REQUEST FOR LETTER OF SUPPORT: Mary Muter and Paul Cowley of the Georgian
Bay Great Lakes Foundation provided Council with an update on Georgian Bay
Water Levels and requested a letter of support and funding for their work. The
funding request is to the Federal Ministry of Innovation, Science and Industry to
continue its research and to retain the consulting firm of W.F. Baird to develop
a model of the St. Clair River in terms of stabilization and water retention in the
middle lakes. Their request to Tiny’s Council for $10,000 funding is to be
considered during the 2023 Budget deliberations.
TWO COMMITTEES OF COUNCIL MERGE: The Parks and Recreation Advisory
Committee and the Tiny Trails Active Transportation Committee have been
amalgamated as the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee (PRAC).
MOVEMBER CAMPAIGN: Deputy Mayor Walma asked for Council’s support in initiating
a friendly competition with the City of Toronto in fundraising efforts for the 2022
Movember campaign in support of men’s health initiatives. Last year the Township’s
Fire Department raised over $65 K, placing 1st out of all fire departments in North
America (Toronto Fire Services finished 2nd). Staff was directed to formally challenge
Toronto Fire Services to a fundraising competition and Tiny’s Fire Chief was instructed
to challenge Toronto’s Fire Chief Pegg to a “friendly” competition in the name of men’s
health and mental health awareness.
