I THINK A GOOD. THAT BASIS,
WELCOME NAME IS CHRIS MacISAAC AS
THE MAYOR. I’M 40 YEAR OF
OAKVILLE. FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER BEEN IN A
COUNCIL CHAMBERS. A NEW FOR ME ME. WISH TO BRIEFLY ON
THE PLANNED FOR THE RE REDEVELOPMENT REDEVELOPED
ALONG THE WEST HARBOUR ONTARIOLINE AND I’M ON BEHALF OF
THE 14 RESIDENTS BORDERING ON THE RE
REDEVELOPED. LIKE TO COMPLIMENT STAFF AND CHRIS MARK PARTICULAR
PARTICULARLY FOR THE SHORELINE DESIGN. ALWAYS
BELIEVED THAT OAKVILLE GREATER
SHORELINE PUBLIC ACCESS AND I THINK THAT A MAJOR
STEP FORWARD IN THAT. GOAL IN THE
LIGHTING REDEVELOPED HAS NOT BEEN FOR THELINE, BUT I WANT
ASSURE YOU FOR THE, WELL-BEING AND
OF ALL OAKVILLE RESIDENTS GOING TO SPEAK TO ISSUES
RELATED VERY SHORTLY. WISH TO EMPHASIZE THAT ONLY
ONE-THIRD OF THE SHORELINE LIGHTS DIRECTLY OUR HOMES
HOMES, SO LIGHTING HAVE BEEN FOR THE NOT
JUST THE LIGHTS AFFECT HOMES.
CONCERNS BY BILL WHO ABLE TO BE HERE.
BILL PRESENTED TO THE MEETING OF THE OF SERVICES
COMMITTEE WEEK AND THEN DECIDED SINCE I WAS AWAY
HE IT THEN. KIND TAGING WITH HIM NOW.
WE TOER, CATH THERE, DUDDECK AND RAY CHISHOLM. ABOUT THREE AGO A.
AND WEED AND ON ISSUES WE HAD WITH THE 2017
LIGHTING PLAN THE PARKING LOT OVER TO THE TO THE WORKS
PARK THIS THAT YOU SIGH IS A
BEAUTIFUL PICTURE 1st. SHOWS A REAL
OAKVILLE ON OUR. SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS HAVE
BEEN LIGHTING PLAN WITH THE PROPOSED, WITH
PROPOSAL THAT CHRIS MARK BROUGHT TO THAT, THE COMMUNITY MEETING,
LAST. CHRIS BROUGHT A PROPOSAL THAT
MADE SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF IMPROVEMENTS. I WANT TO BRIEFLY
COMMENT ON IMPROVEMENTS THAT WERE
PROPOSED AND ENDORSED BY THE COMMITTEE.
THE FIRST CHANGE THAT WAS PROPOSED WAS A CHANGE TO THE
COLOUR TEMPERATURE. THE COLOUR TEMPERATURE IS VERY
IMPORTANT AND IT WAS TO 3,000-DEGREES.
HAS GREAT TO THEER OAKVILLE. THERE’S BEEN LOT OF MEDICAL
RESEARCH DONE ON THE ADVERSE HEALTH IMPACT OF LEDING
HIGHER THAN 3,000-DEGREES IN RECENT.
RECENTLY, THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION ISSUED A
POLICY STATEMENT WARNING OF HEALTH ISSUES RELATED TOS OVER 3
,000-DEGREES FOR LDING., I THAT
EVER MUNICIPALITIES IN NORTH AMERICA AND BEYOND HAS LIGHTING
OVER 3,000-DEGREES. AND I WOULD URGE EVERYBODY TO
PAY TO WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THAT AREA
, BECAUSE IT COULD AFFECT OAKVILLE.
BUT THES HAS BEEN REDUCED IN THE PLAN TO 3,000-
3,000-DEGREES. THANK THE TOWN FOR DOING.
BY THE WAY, JUST OUT OF, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW
WHAT A LIGHT LESS THAN 3,000- 3,000-DEGREES LOOKED, LOOK
AT THE RELAMPING OF THE QE. QEW IS.
ORANGE LIGHTS ARE GOOD AND THEY ARE WELL BELOW THE BAND OF
CONCERN. THE SHORT WAVE LENGTH
BLUE LIGHT THAT’S INSIDE TEMPERATURES OVER 3,000-DEGREES
THAT’S THE. SO WE RESOLVED THAT.
CHECK MARK. THE SECOND THING THAT WAS MADE
AT THE MEETING WAS PROPOSAL ON A NEW LIGHT FIXTURE.
AND THAT LIGHT FIXTURE, IT THE 584.
THE CATALOGUE NUMBER. MARK BROUGHT THAT.
IN A MOTION BY THE.
THE OF THAT LIGHT IS THAT RESPECT
AND PROTECT THE DARK SKY FROM, BY UP TO.
THAT’S A GOOD. GROWING LIFE-STYLE AND LIVE
LIVEABILITY ISSUE IN THE WORLD OF MUNICIPAL LIGHTING, THIS IS A
GENERAL COMMENT, IS THE PROBLEM OF SKY GLOW AND LIGHT POLLUTION
AND ASSOCIATED UP LIGHT. WITH THE MERGE OF LOW COST,ED
LIGHTS. KNOW WHEN WE AT
PURCHASING LIGHTS AT HOME DEPOT OR, – THE ENERGY COSTS
VERSUS THE LIGHT YOU GET FROM THE LIGHT HAS GONE IN FAVOUR
GOOD ECONOMYIES. HOWEVER, ON THE BASIS OF THAT,
MUNICIPALITIES AND THIS IS NOT JUST OAKVILLE, MUNICIPALITIES
HAVE BEEN UP LIGHT INTENSITYIES IN OVER
OVERLIGHTING. THIS THE ACCIDENT
TO VIEW AND ABILITY THE TO THE NIGHT SKY AND
CREATING ANNOYING PEDESTRIAN GLARE.
SURE WE HAVE ALL WALKED ALONG THE STREET AND STREET
LOOKS GREAT AND WE UP AND WE’RE TEMPORARYILY LIGHT
TEMPORARYILY IMPAIRED BY THE GLARE INTO THE
LED LIGHT. AND THAT’S NOT UNLIKE LOOKING
INTO THE SUN. GOING TO THE PHOTO NOW.S WERE ALSO ENDORSED BY
THE COMMITTEE AND THE PASSED LAST.
MARK HASED WITH THE SUPPLIER OVER THE PAST WEEK
COME UP WITH A ZEROED COST SHIELD THAT WOULD PRESERVE THE
EXTERIOR APPEARANCE OF THE FIXTURE WHILE SIGNIFICANTLY
REDUCING LIGHT TRESPASS ON TO RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES
FROM TALL LIGHTS. THIS PHOTO IS AN EXAMPLE
THAT I TOOK OF LIGHT TRESPASS AND WHY SHIELD ARE.
THE LIGHTING FROM THE STREET LIGHT.
YOU CAN SEE THE BRIGHT LIGHT ON THE STREET GOES DOWN OVER
THE FOUNTAIN, ACROSS THE LAWN, AND UP INTO MY KITCHEN
BECAUSE THAT’S MY HOUSE, OK THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE
MOST EXAMPLE OF LIGHT TRESPASS IN THE CITY OF OAKVILLE
OAKVILLE. IN TERMS OF LIGHT TRESPASS,
THEN IN THE MOTION LAST, THE COMMITTEEED STAFF TO
LOOK AT NOT PUTTING SHIELDS ON, BUT TO THE LIGHTS A
COUPLE OF. BY THAT, IT WILL MAKE A
SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE LIGHT TRESPASS.
SO CHRIS MARK HAS COME UP WITH A NO ADDED COST TO NOT
ONLY PUT SHIELDS ON BUT TO REDUCE THE HEIGHTS AND PROPOSE
THE NEW LIGHT FIXTURE. THIS ACTION WITH THE SHIELDS
AND THE REDUCE REDUCED HEIGHT IS GOING A LONG TO ELIMINATING
THE RESIDENTIAL LIGHT PASS ON THE OF OUR HOMES WHERE OUR ARE.
GO BACK TO THE SAME SLIDE I WITH.
SO I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST – , I WOULD LIKE TO THE
COMMITTEE FOR THE THREE CHANGES THAT CHRIS BROUGHT
FORWARD. AND LIKE TO REQUEST THAT
COUNCIL WHEN IT’S BROUGHT FORWARD FOR A MOTION THAT THEY
APPROVE THEM. I NEGLECTED TO THAT IED MY
ENTIRE CAREER IN HIGH TECH.
IED IN DESIGNING AND SOME OF THE MOST
ADVANCED COMPUTERS IN THE. AND INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH,
EARLY PART OF MY CAREER, AS PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER, IED
AS AING CONSULTANT FOUR MONTHS
I WORKED AS AING CONSULTANT
SO LIKE TO BRIEFLY MAKE ONE FINAL REQUEST OF THE TOWN
AND TOWN COUNCIL. AND I BELIEVE THIS IS IMPORTANT
IT’S A SLIGHT – THIS 584 FIXTURE HAS VARIOUS DIFFERENTS.
LIKE TO THE OF THAT NEW FIXTURE, THE TOWN TO CONSIDER AN. WHAT IT
IS. THE POWER INPUT TO THIS 584
LIGHT FIXTURE IS PLANNED AT 60 WATTS. ALSO A 40 WATT VERSION.
AND THE COLOUR TEMPERATURE REMAINS AT 3,000.
LIGHT SPREAD STAYS THE SAME WHICH IS VERY GOOD.
A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT BOUNCE COMES OFF IT, WHICH REDUCE THE
SKY. HOWEVER, THE LIGHT IS DIMMED
SIGNIFICANTLY OPERATING COST SAVINGS IF IT’S TO 40
WATTS. THE GLARE WILL BE.
WHICH IMPROVES THE VISION OF THOSE THAT ARE WALKING AS
PEDESTRIANS THE WALKWAY. IS A FAIRLY
SIGNIFICANT SO TO, I WANT TO USE TWO
SIMPLE ANALGAES. YOU’RE DRIVING ON THE TOWARDS A
CAR. THERE’S A HIGH BEAM LOW
BEAM. WHICH LIGHT DO YOU PREFER, THE
BEAM LOW BEAM? IN YOUR, AND YOU THE LIGHTS, DO
YOU TURN THE LAMP ON THE COFFEE TABLE ON
OR THE OCCASIONAL TABLE? OR PUT THE LIGHT IN THE OF THE
CEILING ON? ANALOGYIES.
THISS VISIBILITY BUT WITH DIFFERENCES IN OF THE AND STRAIN
TO THE EYE. I WOULD SUGGEST TO YOU THAT AT
40 WATTS THERE WILL BE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN THE
ENJOYMENT WHILE RETAINING THE VISIBILITY PEDESTRIANS
THATWAY.>>Mayor Burton: MR. McISAAC Mc
MacISAAC. YOUR INFORMATION.
