14.    QUESTION TIME

15.    OTHER BUSINESS

    i)   FRANK FERNANDEZ, STOP THE NUCLEAR DUMP.  NUCLEAR WASTE REPOSITORY

Pages:  26-30

14-    WHEREAS Ontario Power Generation is proposing to construct an underground long-term burial facility for all of Ontario’s low and intermediate level radioactive nuclear waste at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, some of which is highly radioactive and will remain toxic for over 100,000 years.  This site is approximately one kilometre inland from the shore of Lake Huron and about 400 metres below the lake level; and

WHEREAS water is Canada’s most important resource and should be protected and managed prudently; and

WHEREAS the Great Lakes are vital to the economic and agricultural well-being to both Canada and the United States of America; and

WHEREAS Lake Huron and the connecting waters, including Lake St. Clair, are a source of drinking water for millions of people downstream in Canada, the United States of America and First Nations; and

WHEREAS concern has been expressed by individuals, citizen and environmental groups and municipalities and counties in both Canada and the United States; and

WHEREAS under the 2012 Protocol Amending the Agreement Between Canada and the United States of America on Great Lakes Water Quality, the governments of Canada and the United States acknowledge the importance of anticipating, preventing and responding to threats to the waters of the Great Lakes; and

WHEREAS the Governments of Canada and of the United States share a responsibility and an obligation to protect the Great Lakes from contamination from various sources of pollution, including the leakage of nuclear waste from an underground nuclear waste repository; and

WHEREAS placing a permanent nuclear waste burial facility so close to the Great Lakes is ill-advised.  The potential damage to the Great Lakes from any leak or breach of radioactivity far outweighs any suggested economic benefit that might be derived from burying radioactive nuclear waste at this site.  The ecology of the Great Lakes, valuable beyond measure to the health and economic well-being of the entire region, should not be placed at risk by storing radioactive nuclear waste underground so close to the shoreline;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Council for the Township of Carling, in order to protect the Great Lakes and its tributaries, urges that neither this proposed nuclear waste repository at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station nor any other underground nuclear waste repository be constructed in the Great Lakes Basin, in Canada, the United States, or any First Nation property.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Council for the Township of Carling urges the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario to reject (and seek alternatives to) Ontario Power Generation’s proposal to bury radioactive nuclear waste in the Great Lakes Basin.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that copies of this resolution be provided to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the Federal Minister of the Environment Leona Aglukkaq, Parry Sound-Muskoka M.P.P. Norm Miller, Parry Sound-Muskoka M.P. Tony Clement, the West Parry Sound Area Municipalities, Wasauksing, and Shawanaga First Nations and the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative.

     ii)  PARRY SOUND DISTRICT SOCIAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION BOARD.  CHILD CARE MODERNIZATION ACT

Pages:  31-33

14-    NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED  that Council for the Township of Carling supports the Parry Sound District Social Services Administration Boards resolution that urges the Ministry of Education to amend the CCMA to ensure that School Boards are required to provide extended day programming for children ages 4-12 in all schools, regardless of minimum numbers of students so that parents and families have equal access to services in line with the vision of a seamless education experience for 4-12 year olds.

14.       QUESTION TIME

15.       OTHER BUSINESS

            i)          NEW BILLING MODEL FOR POLICE SERVICES

                        Pages: 14-16

13-      WHEREAS the Ontario Provincial Police are proposing a new billing model for   charging municipalities for policing services, starting in 2015;

AND WHEREAS the current billing model is a deployment model, in which cost recovery is based on percentage of detachment workload, actual detachment staffing levels, wages and benefits, and a cost recovery component for other expenditures, which model has been in place for over 15 years;

AND WHEREAS the new methodology would charge each municipality a flat $260 per household fee for the base costs related to providing police services, plus a variable charge for each call for service in that municipality. The rationale for this is that there is a base fixed cost for providing police services that must be borne by all participating municipalities, regardless of the number of calls for service that the OPP responds to in each municipality. The OPP have advised that 73% of their costs are fixed (i.e. base costs) and 27% are variable;

AND WHEREAS the actual specifics of the cost for the calls for service have not been released or calculated, the OPP has estimated that the average cost per household in Ontario for policing services, including both the base cost and the calls for service, would be approximately $369;

AND WHEREAS this model would see the OPP costs for West Parry Sound municipalities increase from $3,412,189 (per 2012 FIR) to $6,537,204, an increase of $3,125,015 or 92%;

AND WHEREAS this model would see OPP costs increase for the Township of Carling from $131,944 (per 2012 FIR) to $634,311, an increase of $502,367 or 381%;

AND WHEREAS this model is fundamentally flawed, unfair and inequitable;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Province of Ontario and Premier Wynne cannot allow this type of unfair treatment towards rural Ontario, and this funding model be scrapped immediately;

AND FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED that this resolution be forwarded to The Honourable Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario; The Honourable Madeleine Meilleur, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services; The Honourable John Gerretsen, Attorney General of Ontario; Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities (FONOM); Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), and all rural Ontario municipalities with a permanent population of 10,000 or less.

 

 

            ii)         2013 SURPLUS FUNDS

13-      WHEREAS there may be surplus or deficit funds in various departments for 2013;

 

            AND WHEREAS these funds should be transferred to/from reserves for future use;

 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that any surplus for 2013 be transferred to reserves to offset future expenditures or if a deficit occurs, it will be offset by appropriate reserves.

iii)        COST OF LIVING/CPI

 

13-      NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Council approves a cost of living increase to Council and staff of 1 % effective January 1, 2014, as indicated by the Consumer Price Index.

iv)        2013 TAX WRITE-OFFS

13-      NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Council approves the following tax write offs for 2013: $8,015.84.

           

v)         SET FINES FOR BY-LAW OFFENCES- OBSTRUCTION OF ROADS
