communication between the hospital and the long term care facility Medical Directors.

Councillor Fonseca inquired as to where Councillors and their staff should refer residents seeking information on long term care options.

Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, advised that the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) is responsible for assessing eligibility for long term care and discussing options available. She undertook to provide Councillors and their staff with a list of key phone numbers and website information.

Councillor Paterak noted that the CCAC is utilizing a screening tool for placement in long term care centres and requested that staff report to a future meeting with information related to how the screening will affect the demographics of Peel’s long term care residents and the impact on staff workload.

Councillor Mullin placed the following the motion:

Moved by Councillor Mullin,
Seconded by Councillor McCallion;

Whereas, the Sheridan Villa Behaviour Support Unit plays an important role in the health system to provide care and stabilization of individuals with a primary diagnosis of dementia and unpredictable responsive behaviours;

And whereas, the current legislative provisions do not support the timely discharge of residents out of the unit;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Regional Chair write to the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network, on behalf of Regional Council, to advocate for continued support to deliver behaviour support services through the special unit at Sheridan Villa; and to work with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to amend legislative provisions for discharge from the unit so as to improve the timely and appropriate movement of residents and ensure effective utilization of this service;

And further, that staff report back to a future meeting of Regional Council on the progress of discussions.