YOUR TIME EXPIRE. MORE?
>>I HAVE ONE MINUTE.>>Mayor Burton: I’LL INDULGE
YOU.>>PARDON ME?
>>Mayor Burton: GO AHEAD.>>.
SO I ALSO WANT TO THAT THERE ARE FIXTURES
THIS ON WALKER STREET. PARDON ME.
I SHOULD SAY ON WALKER STREET IN THE SAME DISTANCE ON
THEWAY, THERE WILL FIVE OF THESE.
SO BY REDUCING THE WATTAGE, THERE BE THAT BIG A
DIFFERENCE. THERE’S ALTERNATIVE TO REDUCE
THE WATT. WITH THE 60 WATT
HOWEVER, THE LIGHT FIXTURES COME DIMMABLE, BUILT INTO.
AND IF YOU BUY A LOW COST CONTROLLER, THE LIGHT INTENSITY
CAN BE DIALED UP AT DIFFERENT TIMES.
THE TOWN WOULD HAVE INFINITE FLEXIBILITY.
I WOULD SUGGEST THAT ONE OF THOSE OPTIONS WOULD BE MUCH
APPRECIATED AND I WANT TO THANK CATHY AND RAY FOR THE WORK THEY
HAVE. I WANT TO MENTION PARTICULAR
TO RAY THE WEST HARBOUR IS THROUGH A OF CHANGE TO
THE CHARACTER OF. I DON’T WANT TO GO THROUGH ALL
THE CHANGE., RAY IS HAS A LONG WAY
WORKING WITH THE NEIGHBOURS TO TRY AND THE
OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD. THANK YOU, RAY, AND CATHY TOO.
CHRIS AND COLLEEN BELL HAVE BEEN UNDERSTANDING AND TOOK A LITTLE
WHILE. THEY HAVE BEEN VERY
UNDERSTANDING WORKING WITH US IN GETTING THE CHANGES CHANGES THAT
HAVE BEEN.
LAST ITEM WOULD MAKE A BIG.>>Mayor Burton: THANK YOU FOR
YOUR. MADAME CLERK THE NEXT.
>>The Clerk: NEXT IS WADE, ALSO SPEAKING TO THE
OAKVILLE HARBOUR WEST SHORE MAST MASTER PLAN WALKWAY LIGHTING.>>Mayor Burton: WELCOME MR.
MR. WADE.>>THANK YOU.
>>Mayor Burton: COUNCIL LOOKS TO YOUR INFORMATION
>>FOR TO ME. NO SLIDES.>>Mayor Burton: YOU DON’T NEED.
>>I’M SORRY ABOUT THAT. NO PRETTY.
I WILL ADMIT I DO NOT LIVE ANYWHERE NEAR THE LAKE
I LIVE UP NEAR THE HIGH SCHOOL BUT MY INTEREST TONIGHT IS
BECAUSE I HAVE USED HARBOUR FOR OVER 25 YEARS.
PROBABLY SAILED IN AND OUT OF IT A GOOD 1 OR.
, DARK,,, SNOW, FREEZING, ANCHOR GONE, THE USUAL THING.
THE REASON I’M HERE TONIGHT IS EARLY THIS MONTH, I DROVE A BOAT
NIGHT FROM HAMILTON TO OAKVILLE HARBOUR.
I’M NOT SURE HOW MANY OF YOU ON THE WATER AT NIGHT OR SAIL
EVEN GO THE.IT’S A DIFFERENT WORLD OUT
THERE. IT’S DARK.
IT’S PEACE. IT’S BEAUTIFUL.
COMFORTABLE IN DOING SO BECAUSE I KNEW I WOULD BE ABLE
TO CLEARLY SEE THE NAVIGATION LIGHTS, ARE THE RED, GREEN
GREEN, WHITE, OF THE OTHER BOATS ON THE LAKE.
AND THAT EVENING I GUESS THE ARE RUNNING, A OF BOATS.
15, 20 BOATS THAT I HAD TO ZIG ZAG THROUGH WE ALL DO ON THE, TO
SAFELY THERE. KNOWS THE OF THE
ROAD. SAFE MAKES FOR LOVELY EVENING.
ON THE SHORELINE, HOWEVER, IS A. OUR SHORELINE MUST REMAIN DARK.
OTHERWISE THE ABILITY TO SEE OTHER BOATS FOR THOSE OF WHO
HAVE BEEN OUT ON THE WATER AT, IT IS SEVERELY IMPAIRED.
GREATLY THE LIKELIHOOD OF AN ACCIDENT.
LIKE WALKING IN THE DARK AND SOMEBODY A FLASH LIGHT
AND PUTS IN YOUR EYES. BLINDED.IF YOU’RE ON A HIGHWAY,
INSTANTLY YOU CAN’T SEE OTHER CARS.
YOU CAN’T SEE ANYTHING AROUND YOU.
A WITH SHORELINE LIGHT.
AS YOU APPROACH A HARBOUR, IT HAS TO BE.
YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE OTHER BOATS OR WE SAW
RECENT THIS SUMMER IN, YOU’RE TO SOMEBODY.
IT’S TO. SOMEONE IS TO.
THE NEW WALKWAY AND IT IS.I MUST , IT’S STUNNING.
WATCHED OVER THE LAST YEARS BEING BUILT.
DONE AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL JOB.
AND IT IS WELCOME, MIND YOU, THIS IS FOREMOST AN
ACTIVE HARBOUR. THIS IS NOT A WALKWAY PUT ON THE
SHORE. AN ACTIVE HARBOUR
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. SITUATION I REQUEST COUNCIL PUT ANY
LIGHTING, LIGHTING ON THE NEW PATHS OR ON THE PARKING LOTS
AS THIS IS RIGHT IN THE’S. FAR TOO CLOSE.
OAKVILLE HARBOUR HAS BEEN FOR OVER 150 YEARS.
NEVER HAD SHOREING. WE SHOULD NOT BE CREATING UNSAFE
CONDITIONS THAT COULD PUT PEOPLE PEOPLE’S LIVES EVENTUALLY AT.
, I DO HAVE – IF I MAY BE PERMITTED A OF.
ANYONE ON COUNCIL OR PERHAPS STAFF WHO DURING THE
DESIGN PHASE OF THE WEST HARBOUR LOOK AT HAD AN ENGINEERING
STUDY DONE WAS THERE ANY STUDY DONE ON THE
EFFECT OF THE PROPOSED LIGHTING TO BOAT SAFETY?
>>Mayor Burton: MR. WADE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH YOUR
INFORMATION. AND COUNCIL IN DUE COURSE
ASK QUESTIONS IT NEEDS MAKE A DECISION
>>. I JUST HAVE SIX SECONDS,.
BUT IF I COULD GET. I DON’T KNOW THAT’S
THE CASE. YOU AN EXAMPLE OF
THE TOWN OF OAKVILLE DID A BRILLIANT JOB.
IF YOU AT THE NEW RE REDEVELOPMENT OF BRONTE HARBOUR.
HARBOUR IS EXCELLENT. COME FROM THE LAKE,

YOU GET TO YOUR. ANOTHER GOOD THING ABOUT BRONTE
AND THIS IS ALL WE’RE ASKING FOR OAKVILLE, THERE ARE NO SHORE
LIGHTS ON BRONTE HARBOUR. TO THE WEST IS THE PARK.
DARK AT NIGHT. TO THE EAST ISWATER.
IT IS AT. SO AS YOU APPROACH FROM OUTSIDE,
YOUR IS NOT BLIND. YOU CAN SEE THE OTHER BOATS.
INDEED THE LIGHT. JUST ASKING IF IT HAS NOT
BEEN. A SAFETY ISSUE. AN AESTHETIC AS
PRESENTED EARLIER. I THINK IT’S INCUMBENT UPON
TO THE STUDY DOWN AND DONE A COMPETENT ENGINEER SO
ALL THAT WE’RE NOT A. DO NOT WANT PUT PEOPLE
LIVES AT RISK THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU EVERYBODY. COMPLETES THE HOUSEKEEPING
WORK THE WORK OF OUR
STANDING COMMITTEES. IT IS MY PLEASURE AT THIS TIME
TO PROVIDE YOU MY ANNUAL OAKVILLE STATE OF THE TOWN
REMARKS. AND TONIGHT IF
PERMITS, .
SO TONIGHT AN UNUSUAL APPROACH, I’M A SLIDE
TALK A. LET’S SEE HOW GOES.
AND IF A HIT, WE’LL AGAIN.
IT’S NOT, WE’LL NEVER DO. A LOT OF.
SO I THOUGHT I WOULD START WITH SOME BASICS.
I KNOW THAT MANY OF THE PUBLIC HAVE SOME PARTICULAR ON
THEIR. SOME INFORMATION NOT
ANSWERS FOR OF THOSE. START THE FACT
MUNICIPALITIES MANY MOVING PARTS AND MUNICIPAL PARTS MOVING
VERY WELL. AND THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO IS
THE RULES IN THE OF THE GAME SO TO SPEAK WAYS
THAT THEY DID NOT CAMPAIGN TO DO DO.
AND MY VIEW AREES, OUR AND OUR QUALITY OF LIFE
ARE AT SOME RISK. SO WITH THAT AS SETTING
THESE REMARKS, I WANT TO FIRST TO HOW THE MUNICIPALITY IS
ORGANIZED, BECAUSE ONE OF THE THINGS I HAVE LEARNED OVER THE
YEARS I HAVE BEEN MAYOR IS THAT THE STRUCTURE OF THE
MUNICIPALITY IS NOT CLEAR EVERYBODY.
THAT’S BECAUSE WE HAVE SEVERAL OF MUNICIPAL STRUCTURES IN
THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO. AND SO START WITH THE
QUESTION, WHAT IS OAKVILLE ANYWAY?
OAKVILLE MY SUBMISSION IS ONE OF FOUR LOCAL PARTNERS A TWO
TIER CO-OPERATETIVE SERVICES BODY THAT IS CALLED
HALTON REGION. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE
1974. 45 YEARS.
AND SO ALWAYS I MEET NEWCOMERS
NEWCOMERS DON’T UNDERSTAND OR. EXPLAIN IT’S 45 YEARS
GO OH. HAS GIVEN ANYBODY THIS PICTURE BEFORE.
HERE IS A PICTURE THAT DISPLAYS THAT ORGANIZATION.
YOU CAN SEE HERE THAT AT THE LOCAL MUNICIPAL LEVEL, THE FOUR
PARTNERS IN HALTON REGION OPERATE CALLED LOCAL GOVERNMENT.
