13.       City Council refer the following motions to the City Manager for consideration in the development of his comprehensive transit plan and funding strategy:

"2.        City Council commit to a program of continuous and ongoing expansion of Toronto's rapid transit network using dedicated City revenue tools and partner funding, when the latter is available, as follows:

 

a.         the City will commit to perpetual funding for rapid transit expansion of up to $100 million annually from dedicated City revenue tools; and

 

b.         the City will solicit Provincial, Federal and private sector partners to leverage City funding to facilitate faster and more extensive expansion of the rapid transit network.

 

3.         City Council direct the City Manager to establish a Rapid Transit Planning Office with a mandate to assess Toronto's ongoing rapid transit needs, develop plans, lead and manage the ongoing expansion of rapid transit infrastructure in order to help reduce congestion and commuting times in Toronto; the Rapid Transit Planning Office to work co-operatively with City of Toronto's Finance, Planning and Transportation Divisions, the Toronto Transit Commission, Metrolinx, Infrastructure Ontario and Public Private Partnerships Canada as well as other potential partners to:

 

b.         assess and prioritize, on an ongoing basis, Toronto's existing and emerging rapid transit needs, including:

c.         develop and deliver future rapid transit expansion projects to address these priorities.

 

4.         City Council direct that the Rapid Transit Planning Office be funded initially with $10 million consisting of funds to be solicited from the Provincial and Federal governments and the City's contribution to be recovered from future parking levy revenues.

 

5.         City Council direct the City Manager to prepare, as part of the 2013 Operating Budget, a new revenue tool in the form of a non-residential parking levy that would generate up to $100 million per year on an ongoing basis and that all revenues from this levy be used to create a Rapid Transit Legacy Fund dedicated to building rapid transit infrastructure."

 

b.         by Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti:

 

                         "That City Council request the Federal Government to start negotiations immediately with the City of Toronto on the potential funding from the Public Private Partnership Fund for subways in the City of Toronto."

Point of Order

Speaker Nunziata advised Council of the following:

 

The City Manager has requested that Professor Eric Miller, the spokesperson for the Expert Advisory Panel, be permitted to answer questions via video conference.  Professor Miller is currently attending a conference in Peru but is available for questions until noon this morning.  As this arrangement is unusual, I wish to put the question to Council whether it wishes to ask questions of Professor Miller in this way.

 

Members should also be aware that the video conference technology may result in a slight time delay in Professor Miller receiving and answering Members' questions.

 

Councillor Minnan-Wong, rising on a point of order, asked the Speaker to advise whether Council's procedures permit questions by teleconference, whether this will set a precedent for future meetings and whether a two-thirds vote is required on this matter.

 

Speaker Nunziata accepted Councillor Minnan-Wong's point of order and asked the City Clerk and the City Manager to address Council about the request to permit Professor Miller to answer questions via video conference.

 

Speaker Nunziata further advised Council that a majority vote was required to permit questions via video conference.  The Speaker subsequently put the following procedural motion to a vote of Council:

 

That Members of Council be permitted to ask questions of Professor Eric Miller, Expert Advisory Panel Member, via video conference during the question period.
