Mississauga city council voted Wednesday to study a proposal brought forward by Mayor Bonnie Crombie that would see the city separate from Peel Region.
Crombie says the review will look into long-standing issues about whether or not Mississauga should continue to be part of Peel Region, which also includes Brampton and Caledon.
“It’s time that we control our own destiny,” said Crombie. “Hamilton, London, Sudbury, Ottawa are all single tier. Why is Mississauga, with 800,000 people, still in a two-tier government.”
If the study supports such a move, citizens would be asked to vote on it as part of a referendum in the 2018 election.
This is not the first time that Mississauga has entertained the idea of leaving the region.