BURLINGTON TO DO THIS HAS A COUNCIL OF AND ALL TO THE
REGIONAL COUNCIL. HALTON HILLS HAS NINE
COUNCILLORS AND SENDS THREE OF THEM REGIONAL COUNCIL. MILTON
HAS 11 COUNCILLORS AND THEY SEND FIVE OF THEM TO
COUNCIL. PAND WE HAVE 15 COUNCILLOR,
WE SEND OF US TO THE REGIONAL COUNCIL.
AND THATS 24 WHEN INCLUDE THE CHAIR MR. GARY CARR
CARR,’S BEEN OUR CHAIR FOR GOING ON 13 YEARS NOW.
HE ALSO DISGUISEED HIMSELF AS A PROFESSIONAL.
NOW, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CAME IN MY INTERVIEW THE
SPECIAL ADVISORS TO THE MINISTER ON THE AMALGAMATION OR THE
REGIONAL GOVERNMENT REVIEW. GOVERNANCE REVIEW AS
THEY STYLE, IS THE COST OF COUNCIL.
I OWE COUNCILLOR ADAMS THIS WORK.
BASICALLY WENT AND ADDED UP EVERYTHING THEY SPEND ON THEIR,
INCLUDING STAFF ANDS AND EVERYTHING WE SPEND
IN ORDER TO SHOW THAT OUR LARGER COUNCIL ACTUALLY COSTS $120,000
A YEAR LESS THAN THEIRS. RESULT IS THAT YOU HAVE FAR
MORE LOCAL ACCESS, FAR MORE LOCAL CONTACT TO YOUR MEMBERS OF
. DOES MATTER? IN SEPTEMBER SEPTEMBER OF LAST,
THE PREMIER WAS ON GLOBAL TELEVISION
I HAPPENED TO SEE. BEING ASKED ABOUT HIS THERE ARE
TOO MANY LOCAL POLITICIAN.
THIS IS. HE SAID, EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT IN
THE CORPORATE WORLD, BEST PRACTICE IS TO HAVE A BOARD OF
DIRECTORS OF 7 TO 9. ADDED, I EXPECT EVERY
MUNICIPALITY ONTARIO TO IN., I’M HERE ARGUE WITH
THE, BUT AWARE OF CORPORATE BOARDS, SOME
OF OUR MAJOR BANKS A BIT BIGGER THAN THAT.
YOU CAN LOOK IT UP. SO HERE AT THE TOWN, WE DIVIDE
OUR TERRITORY INTO WARDS. THESE FINE PEOPLE YOUR, SIX
WOMEN AND NINE. AND REPRESENTATIVE. SEE WARD 1
ON MAP. WHERE BETH ROBERTSON AND O’MEARA
SHARE REPRESENTATION DUTIES WITH ONE
OF THE ONES REGION.
SIMILAR, COUNCILLOR CHISHOLM AND COUNCILLOR CATHY
REPRESENT THE SOUTH CENTRAL PART
AND COUNCILLOR IS THE ONE WHO SITS ON THE REGIONAL
COUNCIL. ON THE WARD 3 END OF THIS,
THAT’S YOU FIND TOWN COUNCILLOR JANET
AND TOWN REGIONAL COUNCILLOR DAVE GITTINGS.
ON THE WARD 4 PART OF THE MAP IS WHERE YOU FIND TOWN COUNCILLOR
PETER LONGO AND HIS TOWN AND REGIONAL COUNCILLOR
COLLEAGUE ALLAN ELGAR WHO COULDN’T BE WITH US.
IN WARD 5 IS WHERE YOU FIND TOWN COUNCILLOR MARC AND
AND REGIONAL COUNCILLOR KNOLL.
WARD 6 IS WHERE TOWN COUNCILLOR NATALIA AND AND
REGIONAL COUNCILLOR ADAMS 7 IS BY TOWN
COUNCILLOR SANDHU AND TOWN AND REGIONAL COUNCILLOR PARMAR WHO
IS ON MATERNITY LEAVE. , ANOTHER THING THAT PEOPLE
ARE ALWAYS WONDERING ABOUT IS THE OF OAKVILLE?
POPULATION? OUR POPULATION IN THE CENSUS WAS
REPORTED AS 194,000,. ABOUT 36% OF THE
POPULATION OF HALTON. AND WE HAVE THE OTHER
MUNICIPALITIES ARE HERE. I TO REPEAT
THEM. BUT WHAT’S INTERESTING IS WHEN
YOU MOVE FORWARD TO TODAY, AND WE DO THIS – AN, NOT THE CENSUS
, BUT IT’S BASED ON CONSTRUCTION
ACTIVITY. YOU’LL SEE THAT WE TEND TO STAY
AROUND 36% OF THE POPULATION OF HALTON.
AND YOU ALSO THAT WE’RE A NICE 600,000., IF WE WERE TO BE
PUT ON THE SAME REGIME THAT THE CITY OF’S
COUNCIL WAS PUT ON WHERE ONE COUNCILLOR PER ROUGHLY
100,000 IS, YOU COULD SEE A POSSIBILITY HERE OF SIX COUNCIL
MEMBERS AND A A MAYOR IF A CITY OF HALTON OR IF
THERE WAS AN ORDER FROM THE TO CHANGE THE SIZE OF
THE REGIONAL COUNCIL. IF THE PROVINCE HAS
AN APPETITE TO REACH DOWN TO THE LOCAL MUNICIPAL LEVEL.
NAME THEY GAVE REVIEW ACTIVITY IS REGIONAL GOVERNANCE
REVIEW. , A CONSTITUENT OF THAT.
WE’LL TO WAIT AND SEE.NOW ANOTHER THING THAT’S ALWAYS OF A
TO PEOPLE THAT MOST, IS THAT A
GREAT DEAL OF THE RATEABLE IN OAKVILLE YOU
SPEAK THE REGION AS A. SO 36%, WE HAVE 42% OF
THE TAXABLE. THE IS THAT OUT OF HALTON TAX
DOLLAR, 42 CENTS OF IT COMES OUT OF
OAKVILLE. THE OTHERS AS YOU
HERE.THIRTY-THREE CENTS, 16 AND 9., THAT’S VERY,
USUALLY TO PEOPLE IS TO DISCOVER THAT ALL
POWERS ARE EXERCISEED ONLY BY RESOLUTIONS OF.
COUNCIL MEMBERS CAN’T GO PEOPLE.
AND THAT A MAYOR HAS ONLY ONE VOTE PLUS THE LEADERSHIP DUTIES
C.E.O. FOR THE TOWN. AND LEADERSHIP DUTIES THE
DUTIES NOT ORRELATED. THAT’S THE TO AND
LEAD AS POSED TO DIRECT OPPOSED AND
OUR COUNCILS AT BOTH LEVELS SEEK .
WE DON’T ACHIEVE IT, BUT DO IT. I THINK THREATS A GREAT OF
LIVING IN OAKVILLE. ALL MUNICIPAL POWER COMES FROM
PROVINCE. THIS IS A BIG SURPRISE TO A LOT
OF PEOPLE THINK THAT IS
THEIR OWN SPHERE. BUT GO AT THE
CANADIAN, YOU DISCOVER THAT NO GOVERNMENT
THERE’S ONLY FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL
AND PROVINCIAL LEVEL CREATES REGULATE THE
LEVEL. AND THE HAS A VETO OVER
ALLS. SO IT CAN A LITTLE BIT
THE OLD OF MOTHER I IF YOU REMEMBER CHILD EVER OF THAT
OR OTHERS. – ROLE OF A
MUNICIPALITY WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT IN A TECHNICAL WAY IT’S
MUNICIPAL SERVICE DELIVERY CORPORATION MENTIONED. CREATED
BY PROVINCE. AND THE’S
GOVERNANCE REVIEW WHICH I HAVE A COUPLE OF TIMES
BEING DELAYED IT’S BEING DELAYED AFTER
THE FEDERAL ELECTION., I WANT TO TURN SERVICES
BECAUSE I THINK THAT’S ANOTHER AREA PEOPLE A CERTAIN
FAMILIARITY PEOPLE DON’T HAVE ABOUT THE.
OAKVILLE COUNCIL A MAJORITY OF US SIT AT THE
REGIONAL COUNCIL, WE TEND TO THINK THE MUNICIPALITY
BEING IN. A LOCAL ELEMENT AND UPPER.
WE ARE BOTH. SO GOING TO YOU
OUR TAXES BUY AT THE DIFFERENT LEVELS. PROPERTY TAX
ALSO GOES TO. OUT OF OAKVILLE, 106 MILLION
APPROXIMATELY TO THE PROVINCE FOR SCHOOLS.
197 MILLION OF TAX TO THE TOWN LIKE FIRE, LIBRARY, PARKS, AND
TRANSIT. ABOUT 182 MILLION GOES THE REGION FOR AND AND AND
POLICE AND AND THINGS.
THEN THERE’S WATER WATER IS A BIGIVE.
WHEN OPEN YOUR TAP, YOU HAVE PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA
HOW EXPENSIVE THAT WATER THAT FROM YOUR IS. TELL.
OUT OF OAKVILLE WE’RE 36% POPULATION,
ABOUT 360 MILLION FOR WATER REGION TO SUSTAIN WATER.
360 TO 182, 197, SEE BIG BITE
YOUR DOLLAR, ON YOUR COMES FROM YOUR.
YOU IT UP, THE HALTON SPENDS ALMOST A BILLION
DOLLARS THE TOWN OF OAKVILLE SPENDS 300
MILLION. THOSE NUMBERS IMPORTANT
LATER. NOW WHEN LOOK THOSE
SERVICES. WHAT I HAVE IS SHOWN YOU
HOW MUCH TAX INTO EACH SERVICE
THE ORANGE AND BROWN ARE THE REGIONAL ONES.
THE GREEN ARE THE LOCAL OAKVILLE . YOU WILL SEE, YOU TO TAKE AWAY
FROM THERE YOU TO BIG BIGGEST TOWN SPENDS IS,
MAINTENANCE AND RENEW.THEN THE NEXT BIGGEST ONES
ARE FIRE TRANSIT. AND, WELL, THREE BIGGEST ARE,
LOCAL AND BUT LET’S REMEMBER AND
TRANSIT BECAUSE GOING TO COME BACK THOSE LATER.NOW, VERY
TO TELL YOU THAT GREAT HAS BEEN
MADE POVERTY. AND I DON’T KNOW THAT AT THE
LOCAL LEVEL CAN MUCH CREDIT FOR THAT.
I CAN TELL YOU THAT IT’S NOT OUR JOB TO REDUCE AT THE
LOCAL LEVEL. POVERTY IS SOMETHING
ADDRESSED BY THES SPHERE OF JURISDICTION AND INFLUENCE OF
THE FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL., MADE
AT THE LOCAL LEVEL SUPPORTING OR ANTI
ANTIPOVERTY MEASURES AS I’M ABOUT TO.
