SECOND  DAY  DEUXIEME  JOUR 


3:00  P.M.  15  H 

The  members  having  assembled: - 

His  Honour  the  Lieutenant  Governor  entered  the  Chamber  and  took  his  seat  upon  the  Throne. 

The  Speaker  addressed  His  Honour  as  follows:- 

"May  it  please  Your  Honour, 

The  Legislative  Assembly  has  elected  me  as  their  Speaker,  though  I  am  but  little  able  to  fulfill  the 

important  duties  thus  assigned  to  me. 


8 November  20,  2003 

If,  in  the  performance  of  those  duties,  I  should  at  any  time  fall  into  error,  I  pray  that  the  fault  may  be 
imputed  to  me  and  not  to  the  Assembly  whose  servant  I  am,  and  who,  through  me,  the  better  to  enable 
them  to  discharge  their  duty  to  their  Queen  and  Country,  hereby  claim  all  their  undoubted  rights  and 
privileges,  especially  that  they  have  freedom  of  speech  in  their  debates,  access  to  your  person  at  all 
seasonable  times,  and  that  their  proceedings  may  receive  from  you  the  most  favourable  consideration." 

The  Government  House  Leader  said:- 

"Speaker,  I  am  commanded  by  His  Honour  the  Lieutenant  Governor  to  declare  to  you  that  he  freely 
confides  in  the  duty  and  attachment  of  the  Assembly  to  Her  Majesty's  Person  and  Government  and,  not 
doubting  that  the  proceedings  will  be  conducted  with  wisdom,  temperance  and  prudence,  he  grants  and 
upon  all  occasions  will  recognize  and  allow  the  constitutional  privileges. 

I  am  commanded  also  to  assure  you  that  the  Assembly  shall  have  ready  access  to  His  Honour  upon  all 
suitable  occasions,  and  that  their  proceedings,  as  well  as  your  words  and  actions,  will  constantly  receive 
from  him  the  most  favourable  construction.  " 


His  Honour  the  Lieutenant  Governor  was  pleased  to  open  the  First  Session  of  the  Thirty-eighth 
Parliament  by  making  the  following  gracious  speech:  - 

I.  THE  CHALLENGE  WE  FACE  TOGETHER 

Mr.  Speaker,  members  of  the  Legislative  Assembly,  citizens  of  Ontario: 

Canada  lists  among  its  hallmarks  peace,  order  and  good  government. 

Ontario  has  a  parliamentary  tradition  that  allows  for  a  peaceful  and  orderly  transition  from  an  old 
government  to  a  new  one. 

Following  the  recent  election,  I  asked  Dalton  McGuinty  to  form  the  Government  of  Ontario. 

I  then  presided  over  the  swearing-in  of  the  new  Premier  and  the  Executive  Council. 

Today,  it  is  my  privilege  as  Her  Majesty's  representative  to  deliver  this  new  government's  first  Speech 
from  the  Throne. 

Your  new  government  looks  to  the  future  with  high  hopes. 

It  knows  what  Ontarians  can  do  because  it  has  seen  what  Ontarians  have  done. 

There  have  been  pulls  on  the  seams  in  our  social  fabric  —  but  this  fabric  has  refused  to  tear. 

There  have  been  challenges  to  the  health  of  our  economy  —  but  this  economy  remains  strong. 

There  have  been  those  who  would  dismiss  our  values  as  out  of  date  —  but  these  values  have  proven 
timeless. 

Ontarians  can  do  anything,  when  they  work,  and  dream,  and  build  together. 

What  they  ask  of  their  government  is  honesty,  responsibility,  hard  work,  innovation,  and  a  genuine 
commitment  to  the  future. 

Your  new  government  is  honest  enough  to  tell  you  about  the  challenges  we  face. 

So  here  are  the  facts:  Ontario  faces  a  major  problem,  one  that  stands  in  the  way  of  a  better  future  for  all  of 
us. 

And  it's  urgent  that  we  fix  it. 

It  threatens  the  important  public  services  we  have  now,  and  our  opportunity  to  improve  them  in  the  future. 

This  isn't  lofty  rhetoric.  This  is  down-to-earth  reality. 


November  20,  2003 


Your  new  government  asked  former  Provincial  Auditor  Erik  Peters  to  give  you  the  straight  goods  on 
Ontario's  budgetary  position. 

He  reported  that  Ontario  faces  a  $5.6  billion  inherited  deficit. 

Irresponsible  tax  cuts  have  meant  that,  since  the  year  2000,  program  spending  has  grown  more  than  ten 
times  faster  than  tax  revenue. 

Ontario's  economy  is  strong,  but  the  provincial  government's  finances  are  weak,  and  that  threatens  the 
public  services  we  all  need  to  keep  our  economy  strong. 

The  state  of  the  province's  finances  is  simply  not  sustainable  or  affordable  —  not  for  Ontario  families, 
and  certainly  not  for  their  children  and  grandchildren. 

Your  new  government  will  take  this  challenge  on,  working  with  you. 

It  will  not  paper  over  this  problem  with  money  it  does  not  have. 

It  will  not  try  to  make  it  disappear  with  accounting  tricks. 

And  it  will  never  sit  on  its  hands  and  do  nothing. 

If  it  did  nothing,  the  $5.6  billion  inherited  deficit  would  grow  to  $7.7  billion  next  year,  and  nearly  $8.6 
billion  in  2007. 

That's  not  an  option,  not  when  the  amount  Ontario  already  spends  on  servicing  the  provincial  debt  — 
$8.7  billion  —  is  almost  as  much  as  we  spend  on  our  schools. 

That's  not  an  option,  when  doing  nothing  would  mean  less  and  less  support  for  the  public  services 
Ontarians  depend  on. 

Your  new  government  was  elected  to  improve  our  health  care  and  our  schools,  to  build  stronger 
communities  and  an  even  stronger  economy. 

And  it  will  deliver  real,  positive  change  in  all  of  these  areas. 

It  will  do  so  relentlessly,  but  responsibly. 

The  first  improvements  it  makes  will  make  a  real  difference.  But  they  will  be  affordable  and  they  will  be 
responsible. 

A  contractor  hired  to  add  rooms  to  the  second  floor  of  your  house  would  be  negligent  if  he  discovered  a 
fire  in  the  basement  —  and  failed  to  put  it  out. 

A  government  elected  to  improve  health  care  and  education  would  be  negligent  if  it  discovered  a  deficit 
large  enough  to  threaten  the  hospitals  and  schools  we  have  now  —  and  chose  to  ignore  it. 

Your  new  government  chooses  to  tackle  this  problem  for  the  right  reasons  —  not  so  it  can  hand  out  tax 
cuts  to  a  few,  but  so  it  can  provide  opportunity  for  all  by  preserving  and  then  improving  Ontario's 
important  public  services. 

II.  DECISIVE  ACTION  ON  THE  DEFICIT  —  ENGAGING  ONTARIANS 

In  this  session,  this  Legislature  will  be  asked  to  take  immediate  action  on  the  inherited  $5.6  billion  deficit. 

Our  corporate  taxes  are  already  competitive,  so  your  new  government  made  a  commitment  to  roll  back 
the  latest  portion  of  the  tax  cut  for  corporations. 

Legislation  will  be  introduced  to  keep  that  commitment. 

Ontario  families  have  told  your  new  government  not  to  reduce  their  taxes  at  this  time,  because  it  cannot 
afford  tax  cuts  without  adding  to  the  deficit  and  threatening  public  services. 

So  this  new  government  made  a  commitment  to  maintain  personal  income  tax  rates  at  the  current  level. 

Legislation  will  be  introduced  to  keep  that  commitment. 


10 November  20,  2003 

Our  seniors  want  good  schools  for  their  grandchildren,  so  this  new  government  made  a  commitment  to 
eliminate  the  seniors'  education  tax  credit. 

Legislation  will  be  introduced  to  keep  that  commitment. 

Our  public  schools  have  fallen  into  disrepair  and  discord,  and  require  new  resources  and  a  fresh  approach, 
so  this  new  government  made  a  commitment  to  cancel  the  tax  credit  for  private  schools. 

Legislation  will  be  introduced  to  keep  that  commitment. 

Ontarians  want  their  hard-earned  tax  dollars  used  to  serve  them  —  not  spin  them. 

So  your  new  government  made  a  commitment  to  eliminate  the  waste  of  taxpayers'  dollars  on  partisan, 
political  advertising. 

Legislation  will  be  introduced  to  keep  that  commitment. 

Ontarians  want  everyone  to  do  their  part,  so  this  new  government  made  a  commitment  to  ensure 
corporations  that  have  not  been  paying  their  taxes  start  paying  their  fair  share. 

That  commitment  will  be  kept.  , 

Ontarians  want  the  government  to  spend  their  tax  dollars  wisely,  so  this  government  made  a  commitment 
to  reduce  what  the  Provincial  Auditor  has  called  an  over-reliance  on  highly  paid  consultants. 

That  commitment  will  be  kept. 

Ontarians  want  the  government  to  live  within  its  means,  so  your  new  government  made  a  commitment  to 
have  a  responsible  approach  to  the  province's  finances,  for  a  change. 

In  the  face  of  what  we  now  know  is  a  $5.6  billion  inherited  deficit,  the  current  electricity  price  freeze  is 
neither  sustainable  nor  responsible. 

It  keeps  prices  artificially  low  and  makes  Ontarians  pay  the  difference.  It  threatens  our  ability  to  improve 
our  education  and  health  care. 

Your  new  government  will  present  an  electricity  pricing  plan  that  better  reflects  the  true  cost  of  electricity 
—  and  the  true  state  of  Ontario's  finances  —  while  giving  Ontarians  an  incentive  to  conserve. 

Taken  together,  these  measures  will  take  your  new  government  a  long  way  towards  keeping  one  of  its 
core  commitments:  achieving  a  truly  balanced  budget. 

But  the  job  will  not  be  done,  and  it  can  only  be  completed  with  the  help  of  millions  of  Ontarians. 

The  new  year  will  see  this  new  government  engage  Ontarians  in  a  new  dialogue. 

Your  new  government  will  ask  Ontarians  to  help  write  next  spring's  Budget,  by  putting  before  them  the 
real  choices  facing  this  province. 

It  will  put  before  the  public  ideas  that  are  big  and  bold  and  even  controversial. 

Ontarians  understand  that  you  cannot  tackle  a  big  problem  by  tinkering  around  its  edges,  and  you  can't 
deliver  real,  positive  change  by  doing  things  the  same,  old  way. 

We  need  to  change  how  government  works  so  it  works  for  Ontarians  in  a  way  that's  responsible, 
affordable,  and  sustainable. 

This  is  not  exactly  the  job  your  new  government  applied  for,  but  it  is  the  job  it  has  been  given  to  do. 

And  it  will  get  the  job  done. 

It  will  get  the  job  done  because  it's  the  right  thing  to  do:  this  year's  deficit  alone  would  cost  Ontarians  an 
additional  $280  million  in  additional  interest  payments. 

By  the  end  of  year  four  of  this  mandate,  that  number  would  grow  to  $1.1  billion  —  enough  to  pay  for 
15,000  nurses,  16,000  teachers,  or  1,000  MRIs. 


November 20,  2003  \\ 

Your  new  government  will  get  the  job  done  so  that  it  can  provide  more  nurses,  teachers,  and  MRls  for 
Ontario  families  —  instead  of  additional  interest  payments  for  Ontario's  creditors. 

Your  new  government  remains  determined  to  deliver  real,  positive  change  by  improving  the  public 
services  Ontarians  depend  on. 

It  is  equally  resolute  that  it  must  first  secure  the  fiscal  foundation  upon  which  those  services  are  built. 

It  is  a  foundation  we  must  secure  together,  in  the  public  interest. 

Your  new  government  will  ask  its  partners  in  health  care,  education,  and  the  broader  public  sector  to 
temper  their  requests  for  more  with  the  realization  that  what  we  have  now  is  at  risk. 

If  Ontarians  work  together  today,  in  a  responsible  way,  we  can  build  an  even  brighter  future  tomorrow. 

