Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that she had not previously ruled Councillor Layton's question out of order but had reminded the Councillor to keep his questions to the matter before Council, and that she had requested Councillor Crawford to come to the Speaker's desk so that she could talk with him.

Point of Order by Councillor Gary Crawford

Councillor Crawford, rising on a Point of Order, stated that this issue regarding rebates came up at the Budget Committee and as the rebate program is part of the Operating Budget, unfortunately questions about the rebate are out of order.


Point of Privilege by Deputy Mayor Denzil Minnan-Wong

Deputy Mayor Minnan-Wong, rising on a Point of Privilege, stated that Councillor Layton had remarked that Councillor Crawford had snuck up to talk to the Speaker and that the remark was disrespectful and that Councillor Layton should apologize.


Point of Privilege by Councillor Mike Layton

Councillor Layton, rising on a Point of Privilege, stated that he would replace the word "snuck" with the words "walked to whisper in the Speaker's ear."


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Points of Order and Privilege and ruled that Councillor Layton could continue to question staff and that the Councillor should keep his questions to staff on the matter before Council.

Point of Order by Councillor Mike Layton

Councillor Layton, rising on a Point of Order, stated that he is trying to get clarification from staff as to why residents will see an above three percent increase on their solid waste bill.


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata ruled Councillor Layton's questions about the rebate out of order.

Point of Order by Mayor John Tory

Mayor Tory, rising on a Point of Order, stated that the budget Council is currently debating and bin rebates which are part of the Operating Budget are two separate budgets.  Mayor Tory also stated that Members will have a chance to debate the bin rebates at the meeting in the new year.


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that Councillor Carroll is to keep her questions to the matter before Council as she has ruled Councillor Layton out of order for similar questions.

Point of Order by Councillor Mike Layton

Councillor Layton, rising on a Point of Order, asked the Speaker to rule whether a vote on City Building Fund is a reopening of a lost motion voted on under Item EX9.1 at the City Council meeting in October 2019.


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata made the following ruling:

Members, earlier in the debate on this item Councillor Layton asked whether a vote on Item EX11.26 is a reopening of a lost motion voted on under Item EX9.1 in October.

The principle behind the reopening rule is that City Council should not be placed in the same circumstances on a matter within a 12 month period without a two-thirds vote to reopen.

In my view, the circumstances before Council today are different than the ones facing Council in October when it debated the City's transit options. Among other things, the recommendation in EX11.26 is broader in scope than Councillor Layton's previous motion.

Accordingly, I am ruling that Item EX11.26 is in order.

Point of Privilege by Councillor Shelley Carroll

Councillor Carroll, rising on a Point of Privilege, stated that Deputy Mayor Minnan-Wong's comments that certain Members of Council are taxaholics, that the Budget Committee will not find efficiencies and that Councillors do not care is rhetoric.  Councillor Carroll requested the Speaker to rule on the tone of the Deputy Mayor's comments.


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Privilege and asked the Deputy Mayor to retract his comment that Councillors do not care.

Deputy Mayor Minnan-Wong retracted his comments.

Point of Privilege by Councillor Shelley Carroll

Councillor Carroll, rising on a Point of Privilege, stated that Council has had nothing but a serious discussion and that Deputy Mayor Minnan-Wong's comment that the some Councillors are celebrating with the introduction of the new tax is inappropriate and asked the Speaker to rule on the tone of the Deputy Mayor's comments.


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Privilege and ruled that some Members of Council had said they were celebrating.

Motion to Reconsider Vote moved by Councillor Brad Bradford (Carried)

That in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 27, Council Procedures, City Council reconsider the vote on motion 3a by Councillor Bailão.


3b - Motion to Amend Item (Additional) moved by Councillor Ana Bail„o (Carried)

That:

 

1. City Council recognize that homelessness in Toronto is an ongoing critical and emergency issue requiring the Provincial and Federal governments to commit on an expedited basis to build on the initiatives the city has taken to date.

 

2. City Council advise the Provincial and Federal governments that the following actions have been taken by the City over the last five years:

 

a. the City has added more than 3,000 shelter beds since 2015. Toronto’s shelter system has more than 7,000 beds across 64 permanent shelters and motel/hotel programs. Close to 2,300 beds in hotel-based programs are designated primarily to serve families. The City operates 11 shelters directly and provides funding to community agencies for the operation of the remaining 53 shelters;

 

b. in addition to the existing 24-hour respite sites with 414 spaces, the City has opened six new services this winter, adding 485 spaces, for a total of at least 899 spaces available as part of the 2019-2020 winter services plan with additional contingency spaces that may be activated as needed. This is an increase over the 805 spaces provided last winter, and significantly more service than 2014 when just two services were provided during Extreme Cold Weather Alerts only. This is the sixth consecutive winter that the City will increase overall capacity to ensure safe and welcoming places for people who need them; and

 

c. since 1998, the City of Toronto has warned that homelessness is a national crisis that requires urgent action on housing by Provincial and Federal governments. 

 

3. City Council request the Federal Government take the following actions to mitigate the rising number of homeless persons in Toronto:

 

a. identify Federally-owned spaces which could be made available for emergency homeless shelter this winter and, should City staff request these sites on a short term basis, immediately provide them for this use;

 

b. develop a federally administered system to house refugee/asylum claimants who arrive in Toronto without adequate housing;

 

c. create a predictable funding regime to ensure the city is quickly reimbursed for its expenditures for providing temporary housing for refugee/asylum claimants; and

 

d. immediately expand funding to create new supportive housing units in the City of Toronto to transition people experiencing homelessness from shelters to permanent housing.

 

4. City Council request the Provincial Government take the following actions to mitigate the rising number of homeless persons in Toronto:

 

a. identify Provincially-owned space which could be made available for emergency homeless shelter this winter and, should City staff request these sites on a short-term basis, immediately provide them for this use;

 

b. require municipal governments receiving Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative (CHPI) funding to build new shelters that provide sufficient capacity to accommodate their local homeless populations;

 

c. immediately expand funding to create new supportive housing units in the City of Toronto to transition people experiencing homelessness from shelters to permanent housing;

 

d. create a specific funding stream for shelter services in Toronto that is responsive to sudden increases in demand for services, and in recognition that many people from underserved municipalities are accessing Toronto’s emergency shelter system; and

 

e. provide equal rent scales for Ontario Works/Ontario Disability Support Program recipients regardless of what type of housing they reside in.

 

5. City Council direct the General Manager of Shelter Support and Housing Administration to take the following actions to deal with the urgent issue of homelessness in Toronto:

 

a. continue to look for sites, both City and privately owned, to complete Council’s previously approved plans for shelter expansion;

 

b. continue to explore opportunities to maintain and expand the regional refugee strategy and provide housing opportunities for refugee households in surrounding municipalities;

 

c. continue to develop opportunities to partner with the Toronto Community Housing Corporation to access vacant units in order to provide housing opportunities for people experiencing homelessness; and

 

d. continue to work with the Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness to continue to expand the Coordinated Access to Housing and Supports system and increase housing outcomes for people experiencing chronic homelessness.
