The use of the word "wins" is the best way to describe how Hazel McCallion likely see it. She won it by playing a game and not eraned it by living a good and decent life. Just a game with rules that were made to be broken.

Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion has been appointed as a Member of the Order of Canada. The announcement was made last month by Adrienne Clarkson, Governor General of Canada. Mayor McCallion will receive her Insignia of Member of the Order of Canada in a ceremony at Rideau Hall with the Governor General at a yet to be determined date.
McCallion has served as the Mayor of Mississauga since November 1978. She is the longest serving Mayor in the City's history and has been honoured with several awards including the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany (Germany's highest honor). Other prominent Canadians who were named to the Order of Canada along with Mayor McCallion include jazz pianist Diana Krall, two-time Olympic Gold medalist Catriona Le May Doan, and the late broadcaster Peter Jennings. The Order of Canada is awarded to Canadians who have made a recognizable difference to the country. It was established in 1967 and is Canada's highest honour. An appointment as a Member of the Order of Canada recognizes an individual who has made an exceptional contribution to Canadians at a local or regional level.
