VIDEO: ONE on ONE with Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie
While Mississauga’s substantial population hasn’t grown exponentially over the past decade, the city itself has gradually become more bustling, diverse and urbane. Once a suburban bedroom community known for sprawling subdivisions, the city is now home to numerous sleek high-rise condos (and 46 more have been proposed for the City Centre area alone) and is set to embark on several massive redevelopment projects.
Although Mississauga was always closely associated Hazel McCallion, the locally famous mayor who ran the city from 1978 until her retirement in 2014 (she’s turning 98 next month), Bonnie Crombie, the city’s current mayor, has earned praise for driving the urbanizing city forward.
On election night in 2019, Mississauga saw incumbent Mayor Bonnie Crombie sail to an easy—and expected—landslide victory. According to the City of Mississauga, voters cast 91,422 ballots for Crombie, leaving her with about 77 per cent of the vote.
Crombie was running against seven opponents.
Recently, Crombie appeared in inSauga.com’s studio to talk to Khaled Iwamura, the founder and publisher of inSauga.com, about the LRT, Doug Ford, leaving the Region of Peel, cannabis, crime, street checks, affordable housing and subways.
