Moving forward in Malton

I hope you and your family had an excellent summer and a chance to relax before the start of a busy fall! As always at this time of year, please be extra cautious behind the wheel - especially around school zones.

I'm very excited about some of the changes we have coming to Malton in the near future, as well as some of the changes you may have already seen. Next month, we'll hear the results from the MyMalton project. I look forward to seeing your collective ideas put into action. Learn more about the session below.

You'll also find information about windrow snow removal assistance for seniors and people with disabilities, and an opportunity to share your opinion about speed limits in Mississauga.

As always, please be in touch with my office for any questions or concerns you may have.


MyMalton Session

On October 1 we'll learn the results from the MyMalton visioning sessions and survey at the Malton Community Centre. It will be great to learn about your vision for your community, then put a plan into motion to make those visions a reality!

Keep an eye on my website for when the meeting time is confirmed, or learn more about the MyMalton project here.

The Mississauga Milk Fund's biggest event!

I started the Mississauga Milk Fund in 2013 to buy fresh milk for food banks across the city. 

I'm happy to say that the most recent event, An Evening with Bond, was the most successful one to date, raising enough money to buy tens of thousands of litres of milk for families in Mississauga.

We've started plans for the next Milk Fund event in 2016 - if you're interested in sponsorship opportunities, please email David Mosley - davidmosley@rogers.com - for information.

Registration for the City’s Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program is open for seniors and people with disabilities to help clear snow at the end of driveways during road plowing.

Ward 5 Resident Recognized by the Queen

Aaron Joshua Pinto, a 24-year-old Ward 5 resident, received a Queen's Young Leader Award at Buckingham Palace last month. The award recognizes young leaders who work to improve the lives of others in their communities.

Aaron's accomplishments are impressive - starting his own non-profit to help abuse survivors, monitoring parliamentary elections in Ukraine in 2014 and co-organizing a youth summit - Mobilizing 22 - earlier this year.

My heartiest congratulations go to Aaron on this honour! Read more about this impressive Mississaugan here.

Have your say about speed limits in the city

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation is reviewing the speed limit for local roads. The current default limit in Mississauga and Ontario is 50km/h where there are no signs posted in urban areas.

The province is looking at four options within urban areas:
1. Maintain the 50km/h default speed limit
2. Reduce the default speed limit from 50 to 40 km/h
3. Allow cities to set a limit of 40 or 50 km/h with the posting of a sign at each entry point to the city
4. Allow cities to set a different default limit in neighbourhoods with the posting of a sign at each entry point.

What do you think is the best option? Complete the City's Speed Limit Survey to have your opinion heard.