Your  new  government  knows  we  can  only  achieve  great  things  when  we  work,  and  dream,  and  build 
together,  for  a  change. 

And  it  is  confident  that  Ontarians  will  respond  to  the  challenge  before  us. 

III.  DELIVERING  REAL,  POSITIVE  CHANGE 

This  challenge  will  affect  the  pace  of  change. 

But  your  new  government  will  make  change  happen. 

That  change  has  already  started,  and  it  will  continue  in  this  session  of  the  Legislature. 

These  changes  will  be  affordable,  gradual,  and  practical. 

They  will  make  a  real,  positive  difference  in  the  lives  of  Ontarians. 

They  will  reflect  Ontarians'  values,  and  Ontarians'  priorities. 

Excellence  For  All  In  Public  Education 

Your  new  government's  first  and  most  important  priority  will  always  be  excellence  in  public  education. 

Its  goal  is  to  make  Ontario's  public  education  the  world's  best  education. 

The  groundwork  for  this  shared  accomplishment  will  be  set  in  this  session. 

Your  new  government  will  keep  its  commitment  to  introduce  legislation  designed  to  cancel  the  reckless 
private  school  tax  credit  that  drains  dollars  and  hope  away  from  better  public  education. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  bring  stability  and  peace  to  a  system  that  has  been  racked  by  turmoil  for 
too  long. 

It  proposes  to  form  a  genuine  education  partnership  with  this  province's  school  boards,  principals, 
teachers,  the  wider  community,  and  most  important,  parents  and  students. 

Your  new  government  will  work  with  schools  to  make  real  improvements  in  children's  reading,  writing 
and  math  skills. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  make  our  schools  safer. 

School  councils  will  be  invited  to  conduct  safety  audits  to  evaluate  their  need  for  enhancements  such  as 
security  cameras  at  school  entrances  to  keep  out  intruders. 

A  provincial  anti-bullying  hotline  will  be  established  and  anti-bullying  programs  developed  at  all  schools. 

Communities  will  be  asked  to  help  define  citizenship  values  for  Ontario's  new  character  education 
program  in  their  local  school  boards  to  strengthen  our  students'  education  experience. 

Your  new  government  will  treat  educators  with  the  respect  they  deserve  as  the  single  most  important 
influence,  apart  from  family,  in  terms  of  shaping  the  future  of  our  children  and  our  province. 


\2 November  20,  2003 

The  Premier  will  institute  the  "Premier's  Awards  for  Teaching  Excellence"  to  celebrate  exceptional 
teachers  and  the  work  they  do  for  their  students. 

New  programs  to  ensure  teaching  excellence  —  designed  in  cooperation  with  a  revitalized  Ontario 
College  of  Teachers  —  will  replace  the  expensive  and  unproductive  "teacher  testing"  program. 

Schools  belong  to  parents,  children,  and  the  communities  in  which  they  live  and  learn. 

That  is  why  your  new  government  has  already  kept  its  commitment  to  restore  the  principle  of  local 
democracy  in  our  school  boards. 

It  acknowledges  the  urgent  need  for  a  francophone  education  strategy  and  will  strike  a  task  force 
immediately  to  ensure  that  all  Ontario  children  receive  an  excellent  education. 

The  path  to  a  better  society,  and  a  more  prosperous  economy,  runs  through  our  public  schools. 

Your  new  government  believes  that,  for  too  long,  that  path  has  been  strewn  with  conflict,  cuts,  and  chaos. 

It's  time  to  begin  to  build  a  new  path,  with  cooperation,  creativity,  and  a  genuine  commitment  to  what's 
best  for  our  children. 

By  tackling  the  inherited  deficit,  your  new  government  will  strengthen  the  foundation  for  its  Excellence 
for  All  Education  plan,  including  smaller  class  sizes  in  the  early  grades,  learning  until  age  18,  and  its  Best 
Start  plan  for  early  childhood  education. 

The  Health  Care  We  Need 

Ontario's  commitment  to  public  education  is  a  measure  of  our  foresight. 

Our  commitment  to  medicare  is  a  measure  of  our  insight. 

Ontarians  understand  that  we  are  all  made  stronger  by  our  system  of  universal,  public  medicare. 

Ontarians  want  to  be  competitive  —  and  compassionate. 

Medicare  makes  us  both. 

The  Romanow  Commission  confirmed  that  Canadians  do  not  want  one  system  for  the  wealthy,  who  can 
buy  their  way  to  the  front  of  the  line,  and  another  for  everyone  else,  who  would  be  forced  to  wait  at  the 
back  of  it. 

In  fact,  your  new  government  will  be  entering  into  new  agreements  for  publicly  owned  hospitals  in 
Brampton  and  Ottawa.  This  will  ensure  that  these  facilities  are  not  privately  owned. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  introduce  the  Commitment  to  the  Future  of  Medicare  Act. 

If  passed,  it  will  protect  and  improve  universal,  public  medicare  for  all  Ontarians  by  making  two-tier, 
pay-your-way-to-the-front-of-the-line  health  care  illegal  in  Ontario. 

If  passed,  it  will  enshrine  in  provincial  law  the  five  principles  of  medicare:  universality,  portability, 
comprehensiveness,  public  administration,  and  accessibility. 

And  it  will  add  a  sixth  principle:  accountability. 

If  a  health  care  dollar  is  wasted,  a  patient  waits.  If  a  health  care  dollar  is  spent  wisely,  a  patient  benefits. 

Legislation  will  also  be  introduced  to  keep  this  government's  commitment  to  give  the  Provincial  Auditor 
new  powers  to  examine  how  public  funds  are  spent  by  transfer  partners  in  education  and  health  care, 
including  hospitals  and  other  health  care  organizations. 

Your  new  government  will  propose  changes  to  give  the  Chief  Medical  Officer  of  Health  the  independence 
required  to  protect  Ontarians. 

New  legislation  will  be  introduced  to  create  a  new  health  quality  council. 


November  20,  2003 \_3_ 

This  independent  council  will  report  directly  to  Ontarians  on  how  well  their  health  care  system  is  working 
—  and  how  well  their  government  is  working  to  improve  health  care. 

Your  new  government  understands  it  can  only  hold  others  to  a  higher  standard  if  it  subjects  itself  to  the 
same  standard. 

It  is  keeping  its  commitment  to  work  with  other  governments  to  create  a  national  health  council. 

It  is  keeping  its  commitment  to  work  cooperatively  with  the  federal  government  on  heath  care,  in  the 
interests  of  Ontarians. 

Already,  this  new  approach  is  finding  success.  There  is  more  money  coming  for  health  care.  And  the 
federal  government  committed  this  week  to  cover  half  of  the  true  health  care  costs  associated  with  SARS. 
This  is  welcome  news,  but  there  is  much  more  to  do,  and  your  new  government  will  continue  to  work 
with  Ottawa  to  fix  health  care,  instead  of  merely  affixing  blame. 

Your  new  government  understands  that  money  alone  will  not  save  medicare.  Nor  will  legislation  alone. 
Real,  positive  reform  is  needed,  starting  with  primary  health  care. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  improve  primary  care  through  the  creation  of  family  health  teams,  made  up 
of  health  care  professionals  who  will  protect  and  promote  the  health  of  Ontarians. 

These  teams  will  ensure  patients  get  care  closer  to  home  and  health  care  dollars  are  spent  wisely. 

Your  new  government  understands  that  promoting  good  health  is  as  important  as  treating  illness. 

It  will  make  cigarettes  more  expensive  to  prevent  young  people  from  lighting  up,  and  it  will  make  public 
and  work  places  in  Ontario  smoke-free  within  three  years. 

Like  public  education,  medicare  is  at  a  crossroads.  Ontarians  have  told  your  new  government  which 
direction  they  want  chosen  —  the  one  that  protects  and  improves  universal  medicare. 

By  tackling  the  inherited  deficit,  your  new  government  will  strengthen  the  foundation  for  the  Health  Care 
We  Need  plan,  including  more  family  doctors,  nurses,  and  hospital  beds. 

An  Economy  That  Achieves  Our  Potential 

Ontario's  economy  is  strong  and  vibrant,  but  it  faces  challenges  from  beyond  our  borders,  and  a  threat 
from  within. 

Other  jurisdictions  are  working  hard  to  invest  in  building  workforces  that  can  attract  the  most  investment 
and  the  best  jobs. 

Ironically,  the  province's  own  finances  threaten  to  hold  back  our  economy,  by  draining  more  dollars  into 
servicing  our  debt,  and  limiting  our  ability  to  improve  our  workforce,  and  our  prosperity. 

Ontario's  colleges,  universities,  and  skills  training  programs  are  critical  to  creating  prosperity. 

Your  new  government  will  put  in  place  a  long-term  plan  that  ensures  the  quality  and  accessibility  of 
higher  education  for  generations  to  come. 

While  that  plan  is  put  in  place,  tuition  fees  will  be  frozen  for  two  years. 

Your  new  government  believes  our  province's  diversity  is  a  tremendous  source  of  strength. 

It  will  work  with  the  federal  government  to  finalize  immigration  and  labour  market  development 
agreements  that  build  on  this  strength. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  ensure  that  highly  qualified,  internationally  trained  tradespeople  and 
professionals  can  work  in  their  chosen  field,  here  in  their  chosen  province. 

Your  new  government  will  celebrate  the  hard-working  entrepreneurs  who  create  jobs  and  attract 
investment,  and  support  their  endeavours  here  at  home  and  abroad. 


14 November  20,  2003 

It  will  work  to  support  and  protect  our  hard-working  farmers,  and  promote  their  products  by  promoting 
food  safety. 

It  will  take  the  necessary  steps  to  assure  Ontarians  their  meat  is  safe. 

Your  new  government  will  do  its  part  to  ensure  all  of  our  businesses  can  operate  in  a  stable  climate,  by 
delivering  reliable,  affordable  electricity. 

It  will  begin  to  bring  new  supply  online,  and  pave  the  way  for  new  electricity  generation,  by  introducing  a 
new,  responsible  plan  for  electricity  pricing. 

It  will  give  Ontario  businesses  and  families  the  information  and  tools  they  need  to  conserve  electricity  — 
and  save  money. 

Trade  with  other  provinces  and  other  countries,  particularly  the  United  States,  is  our  lifeblood.  Our 
economy  depends  on  it. 

Your  new  government  has  already  begun  talks  with  other  provinces,  aimed  at  breaking  down 
interprovincial  trade  barriers.  And  it  will  work  with  the  federal  and  U.S.  state  governments  to  ensure  our 
borders  are  safe,  efficient,  and  open  to  trade. 

A  commitment  was  made  to  help  hard-working  families  make  ends  meet  before  they  reach  their  wits' 
end.  That  commitment  will  be  kept. 

For  the  first  time  in  eight  years,  there  will  be  an  increase  in  the  minimum  wage. 

Legislation  will  be  introduced  to  end  the  60-hour  workweek. 

And  action  will  be  taken  on  auto  insurance. 

Your  new  government  has  already  acted  to  stop  new  applications  for  rate  hikes,  and  will  now  work  to 
bring  rates  down. 

Your  new  government  understands  that  for  Ontario  to  succeed  in  a  highly  competitive  and  global 
economy,  we  need  every  Ontarian,  from  our  youngest  citizens  to  our  seniors,  at  their  best. 

Your  new  government  will  keep  its  commitment  to  treat  seniors  with  respect  and  dignity.  Its  first  step 
will  be  to  set  high  standards  for  nursing  homes. 

Your  new  government  will  work  with  Ontarians  with  disabilities  on  meaningful  legislation  that  will  allow 
them  to  fully  participate  in  building  a  stronger  province. 

Growing  Strong  Communities 

The  strength  of  our  province  depends,  too,  on  the  strength  of  our  communities. 

Yet  our  communities  are  not  all  they  can  be. 

Ontarians  want  cleaner  air,  their  water  protected,  and  their  greenspace  preserved. 

They  want  their  communities  to  be  more  livable,  safer,  stronger. 

