Wilson wants government to stop unaffordable electricity rate increase

(June 12, 2017) – Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson wants the government to stop a planned increase in electricity distribution rates.

Hydro One recently put forward an application to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) to increase rates for electricity consumers. An average family would see its bill increase by $141 per year.

“Ontario families can’t afford this electricity rate increase,” Wilson said. “We know the Liberal government plans to increase rates after the election, now they’re also going to do it before the election.”

Patrick Brown, Leader of the Opposition, recently wrote Premier Wynne a letter asking the government to stop the increase.

“This hydro rate increase, which begins January 1, 2018, is extremely unfair and unaffordable,” Brown wrote. “I am urging you to immediately reject this application and all subsequent applications, until executive compensation is reined in at Hydro One and the government has stopped signing expensive, new, unneeded power contracts.”

Last week, Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault said he does not intend to use his authority to stop the unaffordable rate hike.

“I’m not going to ask them to consider rejecting anything,” he said during an interview on AM980.




VIDEO: Wilson pleased with support for hospital resolution

June 1 2017 pmb hospitals 2 WEBSITEJune 1 2017 pmb hospitals 1 WEBSITE

(June 1, 2017) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson today was pleased by the government’s response to his private member’s resolution calling for the immediate approval of planning grants for hospital re-development projects in Collingwood and Alliston.

The resolution received support from all three parties in the legislature.

“I want to thank my constituents who came to Queen’s Park for the debate today and thank all those who signed petitions in support of the hospitals,” said Wilson. “Today was an important day for both hospitals. The government has recognized it is time to move these projects forward. I pleased with the support my resolution received and look forward to the next step in the process.”

Wilson said there is still a long way to go in the process.

“I want to thank the government for recognizing the need for the re-developments, but until the cheques are sent I’m going to keep the pressure on,” said Wilson. “I encourage constituents to continue writing letters, sending emails and signing petitions. We’re not out of the woods yet.”

Close to 100 constituents from the two communities came to Queen’s Park to see Wilson’s speech on the matter.  Stevenson Memorial Hospital President and CEO Jody Levac and Collingwood General and Marine Hospital President and CEO Guy Chartrand were in attendance.

Both thanked Wilson for his support and help with the two hospital projects.

“Today is a monumental day thanks to Mr. Wilson galvanizing our two communities,” said Levac. “It’s our turn.”

“It’s all about continuing to build awareness and moving the file forward,” said Chartrand.

Before the vote, Wilson spoke about both hospitals and praised volunteers and staff for their commitment and hard work on behalf of the facilities.

“Each of these hospitals is staffed by incredibly caring, talented and well-educated individuals,” Wilson said. “And, they are supported by legions of dedicated volunteers.”

Wilson said the time has come to move the projects to the next phase.

“These facilities were built in the 1950s and 1960s. The infrastructure is old and outdated and badly in need of redevelopment,” he said. “This is not about partisan politics. This is about planning for the health care needs of Ontarians into the future.”


Jim attends Matthews House cheque presentation

Flato Hospice Donation May 2017 3 WEBSITE

(May 30, 2017) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to be in Alliston yesterday for a Matthews House Hospice cheque presentation. Mr. Shakir Rehmatullah, President of Flato Developments, gifted Matthews House $150,000 to go towards their “Walking the Journey Together” Capital Campaign.

Campaigning for our local hospitals

(May 25, 2017) As you have likely heard by now both the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital and Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston are working toward redevelopments of their respective facilities. Both hospitals have done an excellent job and I commend the management and staff alongside the community for their diligence and so far great success. 


At this point both hospitals have completed Stage 1 of the approvals process.  They both have the support of their respective Local Health Integration Networks. And they are both preparing for the next stages of the five-part approvals process.


But, the fact of the matter is this: there is an elephant in the room and it is the Kathleen Wynne Government.  The reality is that until the provincial Liberal Government agrees to provide the required funding there is very little that can happen to get our hospitals built.


