3.) Disclosure of Pecuniary Interest
Councillor Letkeman declared a conflict with Finnbilt payments under Disbursements.
4.) Petitions and Delegations
a.) Windsor Essex County Health Unit-Smoke Free By-Laws
Mr. Nadalin began the presentation along with Ms. McBeth; Mr. Nadalin went on to highlight
areas of the Smoke Free Ontario Act and the new areas of legislation. Mr. Nadalin also
highlighted restrictions on e-cigarettes. Mr. Nadalin stated that there are currently 139 municipal
by-laws enforcing the Smoke Free Ontario act; as well as 6 local municipalities that have recently
passed by-laws. He then gave examples of County by-laws and areas of restriction. Ms. McBeth
stated that prohibitions and distances around buildings are legislated in the Smoke Free Ontario
Act. Ms. McBeth stated that Pelee may want to look at municipal campgrounds, boat docks and
marinas, as well as beaches, parks and recreation areas. Ms. McBeth also highlighted some
products that are not municipally prohibited such as e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco.
Ms. McBeth spoke about integrating legislation and signage and gave examples of some possible
infractions. She also commented on the role of WECHU such as surveillance for big evets and
investigating complaints.
Ms. McBeth then opened up the floor for questions. Councillor Letkeman asked why smoking
cannot just be banned, Ms. McBeth stated it cannot be completely banned but it is a way to help
denormalize tobacco use and better educate children. Ms. McBeth stated that this presentation
was to make people aware of legislation and that a by-law would assist in providing clarity and
additional protection. Mayor Masse stated that this was a provincial issue, not a municipal issue
and that he did not believe that the community could monitor and enforce the legislation. Further
discussion continued on by-law possibilities and enforcement on the Island.
Mayor Masse asked if any councillors wanted to support moving forward with the by-law.
Councillor Malloch stated that at this time he didn’t believe that the Island currently had the
resources to enforce this by-law. Mayor Masse thanked Mr. Nadalin and Ms. McBeth but stated
at this time no one was in support of moving forward with a by-law.
5.) Old Business
a.) Marina Manager-Seasonal and Transient Dockage Rates
Charlene Malloch addressed a letter that was sent to the Marina asking if transient dockage rates
could be capped at a seasonal rate because there was not a seasonal slip available to the customer.
Mrs. Malloch stated that there were still people on the waiting list that had to be accommodated.
She stated concerns that people may just leave their boat for the season knowing that a seasonal

rate is available and using a slip that could be rented to someone else. Mayor Masse stated he did
not agree with giving up transient slips. Councillor Letkeman asked how many were still on list.
Mrs. Malloch responded that 15 boaters that want power were still on the list. Charlene Malloch
stated 55 of the 105 docks were seasonal. Deputy Mayor DeLellis asked if there could be a quote
for electrical on the east dock. Councillor Letkeman suggested offering Mr. Williams half the
transient dockage rate after he reaches the seasonal cap. Discussion continued on electrical use
and accommodating the waiting list with larger boats.
Councillor Letkeman suggested that for those who have slips and don’t use them consistently,
their docks could be subletted to those that need it. Mrs. Malloch stated it is in their contract, that
if they are not in for 48 hours, their slip can be rented out. Discussion continued on possible
solutions. Councillor Malloch stated that people should be treated equally to avoid showing
favoritism. Mayor Masse agreed that for now Mr. Williams should continue to pay the transient
dockage rates. Deputy Mayor DeLellis suggested offering a non-power slip as a seasonal slip
until a powered dock is available. Mayor Masse stated it could cause a problem if someone is
higher on the waiting list. Mayor Masse asked administration to write a letter of response
denying his request. Councillor Malloch supported directing administration to respond that the
Marina cannot honour his request and to explain the reasoning behind the decision.

10.) Councillor and Miscellaneous Reports
a.) Deputy Mayor DeLellis- Federal Conservative Party Member
Deputy Mayor DeLellis stated that Ken Van Kesteren, a Conservative federal MP candidate
would be coming to the Island. Deputy Mayor DeLellis commented that he would be taking him
around the Island and brining him up to speed on federal needs. Mayor Masse stated it was
critically important to address the North Dock divestiture and that it should be offloaded up to
standards or that there should be funds available to allow it to be brought up to standard. Mayor
Masse also stated that Blue Green Algae should be addressed and that the province is spending a
lot of resources and the federal government should be contributing to a solution. Mayor Masse
also suggested speaking on shoreline protection, as well as the difficulty in applying for federal
grants because the requirements restrict Pelee from qualifying. Councillor Malloch brought up
the leasing issue for the federal portion of the dock and discussion continued on what is
happening with Transport Canada and the divestiture. The CAO stated that the Department of
Fisheries and Oceans is trying to work with Transport Canad. Further discussion continued on
the dock divestiture and ownership.
b.) Deputy Mayor DeLellis-PITSAC
Deputy Mayor DeLellis stated that MTO gave an update on the new boat, and that it seemed to be
on track. Deputy Mayor DeLellis commented that MTO asked Kingsville, Leamington and Pelee
to come together to plan and suggest what should be on the new boat. He further stated that the
Islander was going to dry dock in 2017 and the Jiimaan in 2018, with new boat in spring of 2018
to go into service immediately. Deputy Mayor DeLellis highlighted some of the suggestions
discussed at the meeting including, better communication with the ridership and an electronic
sign at the terminals to warn of changed departures and cancelled boats. Deputy Mayor DeLellis
also stated that MTO and OSTC wanted to come and talk to the Transportation Committee to
discuss parameters to work within for scheduling going forward.
c.) Mayor Masse-Regional Director MNRF
Mayor Masse stated that the Regional Director from MNRF would be coming to Pelee next week