Your  new  government  will  strengthen  our  communities  and  work  with  other  governments  to  create  a  new 
deal  for  cities. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  introduce  legislation  that  will  establish  a  permanent  greenbelt  across  the 
Golden  Horseshoe,  and  a  new  commission  to  protect  it. 

It  will  introduce  legislation  to  establish  a  Greater  Toronto  Transportation  Authority,  which  will  improve 
public  transit,  reduce  gridlock,  and  improve  the  air  we  breathe. 

Your  new  government  will  keep  its  commitment  to  ban  the  disposal  of  untreated  toxic  sludge. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  stop  the  practice  of  giving  away  our  precious  fresh  water  resources. 


November  20,  2003 15 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  implement  the  O'Connor  recommendations,  starting  with  the  hiring  of 
more  water  inspectors  and  stronger  protection  of  our  drinking  water  at  source. 

Shortly,  your  new  government  will  take  the  first  steps  towards  replacing  our  biggest  polluters  by  phasing 
out  Ontario  coal-fired  electricity  generating  plants. 

Communities  will  be  encouraged  to  grow  smart. 

Your  new  government  will  introduce  legislation  that  will  give  the  Ontario  Municipal  Board  a  new 
direction  —  one  that  encourages  sustainable  growth  instead  of  sprawl. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  intensify  growth  within  our  cities  by  rehabilitating  brownfields. 

Your  new  government  will  make  our  communities  safer. 


More  will  be  done  to  protect  women  and  children  from  domestic  violence,  including  improvements  in  the 
provision  of  second-stage  housing  for  victims. 

Your  new  government  will  work  with  the  federal  government  to  amend  the  Criminal  Code  to  make  it 
more  difficult  for  accused  abusers  to  make  bail. 

It  will  work  with  the  police  to  develop  risk  assessments  for  those  accused  of  domestic  violence. 

Deadbeat  parents  who  fail  to  support  their  children  will  be  held  to  their  family  responsibilities. 

New  measures  will  be  put  in  place  to  ensure  children  get  what  they  need  and  what  they  are  owed. 

Pregnant  women  on  social  assistance  will  get  the  nutritional  supplements  they  need. 

Your  new  government  will  introduce  legislation  to  protect  tenants  with  real  rent  control. 

This  government  congratulates  the  newly  elected  municipal  leaders  across  Ontario  and  invites  them  to 
work  with  this  government,  as  partners. 

It  will  keep  its  commitment  to  introduce  legislation  that  ensures  a  strong  voice  for  the  north,  by  keeping 
1 1  northern  representatives  in  this  chamber. 

Your  new  government  will  create  northern  development  councils  as  a  direct  link  from  northern 
communities  to  the  Minister  of  Northern  Development  and  Mines. 

One  of  the  first  issues  to  be  examined  by  these  councils  will  be  how  to  best  encourage  young  northern 
Ontarians  to  stay  in  northern  Ontario. 

This  new  government's  commitment  to  govern  for  all  Ontarians  —  those  from  cities  and  towns,  from 
north  and  south  —  will  be  kept. 

Ontarians  have  said  they  do  not  want  their  province  divided  by  region  or  area  code. 

They  want  to  build  a  strong  province  by  building  strong  communities.  By  tackling  the  inherited  deficit, 
your  new  government  will  strengthen  the  foundation  for  the  Growing  Strong  Communities  plan, 
including  better  public  transit  and  more  affordable  housing. 

Government  That  Works  For  You 

Ontarians  want  a  government  that  works  for  them. 

Your  new  government  has  made  a  commitment  to  bring  an  open,  honest  and  transparent  approach  to 
government. 

It  is  keeping  that  commitment. 

In  this  session,  it  will  introduce  the  most  ambitious  democratic  renewal  legislation  ever  seen  in  Ontario. 

It  will  open  up  government  and  its  agencies,  bring  the  voices  of  Ontarians  to  Queen's  Park,  and  make  the 
entire  public  sector  more  transparent  and  responsible  to  Ontarians,  because  transparency  and 
accountability  are  the  best  safeguards  of  public  services. 


16 November  20.  2003 

Already,  this  new  government  has  appointed  a  new  Minister  for  Democratic  Renewal. 

It  has  given  every  government  MPP  a  role  on  the  powerful  cabinet  committees  that  help  guide 
government  policy. 

In  the  months  ahead,  this  new  government  will  give  all  members  an  opportunity  to  do  more  on  behalf  of 
their  constituents. 

All  ministers  of  the  Crown  will  be  expected  to  consistently  attend  Question  Period,  and  be  accountable  to 
the  Legislature. 

The  spring  Budget  will  be  held  in  this  chamber.   Every  budget  will.   And  every  budget  will  reflect  what 
Ontarians  have  told  this  new  government  they  want  done. 

We  have  the  best-informed  citizenry  in  the  history  of  this  province.   Your  new  government  is  going  to 
call  upon  Ontarians  to  share  their  ideas,  to  describe  how  government  can  work  better  for  them. 

Ontario  is  fortunate  to  have  a  hard-working  public  service  that  is  second  to  none.  Your  new  government 
is  going  to  call  upon  public  servants  to  share  their  ideas  on  how  we  all  can  best  serve  the  public. 

IV.  MAKING  ONTARIO  THE  ENVY  OF  THE  WORLD 

Your  new  government  will  do  what  needs  to  be  done. 

It  will  tackle  the  $5.6  billion  deficit  it  has  inherited  —  responsibly,  but  relentlessly. 

It  is  clear-eyed  but  optimistic. 

Your  new  government  understands  its  job. 

It  will  be  honest  with  Ontarians,  giving  them  the  straight  goods  on  the  challenges  we  all  face. 

It  will  be  responsible  enough  to  tackle  those  challenges,  instead  of  running  away  from  them,  or  hiding 
them,  or  passing  them  on  to  our  children  and  grandchildren. 

It  will  work  as  hard  as  the  people  it  is  privileged  to  serve. 

It  will  be  innovative,  fixing  our  finances  in  a  way  that's  in  keeping  with  Ontarians'  values. 

Your  new  government  will  get  the  job  done,  so  it  can  deliver  real,  positive  change  for  the  people  of 
Ontario. 

In  this  historic  chamber,  in  the  woodwork  that  adorns  the  government  side  of  the  House,  an  artisan  has 
carved  three  words. 

They  are:  integrity,  industry,  and  intelligence. 

As  we  begin  to  write  a  new  chapter  for  Ontario,  let  us  be  mindful  of  them. 

Your  new  government  believes  strongly: 

We  can  have  excellence  for  all  in  public  education. 

We  can  deliver  the  health  care  we  need. 

We  can  grow  strong  communities. 

We  can  change  how  government  works. 

We  can  build  a  prosperous  economy,  in  which  every  Ontarian  can  reach  his  or  her  full  potential . . . 

If  we  have  the  integrity  to  tell  people  the  truth  about  the  challenges  we  face. 

If  we  are  industrious  enough  to  work  as  hard  as  the  people  we  are  privileged  to  serve. 

If  we  are  intelligent  enough  to  realize  that  we  can  only  lead  the  people  of  Ontario  by  listening  to  the 
people  of  Ontario ... 


November  20,  2003 \J_ 

Then,  together,  we  can  make  Ontario  the  envy  of  the  world,  once  again. 
Let's  get  to  work. 


I.  LE  DEFI  A  RELEVER 

Monsieur  le  president,  Mesdames  et  Messieurs  les  membres  de  l'Assemblee  legislative,  citoyennes  et 
citoyens  de  1' Ontario, 

La  paix,  l'ordre  et  une  gestion  saine  des  affaires  publiques  sont  des  signes  distinctifs  du  Canada. 

La  tradition  parlementaire  de  1' Ontario  prevoit  une  transition  sans  heurt  entre  un  gouvernement  et  son 
successeur. 

A  la  suite  des  dernieres  elections,  j'ai  demande  a  Dalton  McGuinty  de  former  le  gouvernement  de 
1'  Ontario. 

J'ai  ensuite  preside  a  l'assermentation  du  nouveau  premier  ministre  et  des  membres  du  Conseil  executif. 

Aujourd'hui,  j'ai  le  privilege,  a  titre  de  representant  de  Sa  Majeste,  de  prononcer  le  premier  discours  du 
Trone  de  ce  nouveau  gouvernement. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  regarde  vers  l'avenir  avec  beaucoup  d'espoir. 

II  sait  ce  dont  les  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens  sont  capables  parce  qu'il  sait  ce  dont  ils  ont  ete  capables  par  le 
passe. 

Notre  tissu  social  a  ete  mis  a  mal  -  mais  il  a  refuse  de  rompre. 

Notre  economie  a  ete  menacee  -  mais  elle  est  restee  vigoureuse. 

D'aucuns  ont  rejete  nos  valeurs,  les  jugeant  depassees  -  mais  ce  sont  des  valeurs  qui  perdurent. 

II  n'y  a  rien  que  les  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens  ne  puissent  faire  quand  ils  travaillent,  qu'ils  revent  et  qu'ils 
batissent  ensemble. 

Ce  qu'ils  attendent  de  leur  gouvernement,  c'est  l'honnetete,  la  responsabilite,  l'effort,  l'innovation  et  un 
reel  engagement  en  vers  l'avenir. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  est  assez  honnete  pour  ne  pas  vous  cacher  les  defis  auxquels  il  doit  faire 
face. 

Voici  done  ce  qu'il  en  est :  1' Ontario  se  heurte  a  un  probleme  majeur,  un  probleme  qui  vient  entraver 
notre  espoir  d'un  avenir  meilleur. 

Et  il  faut  le  regler  d'urgence. 

Ce  probleme  menace  non  seulement  la  possibility  d'ameliorer  les  services  publics  a  l'avenir,  mais 
1' existence  meme  des  importants  services  dont  nous  disposons  actuellement. 

Et  il  ne  s'agit  pas  d'une  figure  de  style.  C'est  tout  simplement  la  realite. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  a  demande  a  Erik  Peters,  ancien  verificateur  provincial,  de  vous  dire  toute 
la  verite  sur  la  situation  financiere  de  1' Ontario. 

M.  Peters  a  revele  que  l'Ontario  a  herite  d'un  deficit  de  5,6  milliards  de  dollars. 

Par  suite  de  reductions  d'impot  irresponsables,  les  depenses  au  chapitre  des  programmes  ont  augmente, 
depuis  2000,  plus  de  dix  fois  plus  vite  que  les  recettes  fiscales. 

L' economie  de  l'Ontario  est  vigoureuse,  mais  les  finances  du  gouvernement  provincial  sont  fragiles,  et 
cela  represente  une  menace  pour  les  services  publics  dont  nous  avons  besoin  pour  soutenir  l'economie. 


18 November  20,  2003 

La  situation  fmanciere  de  la  province  n'est  tout  simplement  pas  viable  pour  les  families  de  1'  Ontario,  et 
moins  encore  pour  leurs  enfants  et  leurs  petits-enfants. 

Le  nouveau  gouvernement  travaillera  avec  vous  pour  relever  ce  defi. 

II  ne  dissimulera  pas  le  probleme  en  faisant  miroiter  de  l'argent  qu'il  n'a  pas. 

II  n'aura  pas  recours  a  des  tours  de  passe-passe  comptables  pour  le  faire  disparaitre. 

Et  il  ne  restera  jamais  a  ne  rien  faire. 

S'il  ne  faisait  rien,  le  deficit  herite  de  5,6  milliards  de  dollars  passerait  a  7,7  milliards  l'annee  prochaine, 
et  a  pres  de  8,6  milliards  en  2007. 

II  n'en  est  pas  question  alors  que  le  service  de  la  dette  provinciale  -  qui  s'eleve  a  8,7  milliards  de  dollars  - 
est  deja  presque  egal  a  que  ce  que  nous  depensons  pour  nos  ecoles. 

