‘Now is the time to say no, stop’: the PCs have forgotten Ontario was once the land that was ‘Yours to discover’ 

‘Now is the time to say no, stop’: the PCs have forgotten Ontario was once the land that was ‘Yours to discover’ 

The deeply disturbing behaviour of the provincial government over the last four years swept across Ontario’s electorate with blinding speed. In four years Doug Ford and his PC colleagues managed to undo longstanding environmental protections that once made Ontario a beacon for other governments racing to save their most valued natural spaces.

June 2 is the last chance to stop incendiary actions pushing the province to the edge of environmental ruin.  



Transparency needed around BILD, the massive lobby group funded by the development and construction industries that controls much of our local planning

Transparency needed around BILD, the massive lobby group funded by the development and construction industries that controls much of our local planning

Caledon advocate and former federal candidate for the Green Party Jenni Le Forestier has doggedly held her local elected officials accountable for the damaging decisions some have made while doing the bidding of powerful developers who dictate so much of the local planning across the 905. She believes taxpayers need to be given far more information about the powerful industry lobby group that dictates more and more of the decision making around how their communities are being shaped.



Sheref Sabawy didn’t speak much in Ontario’s 42nd Parliament

Sheref Sabawy didn’t speak much in Ontario’s 42nd Parliament

The MPP for Mississauga—Erin Mills had a quiet four-year term, seldomly standing to speak in Queen’s Park. When he did, his riding was rarely mentioned and he almost never spoke about the most pressing issue in the area— affordable housing.

He instead focused on the need to recognize more international credentials and degrees to help open the post-pandemic economy by taking advantage of skilled immigrants. 



Amarjot Sandhu ‘A puppet to the premier’

Amarjot Sandhu ‘A puppet to the premier’

Brampton West’s Amarjot Sandhu was nothing short of a disgrace in the eyes of many constituents: charged and convicted for operating illegal basement apartments; failing to show up for an official Remembrance Day ceremony and taking votes that hurt residents in his riding who expressed shock at the treatment by their elected representative. Sandhu had a record of inaction on a wide range of Brampton’s central issues including healthcare, police carding and auto-insurance discrimination.



Brampton South: Where needs & political support clashed under Prabmeet Sarkaria

Brampton South: Where needs & political support clashed under Prabmeet Sarkaria

For Brampton South residents there is a drastic divide between their priorities and the recent representation inside Queen’s Park.

As soon as he won their support in 2018 Prabmeet Sarkaria made it clear, he was not loyal to the constituents who put him in office, he would instead follow whatever Doug Ford and the PC Party told him to do. He refused to support desperately needed healthcare expansion in his own city, he pushed Highway 413, and ignored postal code discrimination in the auto-insurance sector.



Prabmeet Sarkaria: An ally of Doug Ford & his highway agenda

Prabmeet Sarkaria: An ally of Doug Ford & his highway agenda

Elected in 2018 to represent Brampton South for the Progressive Conservatives, Prabmeet Sarkaria was a firm ally of Doug Ford, toeing the party line.

He refused to support desperately needed healthcare expansion in his own city, he pushed Highway 413, did little to advocate for more local resources during the pandemic and would not support 10 paid sick days for the essential workers in his own riding. 



Rental affordability and climate action on the minds of Mississauga—Erin Mills voters

Rental affordability and climate action on the minds of Mississauga—Erin Mills voters

The area located in the northwest part of the city has long been a big draw for new Canadians, offering a tight-knit community feel, expansive parks and trails.

But as the abundant housing supply that kept coming online reached a point of saturation demand drove up prices and the rental market outpaced supply. Housing affordability in the area is a big issue ahead of Thursday’s election.



Dr. Brooks Fallis: Brampton should reject the Ford government on June 2

Dr. Brooks Fallis: Brampton should reject the Ford government on June 2

The city’s ongoing healthcare crisis has been well documented. For four years the Ford government, including its two Brampton PC MPPs, Prabmeet Sarkaria and Amarjot Sandhu, failed to respond to the medical needs of the city’s 700,000 residents. Brampton suffered some of the worst infection rates in the country through the first three waves of the pandemic, while per capita resources for testing were among the lowest in Ontario. Meanwhile, demands to build a second full-service hospital with at least 850 acute-care beds were ignored, as Ford instead funded a massive new hospital in Mississauga. The former head of critical care at Brampton Civic Hospital says the city's voters should reject the Ford PCs on Thursday.



