Ontario Goes Back on Plan to Dissolve Peel Region

Saying it would have cost taxpayers too much money, the Ontario government has reversed course on the dissolution of Peel Region, which would have seen Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon to stand as independent municipalities.

That’s similar to what Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown has said recently; that the switch would leave taxpayers on the hook for about a billion dollars, with residents being faced with hefty property tax increases.

The Hazel McCallion Act, named after the long-term mayor of Mississauga, was passed by the government earlier this year, but Housing Minister Paul Calandra says they will instead try to find efficiences.

Mississauga’s outgoing mayor, Bonnie Crosbie, said she would like to see the numbers supporting the claim that the costs would be too high.