II  n'en  est  pas  question  puisque  cela  reviendrait  a  reduire  toujours  da  vantage  le  financement  des  services 
publics  sur  lesquels  compte  la  population  ontarienne. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  a  ete  elu  pour  ameliorer  les  services  de  sante  et  les  ecoles,  et  pour  creer  des 
communautes  plus  dynamiques  et  une  economie  encore  plus  vigoureuse. 

Et  il  apportera  des  changements  reels  et  positifs  dans  tous  ces  secteurs. 

II  le  fera  sans  faillir,  mais  de  facon  responsable. 

Ses  premieres  ameliorations  auront  un  impact  considerable,  mais  elles  resteront  dans  les  limites  de  ses 
moyens. 

Un  entrepreneur  charge  de  renover  le  premier  etage  d'une  maison  ferait  preuve  de  negligence  si, 
decouvrant  que  le  sous-sol  brule,  il  ne  commencait  pas  par  eteindre  le  feu. 

Un  gouvernement  elu  pour  ameliorer  les  services  de  sante  et  1' education  ferait  preuve  de  negligence  si, 
decouvrant  un  deficit  si  grave  qu'il  menace  les  ecoles  et  les  hopitaux,  il  decidait  de  passer  outre. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  a  decide  de  s'attaquer  a  ce  probleme  pour  les  bonnes  raisons  -  non  pour 
conceder  des  reductions  d'impot  a  certains,  mais  pour  pouvoir  offrir  des  possibilites  a  tous,  en  preservant 
puis  en  ameliorant  les  importants  services  publics  de  1 'Ontario. 

II.  A  L' ASSAUT  DU  DEFICIT  -  AVEC  L'AIDE  DE  LA  POPULATION 

Les  deputes  seront  invites,  au  cours  de  la  presente  session,  a  prendre  des  mesures  immediates  pour  faire 
face  au  deficit  de  5,6  milliards  de  dollars  dont  le  nouveau  gouvernement  a  herite. 

L'impot  des  societes  est  deja  concurrentiel.  En  consequence,  le  nouveau  gouvernement  s'est  engage  a 
annuler  la  derniere  etape  de  la  reduction  de  l'impot  des  societes. 

Le  gouvernement  proposera  une  loi  pour  respecter  cet  engagement. 

Les  families  de  1' Ontario  ont  dit  au  nouveau  gouvernement  de  ne  pas  diminuer  leurs  impots  pour  le 
moment  parce  que  toute  reduction  d'impot  augmenterait  le  deficit  et  menacerait  les  services  publics. 

En  consequence,  le  nouveau  gouvernement  s'est  engage  a  maintenir  le  taux  d' imposition  du  revenu  des 
particuliers  a  son  niveau  actuel. 

Le  gouvernement  proposera  une  loi  pour  respecter  cet  engagement. 

Les  personnes  agees  veulent  de  bonnes  ecoles  pour  leurs  petits-enfants.  En  consequence,  le  nouveau 
gouvernement  s'est  engage  a  eliminer  le  credit  d'impot  foncier  scolaire  pour  les  personnes  agees. 

Le  gouvernement  proposera  une  loi  pour  respecter  cet  engagement. 

Nos  ecoles  publiques  ont  sombre  dans  le  declin  et  la  discorde,  et  elles  ont  besoin  de  ressources  nouvelles 
et  d'un  nouveau  depart.  En  consequence,  le  nouveau  gouvernement  s'est  engage  a  eliminer  le  credit 
d'impot  accorde  aux  parents  qui  envoient  leurs  enfants  a  l'ecole  privee. 


November  20,  2003 19 

Le  gouvernement  proposera  une  loi  pour  respecter  cet  engagement. 

La  population  de  l'Ontario  veut  que  l'argent  durement  gagne  par  les  contribuables  soit  utilise  pour  les 
servir  -  non  pour  les  manipuler. 

En  consequence,  le  nouveau  gouvernement  s'est  engage  a  eliminer  le  gaspillage  de  fonds  publics  que 
represente  la  publicite  politique  et  partisane. 

Le  gouvernement  proposera  une  loi  pour  respecter  cet  engagement. 

La  population  de  l'Ontario  veut  que  chacun  fasse  sa  part.  En  consequence,  le  nouveau  gouvernement  s'est 
engage  a  obliger  les  societes  qui  n'ont  pas  acquitte  leurs  impots  a  payer  leur  part. 

Le  gouvernement  respectera  cet  engagement. 

La  population  de  l'Ontario  veut  que  le  gouvernement  depense  les  fonds  publics  judicieusement.  En 
consequence,  le  nouveau  gouvernement  s'est  engage  a  reduire  ce  que  le  verificateur  provincial  a  appele 
un  recours  abusif  aux  consultants  cherement  remuneres. 

Le  gouvernement  respectera  cet  engagement. 

La  population  de  l'Ontario  veut  que  le  gouvernement  vive  selon  ses  moyens.  En  consequence,  le  nouveau 
gouvernement  s'est  engage  a  gerer  les  finances  de  la  province  de  facon  responsable  -  pour  changer. 

Compte  tenu  de  ce  que  nous  savons  maintenant  etre  un  deficit  herite  de  5,6  milliards  de  dollars,  le  gel 
actuel  du  prix  de  l'electricite  n'est  ni  viable,  ni  responsable. 

II  maintient  les  prix  a  un  niveau  artificiellement  faible  et  fait  payer  la  difference  a  la  population  de 
l'Ontario.  II  compromet  la  capacite  du  gouvernement  d'ameliorer  l'education  et  les  soins  de  sante. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  presentera  un  plan  d'etablissement  du  prix  de  l'electricite  qui  correspondra 
mieux  au  cout  veritable  de  l'electricite  -  et  a  l'etat  veritable  des  finances  de  la  province  -  tout  en 
encourageant  la  population  ontarienne  a  faire  des  economies  d'energie. 

Ensemble,  ces  mesures  feront  beaucoup  pour  aider  votre  gouvernement  a  respecter  l'un  de  ses 
engagements  fondamentaux,  a  savoir  l'etablissement  d'un  budget  vraiment  equilibre. 

Mais  la  tache  ne  pourra  etre  menee  a  bien  qu'avec  l'aide  de  millions  d'Ontariennes  et  Ontariens. 

La  nouvelle  annee  sera  l'occasion  pour  le  gouvernement  d'inviter  la  population  de  l'Ontario  a  participer  a 
un  nouveau  dialogue. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  demandera  aux  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens  de  1' aider  a  dresser  le  budget  du 
printemps  en  tenant  compte  des  veritables  choix  qui  s'offrent  a  la  province. 

II  proposera  au  public  des  idees  dont  certaines  sont  fort  hardies  et  peuvent  meme  preter  a  contro verse. 

La  population  de  l'Ontario  comprend  que  ce  n'est  pas  en  bricolant  qu'on  peut  reparer  un  probleme  grave. 
Et  ce  n'est  pas  en  continuant  a  agir  comme  par  le  passe  qu'on  apportera  des  changements  reels  et  positifs. 

Nous  devons  changer  la  facon  dont  le  gouvernement  fonctionne  pour  qu'il  serve  la  population  de  facon 
responsable  et  soutenue,  dans  les  limites  de  ses  moyens. 

Ce  n'est  pas  exactement  l'emploi  qu'a  postule  votre  nouveau  gouvernement,  mais  c'est  le  travail  qu'on 

lui  a  donne  a  faire. 

■ 
Et  ce  travail,  il  le  fera. 

II  le  fera  parce  qu'il  le  faut :  a  lui  seul,  le  deficit  de  cette  annee  couterait  aux  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens 
280  millions  de  dollars  de  plus  en  interets. 

A  la  fin  de  la  quatrieme  annee  du  present  mandat,  ce  chiffre  atteindrait  1,1  milliard  de  dollars  -  de  quoi 
payer  15  000  infirmieres,  16  000  enseignants  ou  1  000  appareils  d'IRM. 


20 November  20,  2003 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  fera  son  travail  de  maniere  a  augmenter  le  nombre  d'infirmieres, 
d'enseignants  et  d'appareils  IRM  au  service  des  families  de  1' Ontario  -  et  non  les  interets  verses  aux 
creanciers  de  la  province. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  est  toujours  determine  a  apporter  des  changements  reels  et  positifs  en 
ameliorant  les  services  publics  sur  lesquels  comptent  les  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens. 

II  est  egalement  convaincu  qu'il  faut  commencer  par  consolider  les  bases  financieres  sur  lesquelles 
reposent  ces  services. 

Ce  sont  des  bases  que  nous  devons  affermir  ensemble  dans  l'interet  public. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  demandera  a  ses  partenaires  des  secteurs  de  la  sante  et  de  1' education  ainsi 
que  du  secteur  parapublic  de  reflechir,  avant  de  reclamer  des  ameliorations,  au  fait  que  nous  risquons  de 
perdre  ce  que  nous  avons  deja. 

Si  les  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens  travaillent  ensemble  aujourd'hui  de  facon  responsable,  nous  pourrons  batir 
un  avenir  encore  meilleur. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  sait  que  nous  ne  pouvons  faire  de  grandes  choses  que  si  nous  travaillons, 
que  nous  revons  et  que  nous  batissons  ensemble  -  pour  changer. 

Et  il  sait  que  les  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens  se  montreront  a  la  mesure  du  defi  qui  se  pose. 

III.  PLACE  AUX  CHANGEMENTS  REELS  ET  POSITIFS 

Ce  defi  va  ralentir  le  rythme  des  changements  prevus. 

Mais  votre  nouveau  gouvernement  apportera  ces  changements. 

Les  changements  ont  deja  commence  et  ils  se  poursuivront  pendant  la  presente  session  de  l'Assemblee 
legislative. 

Ils  seront  graduels  et  pratiques,  et  ils  resteront  dans  les  limites  de  nos  moyens. 

Ils  auront  un  impact  reel  et  positif  sur  la  vie  des  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens. 

Ils  temoigneront  de  leurs  valeurs  et  de  leurs  priorites. 

L  'excellence  pour  tous  et  Unites  dans  le  secteur  de  V education  publique 

L' excellence  dans  le  secteur  de  1' education  publique  restera  la  grande  priorite  de  votre  nouveau 
gouvernement. 

Son  objectif  est  de  faire  de  1' education  publique  de  1' Ontario  la  meilleure  education  du  monde. 

Le  travail  de  base  a  effectuer  pour  atteindre  ensemble  cet  objectif  sera  defini  au  cours  de  la  presente 
session. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  proposer  une  loi  visant  a  annuler  le 
credit  d'impot  accorde  de  facon  irreflechie  aux  parents  qui  envoient  leurs  enfants  a  l'ecole  privee,  credit 
qui  detourne  les  fonds  de  l'education  publique  et  sape  les  espoirs  d' amelioration  dans  ce  secteur. 

II  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  d'apporter  la  stabilite  et  la  paix  a  un  systeme  livre  depuis  trop 
longtemps  a  la  confusion. 

II  se  propose  d'etablir  un  veritable  partenariat  avec  les  conseils  scolaires,  les  directrices  et  directeurs 
d'ecole,  le  personnel  enseignant,  le  public  et,  ce  qui  est  le  plus  important,  les  parents  et  les  eleves  de  la 
province. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  travaillera  avec  les  ecoles  pour  veiller  a  ce  que  les  enfants  ameliorent 
serieusement  leurs  competences  en  lecture,  en  ecriture  et  en  mathematiques. 

II  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  rendre  les  ecoles  plus  securitaires. 


November  20,  2003 21_ 

Les  conseils  d'ecole  seront  invites  a  proceder  a  des  verifications  de  la  securite  pour  evaluer  la  necessite  de 
renforcements  tels  que  la  pose  de  cameras  de  surveillance  a  l'entree  des  batiments  pour  decourager  les 
intrus. 

Un  service  provincial  d'assistance  telephonique  en  cas  d' intimidation  sera  etabli,  et  des  programmes  de 
lutte  contre  l'intimidation  seront  mis  en  place  dans  toutes  les  ecoles. 