Youth unemployment in Mississauga—Malton a key issue for backbencher Deepak Anand

Youth unemployment in Mississauga—Malton a key issue for backbencher Deepak Anand

The incumbent regularly spoke up at Queen’s Park on community issues in Malton.

While Anand often claimed to advocate for his constituents he generally voted along PC lines even for legislation that impacted the riding negatively, and, beyond empty words, he seldom took the lead on many of the most pressing issues facing constituents in Peel. 



Brampton East: A riding split over a highway

Brampton East: A riding split over a highway

With the promise, or threat of Highway 413 on the horizon, Brampton East residents will get to choose between candidates who want to see the sprawling 400-series corridor built just above their community and those committed to stopping the project before it starts.



Brampton’s healthcare crisis, education funding & insurance discrimination were high on Gurratan Singh’s first-term agenda

Brampton’s healthcare crisis, education funding & insurance discrimination were high on Gurratan Singh’s first-term agenda

During Gurratan Singh’s term as Brampton East MPP he was one of Ontario’s most outspoken legislators, regularly fighting for measures to end postal code discrimination within the auto insurance sector, advocating for better healthcare funding in his city along with a host of other priorities he brought to the forefront.  



Mississauga—Malton needs MPP who will help repair fractured relationship between riding’s diverse community and police 

Mississauga—Malton needs MPP who will help repair fractured relationship between riding’s diverse community and police 

As the most diverse area of Mississauga, the complex dynamics of policing a multicultural community unfold every day. On June 2, voters will be looking to put their X beside a candidate who understands how Queen’s Park can work to heal the trust that has been broken between Malton and Peel Regional Police. 



Mississauga East—Cooksville needs a leader to champion public transportation

Mississauga East—Cooksville needs a leader to champion public transportation

The riding is home to more residents who take public transportation in Mississauga than any other area, making a key issue the Dundas bus rapid transit line which runs directly through the riding.

Public transportation in the riding has seen heavy investment with a portion of the future Hurontario light rail transit system, and voters want to see funding continue to make transit more accessible. Better long-term care in an area with a large population of seniors is also a main focus of residents. 



Seniors and affordability the main focus of Kaleed Rasheed’s four-year term

Seniors and affordability the main focus of Kaleed Rasheed’s four-year term

Kaleed Rasheed stuck close to what his constituents wanted and advocated on their behalf during his rookie term as an MPP. Mississauga East—Cooksville was mentioned often during the first half of his term when he spoke in the legislature, highlighting the need for more affordable housing in his booming region and advocating for supports to assist seniors in his riding.

But after receiving a ministerial portfolio midway through the term his local advocacy fell off.

Two high-profile candidates are making the Brampton Centre race too close to call

A hotly contested provincial riding between the NDP and Progressive Conservatives, with incumbent Sara Singh facing a fierce challenge from Brampton City Councillor Charmaine Williams, makes Brampton Centre one of the most interesting races to watch in all of Ontario.



Healthcare and education were a focus for Brampton Centre’s Sara Singh throughout her first term

During her term representing Brampton Centre at Queen’s Park, Sara Singh was an advocate for smaller class sizes, climate change mitigation strategies and action to increase healthcare capacity in the City of Brampton. 



Overdose deaths in Peel have risen 249% since 2014, Region prioritizing efforts to battle opioid crisis; lack of funding for mental health supports has left a deadly gap

Overdose deaths in Peel have risen 249% since 2014, Region prioritizing efforts to battle opioid crisis; lack of funding for mental health supports has left a deadly gap

It’s becoming increasingly clear how badly Peel’s social services have been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, and how long it could take to recover.

Reports related to a lack of funding for mental health and addictions in Peel detail how only one in three residents will get the help they need in a time of crisis, as work on the opioid strategy was stalled during the pandemic. Overdose deaths have continued to increase but when will regional councillors take responsibility for funding critically needed social services they have neglected for years?

Councillor Rowena Santos to be investigated by Integrity Commissioner for alleged harassment of staff

A motion by Brampton Council has resulted in a referral to the Integrity Commissioner to investigate Councillor Rowena Santos, after questioning of a staff member around the processes surrounding the controversial Brampton University project led to claims that she harassed a senior employee, Gurdeep (Nikki) Kaur.



