Press Releases

Season's Greetings from your MPP Jim Wilson

(December 13, 2021) As the holidays approach I want to commend everyone in Simcoe-Grey for their strength and patience through what has been another stressful pandemic year. 

 Twelve months ago, I had thought COVID-19 was nearing an end.  Unfortunately, despite lock-downs, social distancing and vaccines we have had to endure third and fourth waves of the virus and, more recently, a new variant.  Despite these disappointments the world is slowly getting back to normal. 

 

While it is clear that COVID will be with us in one form or another for some time to come, we are beginning to enjoy near normal lives.  Hospitalizations are down, children are back in school and most sectors of the economy are bouncing back. 

 

We are moving in the right direction.  We should be thankful for the progress we have made, and resolve to stay the course.  Let’s continue to heed the advice of medical experts, follow public health guidelines and get vaccinated.  We will get through this.

 

Simcoe-Grey is fortunate to have enjoyed its share of good news in 2021.  Collingwood General and Marine Hospital received the go-ahead and funding to move forward with planning and design of an expanded and upgraded building.  I am confident that Stevenson Memorial will soon hear similar good news. 

 

After a years-long battle, new life-altering medications for Cystic Fibrosis patients are now being made available under Ontario’s publically funded drug program.  CF families in our area deserve credit for leading the fight. 

 

And, we were all delighted to welcome Alliston native Deanne Rose home this summer to celebrate her role in winning Women’s Soccer Gold at the Tokyo Olympics.  We can be proud knowing that our region produces such world-class talent as Deanne.  

 

COVID aside, we’ve had a good year.  As you celebrate the Birth of Christ, remember our greatest gifts are family and friends.  Make time to let those closest to you know that they are loved and appreciated. 

 

Please accept my best wishes for a very happy holiday season and a healthy, peaceful and prosperous New Year.

 

Merry Christmas.

 

Tis' the Season

Drysdale xmas tree 2017 WEBSITE

(November 29, 2021) The Christmas season is upon us.  And, for those who celebrate, many will be looking to bring home and decorate a festive tree. 

 

In 2015 Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to sponsor the Christmas Tree Day Act to support the important industry which produces Christmas trees.  Since then, Christmas Tree Day occurs in Ontario on the first Saturday of December every year. 

 

“Real trees have been an essential part of our Christmas celebrations for generations,” said Mr. Wilson. “By purchasing a tree from one of the many growers in our region, we support a vital industry which employs thousands of workers,” he added.    

 

There are dozens of growers in Simcoe-Grey who offer activities for people young and old who want to enjoy the season with family and friends while selecting a fresh cut-your-own or pre-cut tree.  Many of the farms offer activities ranging from visits with Santa and seasonal beverages, to horse- or tractor-drawn wagon rides.  

 

Some of the popular places you can visit in our area include: the Drysdale Tree Farm and Evergreen Store on County Rd. 56 in Egbert, Jingle Bell’s U-Cut on County Rd. 124 in Collingwood and Quesnel Forest Christmas Tree Farm, also on County Rd. 124.

 

Start the holiday season by purchasing a locally grown tree this upcoming Christmas Tree Day, Saturday, December 4th.

Simcoe.com article - Lack of child care and affordable housing biggest barriers to solving labour crisis: Simcoe-Grey MPP

(November 23, 2021) Simcoe.com is doing a great job in its series highlighting the challenges of trying to solve Ontario’s labour crisis.  Brad Pritchard of the Alliston Herald captured some of my thoughts in a recent interview.  Read his article below.

 

 

Lack of child care and affordable housing biggest barriers to solving labour crisis: Simcoe-Grey MPP

He wants task force to study labour crisis, come up with strategies, solutions

Brad Pritchard

Alliston Herald

Monday, November 22, 2021

Hardly a day goes by without someone talking about the challenges facing the labour market in Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson’s offices.

Wilson, who was first elected in 1990, said the issue started to become heavily debated about a decade into his career.

“In the last two decades, we’ve been discussing this issue ad nauseum,” he said.

Wilson said there are several factors making it difficult for companies to find and keep workers, and for job seekers to find decent positions.

He said the lack of child care and affordable housing are the biggest barriers.

While a $10-per-day child-care program has been promised by the federal government, the province has not signed on to the deal yet, due to a funding dispute.

Over the years, Wilson’s had conversations with manufacturing companies which have had to source workers who live up to two hours away. He said local health-care facilities and the tourism sector, particularly the resorts in the north end of the riding, also rely on employees from the Greater Toronto Area.

“We need the workers, and they have to live somewhere,” he said.

