Jim talks to radio host John Eaton on The Peak FM

(April 21, 2017) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to join radio host John Eaton on The Peak FM this morning to talk about the redevelopment of the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital. 

 

Home affordability crisis needs addressing

(April 12, 2017) A big issue the Ontario PC Party has heard about in recent years is the rising cost of buying a home and the steep increase in rental rates.


Just the other day in my Collingwood office, a resident came in to say how frustrated her daughter is with high rental rates in the region. The daughter simply can't find an affordable place to live.


This affordability crisis is an issue that is going to grow worse unless the government takes action.


We've seen the government acknowledge the problem but Ontarians have yet to see a concrete plan that will bring them some relief.


As things stand today, thousands of hardworking Ontarians simply can't afford to purchase a home.


Instead, they are forced to rent or stay with family. In some cases, people purchase homes in more affordable areas of the province, but this often means commuting long distances to work.


Overall, we have an unpleasant and unacceptable situation on our hands.


One of the challenges in Simcoe-Grey is the fact supply is incredibly low, which pushes home prices up. This is something touched on by the Southern Georgian Bay Association of Realtors in its March report.


"Overall supply stands at record lows," the association said. "There were just 451 active residential listings on the association's MLS system at the end of March 2017, down 52.1 percent from year-ago levels."


And yet the value of residential transactions in March was $123.5-million, the association said, adding this represents a 47.5 percent increase over March 2016.


Municipal officials at the county level are working hard to alleviate the affordable housing issue in our communities and I thank them for their efforts.


In 2014, the County of Simcoe approved its 10-year Affordable Housing and Homelessness Prevention Strategy.


The strategy aims to ensure a range of affordable housing options for all residents in the county.


Through various planning tools, the county has made a commitment to achieve, "a minimum of 2,685 new affordable housing units throughout the region by 2024."


Still, the Wynne Liberals need to also show leadership on this file.


On several occasions now, our party has encouraged the government to act.


Just the other day, PC Leader Patrick Brown wrote Finance Minister Charles Sousa, demanding the Liberals come up with a meaningful plan that will help Ontarians.


Mr. Brown noted that, "we are concerned that your government's approach to date seems solely focused on taxation measures, rather than looking more broadly at the housing sector and all the potential challenges and solutions."


He continues, saying that: "Many of your government's policies have contributed to the challenge we are facing today, including the additional land transfer tax and added red tape in the housing sector."


Ontario's housing affordability crisis will require the government to address both supply and demand.


As Mr. Brown noted in his letter to Minister Sousa, "It will also require the expertise of individuals in all areas of the industry, not just conversations behind the closed doors of the Premier's office."


Our party is calling on the government to make a commitment to address supply, including the red tape and regulatory burden, which both limits the supply of new housing, and increases carrying costs which are passed on to consumers.


We are also asking the government to address demand.


And we are asking for a review of the government portfolio immediately, to determine how many vacant residential properties the province owns in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area.


Finally, we are calling on the Liberals to establish a panel of industry experts – including professional planners, builders, mortgage professionals, realtors, and municipal representatives – to develop both short and long-term solutions to address Ontario's housing challenges.


I will continue to advocate on your behalf on this matter as it's one of great importance. Today, for many, the dream of home ownership is just that – a dream.


We can do better.

VIDEO: Wilson presents Collingwood Hospital petitions

(April 12, 2017) Yesterday in the Ontario Legislature, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to present the first round of petitions collected by the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital. The petition calls on the government to provide the necessary funding to build a new hospital to serve the needs of the community.

 

Petitions are available on this website and in Wilson’s offices. They are also being distributed to various businesses in the area. Please stop by and add your name to this important campaign. 

Government needs to finish Highway 26 work in Collingwood

(April 10, 2017) One of my proudest accomplishments as your Member of Provincial Parliament was getting approval for the Highway 26 realignment project between Wasaga Beach and Collingwood.

This new controlled-access highway has greatly improved transportation safety in our community.

When the project was announced in the early 2000s, my party was still in power and we saw the importance of doing this work.

Unfortunately, after the 2003 provincial election, the Liberal government of Dalton McGuinty stopped the project for several years. It was partisan politics at its worst and a dark period for all of us in the north end of the riding.

