Helping Small Rural Communities Protect Drinking Water

November 1, 2013

Ontario Supports Action to Safeguard Drinking Water Sources

Ontario is strengthening the protection of local drinking water sources in small, rural municipalities.Almost 200 municipalities will receive support to help carry out source water protection plans. These plans, which are developed locally, are an important part of Ontario’s drinking water safety net and protect existing and future sources of drinking water.

Drinking water source protection planning was a recommendation of the O’Connor inquiry into the Walkerton tragedy. Seven people died and more than 2,000 became sick after consuming contaminated drinking water in the Town of Walkerton, in 2000.

Protecting our drinking water will enhance the quality of life for Ontario families and support sustainable communities now and into the future. This is part of the government’s plan to invest in people, invest in infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • 189 municipalities are eligible for grants ranging from $18,000 to $100,000. An additional incentive of up to $15,000 is available to municipalities that work together to implement source protection plans.
  • The province has already provided over $240 million for source protection planning.
  • There are 38 source protection areas, grouped into 19 regions. Each region developed a source protection plan.
  • Drinking water source protection planning was a recommendation of the Walkerton Inquiry.

QUOTES

“Guarding against threats to our drinking water supplies is the purpose of source protection. With the help of our many partners on local Source Protection Committees, we are completing source-to-tap drinking water protection.”
— Jim Bradley, Minister of Environment

QUICK FACTS

  • The business forum is part of the Ontario government’s $42 million investment over three years in the Promotion, Celebration and Legacy Strategy for the Games.

  • The Games are promoting volunteerism by training up to 20,000 people and providing them with new skills that will open doors to jobs and growth.
  • Maximizing the province’s trade opportunities in emerging markets like South America is part ofOntario’s Going Global Strategy.

Bill to Protect Wireless Customers Passes Final Vote

October 30, 2013

Ontario Supporting Clear Contracts for Cell Phone Users

Ontario is moving forward to protect wireless and cell phone customers with today’s passage of the Wireless Services Agreements Act.

The new legislation will provide consumers with clear information and fewer surprises when they enter into cell phone and wireless services contracts by Spring 2014. It will protect wireless customers by:

  • Requiring contracts to be written in plain language
  • Ensuring contracts clearly outline which services come with the basic fee, and which would result in extra charges
  • Requiring providers to get customer consent before amending, renewing or extending a fixed-term contract
  • Enforcing a cap on cancellation fees, making it less expensive for consumers to walk away from fixed-term contracts

Protecting Ontario consumers is part of the government’s plan to ensure a fair marketplace and help people in their everyday lives. This is part of the Ontario government’s economic plan to invest in people, invest in infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • Approximately eight out of 10 Ontario families have a wireless services agreement.
  • The legislation includes all-inclusive pricing requirements that will, if proclaimed, inform consumers of the annual cost of a fixed-term cell phone and wireless services contract.
  • Overall complaints to the federal Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services have more than tripled over the past four years.
  • A survey by OpenMedia.ca compiled the opinions and complaints of 2,800 cell phone users who called for an overhaul of the cell phone market.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“We are protecting Ontario cell phone users by ensuring they know their rights and are better informed. When this bill comes into force, it will give consumers what they have been asking for — clear cell phone and wireless contracts, more choices, and clarity on prices. I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to pass this bill that protects and empowers Ontario consumers”

Creating Cleaner Air in Ontario

October 23, 2013

Province on Track to Eliminate Coal-Fired Generation

Ontario is one step closer to being the first jurisdiction in North America to eliminate coal as a source of electricity.

Today, the province marked the end of burning coal at the Lambton Generating Station. This leaves Nanticoke Generating Station as the last operating coal-fired facility in Southern Ontario, which is slated to stop burning coal at the end of 2013.

Ontario has committed to end coal generation by the end of 2014. Closing these plants one year ahead of schedule will save ratepayers $95 million from reduced maintenance and project costs. A coal-free energy mix will also lead to a significant reduction in harmful emissions, cleaner air and a healthier environment.

Eliminating coal-fired generation and protecting the environment while providing clean, reliable and affordable power is part of the government’s plan to invest in people, build strong infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate across Ontario.

QUICK FACTS

  • The closure of the Lambton and Nanticoke coal plants comes as Ontario moves toward implementing a smarter electricity grid, increasing efficiencies within the electricity system, introducing strong conservation efforts and committing to cleaner energy sources.
  • Replacing coal with cleaner generation, renewables and conservation will help ease strain on the health care system by eliminating up to 30 megatonnes of emissions that contribute to illness and premature death.
  • According to a 2005 independent study, “Cost Benefit Analysis: Replacing Ontario’s Coal-Fired Electricity Generation,” the cost of coal generation was approximately $4.4 billion annually when health, environmental, and financial costs were taken into consideration.
  • Since 2003, Ontario has cut its use of coal by nearly 90 per cent.
  • By the end of 2013, Ontario will have shut down 17 of 19 coal-fired units and all of them will be shut down by the end of 2014.

