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

Toby Lennox, Vice-President, Corporate Affairs and Communications, and Stephen Griggs, Member, Board of Directors, Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), provided an overview of traffic statistics and forecasts related to the growth at Pearson International Airport (PIA), noting that it is expected that 42 million passengers, annually, are expected to utilize PIA by 2018. PIA employs 11,000 Peel residents, positioning the airport as the top employer and a major economic catalyst in the Region of Peel. Toby Lennox highlighted PIA’s role in supporting local businesses and stated that one of the GTAA’s goal is to help drive direct global access for Peel into new markets. He also indicated the GTAA’s support for a Regional Transportation Plan, noting that improved access to the Region of Peel would make it easier for PIA employees and passengers to access the airport. With respect to the GTAA’s presence in the community, the key areas of focus are Getting Started and Social Sustainability; Environmental Stewardship; and, Youth Leadership.

Councillor Palleschi inquired if the airport’s growth has contributed to an increase in the number of flights during overnight hours, noting that residents who live under the flight paths are significantly impacted by aircraft noise. Councillor Palleschi requested that the GTAA work with NAV Canada and the airlines that utilize PIA during the night to minimize noise impacts on residents.

Councillor McCallion noted the improved level of cooperation between the GTAA, Region of Peel and the City of Mississauga and she congratulated the GTAA on their efforts to be a passenger-friendly airport.

Councillor Fennell noted that the GTAA is looking ahead at how to serve the economy 20 years from now, noting that the economic development of the Region of Peel, Ontario and Canada is directly linked to how well people and goods are able to move throughout the Region. She indicated that consideration should be given to how the GTAA, municipalities, the Association of Municipalities of Ontario and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities could work together to help senior levels of government to understand the importance of linking airport infrastructure systems with other forms of infrastructure, such as transit.

In response to a question from Councillor Tovey, Stephen Griggs advised that the GTAA’s storm water management system takes the airport’s storm-water run-off into an underground facility where it is treated for sediment and the oil is separated before being released in a controlled manner.

d) Brian Messerschmidt, Executive Director, Aggregate Recycling Ontario and Moreen Miller, Chief Executive Officer, Ontario Stone Sand and Gravel Association, Providing an Overview of Aggregate Recycling Ontario and Advocacy Efforts to Increase the Amount of Recycled Aggregate Used in Ontario

Received 2013-805

See also Resolution 2013-806

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

Brian Messerschmidt, Executive Director, Aggregate Recycling Ontario, introduced Moreen Miller, Chief Executive Officer, Ontario Stone Sand and Gravel Association, and provided an overview of the use of recycled aggregate in municipal infrastructure construction.

Brian Messerschmidt advised that 167 million tonnes of primary aggregate and approximately 13 million tonnes of recycled aggregate is consumed, annually, in Ontario and that Ontario’s municipalities are cumulatively the largest consumer. The main policy drivers for using recycled aggregate are opposition to new aggregate operations and public interest in reducing consumption of primary aggregates, as well as, demand for broader sustainable development, including less greenhouse gases and energy use. Aggregates are used in three main applications: concrete, asphalt pavement and as granular material used as base or sub-base for infrastructure and building. Recycled aggregates have the potential to be used in all three applications. He provided an overview of the specifications established by the Ontario Provincial Standards Association for Roads and Public Works that include the types of recycled aggregate that may be used, quality control and assurance measures and the ability for municipalities to reject aggregate materials that do not meet the requirements.

On behalf of Aggregate Recycling Ontario, Brian Messerschmidt requested that the Region of Peel allow recycled aggregate in its tenders and proactively plan for aggregate recycling facilities, both within aggregate operations and stand-alone facilities in urban industrial areas, noting that there is still work to be done on the part of industry to ensure quality products. He further requested that consideration be given to a process for assuming plan of subdivision roads that use recycled aggregate.

Brian Messerschmidt commended the Region of Peel Transportation division for its on-going use of recycled aggregate products and indicated his interest in continuing to work with municipalities and the Municipal Engineers Association of Ontario to develop consistent specifications for each municipality across the province.

In response to a question from Councillor Sanderson, Damian Albanese, Director, Transportation, advised that staff are monitoring the performance of recycled aggregates used in Region of Peel road projects.

Councillor Sprovieri requested that staff report to a future meeting of Regional Council regarding the performance of recycled aggregate used in road projects, recognizing that it may be several years before a comprehensive analysis could be undertaken.

Councillor McCallion expressed concern with respect to Bill 56, the Aggregate Recycling Promotion Act, noting that provisions should be included in the Act to ensure a clean, consistent, quality supply of recycled aggregates.

Councillor Morrison suggested that suppliers of recycled aggregate should be licensed, with the granting of the license dependent on the quality of product provided.

Items Related to Public Works – Item PW-B1 was dealt with.

Gael Miles, Regional Councillor and Representative of Wellspring Chinguacousy thanked Members of Regional Council for their support of Wellspring Chinguacousy, and presented a video highlighting the impact the facility has had on people facing cancer, as well as their families and friends. Councillor Miles encouraged her Council colleagues to participate in the Pink Hair Dare which seeks to not only raise funds for Wellspring, but also to raise public awareness of the facility that also serves clients from the City of Mississauga and Town of Caledon. Councillor Miles acknowledged Mayor Morrison and Councillor Moore, as well as, Mayor Fennell, whose annual Mayor’s Gala has supported Wellspring each year.

Councillor McCallion commended Councillor Miles, noting that Wellspring Chinguacousy gives much needed hope to people who are facing cancer.
Councillor Morrison noted that Wellspring is a phenomenal facility that helps people at a time when they need it most.

Councillor Fennell recognized Councillor Miles for her dedication and determination in making Wellspring Chinguacousy a reality and she highlighted the need for ongoing funding for the facility.