Mike MacEachern, executive director of FOCUS Employment Services in Alliston and Angus, said people are considering a number of factors when deciding to apply for a position: flexible hours, a predictable schedule, whether it is in-person or work-from home, and if the employer offers a safe place to work.

He said people also consider their long-term career goals and if they can grow in a position.

While offering higher pay can be a great incentive, he said it's not a guarantee.

"Letting the job seeker know as much detail about the job and the expectations up front has proven a successful strategy to find the right employee," he said.

Martin Kuzma, CEO of Nottawasaga Futures and NT Temps, said the issue is complex and it's hard to come up with a clear solution.

He said more immigration might help fill vacancies, and perhaps incentives need to be created to make it more attractive for people to work in their home communities, instead of commuting to the GTA.

“It all comes down to policies,” he said.

Wilson said other issues contributing to the labour shortage include low wages, lack of benefits and workers looking for flexible hours. He said challenges remain for getting young people interested in the skilled trades. He also cited people having education that doesn’t match the types of jobs available, and barriers for immigrants finding work.

He pointed out that many of these problems existed before the pandemic.

Wilson said more people will re-enter the workforce “out of necessity” now the government wage support programs have wound down. He said the minimum wage bump to $15 per hour, starting in January, might provide further incentive.

Wilson said the pandemic has prevented policy-makers from interacting with the unemployed, which is why he wants the province to create an all-party task force to study the current workforce, the post pandemic labour market, and propose solutions.

“I think the government has been behind, in its response to the pandemic, because we haven’t been able to reach these people to find out what makes them tick,” he said.

He said there are many programs out there that can help people find work and get into the skilled trades, but the government doesn’t do enough to promote them.

Wilson said local employment agencies, like FOCUS and TRACKS in Collingwood, “do a great job” of helping people access training programs and resources, but would benefit from more stable government support instead of “piecemeal” grants.

“Clearly what we’ve been doing isn’t good enough,” he said.

 

Simcoe-Grey Grocers Among Ontario’s Best; “Congratulations,” says MPP Wilson

Sobeys angus 2021 photo WEBSITEsobeys collingwood 2021 photo WEBSITENovember 12, 2021 – Sobeys Collingwood and Sobeys Angus are among 60 grocery stores in the province recognized this year for their innovative promotion of fresh Ontario food.  Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to visit both outlets to offer congratulations, and present them with Gold Foodland Ontario Retailer Award plaques. 

 

The Foodland Ontario Awards program is the province’s premier competition recognizing excellence in the display and promotion of Ontario foods.  It is co-sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs in partnership with a number of industry organizations.

 

“Grocers are key to ensuring that customers are aware of locally grown food in their stores and that they choose to purchase it,” said Mr. Wilson.  “Buying local food supports a strong agri-food sector that sustains us, boosts our economy, and helps create good jobs across our region,” he added. 

 

The Gold category – awarded to the Angus and Collingwood stores – is based on the number of non-produce items cross-merchandised with Ontario agricultural commodities, compatibility of the products, and appropriate signage. 

 

Presenting the awards, MPP Wilson said to the store employees, "Thank you for taking pride in building creative and innovative displays that encourage shoppers to take home the good things that grow in Ontario."

 

Ontario is home to almost 46,900 farms that grow more than 200 agricultural products. The sector contributes $47.7 billion to the province’s GDP and employs over 837,000 people – about one in every 10 jobs in Ontario.

 

Included in the photo in Collingwood is Pauline Mussleman, Darlene Ferguson, Tammy Austin, Anna Miller and Kevin Major. In the picture in Angus is Shirley Van Dusen, Christine Wodchis and Paul Jutras.

 

Congratulations Terry!

T Dowdall 2021 Swearing In   Jim Wilson.jfif WEBSITE(November 15, 2021) I was delighted to accept Terry Dowdall’s invitation last week to attend his swearing in as Member of Parliament for Simcoe-Grey.  We can all be confident that Terry will continue to advance and support the best interests of our riding in Canada’s 44th Parliament with the same passion and dignity he has demonstrated throughout his career in public service.  All the best Terry.

Remembering Those Who Serve With Courage

remembrance day collingwood 2021 2 WEBSITERemembrance Day 2021 Ravenna Photo 3 WEBSITEremembrance day 2021 Ravenna Photo 1.jpg WEBSITENovember 11, 2021 – Canadians set aside time on Remembrance Day to reflect on the brave men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country, during times of conflict and peace.  Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson today proudly joined members and veterans of the Armed Forces, and fellow citizens in Collingwood and Ravenna, to pay respects to those who have selflessly sacrificed to safeguard our freedom.

