Mississauga News - June 10, 2010 - Letter by Janet Seabrook, Mississauga
Time to retire
People across the city were pleased to see Mayor Hazel McCallion accept an Honorary Degree from the University of Toronto. She was obviously thrilled. With that very satisfying and sweet moment, she should now announce her retirement.
We could congratulate her and then move into a good municipal election campaign to elect a new mayor. But for that to happen, Mayor McCallion has to step aside now to ensure a smooth transfer for our next elected leader.
It is most important that the mayor take this step now based simply, and respectfully, upon a realistic assessment of human demographics.
Mississauga has more than 700,000 people now and only about 4,300 of those citizens are women over the age of 85, according to the 2006 Census. The mayor is 89.
We wish the mayor all the best that is for sure, but should she run again and be elected, she would be 93 by the time the next municipal election rolls around.
Statistically, something serious is very likely to happen to the health of all individuals in the mayor’s (age bracket) between 2010 and 2014. These events are often sudden, life-changing and permanent. It’s just a fact of life; there is nothing personal or negative intended, here.
Surely, the mayor wouldn’t want the City to be thrown into a sudden power vacuum. It is time for her to take a bow and let the citizens of Mississauga set the course for our future.

My sides hurt
ConcernedResident is so funny: REPOST 1 DUE TO ANTI-TRUTH TROLLS! Obviously he has NO self-awareness whatsoever, or he is simply not embarrassed by his own hypocrisy, or probably both. Anyway, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so thanks ConcernedResident!

i agree that its time for her to retire, in fact i think she shouldve retired a while ago before this whole judicial inquiry because unfortunately thats how she will be remembered. more unfortunate though is if she were to retire, there are very few suitable candidates for mayor.