Economic development was high on Nina Tangri’s agenda during 42nd Parliament, the environment not so much

Economic development was high on Nina Tangri’s agenda during 42nd Parliament, the environment not so much

Over her last four years in office the elected representative for Mississauga—Streetsville focused on how to keep small businesses afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even before, Tangri regularly mentioned and supported legislation to benefit businesses and the local economy, hoping to grow jobs. When appointed associate minister of small business and red tape reduction, she dove deeper into the economic development file. But her record on the environment, like her Party’s, was out of step with residents who make the connection between climate change and the economy.

PC highway plan will destroy the Greenbelt’s natural capital, polls show vast majority of Ontario residents don’t support it—environmental groups demand a ban 

Doug Ford is calling his campaign bus the “Yes Express”, a play on his campaign promise to “say yes” to new infrastructure for a prosperous future. The environment, on the other hand, will suffer dearly under his plans. 

A coalition of environmental groups is calling on Ford and all party leaders to ban highways through the Greenbelt—by altering the legislation that governs the protected greenspace.

Liberal candidate for Brampton East muddies the water on Party’s plan to scrap Highway 413, says it will ‘definitely’ be built

The Ontario NDP, Greens and, until recently, the Liberals have been very clear about where they stand on the PCs environmentally destructive Highway 413 project—if elected, the 400-series highway proposal will be relegated to the scrap heap. 

But over the last two weeks, a Liberal candidate in Brampton East has drawn criticism for claiming the Liberals only plan to delay the project and will “definitely build the highway”, a departure from the position of her Party. 



Taxpayers ‘duped’ out of $630K for BramptonU, councillors say; forensic audit ordered after firms linked to Patrick Brown and Rowena Santos received contracts

Taxpayers ‘duped’ out of $630K for BramptonU, councillors say; forensic audit ordered after firms linked to Patrick Brown and Rowena Santos received contracts

A forensic audit was ordered Wednesday by Brampton council to look into the mishandling of $629,000 for the failed Brampton University plan, following a staff report showing much of the work was never received and some of it arrived 17 months late, while at least one of the two firms was not qualified for the lucrative job.

Questions have also been raised about the quality of the work that was done.



Protecting small businesses & transit service dominate Mississauga—Streetsville race

Protecting small businesses & transit service dominate Mississauga—Streetsville race

Streetsville has long been a big attraction for visitors from across Ontario, drawn to the village’s historic charm and heritage features. The small businesses housed in some of the oldest buildings in what’s now called Mississauga, are the lifeblood of the area.

The next MPP elected to represent Mississauga—Streetsville’s residents and local entrepreneurs will have a clear mandate: protect this jewel that has thrived for more than a century. Better transportation in and out of the quaint riding is also a growing concern candidates will have to address when knocking on doors.



In one of the city’s oldest communities, which candidate will best manage Mississauga—Lakeshore’s population boom?

In one of the city’s oldest communities, which candidate will best manage Mississauga—Lakeshore’s population boom?

Mississauga—Lakeshore is in the midst of a massive waterfront transformation, one of the largest redevelopments in the entire country. Ahead of the June 2 election the race is close, as residents decide between candidates who will help steward an era of unprecedented change. With all the new developments along Lake Ontario, who will help create communities that feature a range of housing options, offer a wide choice of transportation and include all the key provincial services such as healthcare and education?  



Mississauga—Lakeshore’s Rudy Cuzzetto advocated strongly for seniors, healthcare and against taxing carbon

Mississauga—Lakeshore’s Rudy Cuzzetto advocated strongly for seniors, healthcare and against taxing carbon

Over four years in the provincial legislature, Rudy Cuzzetto often spoke multiple times during Queen’s Park sessions.

He advocated for his riding of Mississauga—Lakeshore and the issues that concern his constituents, such as a lack of supports for seniors, access to frontline healthcare and funding to help businesses and residents during the pandemic. Some of the files he is most engaged with, like protecting manufacturing jobs, are woven into the history of the area.

Sven Spengemann steps down as MP for Mississauga—Lakeshore to rejoin United Nations, triggering by-election 

Only eight months after being reelected to a third term in office, Sven Spengemann is leaving federal politics. In a statement posted on Twitter, the MP announced he will be resigning effective May 28 and taking up a position with the United Nations.

