Item 14.1 was dealt with.

14. NOTICE OF MOTION

14.1. Proposed Motion from Councillor Sprovieri Regarding Artificial Water Fluoridation in Peel Region

Moved by Councillor Sprovieri,
Seconded by Councillor Sanderson;

Whereas the Region of Peel currently has a water fluoridation program which includes adding hydrofluorosilicic acid to the water supply;

And whereas, many residents in the Region of Peel may be unaware of the water fluoridation program; or the details of the program;

And whereas, on May 26, 2009 the Minister of Health and Long Term Care, David C. Williams issued a memo to the Medical Officer of Health encouraging them to support Artificial Water Fluoridation "…in Consultation with local residents…"

And whereas, no consultation was held with the residents of Peel Region in 2011 and 2012 before Regional Council re-affirmed the continuation of Artificial Water Fluoridation in Peel Region;

And whereas, Environment Canada classifies hydrofluorosilicic acid a hazardous substance, Transport Canada classifies hydrofluorosilicic acid as a dangerous good the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies hydrofluorosilicic acid as a Class One Hazardous Waste and the substance has traces of arsenic, lead mercury and other harmful chemicals which end up in the drinking water supply;

And whereas, hydrofluorosilicic acid is recognized as being a hazardous chemical by Environment Canada and a Class One Hazardous Waste by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there has been no known toxicology testing done to determine how persons with various health conditions such as, cancer, kidney disease, autism, diabetes, heart disease, neurological disorders, and the expectant mothers are affected by hydrofluorosilicic acid in their drinking water;

And whereas, Health Canada commissioned a review of Artificial Water Fluoridation in 2010 which concluded that adding hydrofluorosilicic acid to the drinking water is safe and effective in preventing cavities;

And whereas, on January 12, 2013, the Council of the Region of Peel requested Health Canada and the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario by a Council resolution to attend a round table discussion with Peel residents opposed to Artificial Water Fluoridation and interested Members of Council, the request was refused by the federal Health Minister and the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario;

And whereas, Health Canada recommends that toxicology testing be done on hydrofluorosilicic acid to ensure the product is safe for human consumption;

And whereas, the residents of Peel opposed to Artificial Water Fluoridation have asked Health Canada to provide the toxicology tests that proves hydrofluorosilicic acid is safe for human consumption;

And whereas, Health Canada has failed to provide the toxicology tests to the residents opposed to Artificial Water Fluoridation and to Council;

And whereas, Regional Councillor John Sprovieri submitted a question to Health Canada requesting clarification if Peel Region is violating The Food and Drug Act by adding hydrofluorosilicic acid to Peel's drinking water supply; Health Canada has failed to provide a response;

And whereas, there are many reputable organizations, individual scientists and researchers that are opposed to Artificial Water Fluoridation;

And whereas, the Region of Peel may be exposed to legal liability if it continues to artificially fluoridate the drinking water supply in spite of possible adverse health consequences;

Therefore be it resolved, that Regional Council re-open the issue of Artificial Water Fluoridation for the sole purpose of establishing a working group of Council members and staff who will invite both pro and anti-fluoride experts to provide information to the committee and report to Council with its findings.

Councillor Sprovieri requested the support of Regional Council to establish a Working Group to review the issue of fluoridation of the Region of Peel's drinking water and to report back to Regional Council with recommendations with respect to its continuation.

Councillor McCallion stated that while she does not support the re-opening of the fluoride issue, she believes the issue should be the subject of public consultation. She suggested that the motion put forward by Councillor Sprovieri be deferred to the 2014-2018 Term of Regional Council.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, noted that at its April 28, 2011 meeting, Regional Council spent many hours hearing from representatives both opposed and in favour of fluoridation. Based on the information heard at that meeting, Regional Council unanimously voted to continue the fluoridation of the Region of Peel's drinking water.

Regional Council took a five minute recess as there was a disruption in the audience.

Regional Council recessed at 10:54 a.m.

Regional Council reconvened at 10:59 a.m.

Regional Chair Kolb advised that in order to approve the motion placed by Councillor Sprovieri, a two-thirds vote would be required to re-open the issue of the fluoridation of the Region of Peel's drinking water.

Councillor Sprovieri stated that he would be willing to refer the request that a working group be established to the next term of Council, and also amend his motion to remove the portion related to re-opening the issue of fluoride.

Councillor Saito placed a motion to defer the issue of establishing a working group for fluoride to the next term of Regional Council.

He requested that the first recommendation contained within the report listed as item 10.1 on the September 11, 2014 Regional Council agenda be approved, but not the second recommendation relating to the inclusion of the Servicing Staging and Financial Policies in the subject ROPA. He stated that upon adoption of the Secondary Plan, which is dependent on the adoption of the Regional Official Plan Amendment before Regional Council, Mayfield West Phase 2 would provide for a well-planned, transit supportive, sustainable and attractive community.

Carried 2014-710

See also Resolutions 2014-709, 2014-771 and 2014-772

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, noted that the report listed as Item 10.1 on the September 11, 2014 Regional Council agenda includes two recommendations; the first being to adopt the Official Plan Amendment. He stated that as a result of the work being undertaken by the Growth Management Committee, staff have been directed to examine the Region of Peel's financial policies in a different way. The second recommendation contained in the report provides Council with the option to adopt interim policies, until such time as Regional Council establishes policies to be incorporated into the Development Charges process, expected to be finalized next year.

