    A new legal defence it was the sign post's fault or "an errant street sign".  According to my dictionary "errant" means - "wandering", "going astray", "doing wrong" and/or "moving aimlessly".  So clearly this media organization is saying the signpost is at fault and the FEISTY Mayor of Mississauga, Hazel McCallion showed she means business to all obstacles in her path and street signs that were in the wrong place at the wrong time.  She RUNS them down or into them as best she can, to show them who is boss-lady!  I wonder if Mississauga City Council will follow up on this to allow other important drivers to run over street signs they think are in the wrong places or get in their way?  Maybe it can be applied to running over "errant" pedestrians.  Hay, it is not my fault, they were in the wrong place at the wrong time!

    This serious traffic accident is being treated as a joke by the media.

Pulse 24 - City TV - Apr. 27, 2006

Narrow Escape

Nothing much gets in Hazel McCallion's way.

Except, it seems, an errant street sign.

The Mayor of Mississauga ran into one of those roadside markers Wednesday night, as she was coming home from a Peel Police Awards ceremony at the Mississauga Convention Centre.

The 85-year-old politician, who always insists on driving herself to appointments, was turning onto Cantay Rd. from McLaughlin Rd. when her car struck the signpost at about 9:30pm.

The impact was great enough to deploy the vehicle's airbags.

"I don't have a scratch, a bruise or anything, nothing, absolutely nothing,," she told 680 News. "Because, you know, I certainly wasn't going at a high speed by any means."

Police and paramedics descended on the intersection but the Mayor was able to get out of her car on her own. She was examined at the scene, but aside from being a bit stunned by the crash, she was okay.

The front end of her car, however, wasn't. It sustained substantial damage.

McCallion admits she played a role in the mishap. "I took my eye off the road for a minute," she agrees. "There's no question about it."

But there are questions about whether police will be laying any charges against the local legend.

"That is all under investigation at this time," is all Peel Police P.C. Kathy Weylie will say.

Because of McCallion's high profile, Peel's Chief of Police has asked Traffic Services to investigate this case. Until they finish that probe, they're refusing to say anything about what might have happened.

It's not the first time McCallion's been involved in a car accident. She was slightly hurt after being hit by a pickup truck in 2003.
