Campaigning for our local hospitals

(May 25, 2017) As you have likely heard by now both the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital and Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston are working toward redevelopments of their respective facilities. Both hospitals have done an excellent job and I commend the management and staff alongside the community for their diligence and so far great success. 

 

At this point both hospitals have completed Stage 1 of the approvals process.  They both have the support of their respective Local Health Integration Networks. And they are both preparing for the next stages of the five-part approvals process.

 

But, the fact of the matter is this: there is an elephant in the room and it is the Kathleen Wynne Government.  The reality is that until the provincial Liberal Government agrees to provide the required funding there is very little that can happen to get our hospitals built.

 

Politically, we are doing all the right things. There are petitions circulating in each community. If you haven’t signed one yet I urge you to stop by the hospitals or any of my office to add your name to the list. I have also written letters, raised the issue in the Ontario Legislature on many occasions, and on June 1st, I will be debating a Private Members’ Resolution that calls upon the Liberal Government to approve the planning grants.

 

The Resolution reads as follows:

 

That, in the opinion of this House, the Minister of Health should immediately approve the planning grant requested by the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital in the Town of Collingwood; and, the planning grant requested by Stevenson Memorial Hospital in the Town of New Tecumseth allowing both hospitals to proceed respectively with much needed redevelopments.

 

If you are still interested in joining us at Queen’s Park that day I ask that you please let the hospital or my office know.  Buses are being organized by both hospitals.

 

We all want to see our hospitals redeveloped as soon as possible and that is why I continue to urge everyone to flood the Liberal Government with petitions, emails and letters so that they know that our community is united and serious about these projects.  The Premier can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by mailing a letter to Queen’s Park, Toronto, ON M7A 1A8. You can also email Minister Hoskins at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or writing him at the same address as above.

 

Healthcare needs to be a top priority for our governments. It also needs to be equal across the province. There is a real need for both hospitals in our respective communities and I am confident that if we keep the pressure on we will be successful. Let’s not let the Kathleen Wynne Government make us wait any longer.

 

It’s time our hospitals are moved to the top of the province’s priority list.  

Wilson continues to fight for service clubs

(May 17, 2017) Today in question period, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson again asked the government what they have done to remove the regulatory barriers and burdens facing service clubs in communities across the province. He has been lobbying the government on the issue since 2015.

 

“Mr. Speaker, in February 2015 my Private Members’ Resolution concerning service clubs received all-party support in this House,” said Wilson. “The government sent my request to the Standing Committee on Social Policy for a mere one half day of hearings; the committee issued a summary of recommendations, and since then we have heard nothing despite my repeated requests for action on the issues raised by service clubs.”

 

Wilson remains concerned the government has not yet struck the all-party committee that was called for in his original resolution despite their pledge of support for it and the release of the summary of recommendations he referred to in his question. He hopes his query today reminds the government of the importance of this issue.

 

In the supplementary, Wilson’s colleague, Parry Sound—Muskoka MPP Norm Miller, spoke about issues service clubs in his riding are still experiencing as a result of the government’s inaction.

VIDEO: Wilson introduces Merchant Navy Day Act, 2017

 (May 5, 2017) On Thursday, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to introduce legislation that, if passed, will designate September 3rd in each year as Merchant Navy Veterans Day in Ontario. Before introducing the legislation, Wilson spoke to a reception of Second World War veterans and various representatives of veteran and military organizations who were at Queen’s Park for a tribute ceremony in the legislature earlier in the day. 

“Canada’s Merchant Navy played a critical role in the war effort, carrying desperately needed equipment, fuel, goods, and personnel to Europe and around the world,” said Wilson.  “These brave men and women did this vital job without recognition to ensure the freedom and democracy of not only our country but around the world.”

Wilson continued, “…a total of 12,000 men and women served in Canada's Merchant Navy, more than 25,000 merchant ship voyages were made during the war. More than 70 Canadian Merchant ships were sunk by enemies, and over 1700 Merchant Mariners lost their lives.”

