This is the smoking gun for how the Bloor-Danforth Subway Westerly Extension to Sherway Gardens AND into Mississauga, was KILLED by Hazel McCallion in 1995 for feudal reasons that ignored the greater good of Mississauga and its taxpayers. Resolution No. 77-95, is the weapon and it is clearly in the hand of Hazel McCallion "the Mayor in a letter dated January 26, 1995 to the Minister of Municipal Affairs", by threatening to go to the OMB the Province backed away from these plans and we have all been suffering since!
YES - the Mayor is on the record as defending the limited interests of the business community and not caring about the little people. Not only did this failure in planning by Hazel McCallion & her Council deny Mississauga's a rapid transit link to Toronto it guaranteed Traffic Jams, Grid-lock and more & more pollution from cars - FOR A GENERATION! The big picture is not just about a waste of time and gas locked in traffic jams where even the buses can't move, but the pollution makes the AIR BROWN, which rips the lungs from children. That is the human sacrifice the Queen of Sprawl demands of us and our family for her greater glory! This is what happens when the Mayor is "running the City like a business", her "staff is urged to eliminate red tape" so Mississauga will better serve the needs of business by being "open for business". That is right, serve businesses interest and the community dies slowly from negligence - the true McCallion legacy.
Then there is the issue of how Toronto moved the bus stop for Mississauga buses from inside Islington station to outside in the cold, snow and rain. Again, its Hazel's aggravate indifference to the suffering of Mississauga commuters is clearly shown - remember the Mayor makes a point of driving herself everywhere, so why should she care about poor taxpayers who can't afford to drive?