Spengemann’s vacancy triggers a by-election in the riding to be held in six months leaving over 100,000 residents temporarily without direct representation in Ottawa.

A riding up for grabs: party leaders make early visits to Brampton North in effort to win swing voters 

In the relatively young, politically ambiguous riding of Brampton North, Ontario’s big party leaders are all making significant moves for a seat they clearly see as ready for the taking. 

With just over 50 percent of the registered voters turning up to cast a ballot in 2018, a significant get-out-the-vote effort to mobilize residents could be the difference on June 2.

Patrick Brown’s game of thrones―exploit immigrant communities & divide religious minorities

Subverting the CPC leadership race by trading memberships for empty promises, is how Patrick Brown plans to inflate point totals for the September 10 election, using a loophole he admittedly exploits. He treats unwitting Canadians seeking political representation like pawns in his dangerous game.

Peel collective demands provincial aid to fix systemic issues in education, public safety, healthcare; Ombudsman declines to investigate allegations at Brampton City Hall 

Despite numerous complaints, the Ontario Ombudsman will not be investigating allegations of corruption and mismanagement made public last year; in a letter to council, senior counsel for the Ombudsman cites the fact that many of the senior staff identified in the allegations are no longer working for the City. 

A collective of over 40 organizations is calling on Doug Ford and other provincial leaders to make equitable funding for education, healthcare and public safety in Peel a priority after the June election. 



Will environmental concerns threaten a PC stronghold?

Will environmental concerns threaten a PC stronghold?

The riding of Dufferin-Caledon has been held by the PCs for decades.

But with more residents placing environmental concerns at the top of their priority list, and a large section of the Greenbelt that runs through the riding at risk from Doug Ford’s Highway 413 plan, could these issues be enough to swing voters on June 2?



Does 17-year sentence for Brady Robertson set standard for fatalities caused while driving high, and raise the bar for alcohol-related deaths?

Does 17-year sentence for Brady Robertson set standard for fatalities caused while driving high, and raise the bar for alcohol-related deaths?

The man responsible for the crash that killed a Caledon mother and her three daughters has been handed one of the steepest sentences for impaired driving in Ontario’s history, marking a potential turning point for the courts to impose stricter penalties on those getting behind the wheel while impaired. 

Speaking outside the court after the sentencing, family members of those killed in the crash said no sentence would have been strong enough.

Now public, full report details anti-Black discrimination across City of Brampton departments

Conducted over the past two years by Williams HR Consulting, the full 62-page report examining working conditions inside Brampton City Hall shows anti-Black issues in various departments across the country’s ninth largest municipal government.

The review, which was finally made public this week, despite being submitted to the since fired CAO in December, provides disturbing insights into the experiences of many Black employees.

Mainstreet Research poll shows all 6 Mississauga ridings likely to remain blue after June 2 Ontario election

The polling company is conducting daily surveys to provide voters with up-to-date information about trends in their community and across Ontario ahead of the provincial election.

According to Mainstreet’s work, prospects are not looking good for the Liberal Party, after it held every seat in Mississauga before losing all of them to the PCs in 2018. The company’s polling suggests a repeat four years later.



Days after cementing Peel’s environmentally destructive growth plan, staff report shows lack of action on climate change a ‘cause for concern’ 

Days after cementing Peel’s environmentally destructive growth plan, staff report shows lack of action on climate change a ‘cause for concern’ 

Peel’s official plan, approved by council at the end of April, opens up nearly 11,000 acres of farmland and greenspace for future development, locking in development on land desperately needed to mitigate the impacts of climate change. 

Now, a report has been released stating that Peel’s lack of action on climate change is compromising its climate mitigation goals—putting public health and infrastructure at considerable risk.

Peel needs to scale up climate action ‘considerably’; highly paid BramptonU consultants tied to Patrick Brown and Rowena Santos failed to deliver work 

An update on the Region of Peel’s climate strategy reveals that across the board, the municipality is failing to take action fast enough to reach its council-approved targets. 

At the City of Brampton, an alarming new report reveals that almost half of the work consultants were paid for on the maligned BramptonU project was never delivered.

Don't Look Up—Peel’s growth plan is not ‘balanced’, it’s a gift to developers that threatens the natural world

Relying on faulty reasoning, misleading information and a short-sighted “vision”, Peel councillors approved a plan to unlock nearly 11,000 acres of land in the region for growth over the next three decades.

