1.  City Council amend Appendix A to the report (June 16, 2015) from the Acting City Manager by:

 

a.  deleting Condition 1 and replacing it with the following new Condition 1:

 

1.  Expanded gaming at Woodbine shall occur within the context of an integrated entertainment complex as previously approved by City Council in 2007. The approval of expanded gaming is conditional upon the service provider agreeing to finalize the outstanding Site Plan Control and Plan of Subdivision applications for an integrated complex, including entertainment, retail, hotel, restaurant, office for Woodbine's Phase 1A lands or agreeing to undertake a new development consistent with the previous Phase 1A concept. It is City Council's requirement that the integrated entertainment complex be built concurrently with the expanded gaming facility.

 

b.  adding a new Condition as follows:

 

"Labour Peace

 

The City will not consent to the expansion of the gaming at Woodbine unless the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and service provider(s) have entered into:

 

(a) an agreement through which the service provider(s) acknowledge(s) that, in relation to the existing collective agreement(s) to which Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation is bound related to the Woodbine gaming operations, the service provider is bound by that collective agreement as if it had been a party thereto in accordance with the "Sale of Business" provisions of the Labour Relations Act, 1995, SO 1995, c 1, Sch A, as amended; and

 

(b) an agreement through which the service provider(s) agree(s) to refrain from engaging in coercion, intimidation, threats, promises or undue influence or otherwise interfering in the formation, selection or administration of a trade union or the representation of employees by a trade union or from contributing financial or other support to a trade union representing or attempting to represent employees of either Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation or the service provider(s) employed in the Woodbine gaming operations, consistent with the provisions of the Labour Relations Act, 1995, SO 1995, c 1, Sch A, as amended;

 

and City Council requests that the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and its service provider enter into:

 

(c) an agreement, pursuant to s. 18(3) of the Labour Relations Act, 1995, SO 1995, c 1, Sch A, as amended, with any trade union seeking to act as the exclusive bargaining agent for a defined bargaining unit of employees of Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation or its service provider recognizing the trade union as the exclusive bargaining agent of the employees where the trade union can establish that a minimum of 50 percent plus 1 of the employees in the defined bargaining unit are members of the trade union and have signed union authorization cards.

 

This requirement shall apply to all operations undertaken by Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation /the service provider at Woodbine, but for construction, alteration, or repair of the premises conducted by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation; the service provider; or their lessees or tenants.

 

2.  City Council pass a resolution in support of expanded gaming at Woodbine Racetrack (555 Rexdale Boulevard) (Woodbine) in the Ontario and Lottery Gaming Corporation (OLG) C2 zone (see map in Appendix A) to the report (June16, 2015) from the Acting City Manager, as amended by Part 1 above, as required under Ontario Regulation 81/12, including additional electronic games and live dealer tables, subject to:

 

a.  the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation including the conditions set out in Appendix A to the report (June16, 2015) from the Acting City Manager, as amended ("the conditions") within its procurement process;

 

b.  the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation selecting a service provider that will enter into contractual obligations with Woodbine Entertainment Group to deliver an integrated gaming and a broad range of non-gaming related uses as outlined in the new Condition 1 per Part 1 above, that can attract substantial new spending to Toronto, resulting in significant net new employment opportunities and socio-economic benefits to the local community;

 

c.  the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation including a clause in its Casino Operating and Services Agreement requiring the service provider to report on how it will fulfil City conditions, and a timeline in which this will be undertaken, in a form satisfactory to the City Manager and the City Solicitor;

 

d.  the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation allowing City Council to consider a further report from the City Manager assessing how the service provider has met or has given an undertaking to  contractually commit to meeting the conditions, and decide whether to maintain or reverse its conditional resolution in support of expanded gaming at Woodbine;

 

e.  the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation not authorizing the establishment of expanded gaming and seeking Ministerial approval of the business case per O. Reg. 81/12 until City Council has considered and approved the report described in Part 2.d. above, has granted all planning approvals, and if required by City Council, entered into an agreement with the service provider; and

 

f.  the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation maintaining its accountability over Responsible Gambling directives, program elements and program performance measures for implementation and delivery at the Woodbine site.

 

3. City Council notify the Minister of Finance that the City Council resolution supporting expanded gaming at Woodbine will be void, should the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and the service provider fail to meet City requirements set out in Parts 1 and 2 above and Appendix A to the report (June 16, 2015) from the Acting City Manager, as amended.

  

4. City Council request the City Manager to report back to Executive Committee, when a planning application has been evaluated, with the assessment of how the service provider has met City conditions.

 

5.

Express stop; and

 

d. a Transportation Demand Management Plan to encourage the use of transit and other transportation modes for both employees and visitors.

 

11. The Service provider's proposal must include an infrastructure strategy that addresses any municipal servicing requirements and should include the submission of a Functional Servicing Study outlining the infrastructure works (internal and external to Woodbine) necessary to support the development plan. The study should address water consumption, sanitary and storm drainage, and the construction phasing of the infrastructure improvements, in accordance with the Servicing Report Terms of Reference in the City's Development

(a) an agreement through which the service provider(s) acknowledge(s) that, in relation to the existing collective agreement(s) to which OLG is bound related to the Woodbine gaming operations, the service provider is bound by that collective agreement as if it had been a party thereto in accordance with the "Sale of Business" provisions of the Labour Relations Act, 1995, SO 1995, c 1, Sch A, as amended; and

City Initiated Zoning By-law Exemption for 543 Marlee Avenue - Sweet House Coffee
City Council Decision

Item NY7.41 was withdrawn at City Council on July 7, 8 and 9, 2015.

City Council Decision Advice and Other Information

During the review of the Order Paper on July 7, 2015, Speaker Nunziata ruled Item NY7.41 out of order as the recommendation is contrary to the anti-bonusing provisions of Section 82 of the City of Toronto Act;  that directing a City-initiated rezoning for this specific property in order to bring the patio into compliance would directly assist the Sweet House Coffee café through the granting of a bonus; and the City Solicitor has advised that there are other options available to the property owner.