THAT IS WE HAVE BEEN INCREASING THE NUMBER
OF NEW HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES
AND THAT, OVER THE LAST 12, 13 YEARS ADDED ABOUT 1700
NEW SOCIAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES TO THE ALMOST 4, WE
STARTED WITH THAT’S SOME.
WE HAVE ALSO ADOPTED UNANIMOUSLY A SAFETY AND
WELL-BEING PLAN. WE WERE THE FIRST LARGE
MUNICIPALITY THAT AT THE OF THE PROVINCE.
VERY, VERY PLEASED TO THAT THE SAFETY
AND WELL-BEING PLAN WAS CREATED UNDER PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT. THE
CURRENT GOVERNMENT ENOUGH VALUE IN IT TO A
PROPONENT OF. IT FOLLOWED THROUGH AND ORDERED
THEIES TO CREATE THEM.
THE COMMUNITY SAFE AND PLAN ALLOWS US TO OUR RESOURCES ON
THE SAFETY AND WELL-BEING OF OUR
RESIDENTS AND IT WORKS IN CO-OPERATION WITH THE POLICE
IT’S A GREAT. FIND IT ON HALTON.CA
HALTON.CA. UPPER LEVEL,
ALSO FOR THE THE ONTARIO DISABILITY SUPPORT
PAYMENT PROGRAM AND WORKS.
AND BECAUSE THE PROVINCE HISTORICALLY I’M NOT BLAMING
THIS. THIS IS ENDEMIC TO THE
GOVERNMENT NO MATTER WHO IS POWER, RELATIVE TO OUR
PERCEPTION IN OUR MUNICIPALITY AT THE LEVEL, THE ODS
AND OW HAVE NOT BEEN ADEQUATE AND
SUPPLEMENTING THE’S IN THIS AREA .
IN ADDITION THAT, WE HAVE OVER THE LAST 13 YEARS
THE HALTON COMMUNITY INVESTMENT FUND WHICH GONE FROM 8000
A YEAR TO $3 MILLION A YEAR APPROXIMATELY AND YOU
COMBINE WITH THE UNITED WAY AND THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
REPRESENT THE MAJOR OF FUNDS FOR, CALL THEM THE
NON GOVERNMENTS THE CIVIL SOCIETY GROUPS
WORK TO THE NEEDY AMONG. MENTIONING UNITED.
MAYOR I’M PROUD TO TELL YOU I RAISE $200,000 A
FOR THE UNITED. I SUPPORT THEMLY.
I HOPE THAT YOU WILL. THE UNITED HAS UNDER
ITS WING TWO IMPORTANT INITIATIVES
ONE OF THESE IS THE COMMUNITY BENEFITS COMMITTEE
SEEKING TO THE OF THE OF THE NEW NEAR HOSPITAL
AN OPPORTUNITY TO TRAINING AND JOB OPPORTUNITIES
FOR PEOPLE NEED A OUT OF THEIR IN., THE UNITED WAY HAS
ALSO ADOPTED THE STRATEGY OF THIS HALTON POVERTY
ROUNDTABLE. AND I AM ASSISTING THEM IN THEIR
WORK., THE BIGGEST CHANGE HAS BEEN
THE CANADA BENEFIT AND ANALYST HAVE SHOWN THAT
THAT HAS ACTUALLY ACHIEVE A 20% IN.
SO EFFORTS, I THINK, HAVE BEEN GOOD ABOUT COMFORTING BUT
NOT NECESSARILY MOVING THE NEEDLE VERY, THE CANADA
CHILD BENEFIT TRULY MADE A DIFFERENCE.
, OAKVILLE’S TOWN REVENUE DON’T ALL COME FROM PROPERTY
TAX. , IT USED TO BE MORE THAN
59%, BUT OVER THE LAST 13 YEARS, WE THAT PERCENTAGE DOWN
AND TO PROPERTY TAX, WE ALSO HAVE USEER,
GRANTS WE ALSO HAVE AND INTEREST.
AND THE FINE FROM OAKVILLE ENTERPRISES AND OAKVILLE HYDRO
ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR A GOOD PORTION OF THE AND
OTHER NON TAX REVENUE THAT RECEIVE
AND BE SPEAKING TONIGHT ABOUT THEIR WORK.
, TO DISCUSS OF THE THAT WE’RE.
THE FIRST ONE I’M QUITE PROUD OF.
AND THIS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE THERE’S LOT OF MISCONCEPTION
ABOUT HOW ASSESSMENT GROWTH IMPACTS THE PROPERTY TAX RATE.
THE ACTUAL PROPERTY TAX RATE SINCE 2008.
THE IT GOES, THE TAX RATE MUST BE RESET TO AVOID ANY
PROFIT FROM ASSESSMENT. YOU’RE NOT GROWING YOUR TAX
INCREASES INCREASES MORE THAN THE RATE OF
INFLATION, AND ASSESSMENT GROWTH IS BETTER THAN THAT, YOU
MATHEMATICALLY GET A DECREASEING TAX RATE.
THIS IS THE TOTAL FOR THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT.
THE REGIONAL GOVERNMENT AND.>> THE TOTAL PROPERTY
TAX PATH OVER THE LAST MANY YEARS SAY 20 YEARS.
WHAT YOU’LL SEE IS THAT THE, BEFORE THE CURRENT ERA IN WHICH
WE ADOPTED SOMETHING CALLED OUTCOMES, ALSO KNOWN
AS PERFORM-BASED BUDGETING, PB2, ON THE RED, THE BEFORE,
THAT’S WHAT WE WERE EXPERIENCING.
AND WHAT PB2 HAS ALLOWED US TO DO IS TO CONTINUALLY SEEK AND
ACHIEVE EFFICIENTCYIES THAT ALLOW
US THAT DOWNWARD PATH AND TAX INCREASES EVEN WHILE WE HAVE
INCREASED, WE HAVE INCREASED SO MUCH THE AND SERVICES
THAT OUR RESIDENTS DEMAND AND ENJOY.
LAST YEAR, THE OAKVILLE TOTAL TAX INCREASE WAS 1.47%.
TO MAKE THATFUL, NEED TO COMPARE TO OF OUR
NEIGHBOURS. DOOR IN BURLINGTON THEY
GOT THEIR TO 1.96. MISSISSAUGA TOUCH HIGHER.
2.55. NOW, IN THE COMING YEAR, WE’RE
DOING THE BUDGET NOW FOR NEXT YEAR.
THIS IS WHAT I BELIEVE OUR TAX INCREASE WILL BE FOR ALL OF OUR
AND SCHOOL. THAT’S BECAUSE WE’RE BRINGING
STREAM A NEW LIBRARY, A NEW REC CENTRE A NEW FIRE.
THE OPERATING COSTS THAT HAVE TO BE RECKONED WITH.
OUR NEIGHBOURS NEXT IN BURLINGTON ARE SAYING,,
THEY’RE FOR 2%. I AM PREDICTING MISSISSAUGA WILL
PIT 3 AND TORONTO WILL STAY 2.5. BUT A THING CALLED
MUNICIPAL LAND TRANSFER TAX. IT IS SO MUCH. IS THE ONLY CITY
THAT CAN LEVY THAT.
THERE IS SO MUCH MONEY INTO THE CITY IN THAT
TAX IF THEY DIDN’T HAVE, THEIR TAX INCREASE WOULD BE MUCH
MORE DRAMATIC THAN THAT. CERTAINLY MUCH MORE DRAMATIC
THAN THE REST US. TALKS ABOUT TAX
INCREASES, BUT GET TO HIDE BEHIND THE SKIRTS OF THE
MUNICIPAL LAND TRANSFER. , DEBT IS ANOTHER THING THAT
PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS ASKING ABOUT. I’M GOING TO FROM THE
BOTTOM HERE. HAS DEBT, TOTAL DEBT
EQUAL TO, IN 2019, EQUAL TO MORE THAN 200% THEIR REVENUES
THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO LAST YEAR HAD TOTAL DEBT EQUAL TO 245
245% OF THEIR REVENUE. AND OAKVILLE AND HALTON ON A
CONSOLIDATED BASIS ARE LESS THAN 1%
BECAUSE HALTON HAS NO TAX PAID.
OAKVILLE ONLY HAS A. THAT WORKS OUT TO ABOUT 1.4%
OUR REVENUE. ON THE FUTURE SIDE, I’M
EXPECTING THAT OUR SHARE OF DEBT TO REVENUE WILL REDUCE AND AS I
UNDERSTAND IT, CANADA CAN EXPECT A SMALL INCREASE AND I HAVE BEEN
THE PROMISE THE FEDERAL ELECTION WE’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF.
ONTARIO’S DEBT PERCENTAGE WILL COME ABOUT
5%. TO ACHIEVE WHAT WE, WE USE
SEVEN FISCAL TOOLS. THE DOWNLOADS BY THE
PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT BEFORE 2003. PREVIOUS TIME THE
PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVES IN GOVERNMENT, THE HARRIS.
AND HERE NEED TO GIVE CREDIT TO HALTON CHAIR GARY CARR.
IN THE MEETING WHERE THE FINANCE MINISTER OF THE DAY
RESPONDED TO THE ARGUMENT OF THE HEADS OF COUNCIL AND INCLUDING
HIS, AND AGREED TO REVERSE THE DOWNLOADS AND THATAL WAS
SPREAD OUT OVER 7 TO, ON WHICH DOWNLOADS.
THAT IS ALL BEHIND US. SO THAT MEANS IS IN
PARTICULAR, MOST EGREGIOUS PART OF THE DOWNLOAD WAS FOR A, IN
HALTON WERE SENDING MONEY TO THE CITY OF TORONTO TO
SUBSIDIZE THEIR LOW TAX RATE. THAT’S FINALLY GONE, FOR. ALSO
MAXIMIZEED DEVELOPMENT FEES.
WHAT PAY FOR TO THE EXTENT THE PROVINCE PERMITS.
AND EVER SINCE DECEMBER 8th, 1997, WHEN THE PROVINCE AMENDED
THE DEVELOPMENT CHARGES ACT, DEVELOPMENTS HAVEED
TO CAPTURE OF THE COSTS OF GROWTH.
AND WE HAVE HAD OUR FINANCE DEPARTMENTS THAT GAP
AND THE ESTIMATES HOVER AROUND 15%.
WE HAVE REDUCED TAX PAID DEBT BY 88%.
AND WE HAVE CREATED NEW NON TAX REVENUE, AS I SAID, THANKS TO
THE MEN WOMEN AT THE OAKVILLE ENTERPRISES OAKVILLE
HYDRO. AND WE HAVEED USEER FEES TO
THE CONSUMER PRICE. IT WAS THE CUSTOM BEFORE 13
YEARS AGO TO RESPOND TO REQUESTS TO HOLD THE FEES FOR ARENAS AND
POOLS EVERYTHING, AND SHIFT ALL THOSE COSTS TO THE
PROPERTY TAX. THAT HAD THE RESULT THAT FEES
FOR THE SERVICES THAT WE CONSUME WERE FLAT RELATIVE TO THE
INFLATION RATE AND THE PROPERTY TAX WAS GOING
UP AT AN UNSUSTAINABLE. WE ALSO AS I SAID ADOPTED
OUTCOMES. B2 AS I LOVELY REFER IT.
