Session de printemps 2024

Motion 1 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas Highway 407 is underutilized because it has some of the highest tolls in North America; and

Whereas eliminating tolls for transport trucks on Highway 407 would remove as many as 21,000 trucks per day from Highway 401 and other highways; and

Whereas diverting transport trucks from Highway 401 and other highways would significantly reduce traffic, reduce emissions, and improve safety; and

Whereas eliminating tolls for transport trucks on Highway 407 would improve Ontario's supply chain for food and other goods; and

Whereas the Government has forgiven a billion dollars in penalties for the 407 ETR which should have been used to lower tolls for Ontarians;

Therefore, the Legislative Assembly calls on the Government to remove tolls for transport trucks on Highway 407.

Motion 5 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas Ontarians are experiencing a cost-of-living crisis driven by low wages and corporate greed; and

Whereas costs associated with the climate crisis are also increasing, including grocery and insurance prices, infrastructure damage, and natural disaster response; and

Whereas the Ontario Government has made the climate crisis worse and more expensive by eliminating funding to make homes more energy efficient, cancelling clean energy projects, and removing protections from farmlands;

Therefore, the Legislative Assembly calls on the Ontario Government, in partnership with the federal government, to subsidize the cost of heat pumps and other energy-saving retrofits for all Ontarians, in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions and reduce energy bills.

Motion 4 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas Kitchener is one of Ontario's key economic hubs and is home to three world-class postsecondary institutions; and

Whereas a lack of reliable transit options impedes quality of life and growth opportunities for the region; and

Whereas the Official Opposition NDP has been advocating for two-way, all-day GO service between Kitchener and Toronto since 2012; and

Whereas the Government has failed to deliver a GO Transit strategy for Kitchener despite years of promises; and

Whereas the previous Liberal government also failed to deliver on their promise to implement all-day GO service to Kitchener;

Therefore, the Legislative Assembly calls on the Government to provide a firm funding commitment and a clear timeline for the delivery of frequent, all-day, two-way GO rail service along the full length of the vital Kitchener GO corridor.

Motion 3 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas the Government is under criminal investigation by the RCMP for their removal of lands from the Greenbelt; and

Whereas the Auditor General is in the process of reviewing whether there has been mismanagement and abuse of Ministerial Zoning Orders; and

Whereas there are outstanding questions about an inappropriate relationship between a former Government Minister and a land speculator, and incorrect information provided to the Integrity Commissioner about this relationship; and

Whereas there are outstanding questions about whether there was preferential treatment given to a foreign company to build a private spa on public land at Ontario Place; and

Whereas there are outstanding questions about preferential treatment given to Government donors and personal friends of the Premier with respect to the building of Highway 413; and

Whereas there are outstanding questions about unqualified patronage appointments to public agencies, boards, and commissions; and

Whereas the Premier has admitted that he regularly uses his personal phone to conduct Government business and those communications might be relevant to these inquiries;

Therefore the Legislative Assembly calls on the Premier to cease his access to information appeal and disclose the contents of his personal phone and email accounts to the Information and Privacy Commissioner.

Motion 2 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas Ontario Place is public property intended for the public benefit; and

Whereas there has been no meaningful public consultation on how Ontario Place should be developed; and

Whereas there is evidence to suggest that the bidding process gave an unfair advantage to specific companies and there was no Fairness Monitor in place to oversee the process; and

Whereas the Government has refused to release details of the reported 95-year lease for a private spa; and

Whereas the Government is spending at least $650 million of public money to provide private benefits for the spa; and

Whereas people are experiencing an affordability crisis and feeling the impacts of this Government's cuts to healthcare, education, and housing;

Therefore the Legislative Assembly calls on the Government to terminate the lease with Therme Canada and stop the transfer of public funds to private profits.

Motion 1 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas the Auditor General and the Integrity Commissioner found that the Government's decision to remove lands from the Greenbelt gave preferential treatment to certain private interests; and

Whereas the reports of these independent officers call into question this Government's decision-making on other ongoing transactions, including Highway 413, urban boundary expansions, Ontario Place, healthcare privatization and stalled transit projects; and 

Whereas the witnesses who refused to cooperate with the Auditor General's investigation must be compelled to provide their evidence; and 

Whereas Members of this Government have previously advocated for the use of select committees to investigate misconduct, including the gas plant cancellations; 

Therefore the Legislative Assembly calls on the Government to appoint a Select Committee on Changes to the Greenbelt to ensure full transparency and accountability.

