        Pages:  31-32

14-    WHEREAS the Township of Carling is in receipt of the new OPP Billing Model which will see invoices split between base costs and calls for service on an approximate 60/40 split;

    AND WHERAS all municipalities will pay the same base cost per property, which is estimated at $203.00 per property;

    AND WHEREAS the new model received Cabinet approval on August 13, 2014 and will commence on January 1, 2015, to be phased in over five years;

    AND WHEREAS the Province is currently responsible for policing costs associated with unorganized townships;

    AND WHEREAS the Town of Bancroft has passed a resolution requesting the Province to implement a billing method for those properties located in unorganized townships;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Carling Township Council does hereby endorse the resolution passed by the Town of Bancroft and request the Province to implement a billing method for those properties in unorganized townships so those properties contribute to their fair share of policing costs;

AND FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED that this resolution be forwarded to the Premier, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Ministry of Finance, AMO, MPP Norm Miller, and all municipalities serviced by the OPP.


ii)    FUEL DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

    Pages:  33-34

14-    NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that upon the recommendation of the Public Works Superintendent, Council for the Township of Carling accepts the quote from Fuel Master for the supply and installation of an Automated Fuel Management System in the amount of $15,710.84 with HST being $2,042.00 for a total amount of $17,753.00 this being the lowest of (3) proposal received.


iii)    TOWNSHIP OF MCKELLAR.  NEW OPP BILLING MODEL

    Pages:  39-40

14-    WHEREAS the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Mr. Yasir Naqvi announced a new OPP billing model to take effect on January 1, 2015 based on calls for service and base costs;

AND WHEREAS the effect of the new billing model is to shift policing costs from urban centres to small rural communities;

AND WHEREAS the shift in costs is more pronounced in communities with a large number of seasonal households;

AND WHEREAS the Federal Government’s definition of households does not include seasonal dwellings as households and therefore may affect the new formula;

AND WHEREAS the new funding formula will force small rural communities to consider alternative policing arrangements, cuts to existing programs and services, depletion of capital reserves or major increases in taxes;

AND WHEREAS there will be no increase in OPP levels of service;

AND WHEREAS the new funding formula will mean an increase for the Township of Carling in OPP costs from $174,318 in 2014 to $445,120 in 2015 or an increase of 255 percent not accounting for the five year phase in adjustment;

AND WHEREAS there is nothing in the new funding formula which controls future OPP cost increases;

AND WHEREAS the new OPP funding formula will negatively affect over 130 small rural municipalities;

AND WHEREAS unorganized municipalities have not been considered in this new formula;

AND WHEREAS small rural communities do not have the economic ability to generate new tax revenues from commercial property to off-set new costs;
AND WHEREAS the larger urban municipalities are going to receive savings on new OPP costs and yet have the higher calls for service and crime rate;
        
AND WHEREAS this means that small rural seasonal communities that are relatively safe communities are subsidizing larger urban centres;

AND WHEREAS the overall OPP review process was flawed whereby the many resolutions, delegations and depositions by various communities were not listened to; the various committees that were established were weighted in favour of larger communities and the results appear to have been predetermined;
    
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Council for the Township of Carling reiterate its objection to the new OPP billing model and call on the Premier of Ontario, The Honourable Kathleen Wynne, the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Mr. Yasir Naqvi, the Auditor General, Ms. Bonnie Lysyk and the Ombudsman, Mr. Andre Marin to call a moratorium on the implementation of the new billing model until such time as a fair and more equitable billing model for all Ontario municipalities can be introduced;

AND FURTHER THAT this resolution be circulated to all municipalities in the District of Parry Sound, all small rural municipalities in Ontario, AMO, FONOM, NOMA, ROMA, and the PC and NDP parties.

14-    WHEREAS the training and certification of professional firefighters is established and mandated by the Province of Ontario under the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997;

AND WHEREAS it is the responsibility of municipalities to establish fire departments and appoint fire chiefs to provide fire protection services as they determine may be necessary in accordance with their needs and circumstances;

AND WHEREAS many Ontario municipalities rely on both full time and volunteer firefighters in order to provide fire protection;

AND WHEREAS the International Association of Fire Fighters (“IAFF”) Constitution prohibits full time firefighters from volunteering as firefighters in another municipal jurisdiction (i.e. “Double Hatting”);

AND WHEREAS the IAFF’s stance on Double Hatting is specifically prohibited by legislation in almost all provinces in Canada and much of the United States;

AND WHEREAS a volunteer firefighter in the Innisfil Fire and Rescue Service is challenging the IAFF ban on Double Hatting and their expulsions from that union because of his desire to continue volunteering while being employed as a full-time firefighter in another jurisdiction;

AND WHEREAS the right of individuals to use their free time in service of their community is a fundamental right in a free, open and democratic society;
    
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Council of the Township of Carling requests that the Province of Ontario amend the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997 with respect to salaried firefighters who also work as volunteer firefighters, such that if a person is denied membership in an association of firefighters, is expelled or disciplined by the association or engages in reasonable dissent within the association in connection with this kind of dual role, the association is not permitted to require the employer to refuse to employ the person as a salaried firefighter, terminate his or her employment as a salaried firefighter or refuse to assign the person to fire protection services.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this resolution be circulated to Hon. Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario; Hon. Madeline Meilleur, Attorney General; Hon. Kevin Flynn, Minister of Labour; Hon. Yasir Naqvi, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services and Hon. Ted McMeekin, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
