January 30, 2019 at 10:09 a.m. - Speaker Nunziata advised Council of the following:

 

Members, I will now review the Order Paper.

 

We have 1 deferred item on this agenda:

 

New Business Item CC2.1 on 50 to 52 Finch Avenue East - Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, and Site Plan Applications - Request for Direction Regarding a Local Planning Appeal Tribunal Hearing.

 

The Mayor has designated the following Items as his Key Matters for this meeting:

 

The first Key Matter will be Item EX1.1 headed "Implementing the 'Housing Now' Initiative". 

 

The Mayor's second Key Matter is Item IE1.5, headed "Richmond Street and Adelaide Street Cycle Tracks".  

 

These will be our first and second Items of business today.

 

I also propose that the following Items be considered together:

 

PH1.2 on Declaring Toronto’s Homelessness and Housing Crisis a State of Emergency with Member Motion 2.9 on Expanding Supportive Housing in Toronto.  Council will need to waive referral on the Member Motion first.

 

Item CC2.5 with Item CC2.6.  Both Items relate to 10 St. Mary Street, 81 to 85 St. Nicholas Street and 710 to 718 Yonge Street - Local Planning Appeal Tribunal Appeal - Request for Direction.

                  

Notices of Motions are scheduled to be dealt with at 2 p.m. tomorrow only if the Mayor's Key Matters have been completed.

 

I propose that City Council set a time for a closed session, if required, later in the meeting.

 

The City Clerk has noted the Items that Members wish to hold.

 

I will now go through the Items listed on the Order Paper to take additional holds.  I will recognize requests to make matters urgent and time specific after I go through the Items for additional holds. 

 

Once the Order Paper has been approved by Council, any change will need a two-thirds vote.

Point of Order by Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam

Councillor Wong-Tam, rising on a Point of Order, stated that she wished Council to vote separately on the three recommendations in her motion 1.


Point of Order by Mayor John Tory

Mayor Tory, rising on a Point of Order, stated that he wished Council to sub-divide Part 3 and vote separately on parts a, b and c in motion 1 by Councillor Wong-Tam.

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Points of Order and ruled that Council would vote on the parts of motion 1 by Councillor Wong-Tam separately.


Point of Order by Mayor John Tory

Mayor Tory, rising on a Point of Order, stated that, as he could not support the preamble of 3 but could have supported parts a, b and c, the way the vote was conducted on Part 3a was not what he had asked for.

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that the motion would have required an amendment first.


Point of Order by Deputy Mayor Denzil Minnan-Wong

Deputy Mayor Minnan-Wong, rising on a Point of Order, stated that as the preamble to Part 3 of motion 1 by Councillor Wong-Tam had lost, how could the rest of Part 3 be voted on, as it is irrelevant.

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that, as Parts 3 and 3a were voted on as one and lost, Parts b and c were redundant.


Point of Order by Councillor Gord Perks

Councillor Perks, rising on a Point of Order, stated that he was following the Speaker's voting instructions and understood that the preamble to Part 3 of motion 1 by Councillor Wong-Tam would be voted on with each of 3a, 3b and 3c. Councillor Perks further stated that the Speaker had, retroactively after he voted, changed the interpretation of the Mayor's request, and his voting rights were affected.

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that, when the request was made to separate parts a, b, and c, that's what was done, but it was an error and it should not have been voted on in that way.


Point of Order by Councillor Gord Perks

Councillor Perks, rising on a Point of Order, stated that as an error had been made on how to vote, Council should go back and vote on the motion with the correct instructions.

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata (Upheld)
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that she had already made her ruling on this matter.