Session de printemps 2023

Motion 4 Mme Stiles (Davenport)


Whereas there is a cost of living crisis in Ontario; and

Whereas the cost of rent has increased to more than 50% of the take-home income for many Ontario households; and

Whereas the removal of all rent control from homes first occupied after 2018 has exposed tenants to unaffordable double-digit rent increases; and

Whereas the ability to increase rent between tenancies accelerates the rising cost of rent and incentivizes illegal evictions; and

Whereas housing is a human right;

Therefore, the Legislative Assembly calls on the government to implement rent control on all units, including between tenancies.

Motion 3 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas the independent Financial Accountability Office found that the Government failed to allocate $600 million in COVID-19 response funds and underspent its education budget by $432 million in the 2022-2023 fiscal year; and 

Whereas the funding provided to school boards has been inadequate to cover pandemic-related expenses; and 

Whereas this has resulted in an estimated budget shortfall of at least $100 million for school boards across the province; and 

Whereas school boards are proposing hundreds of staff layoffs due to this budget shortfall; 

Therefore the Legislative Assembly calls on the Government to cover all pandemic-related expenditures for school boards, including the programs and infrastructure needed to support students following three years of learning disruption.

Motion 2 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas there is a mental health crisis in Ontario; and

Whereas demand for services provided by the Canadian Mental Health Association has significantly increased, including demand for Assertive Community Treatment teams, court diversion services, and behavioral support services for seniors; and

Whereas base funding for the Canadian Mental Health Association has fallen significantly behind the rate of inflation since 2014; and

Whereas the Canadian Mental Health Association is experiencing high staff turnover and staff vacancy rates due to uncompetitive salaries, staff burnout, and wage suppression under Bill 124, Protecting a Sustainable Public Sector for Future Generations Act, 2019;

Therefore the Legislative Assembly calls on the government to increase the base funding for each branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association by 8% as an immediate emergency stabilization investment.

Motion 1 Mme Stiles (Davenport)

Whereas more than a third of operating rooms in Ontario's public hospitals do not meet the 90 per cent target for operating room use, mostly due to lack of funding and staff needed to run all the province's operating rooms simultaneously; 

Whereas the government permitted the crisis in our healthcare system to persist while billions of dollars in unspent public funds are allocated to contingency funds instead of Ontario hospitals that are struggling to maintain quality of care due to understaffing; and 

Whereas the Ford government is appealing the Superior Court ruling declaring Bill 124, Protecting a Sustainable Public Sector for Future Generations Act, 2019, unconstitutional, despite the Minister being told about the devastating impact on hiring, recruitment, and retention of healthcare workers; 

Whereas the infrastructure to expand surgical capacity already exists and is sitting idle in public hospitals but the government is choosing to spend taxpayer funds on investor-owned, for-profit surgical suites; and 

Whereas high-quality facilities across the province have idle operating room time, such as Health Sciences North, which is only funded to use 14 out of 17 state-of-the-art operating rooms and Toronto's University Health Network which is unable to simultaneously run all of their operating rooms because of understaffing; 

Therefore, the Legislative Assembly calls on the government to fund and fully utilize public operating rooms instead of further privatizing hospital operating room services.

Session d'automne 2022

Motion 3 Mme Bell (University—Rosedale)

Whereas all Ontarians have the right to adequate housing; and 

Whereas to ensure an adequate supply of housing, Ontario must build 1.5 million new market and non-market homes over the next decade; and 

Whereas the for-profit private market by itself will not, and cannot, deliver enough homes that are affordable and meet the needs of Ontarians of all incomes, ages, family sizes, abilities and cultures; and 

Whereas the housing policies of successive PC and Liberal provincial governments have relied almost entirely on the for-profit private market to deliver new housing; and 

Whereas these housing policies have focused on delivering profits for investors, rather than homes for people, and thus have failed to ensure that newly-built homes are actually affordable and meet the needs of all Ontarians; and

Whereas these housing policies have failed to end exclusionary zoning, and have blocked access to affordable and adequate housing options in the neighbourhoods where people want to live; and 

Whereas these policies have encouraged more speculative investment and market bubbles, and have driven up the costs of housing beyond the reach of ordinary Ontarians; and 

Whereas these failed housing policies have put tenants at increased risk of rent gouging, eviction and displacement, and have threatened the inclusivity and vibrancy of growing neighbourhoods; and 

Whereas these failed housing policies will sacrifice more irreplaceable farmland, natural heritage and Greenbelt lands to costly and unsustainable urban sprawl, putting Ontario's food security at risk; 

