J. Motions

 

K. Notice of Motion

 

K.1 Bird-Friendly Standards

 

Moved by Regional Councillor Heath, seconded by Regional Councillor Li:

Whereas research indicates that across Canada, 25 to 30 million birds are killed annually by collisions with buildings;

Whereas the majority of these deaths are preventable; Whereas birds are an indicator of ecological health and provide ecological services such as pollination and insect control, while generating millions of dollars through the bird watching industry;

Whereas the City of Markham has implemented bird-friendly guidelines and requirements of bird-friendly design and is fulfilling recommendations of the Markham Greenprint Sustainability Plan;

Whereas municipalities across the province are adopting similar strategies in their communities;

Whereas the Ontario Architects Association supports province- wide standards to regulate this growing conservation issue;

Whereas it is now an offense under the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) to emit reflected light that kills or injures birds. Building owners and operators across the province seek direction on how best to mitigate this leading cause of bird death;

Whereas The Regional Municipality of York needs to demonstrate leadership in the protection of birds;

Therefore be it resolved that staff report back regarding the implementation of bird-friendly standards for The Regional Municipality of York by the end of June 2018.
