Live 2022 Mississauga municipal election results for mayor, council, and school board trustees
Published October 24, 2022 at 11:20 pm
Mayor Bonnie Crombie successfully defended her seat in decisive fashion, cruising to victory against seven challengers to earn a third-straight term in office at the helm of Canada’s seventh-largest city.
First elected to the City of Mississauga’s top job in 2014 after receiving a coveted endorsement from popular outgoing mayor Hazel McCallion, Crombie was decisively re-elected in 2018.
Crombie faced seven other candidates in tonight’s election: Mohsin Khan, Melodie J. Petty, Derek Ramkissoon, David Shaw, Bobie Taffe, George Tavares and Jayesh Trivedi.
As expected, she faced little opposition en route to victory.
The race was called for the incumbent just before 8:30 p.m.
With 100 per cent of polls reporting, Crombie led the pack with 82,736 votes. Closest to her was David Shaw, with 7,202 votes.
Elsewhere, there are four new faces preparing to take council seats when City business resumes in November.
Among them is Joe Horneck, who handily defeated incumbent Ron Starr in the Ward 6 race. Horneck lost to Starr by just over 300 votes in 2018.

Mississauga is made up of 11 wards, and this year, two long-time councillors are not seeking re-election. There is also no incumbent seeking reelection in Ward 2, as former councillor Karen Ras resigned in early 2022 after her vehicle was vandalized by fellow councilmember Ron Starr. Starr, whose pay was suspended 60 days following an investigation by the city’s integrity commissioner, has denied any wrongdoing.
In February, Mississauga city council voted to appoint former city councillor Pat Mullin to fill the Ward 2 seat until the election.
Ward 9 Councillor Pat Saito and Ward 11 councillor George Carlson both announced their retirement earlier this year. Some candidates for Ward 9 include Peel District School Board trustee Nokha Dakroub, former MPP Bob Delaney and Peter McCallion, a real estate professional and son of former mayor Hazel McCallion.
Other candidates include Chacko Athanasius, Isaiah Bryant, Scott E.W. Chapman, Frank Fang, Len Little, Nicholas Rabba, Martin Read (who has been endorsed by Saito) and Mohammad Shabbeer.