Councillor Morrison noted that the Official Plan Amendment for the Mayfield West Phase 2 Secondary Plan Settlement Area Boundary expansion has been in the works for ten years and she requested the support of Regional Council in approving the first recommendation contained in the subject report. Councillor Morrison stated that staff would ensure financing policies are in place that would protect the Region.

5.3. Rod Muir, Partner, Sure-Close Inc, and Waste Diversion Campaigner, Sierra Club Canada, Regarding the Bi-Weekly Waste Collection Contract Cart Procurement Update, Communications Plan to Support Changes to Waste Collection Services and the Peel Energy Recovery Centre (PERC) Update

Received 2014-711

See also Resolutions 2014-712, 2014-762, 2014-768 and 2014-769

Rod Muir, Partner, Sure-Close Inc. and Waste Diversion Campaigner, Sierra Club Canada, expressed concern that Sure Close Inc. was restricted on bidding on the Bi-Weekly Waste Collection Cart Contract without sufficient explanation. He also stated that the evaluation of the submitted bids was not applied consistently and did not include participation from members of Regional Council.

Regional Chair Kolb invited Mr. Muir to meet with Purchasing staff to clarify the procurement process that was followed.

James Macintyre, Director of Purchasing, stated that there was no restrictions on bidding and noted that Sure-Close Inc. was a sub-bidder for Rehrig Pacific Company. James Macintyre advised that the process was conducted fairly and the technical components were evaluated by Public Works staff. The lowest bidder, IPL Inc., was approximately $2.3 million lower than the other bids.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, clarified that the bid was not only to mass produce the bins; a large component was to determine if the bidders were able to deliver the carts to residents' homes and switch them as required by residents. He confirmed that the contract was awarded to the lowest bidder in June 2014.

5.4. Dennis Monestier, Canadian Sales Manager, Rehrig Pacific Company, Regarding the Bi-Weekly Waste Collection Cart Contract Procurement Update

Received 2014-712

See also Resolutions 2014-711 and 2014-762

Dennis Monestier, Canadian Sales Manager, Rehrig Pacific Company, expressed concern that the tender for the Bi-Weekly Waste Collection Cart Contract Procurement was issued twice, the first one was cancelled as a result of the non-compliance of all submitted bids. He stated that when the tender was first issued, a product prototype was required however, when it was issued a second time, only a product rendering was required. He questioned the rationale of awarding a tender worth approximately $15 million based on a non-tested conceptual drawing. Dennis Monestier further noted concern that the evaluation process was not conducted consistently and that Regional Council was not actively involved in the process.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, advised that the Director of Purchasing had responded to the concerns raised by Rehrig Pacific Company and that the bid evaluation was applied consistently.

James Macintyre, Director of Purchasing, stated that all vendors were de-briefed as to the reasons bids were deemed non-compliant and that vendors were provided the option of allowing the Region of Peel to retain prototypes and submit a drawing for the cart locking mechanism to meet accessibility standards.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, stated that the tender was issued twice and resulted in two compliant bidders. The financial comparisons for the initial rollout and the full warranty and maintenance of inventory over the 10 year period had an approximate $2.3 million savings to the Region.

That the Commissioner of Health Services be authorized to implement the approved expanded services in the Long Term Care Community Support Services Program, as described in the report titled "New Funding for Community Support Services for Seniors," subject to 100 per cent base funding from the Central West Local Health Integration Network and no net financial impact to the Region;

And further, that the required documents be executed by the Region's duly authorized signing officers;

And further, that the Commissioner of Health Services report to Regional Council once the funding has been confirmed.

Carried 2014-716

In response to a question from Councillor Foley, Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, advised that the Local Health Integration Network will not likely fund all the proposals submitted but we expect them to fund individual proposals in their entirety however, they do not yet know the total amount of funding they will be receiving.

Councillor Palleschi expressed concern that the criteria to qualify for the Peel Renovates Program differs among the area municipalities in the Region of Peel, with respect to the value of homes and he stated that the criteria should be consistent for all three area municipalities.

Janet Menard, Commissioner of Human Services, advised that the Peel Renovates Program was initiated by the Province of Ontario which recommends setting a limit on the value of a home in accordance with average resale prices for that geographic area. If the Region of Peel was considered as a whole, Caledon residents would not qualify because the homes there are higher valued.

Councillor Palleschi requested that staff review the formula so that the three municipalities' values are more comparable.

Councillor Moore suggested that staff review the number of applications that were denied due to property values to determine what an appropriate value should be.

And further, that of the two acres, one acre shall be transferred to Habitat for Humanity for their purposes;

And further, that this be referred to staff to see how this can be implemented depending on the size of the development;

And further, that a policy be developed for urban areas.

Carried 2014-721

Councillor Morrison stated that she and Councillor Palleschi have had discussions with Habitat for Humanity regarding how to encourage the donation of more lots through development. She advised that the developers who entered into a cost sharing agreement for a greenfield development in Caledon donated two two-acre serviced lots for social housing and she suggested that consideration be given to including provisions in the Regional Official Plan related to the provision of social housing.

Councillor Palleschi advised that the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) have been approached by the Regions of York and Durham and the City of Toronto with respect to the donation of land and BILD would like to apply a consistent approach to the issue across the Greater Toronto Area.

Patrick O'Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director, Legal Services, advised that a requirement that land be transferred has legal implications that would need to be considered.

Councillor Saito requested a friendly amendment to the motion to include direction that a policy for urban areas be developed.
