VIDEO: Wilson demands long-term care beds for Simcoe-Grey

(November 21, 2017) – MPP Jim Wilson’s private members resolution calling on the provincial government to create more long-term care beds for local seniors was passed unanimously by all parties in the Ontario Legislature last Thursday.


Wilson said it is time for Simcoe-Grey to get more long-term care beds to reduce wait lists and he was pleased with the support from the other parties for his resolution.


“I did this because I want make sure my riding receives its fair share of the 5,000 beds the government recently announced,” he said. “It’s obvious the other parties realize long-term care is a major issue and more needs to be done.”


Wilson said the lack of available long-term care beds in the Simcoe-Grey is something his offices deal with on a regular basis.


“There is a growing need for long-term care services and not enough beds to meet these demands,” Wilson said. “Our population is aging. The wait list for beds has increased to 32,000 and there are now more people over the age of 65 than under the age of 15. The government can’t ignore this issue anymore.”


Wilson said waiting lists at local long-term care facilities continue to grow and Collingwood General and Marine Hospital and Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston are regularly admitting long-term care patients who can’t find a bed. Wilson said the Liberal government has done virtually nothing to fix the situation during its years in power.


“What has the government done to alleviate this issue in Simcoe-Grey? Since 2003, my riding has received a total of 18 new beds,” he said. “Just 18 beds since 2003, what more evidence do we need that more can be done?”


Wilson said the Liberal government’s recent announcement that it plans to create 5,000 new beds over four years and 30,000 beds over ten years is not nearly enough to solve the problem. The current waiting list across the province is 32,000 and is forecasted to grow to 50,000 by 2021.


Wilson thanked all parties in the Legislature for their support of his resolution and noted it is just the beginning of the process.


“Passing my resolution is just the first step. Now the government must act. This issue is not going away and needs to be addressed,” said Wilson.




VIDEO: Wilson thanks young volunteers for supporting local hospital

(November 16, 2017) Today, MPP Jim Wilson thanked local volunteers Irby and Amze Syed for their support of the re-development of Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston.


In a statement in the Legislature, Wilson thanked Irby and Amze, who are in Grade 11 and 12, for their efforts to gather signatures for his petition supporting of the hospital’s re-development.


“They have been out knocking on doors getting signatures on the petition in support of the re-development of the hospital,” said Wilson. “They understand the importance of the hospital’s re-development for the future of the community.”


Wilson said it is terrific to see young residents of Simcoe-Grey volunteering and getting involved with local issues.


“I want to salute them for their efforts and their amazing commitment to the local hospital and their community. Their passion and advocacy at such a young age will serve them well in future years,” he said.

Wilson joins effort to get college students back in class

VIDEO: Wilson pressures government for hospital re-development planning grants


(November 16, 2017) – MPP Jim Wilson continues to pressure the Wynne government to release planning grants for hospital re-development projects in Collingwood and Alliston.


 In June, the House unanimously passed Wilson's private members resolution calling for the immediate release of the money. Today, during question period, Wilson followed up on his resolution and demanded to know when the government would release the money to the hospitals.


“It’s now been more than six months since my resolution was passed and nothing has happened,” said Wilson. “When will this government follow through and release the money to allow these critically important projects to move forward to the next stages of planning?”


In response to Wilson’s question, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, the Honourable Dr. Eric Hoskins said a decision is on the horizon.


“We anticipate that a decision will be taken very soon. I think we’re all anxious to see some progress with regard to this hospital,” said Hoskins. “If the member opposite wanted to meet with ministry officials to get a better sense of where things are at, I would be happy to arrange that.”


Wilson said he is happy with the responses from Premier Kathleen Wynne and Hoskins and said he would take the Minister up on his offer to meet with representatives from the Ministry.


“I want to thank the Premier and Minister for their encouraging response in Question Period,” said Wilson. “I will be asking the Minister if officials from each hospital can accompany me to any meeting with Ministry officials.”

VIDEO: Wilson questions government again over the Ontario Tree Seed Plant closure

(November 15, 2017) Today in the Ontario Legislature, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson questioned the Wynne government for a second time over their decision to close the Ontario Tree Seed Plant in Angus. The decision was made without consultation within the community or with industry experts.


“…Those working in the industry urged the government to delay the closure for 3 to 5 years to allow them time to transition. Despite this advice, the Ministry is going ahead with their closure date in nine months’ time,” said Wilson. 


“Will the Minister commit to working with these growers and other experts to find a solution that won’t destroy yet another thriving industry in our province?” he continued.


The Minister wasn’t receptive to the concerns Wilson was raising. In fact, she read aloud the same response she gave a month ago when questioned on the issue.


Wilson went on to point out the repercussions and infeasibility of what the Ministry is proposing.


“The Minister is assuming that the private sector will immediately take over. That means, in nine months, the private sector has to build infrastructure, acquire an array of specialized equipment, hire and train technical staff to run the facility and all with a price tag of over $1 million,” said Wilson.


Growers in my riding tell me this isn’t possible… they are calling the Ministry’s plan both unreasonable and irresponsible,” he continued.


Wilson concluded by pointing out that the closure will cause irreparable harm across the province. He also asked the government to review the proposal submitted by the Ontario Tree Seed Coalition on October 13th.


Wilson would like to thank Fred Sommerville and Dave Harbec from Sommerville Nurseries for providing the background material for today’s question.




VIDEO: Wilson honours veterans in Remembrance Day greeting

(November 10, 2017) MPP Jim Wilson expressed his gratitude to Canadian veterans and troops in his Remembrance Day greeting.

Here is the full text of his greeting:


“As your Member of Provincial Parliament for the riding of Simcoe-Grey, I am truly honoured to extend my deep appreciation in recognition of our many veterans and troops on this Remembrance Day.


For our entire history as a country, brave men and women of the military have sacrificed so our country can prevail and be free. It is because of them we live in one of the safest countries in the world with an amazing standard of living.

Today we celebrate the bravery and heroism of the men and women of our Armed Forces. We honour our veterans who served around the world in the cause of freedom. Our veterans made a brave choice. Crossed the ocean, confront the enemy and free nations from tyranny.

This is a debt that can never adequately be repaid and on November 11, we remember.”

Jim at Beeton dog park web version

(October 27, 2017) – MPP Jim Wilson helped cut the ribbon to officially open the new leash-free dog park in Beeton on Thursday afternoon.


The new park is a dedicated space for dogs to safely run free of their leashes and to socialize with other animals. The park features double gates to prevent accidental escapes and separate areas for large and small dogs.


“This park is an excellent addition to Beeton and will be enjoyed by pet owners and their canine friends,” said Wilson. “I want to congratulate New Tecumseth council and staff for opening this park, which will be well-used by local residents.”