THE ONLY GOVERNMENT IN CANADA AT ANY LEVEL IN ANY
PLACE THAT USES PERFORMANCE PERFORMANCE-BASED BUDGET.
WE ALSO CONDUCT REGULAR VALUE ANDCY AUDITS AND TRIM 2
AND $3 MILLION OUT OF OUR OPERATIONS.
WE DO THAT BY FOR NEW TECHNOLOGICAL EFFICIENTCY,
REORGANIZEING OUR STAFF DEPLOY DEPLOYMENT AND ADJUSTING
ACCORDING TO THE MARKET AND THE DEMAND THAT WE SEE AT THE DOOR.
NOW, THE REVERSED DOWNLOADS BY THE PCs IS A TOOL WE’RE
GOING TO HAVE IN THE BECAUSE THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT
HAS TAKEN STEPS AROUND DEVELOPMENT CHARGES THAT AREN’T
FRIENDLY ON THAT. AND I’M, WHAT I MEAN TO
SAY IS THERE ARE DOWNLOADS HAVE BEEN SENT WAY FOR THE
COMING FISCAL YEAR. I’M GOING TO ABOUT
THOSE. THEY HAVE ALSO MADE CHANGES TO
DEVELOPMENT FEES THAT ARE AGAINST OUR INTEREST.
OUR GROWTH PATH BY CENSUS.
AS SEE, OUR NEW PLAN LIVABLE OAKVILLE ALLOWED
TO THE AT WHICH WE GROW AND THAT ALSO I
MENTION THAT GROWTH ISN’T FULLY PAYING FOR GROWTH, THAT IS
ANOTHER SOURCE OF THE, THAT’S ANOTHER REASON FOR WHY THE TAX
INCREASE TREND IS DOWN. NOW, OF GROWTH, THIS IS
THE GROWTH THAT WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN ORDERED TO ACCOMMODATE.
YOU KNOW, IT’S 2019 NOW. IN 2031, WE HAVE A GROWTH
FORECAST OF ABOUT 290,000 RESIDENTS.
WE ARE I TOLD YOU ABOUT 211,. AND THE 2031 TO 2041 LOCAL
FORECASTS ARE DUE NEXT YEAR. AND THE COLUMNS THAT JUST ON
SHOW YOU WHAT’S, ONE OF THE POSSIBILITY SCENARIOS THE
HALTON IS CONSIDERING FOR ALLOCATION
OF THE GROWTH AMONG THE FOUR. WE HAVE EMBARKED ON AN
AMBITIOUS CONSULTATION HOAR AT THE COUNCIL OF OAKVILLE
— HERE AT THE COUNCIL OF OAKVILLE WITH RESIDENTS
ASSOCIATION AND PEOPLE INTERESTED IN THIS TOPIC.
BEGINNING A RIGHT OF WAY WAY.
PLEASE WATCH OUR WEBSITE AND NEWSPAPERS LIKE THE OAKVILLE
BEAVER AND OAKVILLE NEWS.ORG AND RESIDENT ASSOCIATIONS, IF YOU
LIVE IN A RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION. AND MANY PEOPLE UNTIL OAKVILLE
DO. THEREANOTHER TREND THAT WE’RE
PROUD OF, WE HAVE BEEN ONE IN
SAFETY FOR 13 YEARS TO OTHER LARGE POLICE SERVICES.
AND WE’RE THE TOP TOWN FOR LIVE LIVEABILITY.
WE GOT THERE FROM 30th PLACE ONLY 13 YEARS AGO
AND I ATTRIBUTE THIS TO THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND SOCIAL
WE FROM SO MANY PLACE OF WORSHIP, CIVIL SOCIETY
ORGANIZATIONS AND RESIDENTSS. PAST WEEK, WEEK,
I ATTEND EVENTS WHERE THAT IS BROUGHT TO.
JUST THIS WEEK I EXPERIENCED FOUR BITS THAT
REALLY MAKE THIS CONCRETE FOR ME ME.
, I THE STAR AWARDS GALA THAT JAMES MONTAGUE
HOSTS. BUT IT IS A MASSIVE PIECE OF
WORK THAT THE FAMILIES OF THE SPECIAL YOUNG AND OLD PEOPLE
THAT LIVE AMONG US THE FAMILIES PUT THE INTO THIS.
JAMES GETS THE. AND HEIES IN IT.
DOES A WONDERFUL OF IT. THE POINT IS THE COMMUNITY
AS A WHOLE COMES TOGETHER TO DO THIS THING. WORK INCREDIBLY HARD
AT IT. THEN LAST, LEARNED THAT
PARMAR SHARMA, HERE TODAY TODAY, HAS BEEN BY A
NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR HER ROLE IN PHILANTHROPY.
HER WORK IN THAT FIELD HAS RAISED TONS OF MONEY FOR OUR
HOSPITAL. AND SHE HAS FROM THE
INTENSE ENGAGEMENT COMMUNITY SHE WORKS WITH
ONCE, A PERSON ON THE HEADLINE, BUT THERE’S A
BIG ORGANIZATION OF RESIDENTS SUPPORTING.
-P-A-V-A-N PARMAR. YESTERDAY I ATTENDED A CONCERT

>>Mayor Burton: WAS IED WHEN SHOE LACES SHOWED UP
NOW WITH, I HOPE OF YOU IN THE AUDIENCE WILL BEED TO ALSO COME.
WE HADN’T HAD COUNCILLOR LISHCHYNA THERE AS OUR
PHOTOGRAPHER, I DON’T KNOW WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED ON THE
SOCIAL MEDIA SIDE. THANK YOU, COUNCILLOR LISHCHYNA.
, THE PROVINCIAL CHANGES THAT ARE AFFECTING US ARE THIS
REGIONAL GOVERNMENT REVIEW, BUT THAT’S NOT ALL.
THE HOMES AND MORE CHOICE ACT.
A OF THE THINGS THAT IT’S, CREATED A PAY FOR
EVENED SPECIE ENDANGERED SPECIES.
GREATLY OUR ABILITY TO ACQUIRE PARK LAND FROM
DEVELOPERS. IT HAS PUT JEOPARDY THE
STABLE NEIGHBOURHOODS PLANNING RULES THAT WE HAVE BEEN RELYING
ON TO KEEP UNWANTED INTENSIFICATION OUT OF YOUR
NEIGHBOURHOOD. AND IT HAS CUT OUR HERITAGE
PROTECTION POWERS. THE PUBLIC PROCESS HAS BEEN
GREATLY. WHEN YOU SEE THAT LOOKS
LIKE, I THINK YOU’LL AGREE IT’S ALL BUT ELIMINATED.
ZONING AND PLANS ARE SUBJECT TO APPEAL.
AND THE REASON THAT’S A GREAT TRAGEDY, NOT A TRAVESTY, IS
THEY DON’T GO INTO EFFECT THE PROVINCE APPROVES.
IF THEY’RE APPEAL, WE HAVE TO PAY TO THEM.
IT SEEMS BEFORE BILL 108 WE HAD A BRIEF PERIOD OF A YEAR
YEAR-AND-A-HALF WHERE THE PROVINCE AGREED WITH US THAT
SINCE THEY APPROVED IT, IT WASN’T TO ASK THE
TO DEFEND WHAT THE PROVINCE ORDERED. THERE WAS A TWO YEAR
HOLIDAY ON APPEALS FOR THOSE. COST OF GROWTH IS SHIFTING
BECAUSE SOFT SERVICES ARE BEING TAKEN OFF OF
DEVELOPMENTS., A ROAD WITH CONCRETE AND
ASPHALT IS A HARD. A REC WITH CONCRETE AND
STEEL FOR SOME REASON IS A SOFT. THAT’S THE IT.
AND THOSE SOFT SERVICES ARE GOING TO BE BY A NEW
COMMUNITY BENEFIT CHARGE. AND THE COMMUNITY BENEFIT CHARGE
IS GOING TO BE CALCULATED ON A FORMULA THAT WILL GET THIS,
ACCORDING TO THE MINISTER WHEN HE’S TALKING TO THE DEVELOPERS,
GOING TO CREATE SAVINGS FOR THEM
HARD SERVICE. WHEN HE’S TALKING TO US MAYBE,
KEEP US WHOLE. NOT GOING TO LOSE ANY
MONEY. THIS COMES, IT’S. I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING HOW
THAT. THEN THERE ARE PROVINCIAL
BUDGET THROUGH OUR PROPERTY TAX FOR AMBULANCE,
FOR PUBLIC HEALTH AND FOR CHILD. AND I’M SAYING THAT’S ALL
THERE WILL BE. THAT’S ALL ABOUT NOW.
SO, TALK ABOUT LAND USE, THIS GETS US
TO GLEN ABBEY. THE REDUCTION OF LOCAL MUNICIPAL
POWERS OVER LAND USE HAS SORT OF REVERSED A BIT OF PROGRESS THAT
ENJOYED IN THE TIME PERIODED AROUND 2018.
HAPPENED IS THIS BILL 108 NOWS THE LOCAL PLANNING
APPEAL TRIBUNAL TO MAKE ANY LAND USE PLANNING THE
MUNICIPALITY OR APPROVAL AUTHORITY COULD HAVE.
AND WHERE WE WERE BEFORE WAS WE HAD GONE FROM ESSENTIALLY THAT
WHICH CAN ALSO BE DESCRIBED AS DIFFERENCE TO THE.
THE TEST USED TO BE ON APPEAL IS THE PROPOSAL CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE
LAWS? UNDER BILL 139 WHICH HAS
BEEN ERASEED BY BILL 108. IT’S LOT OF NUMBERS.
WE HAD THESE TWO ACT. 139 THE TEST BECAME THE OF
COUNCIL CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE LAWS.
NOW WE GO BACK TO IS THE PROPOSAL CLOSE.
– DEFERENCE. WE CALL THAT.
THERE’S AN AGE TO. A TOWARDS COUNCIL OLD REGIME AND
EDGE THE APPLICANT IN THE NEW.
