VIDEO: Wilson calls on the government to do more to support apple industry

(March 22, 2017) Yesterday, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson rose in the legislature to show his support for apple farmers in Ontario. He shared the results of a new study highlighting the economic benefit of the apple industry in our province.

“The apple industry generates $634 million in economic activity every year… It supports over 5,100 full time direct and indirect jobs,” listed Wilson. “These are impressive numbers. They’re impressive for not only my riding, which is apple rich in the north end, but many parts of Ontario.”

 

Wilson continued in the statement to explain why the government must do more to support this industry.

 

“Ontario apple farmers currently supply only 45 per cent of the Ontario fresh apple market. In fact, Ontario imports 80.6 million kilograms of apples for consumption every year. This means there is room for the Ontario industry to grow,” said Wilson. “I would ask the government to review the study and do what is needed to support this important industry.”

 

Wilson concluded by thanking local apple grower and past chair of the Ontario Apple Growers, Brian Gilroy, for providing him with the study and keeping him informed.

Government asked to address Grey-Bruce hospital concerns

(March 21, 2017) Today, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson and Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker asked the Liberal government what it will do to keep surgical services from leaving hospitals in Meaford, Markdale and Southampton.


Health Minister Eric Hoskins thanked the members for the questions and noted his ministry is working closely with local hospital officials on the issue.


"Of course, no decisions have been made," Hoskins said.


The minister added the government is always looking at ways it can "accommodate local realities and the challenges," faced by small community hospitals.


"I appreciate deeply just how important hospitals like Meaford Hospital are to the local community for a whole variety of reasons. We're working closely to see what we can do in this case," he said.


Hoskins concluded his remarks by saying he hopes MPP Walker will join him shortly for the ground-breaking of the new Markdale hospital (he stated Markham but later clarified he meant Markdale).


Both Wilson and Walker expressed appreciation to the minister for his response in the house and look forward to working with him to find a solution to the community's concerns.

Wynne Liberals’ partisan hydro ads in contempt of parliament: PCs

(March 20, 2017) Today, Ontario PC House Leader Jim Wilson charged that Kathleen Wynne's taxpayer-funded hydro ads are in contempt of parliament.

The self-congratulatory ads, which the auditor general has said are out of line, are running before legislation has been introduced, an alleged breach of parliamentary rules.

MPP Wilson informed the Speaker today that he will rise on a point of privilege arguing a case of contempt by the Ministry of Energy.

"What we've got here is a clear case of electioneering from the Wynne Liberals using taxpayer dollars," said Wilson.

The ads in question, touting the Wynne Liberals' new hydro scheme, appeared on both social media and radio markets across Ontario.

Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown has already written to Minister Liz Sandals asking her to immediately stop the ad campaign, release a detailed account of the budget for these advertisements, as well as which consulting firms received the lucrative contracts. These ads are potentially costing millions of dollars while families, businesses, hospitals, schools and other institutions suffer every day from affordable electricity bills.

"Neither MPPs nor the public even know what the new hydro scheme looks like, what it will cost, and who will get left behind," added Wilson. "Clearly, these advertisements serve no purpose other than to promote Kathleen Wynne's re-election."

"Based on past parliamentary rulings, we feel that we've got a very strong case. We look forward to hearing the ruling of the Speaker," said Wilson, noting that the Ministry of Energy has previously confirmed that legislation is needed to enact this new hydro scheme.

Liberal incompetence hurts us all

(March 13, 2017) For years now the Ontario PC Caucus has called on the Liberals to do something about our province's skyrocketing electricity rates.


On numerous occasions, our members have written the government and asked that they deal with the problem.


And dozens of times during Question Period, our Leader Patrick Brown and other members, myself included, have demanded the Liberals take action.


But each time we raised the issue the government stood firm.


The Liberals wouldn't admit that high electricity rates are hurting families, stifling economic growth, and killing jobs.


It was only recently, when polling revealed how tremendously unpopular the Liberals are, that they decided to act.


The fact is they are motivated by political survival, especially with a provincial election looming next year.


So, what's their plan to deal with the electricity fiasco?


They are slashing hydro rates by 17 per cent, starting in June.


Is this a good thing?


Of course it is.


Our party supports rate relief because Ontarians are suffering.


But let's be clear, this relief is necessary because Kathleen Wynne is obsessed with signing contracts for solar and wind power that we don't need.


In order to provide rate relief, the Liberals are refinancing the contracts they have with electricity generators.


Through the new arrangement, the province will pay the contracts over a longer period, in this case 30 years.


The Liberals say the cost of refinancing is an additional $25-billion, but we suspect the real number is billions more. And it is Ontario taxpayers who will pay these additional interest costs.


In an effort to determine the real cost of the Liberal plan, PC Leader Patrick Brown has written the province's budget watchdog and asked for a full costing.


Sadly, whatever the real number is, it will take Ontarians decades to pay off the refinancing.


People like to accuse our party of not having an electricity plan but that's not true.


For starters, we'd put an end to the signing of new wind and solar contracts. We'd also try to get Ontario out of the contracts that are already in the pipeline.


And, we'd give back municipal planning authority over so-called green energy proposals. That's something I tried to do in a Private Member's Resolution but the Liberals used their majority and shot it down.


Another thing we'd do is rein in exorbitant salaries at Hydro One and the Ontario Power Generation Corporation.


And let me be crystal clear: we'd stop the sale of Hydro One.


These are just some of our plans.


And very soon we'll be telling you more about what we have in mind.


Now, I want to shift gears and talk about another important announcement.


The other day the Liberals unveiled the details of their Ontario Small Cidery and Small Distillery Support Program.


According to a government news release, "the program will provide eligible businesses with support to grow and scale up their operations, including hiring more staff and purchasing new equipment."


The province says it will invest $4.9-million over three years for the program.


On sales, eligible cideries will receive up to 74 cents per litre and eligible distillers will receive up to $4.42 per litre, to a maximum of $220,000 per year, per producer.


This is good news.


It's not often in opposition that we get this type of response to our questions.


Just two weeks earlier, I asked the Minister of Finance why craft distillers in Simcoe-Grey and across the province are being penalized through much higher rates of taxation than craft brewers and wineries.


So, this latest announcement is helpful to our cideries and craft distillers. But the government needs to go another step further.


As I noted to the minister during my question, British Columbia tax regulations for cideries and small distillers should be implemented here.


B.C. allows the first 50,000 litres to be sold tax-free.


If B.C. can do it and support B.C. farmers, and B.C. products, why can't the same happen in Ontario?


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