Point of Privilege by Councillor Adam Vaughan 

Councillor Vaughan rose on a point of privilege with respect to a petition filed by Councillor Ford at the October 29, 2008 session of City Council.  Councillor Ford had advised that the petition was from over 250 individuals with respect to the parking regulations in place for Denison Square, Denison Avenue and Wales Avenue.

 

Councillor Vaughan advised that the location referred to is within his ward.  On reviewing the petition, he noted that it actually contained 147 names, 20 percent of which were individuals residing outside of the City of Toronto.  Although the petition stated that there was no parking in the area, Councillor Vaughan advised that a “Green P” parking lot was located adjacent to the property.  He requested that it be noted that as Councillor for Ward 20, he responds to the concerns of his constituents, not those from outside of the Greater Toronto Area.

 

Speaker Bussin advised that Councillor Vaughan's remarks would be noted in the Minutes of this meeting.

Installation of Sub-meters in Residential Rental Units and Its Impact on Tenant Affordability Units
City Council Decision

City Council on January 27 and 28, 2009, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council request the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing to move quickly to enact sections 137 and 138 of the Residential Tenancies Act, and develop regulations which will ensure that comprehensive and effective energy efficiency measures are in place prior to hydro being removed from the rent, and that rent reductions be calculated in a fair and transparent manner.

 

2.         Until such time as sections 137 and 138 are enacted, City Council request the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing to immediately take steps to improve protection for tenants from negative impacts of sub-metering, including:

 

a.         implementing interim information and communication programming to support tenants in understanding and enforcing their rights under section 125 of the Residential Tenancies Act;

 

b.         legislative amendments to section 125 to ensure fair practices in the transfer of hydro costs from landlords to tenants, including requirements for informed consent; and

 

c.         regulatory amendments to section 125 to ensure a fair and transparent determination of rent reductions.

 

3.         City Council request the Minister of Energy and Infrastructure to review the provincial regulatory and incentive environment as it applies to sub-metering in multi-residential rental properties, and to move quickly to put in place measures to ensure fair practices and protect tenants, including licensing of sub-meter providers operating in rental residential buildings.

 

4.         City Council request the Chair of the Cabinet Committee on Poverty Reduction to support enhanced funding to programs that help low-income tenants to pay hydro costs when they cannot afford the cost of this vital service, and to take other actions towards reducing energy poverty.

 

5.         City Council delegate authority to the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration, to allocate up to $25,000 from the Tenant Defence Grant Fund to support tenant dispute applications, in partnership with one or more Toronto community legal clinics, on issues related to the removal of hydro as a service included in the rent, and to report to the Tenant Defence Sub-committee on the results of any cases funded under this recommendation.

 

6.         City Council send a copy of this report to the Ontario Energy Board, the Ontario Power Authority, Ontario’s Chief Energy Conservation Officer, the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, the Landlord and Tenant Board, and Toronto Hydro to advise of Council’s concerns about tenant protection and fair rent reductions where hydro is removed as a service included in the rent.

 

7.         City Council request the Province of Ontario to put a hold on the installation of "smart meters" in residential rental units until such time as the appropriate legislative amendments and/or regulations have been brought into force.

 

8.         City Council forward these recommendations to all municipalities in Ontario with a population of over 30,000.

3.         City Council determine that it is in the interests of the municipality to make the grant to the Hospital.

 

4.         City Council direct that Women’s College Hospital reimburse all legal, appraisal and associated costs.

Inclusion on Heritage Inventory - 76 Grenville Street
City Council Decision

City Council on January 27 and 28, 2009, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council include the property at 76 Grenville Street (Women's College Hospital) on the City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties.

 

2.         The Reasons for Listing be as follows:
 
“Women's College Hospital was designated a National Historic Site in 1995 because:
 

-           with its emphasis on women as health care professionals and on women's health issues, it is an institution which is unique in Canadian history and the buildings that house it symbolize women's struggle to claim a place of their own in the medical profession and in the built environment;

 

-           the hospital was founded at a time when women's access to medical education, to hospital practice and to medical teaching was extremely restricted and it provided women medical professionals with opportunities that were unavailable, or extremely limited, elsewhere in the country;

 

-           Women's College Hospital has always been a pacesetter in medical practice and health care generally and important Canadian research centre.”

 

3.         The Heritage Attributes in the “Revised Reasons for Listing:  76 Grenville Street, Women's College Hospital”, referred to in Attachment 3 to the report (September 22, 2008) from the Director, Policy and Research, City Planning Division, be deleted.