Wilson’s legislation echoes legislation passed by the Government of Canada that also proclaims September 3rd in each year as Merchant Navy Veterans Day. The federal legislation was tabled in 2001 by the Member of Parliament in Simcoe-Grey at the time—Mr. Paul Bonwick.  It subsequently passed in 2003.

Other provinces including, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have made similar proclamations in their respective provinces to help bring awareness to merchant navy veterans.

“I would also like to recognize and commend the late Mr. Jack Stapleton, a former Wasaga Beach resident and navy veteran, for inspiring the initiative federally, and Mr. Stephane Ouellette, President and CEO of the Merchant Navy Commemorative Theme Project for continuing to promoting the significance of September 3 across Canada,” said Wilson.

Home affordability crisis needs addressing

(April 12, 2017) A big issue the Ontario PC Party has heard about in recent years is the rising cost of buying a home and the steep increase in rental rates.


Just the other day in my Collingwood office, a resident came in to say how frustrated her daughter is with high rental rates in the region. The daughter simply can't find an affordable place to live.


This affordability crisis is an issue that is going to grow worse unless the government takes action.


We've seen the government acknowledge the problem but Ontarians have yet to see a concrete plan that will bring them some relief.


As things stand today, thousands of hardworking Ontarians simply can't afford to purchase a home.


Instead, they are forced to rent or stay with family. In some cases, people purchase homes in more affordable areas of the province, but this often means commuting long distances to work.


Overall, we have an unpleasant and unacceptable situation on our hands.


One of the challenges in Simcoe-Grey is the fact supply is incredibly low, which pushes home prices up. This is something touched on by the Southern Georgian Bay Association of Realtors in its March report.


"Overall supply stands at record lows," the association said. "There were just 451 active residential listings on the association's MLS system at the end of March 2017, down 52.1 percent from year-ago levels."


And yet the value of residential transactions in March was $123.5-million, the association said, adding this represents a 47.5 percent increase over March 2016.


Municipal officials at the county level are working hard to alleviate the affordable housing issue in our communities and I thank them for their efforts.


In 2014, the County of Simcoe approved its 10-year Affordable Housing and Homelessness Prevention Strategy.


The strategy aims to ensure a range of affordable housing options for all residents in the county.


Through various planning tools, the county has made a commitment to achieve, "a minimum of 2,685 new affordable housing units throughout the region by 2024."


Still, the Wynne Liberals need to also show leadership on this file.


On several occasions now, our party has encouraged the government to act.


Just the other day, PC Leader Patrick Brown wrote Finance Minister Charles Sousa, demanding the Liberals come up with a meaningful plan that will help Ontarians.


Mr. Brown noted that, "we are concerned that your government's approach to date seems solely focused on taxation measures, rather than looking more broadly at the housing sector and all the potential challenges and solutions."


He continues, saying that: "Many of your government's policies have contributed to the challenge we are facing today, including the additional land transfer tax and added red tape in the housing sector."


Ontario's housing affordability crisis will require the government to address both supply and demand.


As Mr. Brown noted in his letter to Minister Sousa, "It will also require the expertise of individuals in all areas of the industry, not just conversations behind the closed doors of the Premier's office."


Our party is calling on the government to make a commitment to address supply, including the red tape and regulatory burden, which both limits the supply of new housing, and increases carrying costs which are passed on to consumers.


We are also asking the government to address demand.


And we are asking for a review of the government portfolio immediately, to determine how many vacant residential properties the province owns in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area.


Finally, we are calling on the Liberals to establish a panel of industry experts – including professional planners, builders, mortgage professionals, realtors, and municipal representatives – to develop both short and long-term solutions to address Ontario's housing challenges.


I will continue to advocate on your behalf on this matter as it's one of great importance. Today, for many, the dream of home ownership is just that – a dream.


We can do better.

Jim Wilson is the Progressive Conservative MPP for Simcoe-Grey.
