Speaker Nunziata called upon Mayor Tory to address City Council.  Mayor Tory, on behalf of City Council, acknowledged the passing of the 62nd Mayor and First Mayor of the amalgamated City of Toronto, Mel Lastman.  Mayor Tory spoke of Mr. Lastman's career in politics which started in 1969: that he was elected Mayor of North York in 1973, an office he held for ten terms, and that he was elected Mayor of the amalgamated City in 1998 and retired in 2003.  Mayor Tory remarked what an enormous job it was to be the Mayor of the amalgamated City and to try to bring together a group of people, 54 Members of Council, who were married in forced circumstances by the Province, and to try to move forward a united City. Mayor Tory noted the success of former Mayor Mel Lastman in the creation of the first Mayor's Committee on Child Abuse, and the first Mayor's Committee on Drinking and Driving, as well as his keen interest in Race Relations and Elder Abuse issues. Mayor Tory noted that these were issues that Mel Lastman took leadership of and addressed the challenges in a forthright way. Mayor Tory remarked on the work of Mr. Lastman with the Provincial and Federal levels of government on Toronto's waterfront, work that continues today.  Mayor Tory spoke of how people loved Mel Lastman because of his authenticity, and that he was extremely kind-hearted and respectful to everyone no matter what their station in life. Mayor Tory commented that Mel Lastman was larger than life and that he defended, promoted and advanced the interest of the City. Mayor Tory, on behalf of Members of City Council and the people of the City of Toronto for which he served for so long, thanked Mel Lastman for this service and thanked Mel Lastman's family for supporting him during his service.  Mayor Tory, on behalf of Members of City Council and the people of the City of Toronto, expressed his sincere condolences to Mel Lastman's family.

Update on Outstanding Vehicle-for-Hire Directives

City Council on December 15, 16 and 17, 2021, adopted the following:

 

1. City Council amend Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 441, Fees and Charges, Appendix C - Schedule 12, Municipal Licensing and Standards to maintain, throughout 2022, the temporary 75 percent reduction on the Vehicle-for-Hire Accessibility Fund Program regulatory charges, approved by Council in February 2021.

 

2. City Council direct the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards, in consultation with the Interim Director, Environment and Energy and The Atmospheric Fund, to establish a Vehicle-for-Hire group, under the already established Electric Vehicle Working Group, that brings relevant stakeholders together to develop a strategy to accelerate emissions reductions and electrification of the vehicle-for-hire industry, including considerations for equity and potential implementation challenges for any proposed advice; the results of this work shall be considered by the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards as an input to the development of any requirements or programs that seek to reduce emissions in the Vehicle-for-Hire industry.

City Council encourage the Vehicle-for-Hire industry and Private Transportation Companies to consider establishing COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandates and to provide financial support to allow drivers to get tested, to recover, or to self-isolate and to report back to the next meeting or the March 2022 meeting of the General Government and Licensing Committee.
