Justin Trudeau has earned himself an important endorsement in the 905 region.
Former longtime Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion sat down to talk to Global News and says Justin Trudeau has the best platform.
McCallion’s blessing carries a lot of weight in the area. Hazel said she would stay out of the Mississauga mayor’s race when she left politics last year and most poll has Steve Mahoney with a slight lead over eventual winner Bonnie Crombie. Hazel eventually endorsed Crombie as her choice and she won handily.
McCallion also endorsed Toronto mayor John Tory and Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals in Ontario.
McCallion served 44 years municipally including 36 years as Mississauga’s mayor and negotiated with eight prime ministers for more federal investment in her community.