Residents will recall we collected 10,000 signatures on a petition that demanded the government finish the highway.

It was only after lobbying efforts by local residents, municipal politicians, and after I raised the matter on many, many occasions in the legislature, that the Liberals agreed to move ahead and finish the highway.

The new section opened in 2012, but a small piece of the project remains outstanding to this day.

Municipal and provincial officials know it as Phase 3, which involves widening the highway to five lanes, between the Sixth Line and Pretty River Parkway, and extending Sandford Fleming Drive.

Sadly, the Liberals are again dragging their heels and it remains unclear when they will get to work on this part of the highway.

I've written to the Minister of Transportation several times and urged the government to get the job done. I have also spoken with Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca. And, last week I questioned the government on the issue.


However, it appears common courtesy has gone out the window as I can't get a response from the government.

Such silence is disrespectful to the people of this community. I would never have exhibited that type of behaviour in the years I served as a minister.

As things stand now, Highway 26, between Sixth Line and Pretty River Parkway, is a non-divided two-lane road, without sufficient turning lanes.

Town of Collingwood officials are frustrated that the highway project has once again ground to a halt.

And I'm not impressed with the situation, either.

Municipal representatives, in a briefing note to the provincial government, state the present situation, "creates serious problems for traffic flow, as well as our secondary routes, as many drivers try to find alternate ways to access...Collingwood."

As well, the town notes there are "numerous safety concerns that arise from the sudden convergence of so much traffic into a much narrower road. Access on and off the two-lane section of highway is another serious safety concern. Cars must wait a long time for gaps in the traffic and cars waiting to turn are often passed on the right hand shoulder. Manoeuvring on and off this two-lane section is tricky and dangerous at times."

We've all seen the problems outlined by the town.

Given how often the government touts the importance of road safety, you'd think they would address this section of Highway 26 sooner than later.

The government's inaction is also holding up job creation and economic development.

Once the highway work is complete, and Sandford Fleming Drive is connected to the new section of highway, significant commercial development in that area can proceed.

This development will result in the creation of more than 70 jobs.

This issue with the highway has been unresolved now for five years and that's totally unacceptable.

People expect better from the government. I know I certainly do.

I've raised this issue in the Ontario Legislature and I will continue to press the Liberal government to get the job finished.

Liberals won’t commit to finishing Highway 26

(April 6, 2017) With Premier Kathleen Wynne glad-handing across Simcoe-Grey today, MPP Jim Wilson rose in the Ontario Legislature and asked the government when it will finish the Highway 26 project at the eastern entrance to Collingwood.


After opening the main part of the new highway in 2012, the Liberal government put phase 3 of the project on the backburner, inconveniencing the town and local businesses.


"By not completing the five-laning of Highway 26 at the east end of Collingwood, the province is holding up job creation and economic development. If this section of highway was completed, the town could extend Sandford Fleming Drive to Highway 26, a move that would spur significant commercial development in the area," Wilson said in the legislature today. "This government has failed to do its job, so I ask, when will the minister commit to finishing this section of Highway 26, and will he state when the work will take place?"

However, Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca did not give Wilson a straight answer. And when Wilson pressed him on the matter, the minister again did not give a direct response.

"I'm hopeful after the premier's visit to the riding today, that she'll understand the need for completing the Highway 26 phase 3," Wilson said after Question Period. "I hope this doesn't go down in history as another project the Liberals can't get right."

Wilson calls on government to finish Highway 26

(April 4, 2017) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson is calling on the provincial government to finish the last leg of the new Highway 26, at the east end of Collingwood.


During a Member's Statement in the Ontario Legislature yesterday, Wilson said the delay in finishing the work is holding up job creation and economic development.


"Today I'm calling on the province to pay for and finish the five-laning into town and extend Sir Sandford Fleming Drive through to Highway 26, a move that will spur significant commercial development in the area," Wilson said. "This development will result in the creation of more than 70 new jobs."


He said the issue with the highway has been unsolved now for five years, saying that is totally unacceptable.


"I've written to the minister on several occasions about this matter but apparently common courtesy has gone out the window as I can't seem to get a response," Wilson said. "Enough is enough. The time for the government to finish the job is now."