Pour  renforcer  l'education  des  eleves,  les  collectivites  seront  invitees  a  participer  a  la  redefinition,  au  sein 
de  leur  conseil  scolaire,  des  valeurs  civiques  sur  lesquelles  fonder  le  nouveau  programme  de  formation  du 
caractere. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  traitera  les  educatrices  et  educateurs  avec  le  respect  qu'ils  meritent,  eux  qui, 
apres  la  famille,  ont  l'influence  la  plus  marquee  sur  l'avenir  de  nos  enfants  et  de  notre  province. 

Le  premier  ministre  instituera  le  «  Prix  du  premier  ministre  pour  l'excellence  en  enseignement »  pour 
honorer  les  membres  exceptionnels  du  personnel  enseignant  et  souligner  le  travail  qu'ils  font  pour  leurs 
eleves. 

De  nouveaux  programmes  visant  a  assurer  l'excellence  de  l'enseignement  -  concus  en  collaboration  avec 
un  Ordre  des  enseignantes  et  des  enseignants  de  1' Ontario  renouvele  -  remplaceront  l'onereux  et  inutile 
programme  d' evaluation  du  personnel  enseignant. 

Les  ecoles  appartiennent  aux  parents,  aux  enfants  ainsi  qu'aux  collectivites  ou  ils  vivent  et  etudient. 

C'est  pourquoi  votre  gouvernement  a  deja  respecte  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  restaurer  le  principe  de  la 
democratic  locale  dans  les  conseils  scolaires. 

Votre  gouvernement  reconnait  l'urgente  necessite  d'adopter  une  strategic  en  matiere  d'education  en 
francais,  et  il  va  immediatement  constituer  un  groupe  de  travail  charge  de  veiller  a  ce  que  tous  les  enfants 
de  l'Ontario  recoivent  une  excellente  education. 

Le  chemin  vers  une  societe  meilleure  et  une  economie  prospere  passe  par  nos  ecoles  publiques. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  estime  que  ce  chemin  est  depuis  trop  longtemps  mine  par  les  conflits,  les 
compressions  budgetaires  et  le  chaos. 

II  est  temps  d'entrer  dans  une  ere  nouvelle  marquee  par  la  cooperation,  la  creativite  et  un  engagement  reel 
a  l'egard  du  bien  de  nos  enfants. 

En  s'attaquant  au  deficit  dont  il  a  herite,  votre  nouveau  gouvernement  consolidera  les  assises  de  son  plan 
en  matiere  d'education,  L'excellence  pour  tous  et  toutes,  qui  prevoit  une  reduction  de  la  taille  des  classes 
dans  les  premieres  annees  d'etudes  ainsi  qu'un  prolongement  de  la  scolarite  obligatoire  jusqu'a  18  ans  et 
une  strategic  Meilleur  depart  pour  l'education  de  la  petite  enfance. 

Les  soins  de  sante  qu  'il  nous  faut 

L'engagement  de  l'Ontario  envers  l'education  publique  n'a  d'egal  que  son  engagement  envers  le  regime 
d'assurance-sante. 

La  population  de  l'Ontario  comprend  que  notre  systeme  universel  d'assurance-sante  est  une  source  de 
force  pour  nous  tous. 

Elle  veut  un  systeme  qui  soit  a  la  mesure  de  nos  moyens  -  mais  qui  laisse  place  a  la  compassion. 

Et  c'est  ainsi  que  fonctionne  notre  regime  d'assurance-sante. 

La  commission  Romanow  a  confirme  que  les  Canadiennes  et  Canadiens  ne  veulent  pas  d'un  systeme  de 
sante  pour  les  riches,  capables  de  s'acheter  les  premieres  places,  et  d'un  systeme  pour  les  autres,  forces  de 
faire  la  queue  et  d'attendre  leur  tour. 

En  fait,  votre  nouveau  gouvernement  conclura  de  nouvelles  ententes  pour  1' installation  d'hopitaux  publics 
a  Brampton  et  Ottawa,  ce  qui  evitera  que  ces  emplacements  ne  soient  utilises  a  des  fins  privees. 


22 November  20,  2003 

II  respectera  sa  promesse  de  proposer  une  loi  sur  1' engagement  d' assurer  l'avenir  de  l'assurance-sante. 

Si  elle  est  adoptee,  cette  loi  permettra  de  proteger  et  d'ameliorer  le  systeme  de  sante  publique  universel  en 
rendant  illegal  en  Ontario  un  systeme  a  deux  vitesses  qui  accepte  que  Ton  paie  pour  se  retrouver  en  tete 
de  ligne. 

Si  elle  est  adoptee,  la  loi  consacrera  dans  la  legislation  provinciale  les  cinq  principes  du  regime 
d'assurance-sante  :  universalite,  transferabilite,  integralite,  gestion  publique  et  accessibility . 

Et  elle  en  etablira  un  sixieme  :  l'imputabilite. 

Chaque  fois  qu'un  dollar  affecte  aux  soins  de  sante  est  gaspille,  un  patient  attend.  Chaque  fois  qu'un  dollar 
affecte  aux  soins  de  sante  est  depense  judicieusement,  un  patient  y  gagne. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  proposera  une  loi  pour  respecter  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  conferer  au 
verificateur  provincial  le  pouvoir  d'examiner  la  fa9on  dont  les  organismes  des  secteurs  de  l'education  et  de 
la  sante  beneficiant  de  paiements  de  transfert,  y  compris  les  hopitaux  et  les  autres  organisations  de  soins 
de  sante,  depensent  les  fonds  publics. 

II  proposera  aussi  des  changements  pour  donner  au  medecin  hygieniste  en  chef  l'autonomie  dont  il  a 
besoin  pour  proteger  la  population  ontarienne. 

Enfin,  il  proposera  une  loi  pour  creer  un  nouveau  conseil  de  la  qualite  des  services  de  sante. 

Ce  conseil  independant  rendra  compte  directement  a  la  population  du  fonctionnement  du  systeme  de  sante 
-  et  des  mesures  que  le  gouvernement  prendra  pour  ameliorer  le  systeme. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  est  conscient  qu'il  ne  peut  pas  s'attendre  a  ce  que  les  autres  respectent  des 
normes  elevees  s'il  ne  les  respecte  pas  lui-meme. 

II  respecte  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  participer  avec  d'autres  gouvernements  a  la  constitution  d'un 
conseil  national  de  la  sante. 

II  respecte  aussi  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  travailler  de  facon  concertee  avec  le  gouvernement  federal 
dans  le  domaine  de  la  sante  afm  d'agir  dans  l'interet  de  la  population  ontarienne. 

Cette  nouvelle  facon  de  faire  remporte  deja  du  succes.  Par  exemple,  l'Ontario  recevra  des  credits 
supplementaires  au  chapitre  de  la  sante,  et  le  gouvernement  federal  s'est  engage  cette  semaine  a  couvrir  la 
moitie  des  depenses  reelles  de  sante  liees  au  SRAS.  Ce  sont  la  d'excellentes  nouvelles,  mais  il  reste 
encore  beaucoup  a  faire.  Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  continuera  de  collaborer  avec  le  gouvernement 
federal  pour  ameliorer  le  systeme  de  sante  au  lieu  de  se  contenter  de  jeter  le  blame  sur  les  autres. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  comprend  que  l'argent  -  ou  une  loi  -  ne  peuvent,  a  eux  seuls,  sauver  notre 
regime  d'assurance-sante.  II  faut  apporter  des  changements  reels  et  positifs  au  systeme,  en  commencant 
par  les  soins  primaires. 

II  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  d'ameliorer  les  soins  primaires  en  creant  des  equipes  de  sante 
familiale  composees  de  professionnels  de  la  sante  qui  auront  pour  mission  de  proteger  et  de  promouvoir  la 
sante  des  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens. 

Ces  equipes  veilleront  aussi,  d'une  part,  a  ce  que  les  malades  recoivent  plus  pres  de  chez  eux  les  soins 
dont  ils  ont  besoin  et,  d'autre  part,  a  ce  que  les  fonds  affectes  aux  soins  de  sante  soient  depenses 
judicieusement. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  comprend  que  la  promotion  de  la  sante  est  tout  aussi  importante  que  le 
traitement  des  maladies. 

II  augmentera  le  prix  des  cigarettes  afin  d'empecher  les  jeunes  de  commencer  a  fumer,  et  il  interdira  d'ici 
trois  ans  la  consommation  de  tabac  dans  les  endroits  publics  et  les  lieux  de  travail  de  l'Ontario. 


November  20,  2003 23^ 

A  l'instar  du  systeme  d'education  publique,  le  regime  d'assurance-sante  est  a  la  croisee  des  chemins.  Les 
Ontariennes  et  Ontariens  ont  indique  a  votre  nouveau  gouvernement  la  direction  a  prendre.  C'est  celle  qui 
vise  la  protection  et  Amelioration  du  systeme  universel  d'assurance-sante. 

En  s'attaquant  au  deficit  dont  il  a  herite,  votre  nouveau  gouvernement  consolidera  les  assises  de  son  plan 
Les  soins  de  sante  qu'il  nous  faut,  qui  prevoit  1'augmentation  du  nombre  de  medecins  de  famille, 
d'infirmieres  et  d'infirmiers,  et  de  lits  d'hopital. 

Une  economie  qui  realise  son  potentiel 

L'economie  de  l'Ontario  est  vigoureuse  et  dynamique,  mais  elle  fait  face  a  des  defis,  tant  de  l'etranger  que 
de  l'interieur. 

D'autres  competences  territoriales  sont  en  train  de  prendre  des  mesures  energiques  pour  investir  dans  la 
formation  d'une  main-d'oeuvre  capable  d'attirer  le  plus  de  capitaux  possible  et  les  meilleurs  emplois  qui 
soient. 

En  fait,  la  situation  financiere  meme  de  la  province  menace  de  freiner  notre  economie,  car  des  sommes 
supplementaires  doivent  etre  affectees  au  service  de  la  dette,  ce  qui  limite  notre  capacite  de  mieux  former 
notre  main-d'oeuvre  et  d'accroitre  notre  prosperity . 

Les  colleges  et  les  universites  de  l'Ontario,  de  meme  que  les  programmes  de  formation  professionnelle, 
sont  indispensables  a  la  prosperity  de  la  province. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  instaurera  un  plan  a  long  terme  visant  a  assurer  la  qualite  de  l'education 
superieure  qui  sera  dispensee  aux  generations  a  venir,  de  meme  que  son  accessibility. 

Les  frais  de  scolarite  seront  geles  sur  une  periode  de  deux  ans,  pendant  la  mise  en  oeuvre  de  ce  plan. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  croit  que  la  diversite  de  notre  province  est  une  incroyable  source  de 
dynamisme. 

Dans  cette  perspective,  il  collaborera  avec  le  gouvernement  federal  pour  finaliser  des  ententes  en  matiere 
d'immigration  et  de  developpement  de  la  main-d'oeuvre. 

II  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  veiller  a  ce  que  les  gens  de  metier  et  les  professionnels 
hautement  qualifies  formes  a  l'etranger  puissent  travailler  dans  leur  domaine  ici,  dans  la  province  ou  ils 
ont  choisi  de  s'etablir. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  rendra  hommage  aux  entrepreneurs  qui  travaillent  dur,  creent  de  l'emploi  et 
attirent  des  capitaux.  II  appuiera  leurs  efforts  en  Ontario  et  a  l'etranger. 

II  prendra  des  mesures  pour  appuyer  et  proteger  les  agriculteurs,  ces  travail  leurs  inlassables,  et  pour 
promouvoir  leurs  produits  en  assurant  la  salubrite  des  aliments. 

De  plus,  il  prendra  les  mesures  necessaires  pour  veiller  a  ce  que  la  viande  mise  en  marche  soit  saine. 

Pour  aider  toutes  nos  entreprises  a  fonctionner  dans  un  climat  stable,  votre  nouveau  gouvernement 
assurera  une  distribution  d'electricite  fiable  et  abordable. 

Pour  accroitre  l'alimentation  en  electricite  et  trouver  de  nouvelles  sources  d'electricite,  il  instaurera  des 
maintenant  un  plan  nouveau  et  responsable  pour  l'etablissement  des  tarifs. 

