Homes

Homes

We will develop an affordable housing strategy, referring to not only the poor, but to people who find their homes are no longer appropriate to their needs, particularly the aging, but who find that their incomes together with the proceeds from sale of their current homes, will is not adequate to relocate to more appropriate residence.

Charge Nestle and Bottle Water Distributers More

Water rates need to be updated for bottled water companies. Right now, companies like Nestlé pay just $2.25 to take a million litres of groundwater -- and they're allowed to withdraw unlimited amounts of precious water to sell at a huge profit.

The cruel irony is that the current water legislation is fairly appropriate when it comes to individuals' water use -- but corporations, once again, get off with paying virtually... more »

Provincial Housing Crisis

The Ontario Liberals should commit to building at least 350,000 rental, social,
co-op, and owner-purchase homes "through partnerships" over 10 years to
deal with Ontario's growing housing crisis which is seeing even those individuals who are gainfully employed full time - unable to afford to rent - much less own a home in many parts of the province.

Increasing the supply of housing is the best way to make housing more... more »

Wind Turbines

Cancel all Wind Contracts in rural areas that do not want them, especially Prince Edward County and Amherst Island. If you do not do this - and PEC can be cancelled this month with only a small penalty - you will lose the next election. Your best hope of re-election is to admit the mess hydro is in, cancel the expensive and unnecessary wind contracts and pledge to protect rural communities and reduce hydro costs. This... more »

Stop the plastic problem!

Enact legislation and regulations that limit or eliminate single-use plastic and ensure that even recyclable plastic does not end up in our beautiful lakes, rivers and oceans. Companies need to recognize and promote alternative products and we as consumers need to limit use of plastic that is destroying the mother earth!

Keep it in the community

I believe any not for profit services should build there own community before moving to another. Community doors should be free to access for any activity, service or event. Less entrepreneurs and students are taking advantage of connecting with their neighbors because of high cost for the use of community centers. These centers should be free access with a percentage based on earning. Many have great ideas however they... more »

Mandating Sustainability Criterion for any Bill

Sustainability is a common catch phrase in most government documents/policies/laws. But it does not mean necessarily that sustainability principles are adhered to. In essence, in most times, sustainability is used as a flashy word to prove good environmental intentions. Sustainability is a very important criterion that we have to apply to any bill/policy made by the government to ensure that the bill will achieve the... more »

Fixing Ontario Energy Surplus Problem

Currently the Province of Ontario spent over 6 billion sending the surplus of energy Ontario generates to the United States. Although the development and use of renewable sources of energy are important such as wind and solar. Given the increased cost of electricity and the surplus of energy Ontario has this problem needs to be fixed. Technology and infrastructure should be invested in and developed in order to help... more »

Buyback HW407 and Turn it a Toll-free

Great Golden Horseshoe accounts for about 70% of Ontario’s GDP, yet its transportation system lags behind which results in traffic congestion, lack of convenient mobility of people and goods - an important characteristic of a healthy and growing economy - and causes multi-billion dollars in lost productivity that’s projected to increase unless we act.

Of course, to enhance GGH transportation systems require working... more »

Establish A Global Fund for Climate Research and Development

Climate Change is a real threat to the globe, in the present and progressively worsening unless we act. However, the popular approach, low-carbon based economy, proposed by the Paris Treaty is quite failing and falling short of the task at hand. An alternative approach based on Research and Development is far more effective with no side effects, to the contrary this approach is stimulating to the economy as it opens doors... more »

SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS WITH GOVERNMENT PROCUREMENT

The Government of Ontario should be reinvesting tax dollars back into Ontario communities by supporting made-in-Ontario products and services when possible.

The Government of Ontario should be supporting jobs by engaging in strategic government procurement from small and medium sized businesses using community benefit agreements. The Government of Ontario should NOT be procuring goods and services from businesses in... more »

Extend the GO Train Service Line from Milton to Cambridge

The highway 401 corridor across the Cambridge area has become one of the most dangerous sections of the highway in Ontario. The TransCanada highway has been closed several times in recent months due to serious accidents. This is very dangerous for our citizens of this province and has a significant negative impact on our economy. An expanded two way GO Rail Service through Toronto, Mississauga and Cambridge would significantly... more »

Build the Highway 400-404 Link

South Simcoe County and northern York Region are rapidly growing, and traffic problems are only getting worse. We need to design, fund and build the long-awaited Highway 400-404 Link, formerly called the Bradford Bypass. This 16-kilometre highway would connect the Highway 404 extension north of Queensville Sideroad in East Gwillimbury to Highway 400 north of the 8th Line in Bradford.

This is a vital piece of infrastructure... more »
