Received 2015-295

See also Resolution 2015-296

David Laing, Chair, Bike Brampton, noted that children's physical activity levels are well below the recommended 60 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous activity and that a lack of physical activity can be linked to disease and obesity. He highlighted school transportation trends which reveal that the number of children who walk or bike to school is decreasing while the number of children who are driven or take the bus to school is increasing. He encouraged Regional Council to support school travel planning to help define a vision for changing the trend and establish targets and timelines.

Councillor Thompson stressed the importance of partnering with the school boards to help educate children on bike safety.

Councillor Medeiros shared his observation that the bike racks at some schools are located at the back of the school and he suggested that they be located in front of the school to be more visible and to discourage vandalism and theft.

Councillor Fonseca invited David Laing to attend a meeting of the Mississauga Traffic Safety Council which works directly with schools for the safe movement of children to and from school and has created a subcommittee to work on safe walking and cycling routes.

Dr. Eileen deVilla, Acting Medical Officer of Health advised that there is a committee comprised of Region of Peel and area municipal staff who work on all forms of active transportation and oversee the Council-endorsed Active Transportation Plan and that the committee would like to see more active participation across Peel schools.

Regional Chair Dale suggested that the delegate meet with Region of Peel staff to discuss school travel planning.

David Laing advised that "Bike the Creek" is taking place on Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 8:00 a.m. at the Jim Archdekin Recreation Centre in Brampton and he encouraged Members of Regional Council to come out and cycle the Brampton trail systems.

Damian Albanese, Director, Transportation, provided information on planning and delivering solutions related to transportation to facilitate growth in the Region of Peel. He provided an overview of existing trends and future transportation challenges and opportunities, achievements to date to address some of the challenges and the transportation implications of growth. Transportation planning is a collaborative process. Provincial policies and plans provide the ultimate direction upon which the Regional and area municipal transportation vision and plans are aligned. The Strategic Plan, Term of Council Outcomes and the Regional Official Plan provide overarching principles and key input for the development of a Transportation Vision through the Long Range Transportation Plan.

Councillor Tovey noted that the plans for the GTA-West Corridor include a 60m reservation for transit and he suggested that the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) should consider reserving 90m to allow for a rail corridor as well.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, stated that the issue of reserving land for a rail corridor could be raised at an upcoming MTO Committee meeting but in the past, the MTO has indicated that they are not in the rail business. He suggested that such consideration should occur at the political level and undertook to work with Councillor Tovey to develop a motion for the consideration of Regional Council at a future meeting.

At the request of Councillor Saito, Regional Council directed that staff report to a future meeting of Regional Council with a list of projects that have been undertaken by the Region of Peel over the past ten years to address transportation challenges, such as the implementation of bike lanes and roundabouts, and include information regarding their success, as well as, what is being planned for the future.

Received 2015-324

See also Resolution 2015-325

Moved by Councillor Medeiros,
Seconded by Councillor Downey;

Whereas Ontario residents and businesses generate over 12 million tonnes of waste annually;

And whereas, recycling rates in Ontario have stalled under the Waste Diversion Act;

And whereas, numerous concerns have been raised by all stakeholders about the Waste Diversion Act;

And whereas, there is a significant opportunity to reduce waste and increase waste diversion in both the residential sector and the industrial, commercial and institutional sector;

And whereas, jurisdictions throughout the world are moving forward with strategies to take advantage of waste diversion as an economic driver, by moving away from a linear pattern of production, consumption and disposal to a more circular approach whereby resources are effectively recaptured and returned as productive inputs to the economy;

And whereas, independent studies have shown that increased recycling and recovery could add 13,000 good, high-quality jobs in Ontario and contribute more than $1.5 billion every year to Ontario's economy;

And whereas, the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change has committed to replacing the current waste diversion legislation, which will aid in a transition to a circular economy, but has not yet introduced replacement legislation to the legislature;

And whereas, full producer responsibility and other complimentary regulatory tools have the potential to increase recycling rates in the province, thereby growing the local economy as producers innovate to reduce waste, develop more easily recyclable packaging or products and work with municipalities and other service providers on better ways to collect and process it;

And whereas, municipal taxpayers currently bear more than 50% of the cost of recycling packaging and printed paper collected in the Blue Box program and 100% of the cost of disposing of packaging and printed paper collected as litter or garbage, even though they have no control over the design of packaging and products that enter their jurisdiction, which products and packaging are increasingly complex, multi-material and expensive to recycle;

And whereas, full producer responsibility, which requires producers to be responsible for 100% of the cost of end-of-life management of designated products and packaging, would provide considerable savings to the taxpayers of the Region of Peel;

And whereas, Peel Region's 1.4 million residents expect and deserve reliable, efficient integrated waste management services;

And whereas, municipalities and businesses need predictability and transparency in order to invest in new infrastructure;

And whereas, fair and open competition is needed to ensure long term stability and savings in the waste management sector;

And whereas, environmental standards with rigorous oversight and enforcement are needed to protect consumers, businesses and the environment;

Therefore be it resolved, that The Regional Municipality of Peel calls on the Ontario Government to introduce legislation, based on full producer responsibility, and allowing for the implementation of complimentary regulatory tools, to support the transition to a circular economy, and to replace the Waste Diversion Act;

And further, that such legislation provide for environmental standards with rigorous oversight and enforcement; ensure fair and open competition; and require that producers work with municipalities on the design and implementation of producer responsibility programs to minimize any negative impacts on municipal integrated waste management systems and ensure municipalities are fairly compensated for services provided to manage designated wastes that enter the municipal system;

And further, that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.