II  donnera  aux  entreprises  et  aux  families  de  l'Ontario  les  renseignements  et  les  outils  dont  elles  ont 
besoin  pour  conserver  l'electricite  -  et  epargner  de  l'argent. 

Les  echanges  commerciaux  avec  les  autres  provinces  et  les  pays  etrangers,  en  particulier  les  Etats-Unis, 
sont  d'une  importance  capitale,  car  notre  economie  en  est  vraiment  tributaire. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  est  deja  entre  en  pourparlers  avec  d'autres  provinces  afin  de  supprimer  les 
obstacles  aux  echanges  interprovinciaux.  II  collaborera  aussi  avec  le  gouvernement  federal  et  divers  Etats 
americains  pour  assurer  la  surete  et  l'efficacite  de  nos  frontieres  et  favoriser  le  commerce. 


24 November  20,  2003 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  s'est  deja  engage  a  aider  les  families  qui  ont  de  la  difficulte  a  joindre  les 
deux  bouts  avant  qu'elles  ne  perdent  tout  espoir.  II  respectera  cet  engagement. 

Pour  la  premiere  fois  en  huit  ans,  le  salaire  minimum  sera  majore. 

Le  gouvernement  proposera  aussi  des  mesures  legislatives  pour  mettre  fin  a  la  semaine  de  travail  de 
60  heures. 

Et  il  interviendra  dans  le  domaine  de  l'assurance-automobile. 

II  a  deja  pris  des  mesures  pour  interdire  toute  nouvelle  demande  d'augmentation  des  taux  d'assurance 
automobile  et  il  cherchera  desormais  a  diminuer  ces  taux. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  sait  que,  si  l'Ontario  veut  reussir  dans  une  economie  mondiale  de  plus  en 
plus  concurrentielle,  il  doit  compter  sur  la  participation  optimale  de  tous  les  Ontariens  et  de  toutes  les 
Ontariennes,  des  plus  jeunes  aux  plus  ages. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  traiter  les  personnes  agees  avec 
respect  et  dignite.  II  commencera  par  adopter  des  normes  elevees  a  l'egard  des  maisons  de  soins 
infirmiers. 

II  collaborera  aussi  avec  les  personnes  handicapees  a  l'elaboration  d'une  importante  loi  qui  leur  permettra 
de  participer  pleinement  a  l'edification  d'un  Ontario  plus  fort. 

Des  collectivites  fortes 

Le  dynamisme  de  notre  province  est  egalement  fonction  du  dynamisme  de  nos  collectivites. 

Et  pourtant,  nos  collectivites  sont  loin  de  realiser  tout  leur  potentiel. 

La  population  veut  que  le  gouvernement  ameliore  la  qualite  de  l'air,  assure  la  salubrite  de  l'eau  et  preserve 
les  espaces  verts. 

Elle  veut  que  les  collectivites  deviennent  plus  agreables,  plus  securitaires  et  plus  dynamiques. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  renforcera  nos  collectivites  et  collaborera  avec  les  autres  pouvoirs  publics  a 
l'elaboration  d'une  nouvelle  donne  municipale. 

II  respectera  1'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  proposer  une  loi  qui  creera  une  ceinture  verte  permanente  dans  la 
region  du  Golden  Horseshoe,  et  il  constituera  une  nouvelle  commission  qui  devra  la  proteger. 

II  proposera  une  loi  pour  mettre  sur  pied  une  regie  des  transports  de  la  region  du  grand  Toronto  qui  devra 
ameliorer  les  transports  en  commun,  reduire  l'engorgement  routier  et  contribuer  a  purifier  l'air  que  nous 
respirons. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  d'interdire  l'elimination  des  boues 
toxiques  non  traitees. 

II  respectera  aussi  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  faire  cesser  l'exportation  de  nos  precieuses  ressources  en 
eaux  douces. 

Enfin,  il  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  dormer  suite  aux  recommandations  du  rapport  O'Connor. 
II  commencera  par  engager  un  nombre  supplementary  d'inspecteurs  de  l'eau  et  il  prendra  des  mesures 
pour  accroitre  la  protection  de  notre  eau  potable  a  la  source. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  interviendra  bientot  pour  remplacer  les  plus  gros  pollueurs  en  fermant 
graduellement  les  centrales  electriques  alimentees  au  charbon. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  encouragera  la  croissance  intelligente  des  collectivites. 

II  proposera  une  loi  qui  iniprimera  une  nouvelle  orientation  a  la  Commission  des  affaires  municipales  de 
l'Ontario  axee  sur  la  promotion  de  la  croissance  durable,  et  non  sur  l'etalement  urbain. 


November  20,  2003 25_ 

II  tiendra  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  d'intensifier  la  croissance  dans  nos  villes  grace  au  reamenagement  des 
friches  contaminees. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvemement  rendra  nos  collectivites  plus  securitaires. 

Des  mesures  supplementaires  seront  prises  pour  proteger  les  femmes  et  les  enfants  contre  la  violence 
familiale  en  ameliorant,  par  exemple,  le  reseau  de  refuges  de  deuxieme  etape  pour  les  victimes. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvemement  collaborera  avec  le  gouvemement  federal  pour  modifier  le  Code  criminel 
afin  que  les  personnes  accusees  degression  aient  plus  de  difficulte  a  obtenir  leur  liberte  sous  caution. 

II  collaborera  avec  les  forces  de  police  pour  mettre  au  point  des  evaluations  de  risques  a  1'egard  des 
personnes  accusees  de  violence  familiale. 

Les  parents  defaillants  seront  tenus  de  s'acquitter  de  leurs  obligations  alimentaires. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvemement  prendra  de  nouvelles  mesures  pour  que  les  enfants  recoivent  ce  dont  ils  ont 
besoin  et  qui  leur  est  du. 

Les  femmes  enceintes  beneficiaires  de  l'aide  sociale  recevront  les  supplements  nutritifs  dont  elles  ont 
besoin. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvemement  proposera  une  loi  pour  proteger  les  locataires  grace  a  des  mesures  reelles  de 
controle  des  loyers. 

Le  gouvemement  felicite  les  dirigeants  municipaux  nouvellement  elus  en  Ontario  et  les  invite  a  travailler 
en  partenariat  avec  lui. 

II  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  proposer  une  loi  qui  permettra  au  Nord  de  mieux  se  faire 
entendre  grace  au  maintien  de  1 1  deputes  representant  cette  region. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvemement  creera  des  conseils  de  developpement  du  Nord  qui  serviront  de  liens  directs 
entre  les  collectivites  de  cette  partie  de  la  province  et  le  ministre  du  Developpement  du  Nord. 

Ces  conseils  auront  notamment  pour  mission,  des  le  debut  de  leur  mandat,  de  trouver  des  facons 
d'encourager  les  jeunes  du  Nord  a  rester  dans  cette  region. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvemement  respectera  l'engagement  qu'il  a  pris  de  gouvemer  pour  toutes  les 
Ontariennes  et  tous  les  Ontariens,  ceux  des  villes  et  des  villages,  ceux  du  Nord  et  du  Sud. 

La  population  a  dit  qu'elle  ne  voulait  pas  que  la  province  soit  divisee  selon  les  regions  ou  les  indicatifs 
regionaux. 

Elle  veut  batir  une  province  dynamique  en  batissant  des  collectivites  dynamiques.  En  s'attaquant  au 
deficit  dont  il  a  herite,  votre  nouveau  gouvemement  consolidera  les  assises  de  son  plan  Creer  des 
communautes  fortes,  qui  prevoit  Amelioration  du  transport  en  commun  et  la  construction  d'un  plus  grand 
nombre  de  logements  a  prix  abordable. 

Un  eouvernement  qui  travaille  pour  vous 

Les  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens  veulent  un  gouvemement  qui  travaille  pour  eux. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvemement  s'est  engage  a  faire  en  sorte  que  l'administration  publique  soit  ouverte, 
honnete  et  transparente. 

II  respecte  cet  engagement. 

Au  cours  de  la  presente  session,  il  proposera  la  plus  ambitieuse  loi  en  matiere  de  renouveau  democratique 
jamais  deposee  en  Ontario. 

Cette  loi  permettra  aux  Ontariennes  et  Ontariens  de  se  faire  entendre  a  Queen's  Park  et  accroitra  la 
transparence  et  la  responsabilite  du  secteur  public  tout  entier,  ce  qui  est  essentiel  a  la  sauvegarde  des 
services  publics. 


26 November  20,  2003 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  a  deja  nomme  un  ministre  responsable  du  Renouveau  democratique. 

II  a  donne  a  chaque  depute  du  parti  au  pouvoir  un  role  au  sein  des  puissants  comites  du  Conseil  des 
ministres  qui  participent  a  rorientation  des  politiques  gouvernementales. 

Dans  les  mois  a  venir,  le  nouveau  gouvernement  donnera  a  tous  les  deputes  la  possibility  d'intervenir 
encore  plus  au  nom  de  leurs  electeurs. 

Nous  nous  attendons  a  ce  que  tous  les  ministres  de  la  Couronne  assistent  regulierement  a  la  periode  des 
questions  et  repondent  de  leurs  decisions  et  de  leurs  actions  devant  l'Assemblee  legislative. 

Le  budget  sera  depose  au  printemps  dans  la  presente  enceinte.  Tous  les  budgets  le  seront.  Et  tous 
refleteront  les  souhaits  et  les  desirs  de  la  population. 

Les  citoyennes  et  citoyens  de  notre  province  sont  mieux  informes  que  jamais.  Votre  nouveau 
gouvernement  leur  demandera  de  lui  communiquer  leurs  idees  et  de  lui  decrire  la  facon  dont  il  pourrait 
mieux  travailler  pour  eux. 

L'Ontario  a  la  chance  de  pouvoir  compter  sur  une  fonction  publique  insurpassable.  Votre  nouveau 
gouvernement  demandera  aux  fonctionnaires  de  lui  communiquer  leurs  idees  et  de  lui  dire  de  quelle  facon 
il  pourrait  mieux  servir  la  population. 

IV.  L'ENVIE  DU  MONDE 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  prendra  les  mesures  qui  s'imposent. 

II  s'attaquera  de  facon  responsable  au  deficit  de  5,6  milliards  de  dollars  dont  il  a  herite,  et  il  y  travaillera 
sans  relache. 

II  a  une  vision  realiste,  mais  optimiste,  de  la  situation. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  sait  ce  qu'il  a  a  faire. 

II  sera  honnete  avec  la  population  et  ne  lui  cachera  pas  les  defis  auxquels  il  fait  face. 

II  sera  assez  responsable  pour  relever  ces  defis,  au  lieu  de  les  fuir,  de  les  dissimuler  ou  de  les  transmettre  a 
nos  enfants  et  a  nos  petits-enfants. 

II  travaillera  aussi  fort  que  les  citoyennes  et  citoyens  qu'il  a  le  privilege  de  servir. 

II  fera  preuve  de  creativite  et  assainira  les  finances  de  la  province  d'une  facon  compatible  avec  les  valeurs 
de  la  population. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  remplira  son  mandat  afin  d'offrir  des  changements  reels  et  positifs  a  la 
population  de  l'Ontario. 

Un  artisan  a  grave  trois  mots  dans  les  boiseries  qui  decorent  la  section  reservee  au  gouvernement  de  la 
magnifique  salle  dans  laquelle  nous  nous  trouvons. 

Ces  trois  mots  signifient:  integrite,  industrie  et  intelligence. 

N'oublions  pas  ces  mots  au  moment  ou  nous  abordons  un  nouveau  chapitre  de  l'histoire  de  la  province. 

Votre  nouveau  gouvernement  croit  fermement  que: 

Nous  pouvons  offrir  l'excellence  pour  tous  et  toutes  dans  le  secteur  de  l'education  publique. 

Nous  pouvons  offrir  les  soins  de  sante  dont  nous  avons  besoin. 

Nous  pouvons  contribuer  au  dynamisme  des  collectivites. 

