7.  City Council request the Province to move ahead with legislative reforms and/or agreements for sharing of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) with the City of Toronto and other municipalities in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area for future budgets.

 

8.  If a share of the HST is not granted, City Council request the City Manager to engage the Province and the Canada Revenue Agency to explore the feasibility of a collection agreement that would facilitate the remittance of a sales tax to the City of Toronto, coordinate with other municipalities in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area to move forward with the same, and report to the Executive Committee in the fourth quarter of 2017.

 

9.  City Council request the Province to exempt any Toronto road tolls from HST and in the event that this is not possible, that the HST be applied to transit expansion in the City of Toronto.

b. traffic patterns into and out of Ward 5 Etobicoke-Lakeshore, with particular focus on traffic flow along The Queensway;

15.  City Council request the City Manager to report to the Executive Committee, as part of the long-term financial plan, on all legal, policy and regulatory tools to ensure that all revenue collected from road tolls on the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway are dedicated exclusively to transit and transportation initiatives and to further advise on possible independent oversight and audit with a view to maintaining the integrity of these funds and their intended purpose and maintaining public confidence.

 

16.  City Council direct the City Manager, the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer, and the General Manager, Economic Development and Culture to consult impacted businesses on the revenue options identified in Recommendations 2 and 3 in the report (November 17, 2016) from the City Manager and the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer, as part of the Long-Term Financial Plan consultation process.

 

17.  City Council direct the City Manager, in consultation with the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning and the City Solicitor, as part of the 2017 Budget Process, to report on options for City Council to establish a cash payment-in-lieu of parking policy for new residential developments which do not meet the City's parking standards, with the funds to be held in a reserve account dedicated to funding transit and cycling capital improvements.

Point of Order by Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti

Councillor Mammoliti, rising on a Point of Order, stated that Council had previously voted on ranked ballots and requested the Speaker to rule on whether a two-thirds vote is needed to re-open this issue.


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and advised that she would provide a ruling.

Speaker Nunziata subsequently made the following ruling: Members, I have been asked whether debate regarding ranked ballots is in order at this time given past decisions. Council's last vote on this matter was under item EX8.1 on September 30, 2015, more than 12 months ago. That item as about City Council taking a position on what should be included in municipal legislation planned by the province. Despite the City Council decision, the province subsequently introduced legislation that allows for the City Council to use ranked ballots. We do not need to re-open a previous decision at this time. First, the decision was more than 12 months ago, and second, with the passing of new legislation, there has been a change in circumstances since Council voted on ranked ballots.

Point of Order by Councillor Gord Perks

Councillor Perks, rising on a Point of Order, stated that Councillor Di Ciano should put his name on the list to speak if he wished to speak or make comments on the Item, as he had not asked any questions of Councillor Ainslie on his motion. Councillor Perks asked the Speaker to call Councillor Di Ciano to order and cut his time.


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that Councillor Di Ciano should ask clarifying questions.

2 - Motion to Amend Motion moved by Councillor Josh Matlow (Carried)

That motion 1 by Councillor Shiner be amended by deleting Recommendations 9, 10, 16 and 17:

 

9. Express support for the Province's proposal to amend the Planning Act to not permit privately initiated appeals of a municipality’s refusal to amend new secondary plans for two years.

 

10. Request the Minister of Municipal Affairs to amend the Planning Act to not allow privately initiated amendments to newly approved official plan policies stemming from comprehensive municipal reviews of existing official plans and secondary plan amendments, along with concurrent implementing zoning by-laws, for a two-year period.

 

16. Advise the Province of its concern that a full OMB hearing on an appeal of a planning application should not be automatic and should only be scheduled if the OMB first finds that a municipality has acted unreasonably or in a manner not consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) or not in conformity with Provincial Plans.

 

17. Advise the Province that it should consider using legislation to limit appeal matters and impose directions for changes to the OMB's Rules of Practice Procedure to effectively limit the scope of OMB hearings without focusing discussion on the term "de novo" hearing.

 

and inserting the following new Recommendations:

 

9. Express support for the Province's proposal to amend the Planning Act to not permit privately initiated appeals of a municipality’s refusal to amend new secondary plans for five years

 

10. Request the Minister of Municipal Affairs to amend the Planning Act to not allow privately initiated amendments to newly approved official plan policies stemming from comprehensive municipal reviews of existing official plans and secondary plan amendments, along with concurrent implementing zoning by-laws, for a five-year period.

 

16. Advise the Province of its concern that a full OMB hearing, or a hearing 'de novo' on an appeal of a planning application should not be automatic and should only be scheduled if the OMB first finds that a municipality’s decision falls outside a range of reasonable outcomes or in a manner not consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) or not in conformity with Provincial Plans.

 

17. Request the Minister of Municipal Affairs to amend the Planning Act to limit appeal matters and impose directions for changes to the OMB's Rules of Practice Procedure to effectively limit the scope of OMB hearings and focus on deference to municipal decision-making.