Therefore, the Legislative Assembly calls on the Government of Ontario to implement a comprehensive housing plan that ensures the right of all Ontarians to adequate housing, including ending exclusionary zoning and enabling access to affordable and adequate housing options in all neighbourhoods; stabilizing housing markets and stopping harmful speculation; establishing a strong public role in the funding, delivery, acquisition and protection of an adequate supply of affordable and non-market homes; protecting tenants from rent gouging and displacement, and ensuring the inclusivity of growing neighbourhoods; and focusing growth efficiently and sustainably within existing urban boundaries, while protecting irreplaceable farmland, wetlands, the Greenbelt and other natural heritage from costly and unsustainable urban sprawl.

Motion 2 Mme Gélinas (Nickel Belt)

Whereas staffing shortages in Ontario have forced emergency room and ICU closures across Ontario, reducing access to complex and potentially life-saving care in many communities; and

Whereas other hospitals have been forced to close units, redirect patients to other facilities and reduce beds, contributing to ER wait times of up to 36 hours for patients that require a hospital stay; and

Whereas health care job vacancies have more than quadrupled since 2015, resulting in more than 45,000 openings in primary care, and research by the Financial Accountability Office of Ontario underscores the urgent need to train and hire tens of thousands of extra nurses, PSWs and allied health professionals to meet the government's own 2024-2025 LTC targets for hands-on-staffing-care, while the College of Nurses of Ontario reports over 15,000 nurses in Ontario are licensed and not practicing; and

Whereas health care workers are overworked, underpaid, subject to violence, and distressed by their inability to provide the care patients need due to poor working conditions and inadequate staffing, driving many to leave the profession in record numbers; and

Whereas Ford government policies such as the Protecting a Sustainable Public Sector for Future Generations Act, 2019 (previously Bill 124) and other stopgap measures have failed to fix the problem, leaving nurses, allied health professionals and other frontline health care workers with wages falling far short of inflation, while the Government of Ontario chose not to invest over one billion dollars of the money allocated for hospitals in the 2021-2022 Budget; and
 
Whereas this government allowed the health human resource crisis to persist while billions of dollars in unspent public funds have been allocated to discretionary funds instead of Ontario hospitals that are struggling to maintain quality of care because they are dramatically understaffed; and

Whereas the Ford government has failed to develop a comprehensive health care staffing plan to train, recruit and retain sufficient numbers of health care workers and have ignored the advice of health care professionals on how to solve the staffing crisis in hospital and primary care; and

Whereas the Ministry of Health's inadequate temporary retention bonus for nurses fails to address systemic issues in the sector and falls far short of the efforts to retain, retrain and recruit front-line health care staff in Quebec, British Columbia, and Atlantic Canada; and

Whereas the Minister of Health's recent directives on internationally trained health care professionals fails to provide the funding, education spaces and internships needed to help address the staffing shortfall, and fails to implement many of the painful lessons learned during the pandemic; and

Whereas nursing vacancies in Ontario hospitals increased by almost 300% between March 2020 and March 2022, the turnover rate for nurses has increased by 72% since 2020, and the turnover rate for RPNs, PSWs, and other healthcare workers more than doubled since 2016;

Therefore the Legislative Assembly calls on the Ford Government to create, in consultation with unions and other health sector stakeholders, a multi-layer Healthcare Worker Recruitment and Retention incentive package that includes short, medium, and long-term solutions to recruit, retain, and return workers across the health sector with full-time, public, unionized positions and immediately repeals Bill 124, restoring workers' right to bargain for wages that reflect their worth and the significant impact of rising inflation.

Motion 1 M. Tabuns (Toronto—Danforth)

Whereas both Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) recipients live in legislated deep poverty; and 

Whereas people on fixed incomes are forced to make untenable choices between buying food and paying rent just to survive and the Ford government's meager $58-increase to ODSP rates and freezing of OW rates at $733/month do not keep pace with the actual cost of living; and 

Whereas inflation is at a forty-year-high, groceries are more expensive than ever, and basic expenses like hydro and gas bills continue to increase; and 

Whereas average rents alone are significantly more than the entire monthly payments received by social assistance recipients, and affordable housing wait lists in some communities are up to 10 years' long and even longer for people who need supportive housing; and 

Whereas the Ford government's current approach to social assistance rates is untenable and denies recipients a dignified life; 

Therefore, the Legislative Assembly calls on the Ford government to immediately double Ontario Works and Ontario Disability Support Program payments to recipients as part of an overall strategy to reduce poverty in Ontario.
