Presentation of Paralympic Torch to the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto

 

Mayor Miller welcomed members of the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, present in the Chamber.  He advised City Council that the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Torch Relay organizers had requested local First Nations communities to create their own unique Paralympic Flame. Ashes from the 10 community Paralympic Torch Relay fires formed the foundation for the final flame lit to light the Paralympic Cauldron at the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Winter Games.  Larry Frost, the Executive Director of the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto provided the Centre’s full support.   Sheila Kebokee, the Co-ordinator of Educational Outreach Programs, arranged the dancers, drummers and singers who were part of the flame creation ceremony, processional march and main celebration.

 

At the end of the official Toronto Paralympic Torch Relay Celebration, VANOC presented the City of Toronto with an official 2010 Paralympic Torch.  Members of Council, Councillor Heaps and the Community Task Force Steering Committee requested that this Paralympic Torch be presented to the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto in appreciation for their integral role in making the Paralympic Torch Relay in Toronto a success.  Mayor Miller invited

Councillor Heaps, Chair of the Community Task Force, to assist with the presentation of the torch to Larry Frost and Sheila Kebokee.  Larry Frost addressed Council and thanked Mayor Miller for this honour.

  

Presentation - Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) 2010 Conference and Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) 2010 Conference

 

Mayor Miller advised City Council that Toronto had hosted two important conferences in the previous two weeks.  The FCM 2010 Conference was attended by approximately 1,800 elected officials from cities and communities across Canada, and the CAMA 2010 Conference had over 200 City Managers and Chief Administrative Officers from municipalities across the country.  Mayor Miller thanked those who worked hard to ensure the success of the conferences, including the Conference Steering Committee, chaired by Deputy Mayor Pantalone, FCM Board Members Councillors Moscoe and McConnell and FCM alternates Councillors Hall and Kelly, as well as the City staff who contributed to the success of both conferences, including Barbara Sullivan, Director of Protocol, Kathleen Bartha, co-ordinator for the Host City responsibilities, Lynda Taschereau, Manager Intergovernmental Relations, and their teams. 

 

Mayor Miller noted that the City of Toronto won the following four awards at this year's FCM Conference and one award at the CAMC Conference:

-            the Brownfield Award, for Wychwood Barns (Cultural Services); and

-           The FCM Watershed Award, for the Basement Flooding Protection Program (Toronto Water and Technical Services).

 

-           An Award of Excellence was presented at the Conference Gala – this was the inaugural award for Sustainability in the Municipal Category.

 

-           The Environmental Award for Municipalities over 20,000 by the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) was presented for the Building Green in Toronto ‑ Toronto Green Standard and Toronto Green Room By-law (City Planning, Toronto Building and Toronto Legal)
 

Mayor Miller commended the staff who helped make the 2010 FCM and CAMA conferences a success, as well as those who won awards for their tremendous efforts.

Ruling by Deputy Speaker Gloria Lindsay Luby (Upheld)
Councillor Perks requested Deputy Speaker Lindsay Luby to review whether Councillor Shiner's motion was in order, as it sets budget goals for 2011 and that matter is not before Council.

The Deputy Speaker subsequently ruled Parts 4, 5 and 6 of motion 1a by Councillor Shiner out of order because they are beyond the scope of the Item.

Rulings (City Council)
Ruling by Speaker Sandra Bussin
Councillor Fletcher requested that the supplementary report submitted by the Toronto Transit Commission on Item PW33.9 be separated out and considered separately.

Speaker Bussin subsequently made the following ruling:

"I have reviewed the matter and am now prepared to rule that it is appropriate to separate the portions of Item PW33.9A from the main item.

As a result, when we get to item PW33.9 we will conduct two debates:

• The first on the recommendations contained in PW33.9 regarding the proposed use of lands on the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant site for the LRT Maintenance and Storage Facility, together with the supplementary information provided by the TTC on the Unilver site.

• And, then a second debate on the recommendations contained in Item PW33.9A from the TTC as it relates to the Transit Project Assessment Study and the access route between the site and the TTC streetcar network."