QUOTES

“Ontario is committed to building a clean, modern reliable electricity system to replace dirty coal fired generation. Getting off coal is the single largest climate change initiative being undertaken in North America, equivalent to taking up to seven million cars off the road. This initiative will leave a healthier environment, cleaner air for our children and grandchildren.”
— Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Energy
“Eliminating coal generation is helping keep Ontarians healthy and also lessening the impact on our health care system. Thanks to our collective efforts to eliminate coal we have prevented premature deaths, avoided unnecessary hospital admissions, and saved precious health care dollars that can be re-invested elsewhere to benefit patients.”
— Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care

Ontario Tree Seed Plant Celebrates 90 Years of Growth

October 22, 2013

Ontario Government Supporting the Economy, Protecting the Environment

The Ontario Tree Seed Plant is celebrating 90 years of preserving biodiversity, protecting the environment and supporting the forest products and wood manufacturing sectors.

The facility uses innovative technology to extract, clean, test, and store billions of seeds each year that support the growth of trees in Ontario forests, woodlots, parks, schoolyards, and even your own back yard.

Through 90 years of experience, Ontario’s Tree Seed Plant is recognized as a world leader in tree seed collection. The facility supplies seed from 50 native trees to nursery operations, forestry companies and the public. By supporting tree planting, the facility helps Ontario adapt to the effects of climate change, restores endangered tree species and supports tens of thousands of jobs in the forest industry.

Planting trees and protecting the environment enhances the quality of life for Ontario families and ensures a dynamic, green economy for future generations. This is part of the government’s plan to invest in people, invest in infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • Located in Angus, the Ontario Tree Seed Plant’s seed bank stores billions of tree seeds – from the tiny seeds of the white pine to large butternut seeds, an endangered species.
  • The forest products and wood manufacturing sectors support more than 150,000 jobs in over 260 communities across the province.
  • Open cones, once a waste product, are now sold to potpourri and decorative markets.
  • Plant a tree to help fight climate change and send us a photo to hashtag #PlantNativeTrees.

“The seeds cultivated at the Ontario Tree Seed Plant in Angus are a key component in the province’s plan for sustainable forest management. This important facility processes and stores seeds that will create tomorrow’s forests. Here today you can see the seeds of the endangered butternut tree, which our government is actively working to recover, or the white pine, which is used to build the homes we live in.”
— David Orazietti, Minister of Natural Resources
“Seed management is the foundation of any successful forest restoration program. With the help of the Ontario Tree Seed Plant, high-quality, locally adapted seed is available to ensure planting projects thrive. This partnership has facilitated strategic seed collection and planning, and it ensures that nursery stock is produced from seed matched to appropriate sites and adapted to local climate.”

GREENWICH, CT, Nov. 11, 2013 /CNW/ – FrontFour Capital Group LLC (“FrontFour”) announced its submission of a financing offer to the board of Renegade Petroleum Ltd. (“Renegade”, or the “Company”) (“RPL-V; RPTTF-O”). FrontFour is concerned that the board of Renegade may be considering a private placement at or below the current market price.  FrontFour believes that Renegade’s shares trade at a significant discount to net asset value; therefore, an equity financing at or below current market prices would be excessively dilutive and a breach of the board’s fiduciary duties. FrontFour has delivered a letter to the board of Renegade reminding them of their fiduciary obligations to all shareholders and advising that FrontFour would be willing, subject to mutual agreement as to terms and satisfactory confirmatory due diligence, to backstop a significant financing at prices above current levels.

Ontario To Contribute $1 million to Relief Efforts in the Philippines

November 11, 2013

As the Philippines recovers from the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan, Premier Kathleen Wynne released the following statement announcing Ontario’s support for relief efforts.

“Like so many people around the world, I have watched the unfolding tragedy in the Philippines with great sorrow. To those who have lost or are still waiting to hear from loved ones, I want you to know our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

As the extent of the devastation becomes apparent, it is also clear that the people of the Philippines need our help to recover in the weeks and months ahead.

That’s why the Ontario Government will contribute $1 million to the Red Cross to help their relief efforts. And in the days to come, we will prepare to provide other supports as requested. Ontario has a long, proud history of coming to the aid of people around the world in times of disaster and we are ready to do so again.

Here at home, so many people – particularly those with friends and family in the Philippines – have come together to see what they can do to help. I want to thank the many community and church groups for their efforts.

I also want to encourage everyone to contribute to the efforts of the Red Cross with their personal donations.”

Ontario Launches Open Government

October 21, 2013

Government Committed to Engagement, Accessibility and Welcoming New Ideas

Premier Kathleen Wynne announced Ontario’s new Open Government initiative today, which will give the people of Ontario a more transparent and accessible government, and more opportunities to access information and engage with the government on things that matter to them.