The give over to developers completely disregards science that connects poor land-use planning with climate change, and goes against every environmental policy the Region has previously approved.

Victor Doyle: Ford government is squandering the future of the Golden Horseshoe

The architect of the world’s most comprehensive piece of legislation aimed at protecting one specific ecologically vital greenspace says Doug Ford and his PC government are turning back two decades of progress. 

Ontario’s Greenbelt Act, passed almost twenty years ago, is a master plan to ensure we grow sustainably, avoiding the pitfalls of sprawl, congestion and economic suffocation created by the developer-driven policies Ford is hell-bent on pushing through. 



Mississauga gets cracking on urban agriculture strategy to address food insecurity & climate change

Mississauga gets cracking on urban agriculture strategy to address food insecurity & climate change

Everyone has the chance to become a farmer, all residents need are some soil, seeds and patience. The City of Mississauga is hoping to harness momentum on its urban agriculture strategy encouraging more people to grow their own food. Allowing a pilot for backyard hens is one piece of the puzzle to see if food insecurity and greenhouse gas emissions might be simultaneously tackled by the rapidly spreading urban agriculture movement.

Probe of Brampton City Hall finds anti-Black racism & ‘culture of fear’

An independent review that was conducted over the past two years by Williams HR Consulting Inc. reaffirmed what advocates have been saying for years: that the City of Brampton has developed a “culture of fear” for Black employees, with Black and racialized staff concentrated at lower levels of the organizational hierarchy and most Black and racialized participants in the review sharing personal experiences of differential and discriminatory treatment.

Misuse of 911 on the rise in Peel; Mississauga moves forward with plan to grow urban agriculture sector

The rise of smartphones has created a world of ultimate connectivity, but it’s also created countless complications when these devices are used to accidentally dial emergency services. Calls to 911 in Peel are on the rise, and the number coming into operators that are not bonafide emergencies is also increasing.

Meanwhile, in Mississauga a strategy to boost urban agriculture is nearing final approval as the City looks to address food insecurity and climate change in one swoop.

Stellantis announces production of electric vehicles at Brampton plant; multibillion dollar investment secures thousands of jobs in the city

After years of uncertainty for more than 3,000 autoworkers in Brampton and thousands more across Peel who rely on the giant assembly plant that produces two of the best selling muscle cars still on the market, an electric life line has been handed to the facility.

Workers are breathing much easier after Stellantis, which owns the Dodge and Chrysler brands, committed to a green future in Brampton, with the help of hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal and provincial governments, part of the automotive sector’s rapid transformation away from internal combustion vehicles.

Peel is a key battleground heading into June 2 election 

In one month, Ontarians will flock to the polls to decide whether the PCs have done enough to earn a second term in government.

Candidate slates for the big parties have filled out across Peel and leaders have been campaigning while making all sorts of announcements, trying to secure as many of the 12 local seats that could mean the difference between another majority government, four years of minority rule or, perhaps, a new party in power.

What role did race play in the move to replace NDP MPP Kevin Yarde as a candidate? 

Kevin Yarde, Brampton North MPP, has left the NDP to sit as an independent until the completion of his term after losing a rare nomination contest for the upcoming June 2 provincial election. Incumbents usually are protected from any challenge to run again for their party.

The first Black member to represent Peel Region at Queen’s Park has now been replaced on the NDP slate by a man who says he’s a human rights activist.

Peel approves urban expansion into nearly 11,000 acres of farmland and green space

Sticking to their dubious claim that the Province is forcing their hand, on Thursday Peel councillors voted to unlock nearly 11,000 acres of green space and prime farmland for future development. 

The meeting, which stretched over four hours, saw members of the public continue to share their opposition to the plan and question why the Region is rushing to approve it before the provincial election, even though some councillors suggested they need more time.

Crown wants 23-year sentence, defence just 7 for Brady Robertson who killed a Caledon mother and her 3 daughters while driving high

This week a judge heard sentencing arguments in the impaired driving case for Brady Robertson, who faces imprisonment for killing a Caledon mother and her three young daughters. 

Justice Sandra Caponecchia listened to Crown and defence arguments and will now decide on a sentence. Robertson was driving on a Brampton street with at least eight times the legal limit of THC, the active ingredient of cannabis, in his blood, going about 70 km/h above the speed limit when he violently crashed his car into the young family’s vehicle, killing them.