THEY SAID THAT ONE OF THE REASONS DOING THIS TO
QUOTE, THEY’RETING THE POLITICS OUT OF LAND USE
PLANNING. BUT WHEN YOU AT IT, THEY’RE
ALSO REMOVING PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AND HEARINGS AND
APPEAL RATES RIGHTS. SUGGEST TO YOU THAT YOU
HEAR THEM SAY THEY’RETING THE OUT OF LAND USE
PLANNING, THEY’RE GETTING THE PUBLIC LAND
USE PLANNING APPROVALS. IN FACT I WOULD GO SO FAR AS TO
SAY THE NEW REGIME TELLS THE PUBLIC TO GO TO THE HEAD OF THE
QUEUE THE ZONING BY-LAW IS FIRST BY THE TOWN AND YOUR INPUT
WITH THE TOWN. THE TOWN A NEW
OFFICIAL PLAN OR MAKES AN AMENDMENT TO AN ADDITIONAL PLAN,
PUT YOUR INPUT THEN. ON, LITERALLY NOT
WELCOME. WATCH, BUT THAT’S ABOUT
IT. , ANOTHER ASPECT OF THIS IS
THAT THE GLEN ABBEY CASE HAVE BEEN MOVED FROM DEFERENCE TO
COUNCIL TO DEFERENCE TO THE APPLICANT.
THE OAKVILLE M.P.P.s VOTED FOR THIS.
THEM. AND THOSE SAME M.P.P.s SAID
THEY WOULD SAVE GLEN ABBEY, REMEMBER?
AND COUNCIL STILL SUPPORTS SAVE GLEN ABBEY.
COUNCIL IS STILL MAINTAINING ITS CASES IN THE COURT OF APPEAL
AND AT THE LOCAL PLANNING APPEAL .
SO WE ARE SEEING IT. AND WONDER IF OURs HAVE A PLAN.
NOW, ALSO WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS BIG SHIFT FROM SALES AND
INCOME TAXES TO THE PROPERTY TAX TAX.
I TEND TO THE PROPERTY TAX IS FULL AND OVERBURDENED.
SOME PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY DON’T WITH .
SO THESE ARE COSTS BEING SHIFTED TO THE MUNICIPAL
PROPERTY TAX. AMBULANCES, CHILD CARE AND
PUBLIC HEALTH. AFTER THE WALK FOR YEAR,
AFTER THE WALK BACK OF MAKING THE CHANGES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE
2019 BUDGET YEAR. THIS BIG SHIFT I THINK HAS
ARISEN BECAUSE OF A DIFFICULTY THAT THE GOVERNMENT RAN INTO
TRYING TO MAKE THIS COME. ONBC OTTAWA MORNING DURING THE
ELECTION LAST YEAR, HOST ASKED MR. FORD IF HE WOULD
CUT PUBLIC SERVICE JOBS., NOT, HE REPLYIED.
IT’S FUNNY, ROBIN, I HAVE TO YOU THIS QUESTION.
DO YOU THINK THERE’S NOT CENTS ON THE OF SAVINGS
IN THE GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIO? THEN SUGGESTED PEOPLE
AT HIS EVENTS BROKE OUT AT THE
PROSPECT OF FINDING FOUR CENTS. HE SAID NOT
PERSON ON THIS PLANET THAT CAN TELL ME THERE ISN’T FOUR CENTS
SAVINGS ON BLOATED BUREAUCRACY THAT WE CAN’T FIND IN THE
GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIO AND WATCH ME DO IT, HE SAID.
I SUMMARIZE THAT HE PROMISED TO FIX ONTARIO’S FINANCE BY
FINDING 4% EFFICIENT. HE SAID IT WOULD EASEY WITH NO
OR LOSSES. HAVE VOTED FOR THAT. AND THIS IS WHAT HAVE
LOOKED. YOU HAVE 100% OF THE PROVINCE’S.
BLUE WOULD BE THE OF FINDING 4% .
FOR 96% OF THE PREVIOUS COST OF THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT, YOU
WOULD GET THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT GOVERNMENT.
BUT HE WOUND UP RAISING SPENDING BY 20 BILLION.
WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU ZOOM.
SO INSTEAD OF THE BLUE BEING CUT CUT, THE RED WAS ADDED.
NOW, AT THE SAME TIME HE WALKED BACK THE 2019 CUTS, HE ASKED OF
HALTON AND OAKVILLE TO CUT TOTAL SPENDING FOR 2020 BY 4
4% THAT WALK BACK OF THE MID YEAR CUTS AND TRANSFERS TO
CITIES. I GUESS IN ORDER TO FIT THOSE
DOWNLOADS INTO OUR TAX LEVY. AND LOOK LIKE THAT.
BLUE BAND WOULD BE 4% OF 100%.
TOTAL SPENDING IS 3 300 MILLION.
DISCRETIONARY SPENDING IS ONLY ABOUT 100 MILLION.
4% OF THE TOTAL IS $12 MILLION. THAT’S 12% OF DISCRETIONARY,
WHICH IS YOUR PROGRAM SPENDING.
SAME LOGIC APPLIES TO HALTON HALTON.
THERE’S A BIT A INFO GRAPHIC TO SHOW YOU THAT WE HAVE ONLY AT
THE TOP LAYER, WE HAVE CERTAIN BASE THINGS THAT ARE ALREADY AS
EFFICIENT AS THEY CAN IN ORDER TO DELIVER YOU WHAT YOU
WANT. THAT’S OUR STAFF AND OUR CAPITAL
SPENDING. AND SO THERE’S WHERE OPERATIONS
COMES IN. THAT RED BAR IS WHAT $12 MILLION
LOOKS LIKE AGAINST THAT 1 100 MILLION.
SO THE’S CUT REQUEST EQUALS 12 MILLION AT THE LOCAL
OAKVILLE. HALTON TOTAL SPENDING
INCLUDING WATER IS 1.5 BILLION.4 % OF THAT WOULD BE 60 MILLION
OUT OF THE SPENDING OF. LEAVING OUT, 4% CUT
WOULD BE A TO MILLION DOLLAR CUT AT THE HALTON LEVEL OUT OF 450,
460, HIGH 400 MILLION SPENDING. -20000000.
THE SAME DIVISION BETWEEN CAPITAL STAFF AND.
FOUND GROUNDHOG DAY FOR CITIES. THIS IN THE 1990 CIRQUE
DU SOLEIL. 1990s. YEAR, THE MUNICIPAL
AFFAIRS MINISTER SAID I’M NOT ONE FOR
LONG CONSULT STUFF. I TO MAKE A FEW PHONE
AND MAKE A. SAW EARLIER TONIGHT THE TOWN
OF OAKVILLE COUNCIL DOESN’T REALLY OPERATE THAT WILL.
WE LIKE TO CONSULT. AND OF CONSULTING
WITH OUR RESIDENTS, DECISIONS GET IMPROVED.
I THINK THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED EARLIER TONIGHT.
AND WITH BILL 108 IN 30 DAYS, THEY THROUGH
THE LEGISLATURE A TO CUT LOCAL AUTHORITY LAND USE AND CUT
S REQUIREMENTS FOR PARK LAND FROM DEVELOPERS.
AND DO YOU REMEMBER BILL 66, THE ONE THAT WAS GOING TO UP
THE GREEN BELT? THE TIMEFRAME FOR THAT ONE WAS A
LITTLE BIT MORE THAN TWO MONTHS. A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN TWO
MONTHS WAS ENOUGH FOR THE OF TO ORGANIZE GENETICS AGAINST
IT. OUTCRY ENSUEED. WALKED BACK BILL
66 THAT WAS GOING TO UP THE GREEN
BELT. SO SUBMIT TO YOU THAT
BILL 108 THEY SHORTENED THE
PROCESS. NOBODY HAD TIME – PEOPLE WERE
STILL CALLING EACH. IT? .
SO, AFTER THEY PASSED IT, THEY SAID WE’RE TO WITH
YOU FROM NOW ON AND ON THE REGULATIONS.
REGULATIONS MAKE THE STATUTE WORK.
THE YOU CARRY OUT THE STATED INTENT OF THE STATUTE
STATUTE. SO THANKS A LOT.
BUT 60 DAYS WASN’T ENOUGH THAT REALLY.
WE DID SUBMIT OUR BUT THEY EXPECT LISTEN.
SO I’M WONDERING IF AT THIS POINT YOU FEEL LIKE THIS COULD
BE THE DON’T TELL, DON’T LISTEN GOVERNMENT?
AND GO BACK TO THE REVIEW. PROFESSOR RICHARDLE
SAID MANY OF IN THE ACADEMIC WORLD DEBUNKED AMALGAMATIONS
SAVING MONEY FOR DECADES. MANY HAVE EXPLAINED WHY AMAL GA
AMALGAMATIONS DON’T SAVE MONEY. NOW, ALL CAME FROM BILL 5,
BILL 5 WAS LAST. FIRST PART WAS TO DEAL
WITH THE TORONTO CITY COUNCIL AND CUT IT IN HALF IN THE OF THE
MUNICIPAL ELECTION ELECTION.
DONE THE OF APPEAL UPHELD ON
A OF 3-2. WE HAVE TO MOVE, I THINK
ALTHOUGH WHO. I SUPPOSE WHEN COURT OF
APPEAL IS 3-2. IS TEMPTED TO GO TO THE SUPREME COURT.
LET’S STEP 2. 2, OTHER PART OF BILL 5
CONCERNS SET UP THE REGIONAL GOVERNANCE.
AND TO THAT WAS ANNOUNCED IN JANUARY.
AND TWO GENTLEMEN WERE HIRE TO BE ADVISORS.
JOB WAS TO GO OUT CONSULT.
AND FIRST THEY DID THEY ANNOUNCED IN JANUARY THERE
WASN’T ENOUGH TO GET IT ALL DONE BY JUNE.
AND HAVE THE EMPIRE ENTIRE REGIME THE MINISTRY LAID OUT ON
THEIR WEBSITE. FIRST LAID OUT
COME AND INTERVIEW THE OF THE 82 MUNICIPALITIES UNDER THE
GUN. THEN THEY WOULD COME BACK
AND THEY WOULD INTERVIEW THES. THEY ANNOUNCED IN JANUARY THAT
THEY WEREN’T GOING TO BE ABLE TO THAT.
TING THE COMEBACK AND TALK TO THE COUNCILS.
SO THERE WAS A TRUNCATEED CONSULT
CONSULTATION. RESPONSE TO PROTESTS,
THEY EXTENDED IT AND SO THEY STARTED, THE VERY FIRST HEADS OF
COUNCIL OR MAYORS THEY INTERVIEWED WERE ON FEBRUARY 4
FEBRUARY 4th RIGHT HERE HALTON.
ED CHAIR CARR AND THE FOUR MAYORS OF HALTON’S
LOCAL. THEN THEY CAME IN JUNE
FOR THE VERY LASTATION. AND THAT WAS NOT A CONSULTS.
INSTEAD IT WAS A LET THE PUBLIC TELL THEM WHAT THEY THOUGHT.
YOU HAD LOVE OAKVILLE.ORG. ORGANIZATION CREATED BY OUR
RESIDENTS ASSOCIATIONS TO PUT IN WHAT THEIR OPINION.
