Let's get Mississauga moving

Transportation is one of the biggest challenges facing Mississauga. In the coming month, there are some important meetings and events that you can get involved with to have your say about the City's transportation plans. I encourage you to attend and let your voice be heard.



McLaughlin Road, 
Public Meeting May 9

The City is investigating a widening of McLaughlin Rd. between Bristol Rd. and Britannia Rd. 

On May 9 at 9 a.m. at St. Gertrude Separate School (815 Ceremonial Dr.), there will be a public meeting to learn more about the environmental assessment and an opportunity to express any comments or concerns about the project. I look forward to seeing you there.

Freedom Passes

Youth aged 12-14 can travel for free on MiWay in July and August, plus get free admission to public swims at City pools.

Apply soon! There's a limited number of Freedom Passes available.

Transitway Open House

I'll be taking a look at the Mississauga Transitway's Dixie Station on June 7 during its Open House. Join me to learn more about the Transitway and how it plays into the City's transit plan.

Funding for Hurontario LRT

The Hurontario-Main Light Rail Transit (LRT) Project, which will run from Port Credit to Brampton, received a commitment of full provincial funding last month.

National Public Works
Family Fun Day

Join us as we celebrate Family Fun Day at Celebration Square on May 23!

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.
