She confirmed that staff from MTO would continue to work with Region of Peel and area municipal staff to move the project forward. The new transportation corridor will include a 400-series highway, Transitway and potential goods movement priority features and will provide transportation infrastructure to meet growth in both population and employment. The first Public Information Centre is planned for winter 2014/2015.

Councillor Thompson requested that public consultations be scheduled in the communities that will be impacted by the corridor so that area residents do not have to travel long distances to attend.

Councillor Palleschi expressed concern with the anticipated three to five year timeframe for project completion and he requested that MTO staff make every effort to shorten the timeframe for Stage 2, and not duplicate studies that were completed by the Region of Peel and area municipalities.

Councillor Morrison stated that employment lands on the west side of Brampton and Caledon have been frozen during the EA process and she requested that these lands be released as soon as possible.

Councillor Whitehead suggested that the Region of Peel send a resolution to the Province of Ontario requesting that decisions related to the corridor pinch points be resolved in the shortest possible period of time.

Councillor Sprovieri suggested that that MTO focus on determining where the river crossings for the corridor will be located, as doing so would help to inform the route of the corridor.

Neil Ahmed confirmed that the MTO will move quickly on the EA process, noting that the project spans a large geographic area with numerous priorities and constraints.

Councillor McCallion indicated her support for the position taken by the City of Brampton and Town of Caledon stating that their economic success affects the entire Region of Peel and she requested that the MTO release employment lands as soon as possible.

Councillor Fennell advised that the City of Brampton is expected to accommodate significant intensification and residential growth without infrastructure to support employment lands.

HE-B3. Update on the Region of Peel Outdoor Smoking By-law Implementation and Proposed Amendments to Provincial Legislation

Received 2014-142

Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, noted that Regional Council had previously inquired about the issue of students smoking on sidewalks around high schools and he advised that currently, the Municipal Act provides for Councils to pass by-laws regulating smoking but specifically states that they cannot apply to the road allowance, which includes sidewalks. Proposed amendments to the Smoke Free Ontario Act would require that smoking be prohibited within 20 metres of any area classified as recreational which would include recreation facilities, playgrounds and sports fields and would reduce the availability of places where students can smoke.