Nous  pouvons  changer  la  facon  dont  le  gouvernement  fonctionne. 

Nous  pouvons  assurer  la  prosperite  de  notre  economie  et  aider  ainsi  toutes  les  Ontariennes  et  tous  les 
Ontariens  a  realiser  pleinement  leur  potentiel... 


November  20,  2003

Si  nous  sommes  assez  integres  pour  dire  a  la  population  toute  la  verite  sur  les  defis  que  nous  devons 
relever. 

Si  nous  sommes  assez  industrieux  pour  travailler  aussi  fort  que  les  citoyennes  et  citoyens  que  nous  avons 
le  privilege  de  servir. 

Si  nous  sommes  assez  intelligents  pour  nous  rendre  compte  que  nous  ne  pouvons  gouverner  la  province 
que  si  nous  ecoutons  la  population. 

Ensemble,  nous  pourrons  alors  faire  en  sorte  que  l'Ontario  suscite  de  nouveau  l'envie  du  monde  entier. 

Au  travail! 

His  Honour  was  then  pleased  to  retire.

Environmental  Commissioner  of  Ontario  (Sessional  Paper  No.  13). 


The  Speaker  delivered  the  following  ruling :- 

On  November  24,  2003,  the  member  for  Niagara  Centre  (Mr.  Kormos)  rose  on  a  point  of  order  concerning 
the  seating  arrangements  in  the  Chamber.  The  member  objected  that  the  seating  plan  places  the  Rump  — 
that  is,  the  group  of  government  members  who  cannot  be  accommodated  in  the  seats  to  the  Speaker's  right 
~  to  the  Speaker's  left,  between  the  members  of  the  Official  Opposition  and  the  7  members  who  are  not 
affiliated  with  a  recognized  party.  According  to  the  member,  the  Rump  should  have  been  placed  at  either 
end  of  the  left  side  of  the  Chamber,  with  a  view  to  ensuring  that  all  Opposition  members  were  seated  as  a 
bloc  as  opposed  to  being  physically  separated  by  the  Rump.  The  Opposition  House  Leader  (Mr. 
Runciman)  and  the  Government  House  Leader  (Mr.  Duncan)  also  spoke  to  this  matter. 

On  November  25,  2003,  the  member  for  Niagara  Centre  rose  on  a  separate,  but  related  point  of  order.  He 
objected  to  the  characterization  of  himself  and  6  other  members  not  affiliated  with  a  recognized  party  as 
Independents,  and  asked  that  the  group  be  referred  to  as  members  of  the  New  Democratic  Party.  The 
Government  House  Leader  and  the  member  for  Nepean-Carleton  (Mr.  Baird)  also  spoke  to  this  matter. 

I  have  had  an  opportunity  to  reflect  on  what  members  said,  and  to  review  the  parliamentary  precedents 
and  authorities  in  Ontario  and  other  parliamentary  jurisdictions. 

In  response  to  the  first  point  of  order,  let  me  say  that,  for  many  decades  in  this  Chamber  and  in  most  other 
parliamentary  jurisdictions,  the  Whips  of  the  recognized  parties  have  made  the  initial  seating  assignments 
for  members  of  their  respective  parties  shortly  before  the  commencement  of  the  first  session  of  a  new 
Parliament;  the  Speaker  has  then  assigned  the  seats  for  any  other  members.  As  the  member  for  Niagara 
Centre  rightly  points  out,  however,  the  Speaker  has  the  final  say  over  the  seating  plan. 


38  November  27,  2003 

Centre  rightly  points  out,  however,  the  Speaker  has  the  final  say  over  the  seating  plan. 

In  the  case  at  hand,  it  should  be  noted  that  shortly  before  the  commencement  of  the  first  session  of  this 
Parliament,  the  Speaker  approved  the  current  seating  plan,  after  following  the  normal  consultative 
process.  The  question  before  me  now  is  whether  there  is  a  valid  reason  why  that  plan  should  be  altered. 

At  this  point  in  my  ruling,  I  want  to  make  the  following  observations :- 


• 


• 


First,  in  light  of  what  I  have  already  indicated  about  how  seating  assignments  in  this 
Chamber  and  the  Chambers  of  other  parliamentary  jurisdictions  are  traditionally 
made,  the  issue  is  less  the  placement  of  the  Rump  than  the  placement  of  members 
who  are  not  members  of  a  recognized  party. 

Second,  even  if  the  issue  was  the  placement  of  the  Rump,  it  is  not  at  all  self-evident 
that  a  Rump  can  never  physically  divide  Opposition  members.  In  fact,  right  now, 
there  are  three  Canadian  parliamentary  jurisdictions  ~  the  Senate  of  Canada,  the 
Legislative  Assembly  of  British  Columbia,  and  the  National  Assembly  of  Quebec  ~ 
where  members  not  affiliated  with  a  recognized  party  are  not  assigned  seats  that  are 
physically  adjacent  to  other  Opposition  members:  in  each  case,  the  Rump  physically 
separates  such  members  from  other  Opposition  members. 

Third,  references  to  historical  seating  arrangements  in  this  Chamber  have  limited 
relevance  to  today's  circumstances  because  they  pre-date  amendments  made  to  the 
Standing  Orders  and  the  Legislative  Assembly  Act  since  the  1970s.  Those 
amendments  have  had  the  effect  of  enhancing  the  role  of  parties  of  a  certain  size  in 
House  procedures  and  House  administration.  In  previous  Parliaments,  the  member  for 
Niagara  Centre  and  his  colleagues  have  benefited  from  those  amendments.  In  the 
current  Parliament,  they  do  not  benefit  from  these  provisions.  Ultimately,  this  state  of 
affairs  was  not  dictated  by  any  member  of  this  House,  but  rather  by  the  outcome  of 
the  most  recent  general  election. 

Fourth,  before  the  current  seating  plan  was  approved  by  the  Speaker,  members  not 
affiliated  with  any  of  the  recognized  parties  were  allowed  to  be  seated  together  in  one 
bloc  of  seats;  they  were  allowed  to  decide  among  themselves  where  in  that  bloc  they 
wanted  to  sit;  and  they  requested  and  were  allowed  some  seats  in  the  front  row  as 
opposed  to  being  placed  in  the  back  row. 

Fifth,  no  member  is  disadvantaged  by  virtue  of  the  seat  that  the  member  has  in  this 
Chamber.  In  other  words,  every  seat  in  this  Chamber  is  a  good  seat. 


•     And  finally,  the  current  seating  plan  does  not  prevent  any  Opposition  member  from 
collaborating  with  and  consulting  with  another  Opposition  member. 

In  light  of  these  observations,  I  am  ruling  that  the  current  seating  plan  appears  to  be  a  fair  and  reasonable 
accommodation  between  the  rights  of  the  majority  and  the  rights  of  the  minority. 

As  for  the  second  point  of  order,  the  member  for  Niagara  Centre  and  his  6  colleagues  object  to  being 
referred  to  as  "Independents",  the  traditional  parliamentary  moniker  for  members  not  affiliated  with  a 
recognized  party.  According  to  the  member,  they  should  be  referred  to  as  members  of  the  "New 
Democratic  Party". 

I  do  not  take  issue  with  the  member  that  he  and  6  other  members  of  this  House  are  members  of  the  same 
political  party.  However,  they  are  not  members  of  a  "recognized  party"  within  the  meaning  of  the 
Legislative  Assembly  Act  and  the  Standing  Orders.  It  takes  at  least  8  members  to  be  a  recognized  party, 
and  they  are  only  7.  The  Speaker  did  not  create  that  requirement;  the  Legislature  and  the  House  (as  the 
case  may  be)  did,  and  only  they  can  change  it. 


November  27,  2003

Having  said  this,  I  note  that  Speaker  Parent  of  the  Canadian  House  of  Commons,  in  his  June  16,  1994 
ruling,  accommodated  those  members  who  were  not  affiliated  with  a  recognized  party  by  allowing  the 
members  of  one  political  group  to  be  seated  near  each  other  and  to  be  identified  by  their  group's 
traditional  name,  by  allowing  the  members  of  another  political  group  to  be  seated  near  each  other  and  to 
be  identified  by  their  group's  traditional  name,  and  by  then  assigning  other  Independent  members  the 
remaining  seats  according  to  their  seniority.  In  keeping  with  the  thrust  of  that  ruling,  I  too  am  able  to 
make  some  accommodation,  and  so  I  am  ruling  that,  in  this  Chamber,  the  member  for  Niagara  Centre  and 
the  other  6  members  not  affiliated  with  a  recognized  party  may  collectively  be  referred  to  as  the  "Third 
Party".  Further,  since  party  identification  is  permissible  in  certain  Assembly  print  and  electronic 
publications,  such  as  Hansard  and  ONT-PARL,  they  may  be  referred  to  as  the  "New  Democratic  Party"  in 
those  publications  in  accordance  with  usual  practice  and  policy. 

However,  I  want  to  be  absolutely  clear  that  this  accommodation  does  not  confer  any  substantive  rights  ~ 
administrative,  financial,  procedural,  or  otherwise  —  beyond  those  rights  that  an  Independent  member 
already  has.  (For  example,  this  ruling  does  not  confer  on  any  member  of  the  Third  Party  any  status  as 
Leader,  House  Leader  or  Whip.)  In  other  words,  the  Third  Party  is  still  not  a  recognized  party  within  the 
meaning  of  the  Standing  Orders  and  the  Legislative  Assembly  Act.  As  I  have  said,  only  the  House  and  the 
Legislature  has  the  authority  to  alter  the  threshold  needed  for  recognized  party  status. 

I  thank  the  member  for  Niagara  Centre,  the  Government  House  leader,  the  Opposition  House  Leader,  and 
the  member  for  Nepean-Carleton  for  their  thoughtful  and  helpful  submissions.

On  a  point  of  order  being  raised,  the  Speaker  recessed  the  House  for  20  minutes. 

On  his  return,  the  Speaker  delivered  the  following  ruling: - 

I  would  like  to  thank  the  Member  for  Niagara  Centre,  the  Member  for  Nepean-Carleton  and  the 
Government  House  Leader  for  their  submissions  with  respect  to  the  orderliness  of  Government  Notice  of 
Motion  number  13. 

Let  me  say  at  the  outset  that  the  motion  in  question  cannot  be  styled  as  a  time  allocation  motion  within  the 
meaning  of  our  Standing  Orders.  Standing  Order  46  sets  out  the  criteria  under  which  an  item  of  business 
is  eligible  to  be  subject  to  a  time  allocation  motion,  and  not  all  of  the  items  being  dealt  with  in  the 
Government  notice  of  motion  meet  those  criteria. 

In  any  case,  the  motion  on  the  Order  Paper  does  not  purport  to  be  a  time  allocation  motion  at  all  under  our 
rules  as  it  is  not  to  be  moved  under  Standing  Order  46.  However,  a  question  to  be  decided  is  whether  a 
time  allocation  motion  under  Standing  Order  46  is  the  only  vehicle  that  exists  to  order  House  business. 

When  faced  with  a  similar  situation  in  which  no  Standing  Order  existed  to  provide  for  the  timetabling  of 
House  business,  Speaker  Edighoffer  ruled  as  follows  on  January  23,  1989,  as  the  Member  for  Nepean- 
Carleton  pointed  out  in  his  submission:  "[t]he  House  has  adopted  the  Standing  Orders  which  are  the 
permanent  rules  for  the  guiding  and  the  control  of  the  House  in  the  conduct  of  its  business.  The  Standing 
Orders  do  not  form  a  complete  code  of  procedure  for  the  House  to  discharge  its  functions.  They  may  be 
supplemented  from  time  to  time  by  Sessional  Orders  or  special  resolutions  to  facilitate  the  progress  of 
business  through  the  House.  The  Standing  Orders  are  not  safeguarded  by  any  special  procedure  against 
amendment,  repeal  or  suspension.  They  are  passed  by  the  House  by  a  simple  majority  and  may  be  altered, 
supplemented  or  deleted  by  a  simple  resolution  in  the  same  way." 

