Bill Walker, The newly-elected MPP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, says he is ready to tackle the challenges facing his constituents when he takes his seat at Queen’s Park for the very first time on November 21.
On top of Walker’s legislative agenda will be tabling a resolution that will call on the government to stop the jail closures in Owen Sound, Walkerton and Sarnia pending a full public review and consultations with the local stakeholder groups.
He will table the motion with the Clerk of the House on Tuesday.
“The government hasn’t justified the closure yet,” says Walker, adding he plans to invite the correctional services minister to tour the Owen Sound jail and see this corner of rural Ontario. “This government needs to understand how every job and every employer here count, especially at a time when half a million Ontarians are without work.”
He will also support an NDP proposal to remove the harmonized sales tax (HST) from home heating bills when it comes up for debate and votes next week.
“My constituents support this move, I support it, and my party made it a vital part of our platform during the election,” he says. “Heating a home isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity, especially in our country – and as such it should not be subject to the extra taxes. It’s wrong.”
Other priorities on Walker’s agenda are calling for stronger municipal powers over wind turbine development and getting the new Markdale Hospital on the health minister’s priority list.
“To the best of my knowledge, we will have a bill before the House in early December that will address the lack of local control over green energy, and I look forward to supporting it,” says Walker.
First priority for MPPs on Monday will be to elect a new speaker, and on Tuesday to hear the Throne speech.
The House is expected to sit until Dec. 8 before the MPPs break for Christmas. Walker says he’ll keep busy over the holidays with his own stakeholder meetings in the riding with the agriculture, manufacturing and small business sectors.