WE HAD AND WE HAD ONE BRAVE, COUNCILLOR ADAMS WHO
SHOWED UP TO DELEGATE TO THEM. AND FOR ME, COUNCILLOR ADAMS,
YOU MAY NOT HAVE FIND THIS TO BE THE STAND OUT.
THOUGHT THE STAND OUT MOMENT WAS WHEN THEY SAID RATHERLY,
HAPPILY, WE FOUND A STUDY THAT SHOWS AMALGAMATIONS
WORK. AND WE GOT ONE AGAINST ALL
THE. AND NOT SO HELPFUL AS
TO IDENTIFY IT SO ANYBODY COULD REVIEW IT AND CRITIQUE.
TAKES ME TO MY INTERVIEW WITH THEM ON FEBRUARY 4th.
THEY HAD GIVEN US SOME PREPARED QUESTIONS.
WROTE DOWN MY. IN PAPER AND GAVE IT TO THEM AT THE
. ALSO HANDED A STUDY BY THE FRAYS
FRAYSER INSTITUTE DEBUNKING AMALGAMATIONS.
THE FRAYS INSTITUTE, MANY OF YOU WILL BE SURPRISED TO
IS A RENOWNED CONSERVATIVE GROUP.
AND YOU AWARE FROM TIME TO TIME I HAVE BEEN ACCUSEED OF
BEINGLY CONFUSED,, NOT IDENTIFIED WITH
CONSERVATIVES. AND MR. FINN I HANDED HIM
THE FRAYSER INSTITUTE STUDY,O FRASER INSTITUTE SAID TO ME THIS
IS PRETTY RICH. YOU ALL PEOPLE GIVING A
REPORT BY THE FRASER INSTITUTE. I SAID I’M CONSIDERING THE
AUDIENCE. THEY’RE CONSERVATIVE.
MAYBE YOU’LL TO THEM. WHAT HAPPENED. FOUND A.
THEY HAVE BEEN, MR. FINN AND MR. MR. CEILING IN THE WITNESS
PROTECTION PROGRAM EVER.>>Mayor Burton: NOW, LET’S TALK
ABOUT OUTRIGHT AMALGAMATION IN CASE YOU DON’T HAVE LET’S SEE
HERE’S MY BRIEF OUTRIGHT AMALGAMATION.
I BELIEVE THAT THAT WOULD CONSTITUTE LOSS OF LOCAL.
LOCAL IDENTITY IS A PART OF COMMUNITY ENGAGE
ENGAGEMENT I BELIEVE ENGAGEMENT IS THE AND SOLE SOUL AND
BACK-BONE AND BRAIN OF COMMUNITY HEALTH.
IT’S THE REASON WHY OAKVILLE IS OAKVILLE.
LOSE THAT AND YOU TURN OAKVILLE INTO JUST ANOTHER
PLACE. THAT’S MY VIEW ON THAT.
I BELIEVE THE OAKVILLE BRAND A CERTAIN VALUE REFLECTED IN
YOUR PROPERTY. I WAS ON THE ROAD COMING BACK
FROM A CONFERENCE WITH A MAYOR AND A CHIEF OF STAFF OF ANOTHER
WHO GOING TO TRY TO NOT NAME.
AND MY CHIEF STAFF AND I WERE IN THE. OTHER GENTLEMAN SAID
ROB, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF OAKVILLE AND BURLINGTON MERGED
AND CALLED OAKVILLE? DO YOU THINK BURLINGTON WOULD GO
UP SPH BURLINGTON HOUSES WOULD GO UP 10%?
–OWE I SAID, NO, IT WOULD BE 20 %.
I CONFESS I’M A REAL ESTATE APPRAISER.
I WAS REALLY TRYING TO CRACK WISE.
THE ANECDOTE PROVES THE. WHAT HAPPENS OUTRATING
AMALGAMATION. YOU HAVE STANDARDIZE.
THE TWO ADVISORSED WITH ME, STRENUOUSLY I THINK WORD
HOW IMPORTANT IT WOULD TO REGIONALIZE FIRE AND.
I SAID, OK. IF YOU THAT, FIRE AND TRANSIT
WILL BE MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE EXPENSE.
AND THAT WILL RAISE TAXES. I THOUGHT YOU WERE CONSERVATIVES
CONSERVATIVES. HOW COULD IT POSSIBLY
RAISE TAXES? INSTEAD OF FOUR CHIEF, YOU
ONLY HAVE. BUT THREE NEW DEPUTY.
HOW IT EVERY TIME YOU HAVE AMALGAMATION IN
THE. NO SAVINGS THERE.
AND IF THERE WERE, IT’S MINUSCULE COMPARED TO STANDARD
STANDARDIZING SERVICE. 220 FIREFIGHTERS OR SO.
MORE, OF FIREFIGHTERS ARE PROFESSIONALS.
MORE STATION. WE HAVE MORE TRUCKS
A FIRE SAFETY – A FIRE CAMPUS WHERE WE OUR
FIREFIGHTERS HIGHEST DEGREE.
OUR IN HALTON ALL HAVE TO ONE DEGREE OR ANOTHER
PARTLY VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT DEPARTMENTS
THE RESULT IS WE HAVE A MUCH HIGHER STANDARD OF FIRE
PROTECTION AND LOWER FIRE INSURANCE AND GOOD FOR
HOMES AND BUSINESSES. SO, AND ON TRANSIT, I SAID,,
OAKVILLE HAS AND GRID SYSTEM.
CANNOT NO ONLY GO IN AND OUT OF THE G.O. STATION BUT BACK AND
FORTH ACROSS AND, NORTH AND SOUTH IN.
AND BURLINGTON, SPEAKING ROUND NUMBERS, THEY HAVE 50
BUSES AND THEY’RE JUST A RADIAL SYSTEM GOING THEIR
G. OFPL STATION. HILTON, TWO.
LAST TIME I LOOKED EIGHT BUSES. HALTON HILLS THEY DON’T EVEN IN.
IF YOU’RE GOING TO EXTEND, REGIONALIZE TRANSIT, ARE YOU
GOING TO TAKE AWAY FROM OAKVILLE?
ARE YOU GOING TO RAISE EVERYBODY UP TO OAKVILLE’S STANDARD?
, OH, THEY DIDN’T THIS.
OH, BE A. THE SERVICE
THE IN EACH AREA. AND AREA RATE.
AREA RATE IS A SPECIAL TERM THAT MEANS YOU PAY A DIFFERENT TAX
DEPENDING ON YOU LIVE. SO YOU WOULD HAVE A TRANSIT
AND BE THIS MUCH IF YOU DON’T HAVE VERY MUCH SERVICE.
IT WOULD BE MORE IF IN OAKVILLE.
AND SO ON. WHICH I REPLYIED, WHAT WOULD THE
OF REGIONIZATION? ALL RIGHT. YOU SEE IT THAT WAY.
MAYBE YOU. – REGIONALIZATION.
THE OTHER POSSIBILITY THAT THEY ALSO, MAYBE WE’LL LEAVE THE
ORGANIZATION ALONE BUT WE’LL MOVE THOSE SERVICES UP.
AND THAT WOULD – THAT BRINGS YOU AS I SAID SAME PLACE.
OTHER MYSTERY IS THERE’S A
GENTLEMAN WHO HAS A PAPER FOR THE C.D. HOWEE
INSTITUTE SRAOBGT ADVOCATEING AND
WASTEWATER, IT WOULD NO LONGER BE A PUBLIC UTILITY OPERATED BY
GOVERNMENT. ALLOW PRESUMEABLY
PRIVATE ENTITY TO TAKE THEM OVER AND BENEFIT TO
WOULD BE THAT UTILITIES MIGHT ISSUE DEBENTS OR OTHER
FORMS OF DEBT TO BUILD NEW WATER, WHICH IS
INTENSIVE. COLLECT FROM THE
RATES PAID BY THE FUTURE AND EXIST GOES
RESIDENTS. EXISTING RESIDENTS.
WRONG WITH THAT, IT WOULD COST MORE TO HAVE. A PROFIT THAT
IN IT NOW HAVE TO BE.
MY VIEW IS THE UTILITY THIN TAKING THE RISK THAT
WILL THE GROWTH DOESN’T COME. IF YOU SPEND A
BILLION-AND-A-HALF DOLLARS ON NEW WATER CAPACITY, ANTICIPATING
GROWTH AND IT DOESN’T SHOW UP, YOU THE TAXPAYER ARE
HOLDING THE BAG. SO I CAN SEE THE CLEAR
ADVANTAGE TOTING THE EXPENSIVE PART OF GROWTH OFF OF
THE COSTS THAT ARE TO THE DEVELOPERS.
BUT I CAN’T THE TO US. SO THAT’S, I HOPE, AN ADEQUATE
EXPLANATION OF THE MAJOR THINGS WRONG WITH.
JUST MORE ON REGIONAL REVIEW.
EVERYBODY WILL – THIS WILL BE. SLIDE SHOW.
THESE SLIDES AND I RECOMMEND TO YOU THIS COMING QUOTE THE.
IN APRIL A CHAMBER OF EVENT, PREMIER DOUG
FORD WAS ASKED ABOUT THE REGIONAL REVIEW.
PREMIER FORD PROMPTLY RESPONDED THIS WAY.
REALLY BELIEVE AND IT GOES BACK MY ROOTS OF BEING A, WE
HAVE TO EMPOWER THE CITIES AND TOWNS THEMSELVES.
CAN WORSE, HE SAID, THAN THE PROVINCE, YOU KNOW, DICTATE
DICTATING THIS, THAT AND THE OTHER THING.
THAT’S WHY WE ALWAYS SAY OPT IN OR OPT OUT.
WHAT FOCUSING ON MORE.
THE COMMUNITIES DECIDE. THAT BE NICE?
SO, MY COMMENT FOLLOWS. THAT IS IF WE WANT ONTARIO’S
NEW GOVERNMENT FOR THE PEOPLE WHAT WE THE PEOPLE, IT’S
UP TO US TO LET KNOW. PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT TRACKS
CORRESPONDENCE ON ISSUES, INCLUDING AMALGAMATION.
THE MORE E-MAILS THEY RECEIVE FROM THE OF OAKVILLE THE INFORM
ED THIS GOVERNMENT THE PEOPLE WILL BE.