 

“We enjoy living in peace and safety because of those who serve, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Mr. Wilson.  “We owe them a debt of gratitude that cannot be repaid; we will always remember them.”

 

Lest we forget. 

 

 

New Tec Invites Ford, Elliott and Wilson to Visit Stevenson

(November 8, 2021) New Tecumseth Town Council is pressing Premier Ford and his Health Minister to join Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson for a tour of Stevenson Memorial Hospital to see for themselves the urgent need for its redevelopment.  Deputy Mayor Richard Norcross put forward the motion at a recent Council meeting, and Mayor Rick Milne has followed up with a written invitation to the provincial politicians.  

 

“We recognize the importance of the improvements and upgrades to the hospital as a top priority to support the continuing growth of the community,” said Mayor Milne, in his open letter to the Premier.  “The communities that Stevenson Memorial Hospital serves are rapidly growing with a projected growth of 73,000 to over 100,000 by 2031,” he added.

 

Stevenson has received $1.5 million in planning money to date.  The hospital foundation has raised 60 percent of the $43 million community component needed for the redevelopment project. 

 

MPP Wilson has raised the urgency of Stevenson’s renewal numerous times both inside and outside the Ontario Legislature.  His Private Members Resolution to support planning for a new facility received unanimous support in the legislature last November.  You can watch Jim debate the PMB here.  Most recently, during Question Period, he repeated his invitation to Health Minister Christine Elliott to see first-hand the need for a new modern facility.  She has said she would like to tour Stevenson “when time permits.”

 

“I will make myself available at any hour of the day, any day of the week, to tour with Premier Ford and Minister Elliott,” said Mr. Wilson.  “This project is long overdue,” he added. 

 

See Mayor Milne’s letter to Premier Ford, Minister Elliott and MPP Wilson here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2021 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review

(November 4, 2021) The Ford government has released its 2021 Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review, a plan to protect people’s health and Ontario’s economy.  Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy announced today the government will invest $30.2 billion over the next 10 years to build, expand and enhance hospitals in the province.  “This is a historic commitment to ensure people can get the care they need in communities,” said the Minister.

“This is an opportunity for our communities to step up their fight for hospital redevelopments in Collingwood and New Tecumseth,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson.  “I would urge my constituents to write Premier Ford and his Health and Finance Ministers to express their expectations that Collingwood General & Marine and Stevenson Memorial hospitals receive their fair share of the money committed to the health care system.” 

The government plan also includes more spaces for seniors, including 30-thousand new long-term care beds and refurbishment of another 28-thousand.  The long-term care sector can expect to see 225 new nurse practitioners, while overall the health-care system will be expanded by 5-thousand nurses and 8-thousand new personal support workers. 

The government also plans to support the Ontario’s tourism and hospitality workers with its new 20 percent Ontario Staycation Tax Credit. 

Investments in roads, highways and transit are promised, including the Bradford Bypass which will cut drive times in Simcoe and York region by up to 60 percent.  The government is also doubling the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund over five years to help small, rural and Northern municipalities. 

To encourage people to consider the trades, $90-million will be invested in a Skilled Trades strategy to break the stigma associated with the sector and remove obstacles that prevent young people from entering the trades.

“The government is making many of the necessary investments to protect the progress we’ve made as we recover from Covid,” said MPP Wilson.  “They are putting together a plan that is built on growth, not tax hikes or spending cuts.”

People can now wear Poppies in the workplace

poppy 2

November 2, 2021 – As Canadians we all owe a debt of gratitude to the veterans who have served our country.  The Ontario legislature today passed amendments to the Remembrance Week Act to ensure workers can pay tribute to veterans by enshrining the right to wear poppies in the workplace, recognizing the extraordinary courage and profound sacrifice of those who have given their lives in military service.

 

Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson introduced the Remembrance Week Act in 2015 as a Private Member’s bill to declare the week preceding Remembrance Day each year as Remembrance Week.  It was passed by all parties.  

 

“We live in a safe and prosperous country today because of the values our soldiers fought and died to protect,” said Mr. Wilson. “We must never forget that our fundamental freedoms of democracy and liberty are rooted in the sacrifice of those who serve.”

 

MPP Wilson strongly supports today’s amendments to the Remembrance Week Act.  “The right to wear a poppy in the workplace should be reflected in the employment policies and practices of all companies and organizations,” said Wilson.  “The poppy is a symbol of remembrance, respect and gratitude,” he added.  

 

Ontarians come together to proudly wear poppies and support veterans in their community through the Royal Canadian Legion’s annual poppy campaign. Funds raised from the campaign go towards providing grants for veterans in need by funding facilities and transition programs and providing supports for veterans and their spouses who are hospitalized.

 

Lest we forget.