A group of academic, business and community leaders will form an Open Government Engagement Team, which will be chaired by Don Lenihan. They will gather feedback from people across the province and report back to the government in spring, 2014.

The focus will be on three areas: open dialogue, so it is easier for people to connect and interact with government through new tools and technologies; open data, so people can access data to solve everyday problems and come up with new ideas; open information, which means creating even more transparency by sharing more information.

The Open Government initiative is part of the government’s vision for One Ontario, where we will work together to build a successful, compassionate and united province where everyone has the opportunity to connect, contribute and enjoy a high quality of life.

QUICK FACTS

  • People can visit Ontario.ca/open to see what the government is working on and learn how to get involved.
  • The government has launched an Open Data website at Ontario.ca/opendata as a first step towards unlocking the potential of valuable data.
  • The province also has an open data common licence which makes it easier for data users to collaborate and combine data from participating jurisdictions under the same common rules.

QUOTES

“Our Open Government initiative will help create the transparent, accessible government the people of Ontario deserve. This is part of our vision for One Ontario, where every voice counts.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario
“Putting the people of Ontario first and serving them better is our priority, and our initiative will make sure we’re using new ways to hear every voice and provide access to data and information when and where people want it.”
— John Milloy, Minister of Government Services

Helping Communities Restore Fish and Wildlife Habitats

October 21, 2013

Ontario Government Protecting the Environment

Ontario is helping a youth environmental group protect animals, plants, forests and wetlands in their community.With support from the Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program (LSHRP), Earth Rangerswill turn two fields infested with invasive plants into tall grass prairie meadows with a wetland area.

This is among 24 projects across the province this year that will receive support from Ontario to help restore and rehabilitate more than 1,024 hectares of important habitat and protect biodiversity in Ontario.

Protecting the environment will enhance the quality of life for Ontario families and ensure a dynamic, green economy for future generations. This is part of the government’s plan to invest in people, invest in infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • The Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program provides $300,000 per year to community groups for habitat restoration and land stewardship projects. Applicants are required to match funding equal to their funding request. This means at least $300,000 in additional support will be leveraged within communities to support these projects.
  • Ontario is home to more than 30,000 species, all of which are important to the biological, social and economic vitality of the province.

QUOTES

“Ontario is committed to protecting and sustaining our fish and wildlife. This program supports communities and organizations in their conservation and habitat restoration activities to help maintain healthy and sustainable habitats across the province. I am proud of the collective efforts of every person and group that has come together to safeguard and nurture our natural ecosystem and biodiversity.”
— David Orazietti, Minister of Natural Resources
“This program will ensure that adequate support is given to those community-based programs that go the extra mile to maintain and restore Ontario’s natural ecosystems. It confirms that our government is committed to protecting the environment and securing a bright and sustainable future for our province.”
— Steven Del Duca, MPP Vaughan
“The Earth Rangers Centre is one of the most sustainable buildings in Canada, so it is important to us that the site surrounding the building is just as environmentally sound. Project iRestore is working to restore 30 acres of what was primarily invasive plant species into native tall grass prairie habitat. Funding from this new program will ensure we can continue this important work and see more biodiversity return to this area.”
— Peter Kendall, Executive Director, Earth Rangers
“Wetlands are an essential component of a sustainable, healthy ecosystem. Partnerships like the Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program are vital to helping Ducks Unlimited Canada achieve our goals to protect and restore Ontario’s wetlands. Together, we are conserving Ontario’s biodiversity.”

The Senior Achievement Awards are the highest provincial honour for seniors over 65.

Recognizing the valuable contributions Ontario’s seniors make is part of the Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors and supports the government’s efforts to work together as One Ontario, building a successful, compassionate and united province where everyone has the opportunity to connect, contribute and enjoy a high quality of life.

QUICK FACTS

  • Since 1986, the Senior Achievement Awards have recognized outstanding seniors who have made significant contributions to their communities.
  • According to the Volunteering and Older Adults 2013 report, baby boomers and senior adults contributed more than 1 billion volunteer hours in 2010.

New Rules for Commercial Contract Negotiation

October 18, 2013

Premier Wynne Issues Directive to Promote Openness, Transparency

The Ontario government will put in place new rules that clearly define the roles and responsibilities of political staff in all future commercial transactions.

Through a Premier’s memo delivered to ministers earlier today, a new formal directive will be created and implemented to provide clear distinctions between the advisory role of political staff and the responsibilities of civil servants when negotiating contracts with third parties.

The new rules build upon existing processes and procedures in place for interactions with third parties doing business with the government.  They also respond to public expectations that decisions on commercial contracts will be made in a manner that optimizes value and serves the best interests of the people of Ontario.

The new rules recognize that negotiations on commercial contracts must be conducted through appropriate and approved methods.  They will clearly define the appropriate points of contact on any issues related to a commercial contract.