AND HERE I HAVE TO SAY, WE ARE SO RICH IN COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
WE HAVE SO MANY ACTIVE RESIDENTS ASSOCIATIONS MANY OF I SEE
LEADERS HERE. TOGETHER, THEY THIS WE
LOVE OAKVILLE.ORG GROUP. THEY HAVE ALL CONTRIBUTED
MONEY TO IT IN ORDER TO AFFORD THE LAWN YOU HAVE SEEN ALL
OVER TOWN. WHAT THEY HAVE ACHIEVEED
TO. MORE THAN 3400 E-MAILS TO THE,
COPY TO ME SO I CAN KEEP COUNT PROTEST THE IDEA
OF AMALGAMATION. HATS TO OAKVILLE AND
JUST SAY THAT HISTORY OF OAKVILLE THERE’S NEVER BEEN 34
OR E-MAILS ABOUT ANYTHING., 300 IS THE HIGH WATER
MARK BEFORE. SO OAKVILLE IS FULLY ENGAGEED ON
THIS ISSUE. I WILL JUST MENTION TO ANY WHO
ARE LISTENING OR WATCHING AND HAVEN’T PARTICIPATED IN THE WE
LOVE OAKVILLE EMAIL CAMPAIGN, THERE’S ABOUT, I WOULD SAY 65,S,
65, 68,000 HOUSEHOLDS, LIKE
IN OAKVILLE, ANY RECKONING MEANS THAT ACHIEVING 34 IT’S AN EARTH
SHATTERING AMOUNT, ROOM GROW NUMBER. BE
GREAT IF EVERYBODY GO TO WELOVE OAKVILLE.ORG
AND THE OPPORTUNITIES. THE REGIONAL REVIEW?
THE LEGISLATURE WAS SUSPENDED UNTIL OCTOBER 28th.
OFFICIAL THE TARGET WAS EARLY.
THIS YEAR THEYED TO EARLY FALL.
NOW SAYING IN AUGUST AT THE ASSOCIATION OF OF ONTARIO

THE MINISTER US IN A HE GAVE TO THE MORE THAN
2,000 MAYORS AND COUNCILLORS THATED THERE TO HEAR
HIM HE SAID HE’S MADE NO DECISIONS.
BUT NOTE THIS. CHOSE TO TWO ADVISORS WHO ARE
WELL KNOWN FOR FAVOURING AMALGAMATIONS.
HE DID NOT CHOOSE ONE FOR VANILLA AND FOR STRAWBERRY.
CHOSE TWO FOR STRAWBERRY, IF I CAN STRAWBERRY
AMALGAMATION. THAT’S NOTLY WHAT I
WOULD CALL A AT BOTH SIDES OF THE QUESTION SET UP.
AND WHEN HE WAS SPEAKING TO US AT THE CONFERENCE IN AUGUST AT A
AMO, HE SAID THESE WORDS ABOUT HOW THERE’S NO DECISION
MADE HE HASN’T THE REPORT
IT’S NOT GOING TO BEED UNTIL LATER THE END
YEAR, SLIDE BEHIND HIM HIS GOAL WAS AS I HERE,
STRENGTH REGIONAL GOVERNMENT., WHATEVER MEANS,
TO LEAVE TO YOU TO INTERPRET, BUT ANYWAY. ARE THE BITS I HAVE.
DULY REPORTED THEM TO YOU. AND URGE YOU TO CONSIDER WHAT

PROJECTS UNDERWAY AT OAKVILLE HYDRO.
SPEERS ROAD POLE RELOCATION BETWEEN THIRD LINE AND FOUR
LINE IS SUBSTANTIALLY COMPLETE. THE RELOCATIONS WILL ALLOW THE
TOWN TO CARRY ON ROAD WIDEENING WORK.
NEXT THE BRONTE TS FEED FEEDER EGRESS PROJECT IN
CONJUNCTION WITH HYDRO ONE’S MAJOR TRANSFORMER REPLACEMENT,
OAKVILLE HYDRO IS UPGRADING THE CONNECTIONS TO THE HYDRO ONE
STATION. MAY HAVE NOTICEED DISRUPTION,
AS WELL, OUTSIDE ON TRAFALGAR ROAD
ROAD WIDEENING PROJECT IS APPROXIMATELY 60%., OUR OF THE
PROJECT IS SCHEDULE TO UP BY THE END OF THE YEAR

THE CROSS SUB ON CROSS AVENUE JUST ADJACENT TO THE
OAKVILLE G.O. TRAIN. THE SHERIDAN SUB STATION AT
UPPER MIDDLE AND JOSHUA JOSHUA’S CREEK.
NEW EQUIPMENT WILL PROVIDE RELIABLE FOR
TO COME. SO DURING THE PAST, WE
WITNESSED THE BRUTAL IMPACT OF HURRICANE DORIAN.
A RECENT STUDY FOUND SEVERE WEATHER CAUSED 80% OF POWER
OUTAGES FROM 2003 TO 2012. EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THAT
ENERGY SUPPLY CHAIN PARTICULARLY POWER AND
DISTRIBUTION IS VULNERABLE TO CLIMATE CHANGE AND DISASTER
EVENTS. WE CAN’T CONTROL THE
WEATHER, OAKVILLE HYDRO IS INTEGRATEING CLIMATE CHANGE INTO
IT’S LONG TERM CAPITAL PLANNING, ASSET MANAGEMENT, AND BUDGETING.
ALSO TO NOTE OAKVILLE HYDRO CONTINUES TO BEAT
INDUSTRY AVERAGE FOR FREQUENCY, AND DURATION OFS.
THAT IS WE’RE BETTER THAN THE AVERAGES.
AMENDMENTS TO THE ONTARIO ENERGY BOARD ACT WILL ALTER THE
STRUCTURE AND OPERATIONS. THE AND APPOINTMENT OF
A BOARD OF DIRECTORS, A C.E.O., LASTLY, NEWERS.
THE INDEPENDENT ELECTRICITY SYSTEM OPERATORS R OPERATOR OR

LASTLY,ED ENERGY RESOURCES OR DEs Rs THEY’RE
OFTEN CALLED ARE SMALL GENERATION FACILITIES THAT ARE
OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES.
DECENTRALIZE THE ELECTRICITY SYSTEM AND CHANGE
TRADITIONAL OPERATING DYNAMIC. LIKELY HAVE NOTICEED
ELECTRIC VEHICLES CONTINUE TO GAIN MARKET.
AVERAGE INCREASING MORE THAN 65% OVER
THE LAST FIVE YEARS. THERE ARE 62V IN THE
GTA ALONE. MARKET INDUSTRY COSTS ARE HIGHER
TODAY WITHOUT THE GOVERNMENT INCENTIVE.
SO COLLABORATION, PARTNERSHIPS AND SUPPORT
ESSENTIAL TO BUILD PUBLIC DENSITY, WHICH WILL AID
IN OVERCOMING WHAT WE CALL RANGE ANXIETY
AS PART OF OAKVILLE HYDRO’S EV, WE’RE CURRENTLY
SUPPORTING NATIONAL AND PROVINCIAL ORGANIZATIONS THAT
PROMOTE THE ADOPTION OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES, THE NONPROFIT
ORGANIZATION PLUG DRIVE. CURRENTLY, WE’RE COLLABORATING
WITH TOWN OF FOR A PUBLICV CHARGING AND

IF SO, WHY ARE WE THIS?>>, THIS – GRID SMART CITY,
THERE ARE OTHER CO-OPERATETIVES, THERE’S ONE CALLED CHECK.
AND SO, BUT GRID SMART WAS STARTED RIGHT IN HALTON.
IS IT STARTED A GROUP OF LDCs THAT HAD A SIMILAR
VALUE SET AND. THAT WAS TO FIND EFFICIENTCYIES
THROUGH COLLABORATION AND SHARING, BUT MAINTAIN OUR
OWNERSHIP AND THAT.
SO THE GROUP HAS GROWN TO 14. BUT THE ORIGINAL PURPOSE WAS
REALLY TO FIND THOSECY EFFICIENCIES.
IT STARTED RIGHT IN HALTON.>>Councillor: THANK YOU VERY
MUCH.>>Mayor Burton: COUNCILLOR

THE GRID IN A SAFE AND EFFICIENT.
WE HAVEN’T REALLY STARTED TO PUT ANY KIND OF DERs OR
INTEREST OUR SYSTEM WE DO HAVE ONE VERY INNOVATEIVE
PROJECT MOBILE ENERGY STORAGE. SO BE PUTTING BATSRY BATTERY
STORAGE ON TRAILER. THAT WILL BE OUR CASE AND
WE’LL BE THAT AROUND OUR GRID AREAS OF EITHER POOR
QUALITY OR RELIABILITY TO SEE IF WE CAN’T BOOST GRID IN
CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES. BUT IF WE HAVE A CUSTOMER
THAT OUT FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, WE MAY BE ABLE TO USE
THAT BATTERY STORAGE TO WITH THAT.

VEHICLES IN OUR GRID.HAS THERE BEEN ANY
TO THAT RIGHT NOW HOW YOU INTEND TO THAT GOING
FORWARD? WITH ONLY 750 VEHICLES RIGHT
NOW, I SAW FROM THE NOTE, OBVIOUSLY IT’S PROBABLY TOO A
LOAD. AS TIME ON, THAT WILL
INCREASE. THE ON OUR GRID IS
SUBSTANTIAL FOR VEHICLES.
DO WE HAVE A PLAN FOR HOW WE’RE TO ACCOMMODATE THAT
>>YES. AN EV STRATEGY. WITHIN THAT, WE TALK ABOUT HOW
WE’RE TO SUPPORT AND THE PROLIFERATION OF EV AND
CHARGING STATIONS. WHEN IT COMES SPECIFICALLY TO
THE GRID, POINT, OF THE STUDIES THAT DONE
HAVEN’T TO ANY WEAKNESS IN OUR GRID SYSTEM.
WE BELIEVE WE HAVE A RESILIENT GRID.
AND NOT ONLY THAT, WE HAVE SOME OF THE HIGH LEVELS OF
AUTOMATION IN THE ENTIRE. I THINK THAT WILL REALLY DO
US WELL TO HELP BRING ON LOTS OF E.

BUT WE DON’T BELIEVE BE ANY ISSUES
>>Councillor: THANK YOU.>>Mayor Burton: MAYBE YOU COULD
AMPLIFY YOU MEAN BY AUTOMATION OUT OF OUR SYSTEM,
BECAUSE, AND IF YOU DON’T USE ACRONYMS IT WILL BE EVEN BETTER.
WHEN PEOPLE LEARN HOW CREATES A FAIL SAFE, THERE WILL BE
IMPRESSED.>>THANK YOU.
OUR SYSTEM IN OAKVILLE, WE HAVE OVER 217
AUTOMATED SWITCHES. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? ABLE TO
ACTUALLY DIVERT POWER WITHOUT ACTUALLY
OUT A CREW TO THE POLES TO SWITCH. DO THAT FROM OUR
ROOM AT 217 DIFFERENT POINTS. VERY UNCOMMON IN THE.
BUT IT ALLOWS US A GREAT DEAL OF FLEXIBILITY AND RESILIENTCY TO
DEAL WITHS AND TO COMPARTMENT USES USEALIZE THEM
TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE AND GET
EVERYBODY IN POWER AS SOON AS.>>Mayor Burton: IT’S A MASSIVE
POWER SHIFTING APPARATUS?>>ABSOLUTELY.
