Did you vote for this?
Whether you’re for or against Mississauga’s secession from the Region of Peel, is not the issue. For a decision that could impact us all for generations to come, residents of Mississauga must be given the opportunity to make an informed decision. We need time independent studies/analyses and public consultation in order to make an informed decision. Not one council member, including the mayor or the Premier of Ontario, ran on this platform and thus has no mandate. The deadline that has been imposed on us is utterly meaningless, arbitrary and capricious.
Our elected officials serve at the behest of the people. They need to represent our views in a more democratic way.
We need our City officials to stand up to the provincial government on our behalf. That is their job. We want the Province to slow down this process and provide an independent transparent report to the residents of Peel Region.
