Message from Peter Milczyn, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore

The following message, to which I have added some headings, for ease in reading online, is from Peter Milczyn, the MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore:

 

Dear Neighbours,

This is my first e-news to you as your Member of Provincial Parliament. While I am still settling in to this new role there is in fact a great deal of business being done at Queen’s Park.

The Legislature was recalled on July 2, 2014 and the 41-st Parliament of Ontario began sitting. This day was the official swearing-in ceremony of the 107 MPP’s elected across the Province.

Throne Speech

On July 3 Lieutenant Governor David Onley read the Throne Speech.  The Throne Speech represents the Government’s plan for the coming session of Parliament.  You can read the text of the Throne Speech here:  http://news.ontario.ca/opo/en/2014/07/building-ontario-up-speech-from-the-throne.html

The four key priorities of the Government in the Throne Speech are: a plan to build on the talent and skills of Ontario’s workforce, a plan to build the modern infrastructure Ontario needs, a plan to support a dynamic business climate, and a poverty reduction strategy.  The Throne Speech was approved by the Legislature after several days of debate on July 11, 2014.

Ontario Budget

On July 14 Ontario Finance Minister the Honourable Charles Sousa, introduced the 2014-15 Budget which is the same proposal as was tabled prior to the June 12 election. A $133 Billion dollar spending plan, focussed on ensuring strong healthcare, education, jobs training, and continued investments in infrastructure across the province. The budget document can be found here: http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/budget/ontariobudgets/2014/

Parliamentary Assistant to the Honourable Brad Duguid

I also have been busy with hiring staff, setting up my constituency and Queen’s Park offices, undergoing orientation on the rules and procedures of the Ontario Legislature and the Ontario Government. Premier Kathleen Wynne appointed me to serve as the Parliamentary Assistant to the Honourable Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure with my specific responsibility being Infrastructure. In this role I will be assisting with issues such as the co-ordination of $130 Billion of infrastructure spending, the Provincial Growth Plan, and Waterfront Toronto among others.

Meetings with Constituents

I have also been meeting with Constituents on both their personal matters but also on issues such as funding for the Stonegate Community Health Centre, and the Kipling Mobility Hub. In the coming weeks I will be meeting with various residents and groups to continue the work of representing the people of our area as I had done on City Council for many years.

In the coming weeks and years I will update you on my work for you at Queen’s Park, in the riding, as well as various important local issues and events.
