The committee met at 1529 in committee room 1, following a closed session.


The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): Okay, it looks like Hansard is ready. We’re back in open session. We have a motion. Yes, Ms. Elliott?

Mrs. Christine Elliott: Thank you, Chair. I move that the Chair write a letter to the South West LHIN asking them to provide a report to the Standing Committee on Social Policy that includes details pertaining to all costs, including but not limited to design, layout, writing, printing and distribution, of their publication entitled Spring 2014 Community Bulletin: The Activities of Your South West Local Health Integration Network; and

That this report be sent to the committee no later than the day that falls 15 business days after this motion passes.

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): You’ve heard the motion. Discussion? Hearing none—

Mrs. Christine Elliott: If I may, Chair, just by way of explanation: This publication was quite a glossy publication that was included in a regional distribution throughout the South West LHIN area, so we are very concerned about the costs associated with it. I think it’s something that this committee should be informed about.

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): Okay. Further discussion? If not: All those in favour? Opposed? The motion is carried.

Any further business, for the good of Rotary?

Ms. Cindy Forster: Are we going to find out whether all the other LHINS have the same glossy productions once we find out the costs of this one? It’s a good question to ask.

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): What was that? What was the question?

Ms. Cindy Forster: Are the other LHINs all putting out a similar production?

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): I would expect that most LHINs do put out some type of production like this, but my guess, being in the South West LHIN, is that this seems to be more glossy and more widely distributed than they have been in the past. There seems to be a reason for—

Mme France Gélinas: Without making a motion, then, is it reasonable, Chair, that you write to the other LHINs and ask them for what kind of print media they send to which audiences?

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): Okay. Yes, Helena?

Ms. Helena Jaczek: Yes. I guess one would want to be fairly specific. I’m not quite sure how you would word that.

Ms. Cindy Forster: Well, we could send them a copy of South West’s and ask them if they produce something similar. If they do—

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): Yes. We could write, “It has come to our attention that the South West LHIN had a spring bulletin. Do you publish and distribute similar material?” and then ask them for the same thing that we asked in the—

Ms. Helena Jaczek: I think that would be helpful, to be a little more specific.

Mme France Gélinas: Good idea.

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): Okay?

Ms. Cindy Forster: Great.

The Chair (Mr. Ernie Hardeman): Anything else? If not, the committee is adjourned. Thank you very much for your kind indulgence in putting up with me.

The committee adjourned at 1532.
