BREAKING: Bonnie Crombie Wins Second Term as Mayor of Mississauga


Published October 23, 2018 at 12:43 am


Back in 2014, Mississauga’s mayoral election was a little less predictable, as Hazel McCallion had officially retired, opening the floor to other candidates for what seemed like the first time in over 30 years.

After winning a much-coveted endorsement from Hurricane Hazel herself, Crombie became mayor of the city, beating out Steve Mahoney to become leader of the sixth largest city in Canada.

Four years later, Crombie has won a second term.

The win makes sense for a number of reasons.

Firstly, Crombie didn’t have much competition. Although speculated that former PC party leader and one-time regional chair hopeful Patrick Brown might jump into the race (along with popular entrepreneur Mohamad Fakih and former finance minister Charles Sousa), no high-profile candidates chose to challenge Crombie for Mississauga’s top job.

Secondly, Crombie has a solid record. Under Crombie’s watch, the city has moved forward on the $1.4 billion provincially-funded Hurontario Light Rail Transit, the massive M City condo development and the Port Credit and Lakeview redevelopment projects.

It’ll be interesting to see where Crombie takes the city over the next four years.
