Seconded by:

Whereas City Council at its meeting of April 10, 2012 adopted a resolution in part that the City of Oshawa undertake a fact video to go on City YouTube and Facebook giving the impacts that could follow if the ethanol plant were to be built adjacent to the sensitive Second Marsh, McLaughlin Bay Wildlife Reserve, Darlington Provincial Park, the beautiful Lakeview Park and Oshawa's only beach and accessible waterfront; and

Whereas the City of Oshawa and the Region of Durham supports the development of the Oshawa Port but is opposed to the creation of an ethanol refinery at the Oshawa Port; and

Whereas the Townsh ip of Brock is a wi lling host for the location of an ethanol plant thereby retaining jobs in Durham Region; and

Whereas a decision to enable the development of an ethanol refinery at the Oshawa Port now primarily rests with the newly created Oshawa Port Authority (OPA); and

Whereas the OPA is a valued business partner and an essential economic catalyst to advance development and create jobs thereby ensuring that Durham Region businesses can compete on the world stage; and

Whereas it is recognized that the OPA desires an anchor development to foster and support continued and sustainable business growth at the Port.

Be it resolved that the strategy outlined by Mayor Henry at the meeting of City Council, April 13, 2012 to partner with the Oshawa Port Authority (OPA) and Durham Region to attrac# economic development alternativi'to an ethanol refinery that will complement

the business objectives of the OPA, and respect the environmental sensitivities of the surrounding area be endorsed and MP Colin Carrie and Minister Jim Flaherty be requested to support this initiative.