Speaker  Edighoffer  went  on  to  note  that,  in  1988  in  the  Canadian  House  of  Commons,  Speaker  Fraser 
ruled  that  it  is  always  in  order  for  such  a  motion  seeking  to  set  out  a  special  procedure  to  be  introduced  as 
it  is  always  in  order  for  the  House  to  make  the  appropriate  decisions  relating  to  its  procedures. 

I  concur  with  Speakers  Edighoffer  and  Fraser.  I  do  not  consider  it  fatal  to  the  orderliness  of  a  motion  that 
it  sets  out  a  novel  procedure  for  which  no  specific  Standing  Order  provision  exists. 

Where  such  a  motion  is  brought  before  the  House,  it  must  be  considered  a  substantive  motion  and  subject 
to  the  rules  which  govern  such  motions.  Standing  Order  2  sets  out  these  requirements  in  the  definition  of 
"substantive  motion",  as  follows:  "Substantive  motion  means  a  motion  that  is  not  incidental  or 
supplementary  to  any  other  business  of  the  House,  but  is  a  self-contained  proposal  capable  of  expressing  a 
decision  of  the  House.  Examples  of  such  motions  are:  the  motion  for  an  Address  in  Reply  to  the  Speech 
from  the  Throne,  the  Budget  motion,  want  of  confidence  motions  on  allotted  days,  resolutions  and 
motions  for  returns  or  addresses.  Such  motions  require  notice  and  must  be  submitted  to  the  Speaker  in 
writing  when  moved,  before  being  put  to  the  House  for  debate.  No  motion  shall  be  prefaced  by  recitals  or 
preambles." 

I  am  of  the  view  that  the  motion  meets  the  procedural  requirements  of  Standing  Order  2.  The  motion 
before  us  is  therefore  a  substantive  government  motion,  not  governed  by  debate  under  Standing  Order  46. 

Is  the  motion  otherwise,  though,  abusive  of  the  rights  of  members?  I  have  considered  the  following  issues 
in  arriving  at  a  decision:- 


December  2,  2003 


51 


Debate  on  this  motion  is  not  'artificially'  limited  and  may  continue  for  quite  some  length  of  time,  until 
either  (a)  all  members  wishing  to  speak  have  done  so;  (b)  the  motion  itself  is  time-allocated  under 
Standing  Order  46,  or  (c)  a  motion  for  closure  is  moved  and  permitted  by  the  Speaker.  Therefore,  the 
threshold  for  debate  time  on  this  motion  may  be  more  extensive  than  a  pure  time  allocation  motion. 

Further,  in  reviewing  the  provision  for  debate  time  on  the  6  items,  I  note  they  are  at  least  as  generous  as 
what  recent  history  in  this  Legislature,  under  its  current  rules,  suggests  would  occur  separately  on  each  of 
the  items  in  the  absence  of  time  allocation  motions  or  other  procedures  to  shorten  debate.  If  time 
allocation  under  Standing  Order  46  is  somehow  the  standard,  or  threshold,  or  litmus  test  if  you  will,  then 
this  motion  is  not  lacking  in  that  regard. 

The  motion  provides  one  sessional  day  of  debate  on  an  Opposition  Day  motion,  exactly  what  would  occur 
otherwise  under  Standing  Order  42  (indeed,  the  motion  is  making  provision  for  an  Opposition  Day  debate 
to  occur  when  the  Standing  Orders  otherwise  proscribe  such  an  event). 

The  motion  also  provides  for  one  day  of  debate  on  2  other  motions  -  one  providing  for  the  appointment  of 
the  Deputy  Speaker  and  the  other  presiding  officers  of  the  House,  and  one  simply  providing  for  an  Order 
to  be  placed  on  the  Orders  and  Notices  Paper  to  provide  for  a  debate  on  an  Address  in  Reply  to  the 
Speech  from  the  Throne.  In  my  experience,  and  as  the  records  indicate,  these  motions  have  typically  been 
seen  as  pro  forma  housekeeping  matters  that  have  been  agreed  to  without  any  debate  at  all.  The 
timetabling  motion  therefore  provides  for  more  debate  time  on  these  2  motions  than  has  historically  been 
used. 

Finally,  the  representations  made  on  this  point  of  order  convinced  me  that  there  is  obvious  support  among 
the  vast  majority  of  members  of  this  House  for  proceeding  this  way,  this  time.  The  2  recognized  Parties 
have  indicated  support  for  proceeding  this  way,  and  the  fact  that  this  support  comes  from  both  sides  of  the 
House  is  a  very  significant  element  in  helping  me  to  arrive  at  a  decision  in  this  matter.  While  I  must  take 
into  account  the  rights  and  the  will  of  the  minority,  so  must  the  rights  and  will  of  the  majority  bear  at  least 
equal  weight  in  my  consideration. 

Therefore,  in  the  circumstances  before  us  at  this  time,  and  for  the  reasons  stated  above,  I  find  the  motion 
to  be  in  order.

MERCREDI 17  DECEMBRE  2003 
VINGT-NEUVIEME  JOUR 


PRAYERS  PRIERES 

1:30  P.M.  13H30 

The  Speaker  delivered  the  following  ruling: - 

I  have  had  an  opportunity  to  reflect  on  the  submissions  that  were  made  yesterday  concerning 
developments  in  the  Standing  Committee  on  Finance  and  Economic  Affairs  in  respect  of  its  consideration 
of  Bill  5,  An  Act  to  temporarily  freeze  automobile  insurance  rates  for  private  passenger  vehicles  and  to 
provide  for  the  review  and  regulation  of  risk  classification  systems  and  automobile  insurance  rates  for 
private  passenger  vehicles.

December  17,  2003 


While  our  practice  is  that  matters  that  arise  in  committee  should  be  considered  in  and  disposed  of  by  that 
committee,  I  appreciate  that  the  matter  before  this  particular  committee,  and  the  committee  proceedings 
itself,  were  the  subject  of  a  December  4,  2003  Order  of  the  House. 

The  committee  met  on  the  morning  of  December  15,  2003.  It  convened  again  that  afternoon  and  in  the 
course  of  that  meeting  it  adjourned  for  lack  of  quorum.  In  reviewing  the  December  4,  2003  order  of  this 
House,  I  note  that  it  directs  the  committee  to  meet  for  2  days  to  consider  Bill  5.  I  want  to  point  out  here 
that  committee  meeting  days  are  differently  defined  and  not  necessarily  equivalent  to  "sessional  days".  In 
fact,  in  the  next  section  of  the  House  Order  the  permissive  form  "may"  is  used  in  setting  out  the  times  for 
the  committee  to  meet.  Thus,  meeting  for  any  amount  of  time  within  the  timeframe  established  for  those 
two  days  has  the  committee  acting  in  compliance  with  the  House  Order.  That  it  did  not  meet  yesterday 
afternoon,  does  not  detract  from  the  fact  that  it  met  on  that  day. 

Clearly,  adjourning  for  lack  of  quorum  was  an  unexpected  and  less  than  favourable  outcome  for  this 
committee.  It  does  not  however  in  any  way  abrogate  the  motion  passed  by  this  House  on  December  4, 
2003. 

Having  said  that,  I  want  to  impress  upon  all  Members  that  committee  work  is  a  fundamentally  important 
component  of  our  Parliamentary  process.  A  working  committee  system  affords  an  opportunity  for 
Members  to  become  familiar  with  issues  and  to  understand  more  fully  the  impact  of  proposed  policy 
decisions.  Perhaps  more  importantly,  it  provides  an  essential  liaison  between  we  in  this  place  and  the 
people  we  serve.  All  Members  should  consider  carefully  their  committee  obligations  and  be  vigilant 
about  living  up  to  them. 

I  wish  to  thank  the  members  who  spoke  to  this  matter  for  their  submissions.

The  Speaker  addressed  the  House  as  follows:- 

I  beg  the  indulgence  of  the  House  to  allow  me  to  address  you  briefly  on  the  matter  of  the  presiding  role  of 
the  Speaker. 

Let  me  first  say  that  I  have  been  getting  tremendous  co-operation  from  all  Members  in  my  quest  to 
improve  decorum  in  this  House,  and  I  greatly  appreciate  it. 

As  a  long-serving  parliamentarian  and  a  keen  observer  of  the  proceedings  of  this  House,  I  have  arrived  at 
certain  opinions  with  respect  to  order  and  decorum  and  effective  methods  of  preserving  it. 

While  the  Speaker  is  the  servant  of  the  House,  he  also  has  the  delicate  responsibility  of  maintaining  order 
in  such  a  way  as  to  facilitate  the  business  of  the  House  while  respecting  the  rights  of  all  Members. 

As  Erskine  May  notes,  "it  is  absolutely  necessary  that  the  Speaker  should  be  invested  with  authority  to 
repress  disorder  and  to  give  effect  promptly  and  decisively  to  the  rules  and  orders  of  the  House."  In  this 
regard,  the  Speaker  has  significant  powers.  Among  these  is  the  power  to  "name"  a  member.  It  is  my  view 
that  "naming"  is  the  most  severe  disciplinary  tool  at  my  disposal  and  one  that  should  be  reserved  and 
applied  as  a  last  resort.  It  should  be  held,  not  only  by  the  Speaker,  but  by  the  House  itself,  as  a  profoundly 
serious  consequence  of  disregard  for  the  authority  of  the  Chair. 

It  is  my  opinion  that  the  Chair  has  exercised  the  "naming"  option  so  frequently  in  recent  years  that  its 
effectiveness  has  been  eroded.  In  fact,  at  times  it  has  become  a  method  of  demonstration,  even  garnering 
applause  from  Members  themselves.  When  a  Member  is  named,  it  should  be  understood  that  the  Speaker 
is  exercising  that  option  only  as  a  last  resort  and  that  the  infraction  is  one  that  is  an  affront  not  just  to  the 
Chair  but  to  this  institution  as  well. 


102 March  30,  2004 

Naming  therefore  has  its  unfortunate  place,  but  in  somewhat  less  serious  circumstances,  where  the  firm 
intervention  of  the  Speaker  is  nevertheless  still  required,  I  see  much  merit  in  the  approach  used 
occasionally  by  Speakers  of  this  House,  and  more  frequently  by  Speakers  of  the  Canadian  House  of 
Commons,  as  set  out  in  Marleau  and  Montpetit's  House  of  Commons  Procedure  and  Practice,  as  follows: 

"If  the  Speaker  has  found  it  necessary  to  intervene  in  order  to  call  a  Member  to  order,  he  or  she  may  then 
choose  to  recognize  another  Member,  thus  declining  to  give  the  floor  back  to  the  offending  Member.  On 
occasion,  a  Member  who  is  called  to  order  by  the  Speaker  may  not  immediately  comply  with  the 
Speaker's  instructions;  in  such  a  case,  the  Speaker  has  given  the  Member  time  to  reflect  on  his  or  her 
position  and  upon  the  duty  of  the  Chair,  exercising  in  the  meantime  the  prerogative  of  the  Chair  not  to 
"see"  the  Member  if  he  or  she  should  rise  to  be  recognized." 

In  my  view,  these  other  options,  when  applied  judiciously,  can  be  more  effective  methods  by  which  to 
preserve  order  and  decorum. 

Recently,  I  have  employed  these  methods  in  this  House  and  it  is  my  intention  to  continue  to  do  so. 
"Naming"  will  not  be  my  first  inclination  when  addressing  instances  of  disorder.  Instead,  if  Members  will 
not  heed  my  requests,  I  may  just  move  on  to  another  Member,  as  the  House  witnessed  last  week.  In  other 
cases,  I  may  simply  decline  to  recognize  the  offending  Member. 

In  clarifying  this  matter,  my  purpose  is  to  be  as  effective,  balanced  and  fair  as  possible  in  my  presiding 
role. 

Finally,  I  want  to  say  that  in  hindsight  I  recognize  that  it  may  have  been  prudent  of  me  to  formally  advise 
you  of  my  intent  at  the  outset,  and  I  will  endeavour  to  do  so  in  the  future.
