Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie met with Premier Kathleen Wynne at Queen’s Park earlier this week where they “discussed important priorities for the people of Mississauga including the Mississauga Light Rail Transit (LRT) plan, and ways to generate economic development opportunities to attract new investments and create jobs.
“Premier Wynne reiterated her commitment to break gridlock and make important investments in public transit for Mississauga,” Crombie said following the meeting.
Earlier, Wynne released a statement aimed at the province’s Black community offering her “sincere best wishes for a memorable and inspiring Black History Month.
“Black History Month offers the opportunity for all Ontarians to learn more about the remarkable social, cultural, and economic contributions that African Canadians have made and continue to make to our province. It also offers an ideal opportunity to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of African Canadians — and to learn from the struggles and resilience of the many African Canadians who have helped define our province,” she said.
“This month is a time to reflect on the human experience and aspirations that we all share – and to acknowledge the caring and compassionate society we are building together. I encourage all Ontarians to reflect upon the experiences of the Black pioneers who have gone before us – and on the achievements and triumphs of those who are making their mark today.”
