Environmental Improvements in Malton

Today we celebrate Earth Day, and what better time to mention some of the natural improvements that are coming to Malton? 

  • I have heard from many residents who want to see changes to the planters along Airport Rd. These will be replanted by the Region to bring more life to this important road.
  • We'll be doing a property standards by-law swoop to clean up businesses and unsightly signs along Airport Rd. and Goreway Dr.
  • LED lights are being installed throughout Malton to reduce energy use and maintenance expenses. LED sockets are also being installed in the poles on Goreway Dr. and Airport Rd. to facilitate illuminated Christmas decorations.
  • Improvements to Malton Village Park on Beverley St. have begun!

As always, I welcome your comments at or 905-896-5500. I look forward to hearing from you!

With thanks,

The City has many events planned across Mississauga to celebrate Earth Day.

I was with the Forest Heights Residents' Association on April 18 for a tree planting and will be attending the One Million Trees event at the Iceland Arena on April 25.

Milk at Mt. Zion Food Bank

Last week I bought a new refrigerator for Mt. Zion Food Bank, replaced their deep freeze and stocked them with milk.

Funds for the donations came from the Mississauga Milk Fund, the fundraising project I started in 2013 to provide hungry kids in Mississauga with fresh milk.

Canadians for Clean Prosperity

Did you know that most coffee cups and potato chip bags sold in Ontario can’t be recycled? It’s time to fix our broken waste system. Why? 

Because the people who make our products aren’t responsible for recycling them – and so despite the fact that coffee cups can be recycled, most coffee cups end up in landfill. This is just one example of how our waste system is broken: garbage is increasing, costs for taxpayers are sky-rocketing, and there is no incentive for producers to create less waste.

Join Canadians for Clean Prosperity and sign the petition.
