SPECIAL DEBATES – OPPOSITION DAY

DÉBATS SPÉCIAUX – JOUR DE L’OPPOSITION

4. Ms. Scott — That, in the opinion of this House, the Ontario Legislature should make it clear that sexual harassment will not be tolerated as it violates our fundamental values and that our culture is at a turning point - by acting now, and supporting this important dialogue, we can catalyze change and build a safer and more equitable workplace environment for current and future generations; and, that a select committee should be established no later than December 4, 2014 to make recommendations on combating sexual harassment in the workplace and protecting victims from further harm; and

That in developing its recommendations, the committee shall focus on the following issues: (1) why people, mainly women, are reluctant to report incidents of harassment in workplaces across Ontario. (2) why victims fear that they will be ostracized, that they will suffer professionally, and most of all, why they fear that they will not be believed; and, (3) preventing the further victimization from occurring after the harassment or assault with the unjust treatment of the victims and a chronic failure to hold perpetrators to account.

As such, this committee will be comprised of two members from each of the recognized parties, and that the committee have the ability to conduct their meetings in camera, to ensure that women feel supported and can maintain anonymity as they share their stories. Furthermore, the committee should hear from experts, then make recommendations regarding the development of best practices to prevent sexual harassment and, when it occurs, to address it in a way which supports and respects the victims; and

That the committee shall have the authority to conduct province wide hearings and undertake research, and generally shall have such powers and duties as are required to develop recommendations on a comprehensive strategy to combat sexual harassment in the work place and protect victims of sexual harassment from further harm; and

That the committee shall present an interim report to the House no later than June 4, 2015, and a final report no later than October 29, 2015.

Addressed to the Premier. To be debated Wednesday, November 26, 2014.

That in developing this strategy, the Minister should:

• Consider the availability of current laboratory tests and protocols to support clinical diagnoses, and specifically the efficacy of currently-available diagnostic mechanisms in Ontario compared to other jurisdictions;

• Evaluate the publicly-funded services and treatments available to Ontarians, with a view to improving the availability and accessibility of effective services and treatments within the province to provide optimal patient outcomes;

• Recognize the importance of health promotion, disease prevention, and early intervention in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease;

• Consider the role of the Government of Ontario and local public health agencies in conducting tick surveillance and tabulating case numbers of Lyme disease; and

• Include any related issues that, in the view of the Minister, deserve or require consideration.

That in developing this strategy, the Minister should engage and consult with representatives of the healthcare community and patients' groups, including the Ontario Medical Association, the Ontario College of Family Physicians, the Association of Local Public Health Agencies, the Ontario Lyme Alliance, the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation, international scientific advisors and medical experts in the field of tick-borne diseases having diverse perspectives, workers' organizations and veterinary associations, amongst others, and accept written submissions from Ontarians; and

That the Minister should table the Lyme Disease strategy in the House by no later than one year after the passage of this Motion. Filed November 24, 2014.