Politically, we are doing all the right things. There are petitions circulating in each community. If you haven’t signed one yet I urge you to stop by the hospitals or any of my office to add your name to the list. I have also written letters, raised the issue in the Ontario Legislature on many occasions, and on June 1st, I will be debating a Private Members’ Resolution that calls upon the Liberal Government to approve the planning grants.


The Resolution reads as follows:


That, in the opinion of this House, the Minister of Health should immediately approve the planning grant requested by the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital in the Town of Collingwood; and, the planning grant requested by Stevenson Memorial Hospital in the Town of New Tecumseth allowing both hospitals to proceed respectively with much needed redevelopments.


If you are still interested in joining us at Queen’s Park that day I ask that you please let the hospital or my office know.  Buses are being organized by both hospitals.


We all want to see our hospitals redeveloped as soon as possible and that is why I continue to urge everyone to flood the Liberal Government with petitions, emails and letters so that they know that our community is united and serious about these projects.  The Premier can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by mailing a letter to Queen’s Park, Toronto, ON M7A 1A8. You can also email Minister Hoskins at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or writing him at the same address as above.


Healthcare needs to be a top priority for our governments. It also needs to be equal across the province. There is a real need for both hospitals in our respective communities and I am confident that if we keep the pressure on we will be successful. Let’s not let the Kathleen Wynne Government make us wait any longer.


It’s time our hospitals are moved to the top of the province’s priority list.  

Wilson continues to fight for service clubs

(May 17, 2017) Today in question period, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson again asked the government what they have done to remove the regulatory barriers and burdens facing service clubs in communities across the province. He has been lobbying the government on the issue since 2015.


“Mr. Speaker, in February 2015 my Private Members’ Resolution concerning service clubs received all-party support in this House,” said Wilson. “The government sent my request to the Standing Committee on Social Policy for a mere one half day of hearings; the committee issued a summary of recommendations, and since then we have heard nothing despite my repeated requests for action on the issues raised by service clubs.”


Wilson remains concerned the government has not yet struck the all-party committee that was called for in his original resolution despite their pledge of support for it and the release of the summary of recommendations he referred to in his question. He hopes his query today reminds the government of the importance of this issue.


In the supplementary, Wilson’s colleague, Parry Sound—Muskoka MPP Norm Miller, spoke about issues service clubs in his riding are still experiencing as a result of the government’s inaction.



Jims meets with OPPA

VIDEO: Wilson introduces Merchant Navy Day Act, 2017

 (May 5, 2017) On Thursday, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to introduce legislation that, if passed, will designate September 3rd in each year as Merchant Navy Veterans Day in Ontario. Before introducing the legislation, Wilson spoke to a reception of Second World War veterans and various representatives of veteran and military organizations who were at Queen’s Park for a tribute ceremony in the legislature earlier in the day. 

“Canada’s Merchant Navy played a critical role in the war effort, carrying desperately needed equipment, fuel, goods, and personnel to Europe and around the world,” said Wilson.  “These brave men and women did this vital job without recognition to ensure the freedom and democracy of not only our country but around the world.”

Wilson continued, “…a total of 12,000 men and women served in Canada's Merchant Navy, more than 25,000 merchant ship voyages were made during the war. More than 70 Canadian Merchant ships were sunk by enemies, and over 1700 Merchant Mariners lost their lives.”

Wilson’s legislation echoes legislation passed by the Government of Canada that also proclaims September 3rd in each year as Merchant Navy Veterans Day. The federal legislation was tabled in 2001 by the Member of Parliament in Simcoe-Grey at the time—Mr. Paul Bonwick.  It subsequently passed in 2003.

Other provinces including, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have made similar proclamations in their respective provinces to help bring awareness to merchant navy veterans.

“I would also like to recognize and commend the late Mr. Jack Stapleton, a former Wasaga Beach resident and navy veteran, for inspiring the initiative federally, and Mr. Stephane Ouellette, President and CEO of the Merchant Navy Commemorative Theme Project for continuing to promoting the significance of September 3 across Canada,” said Wilson.
