Please take a moment to sign the petition to urge the Province of Ontario to ban modified mufflers that create excessive noise
I recently put forward a motion at both the City of Mississauga and Peel Regional Council to ask the Province to enact further amendments to the Highway Traffic Act to directly target loud and modified exhaust systems.
Vehicle noise from street racing and aggressive driving go hand in hand. That, combined with modified emission control systems can create the “perfect storm” for vehicle noise related issues.

- Despite the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic last year, City of Mississauga staff managed to raise over $100,000 for United Way Greater Toronto.

- While some of us may feel that the worst of the pandemic is over, many of our friends and neighbours are still feeling its impacts deeply and face job losses, food insecurity, homelessness and more. We reached out to Mississauga’s own Vee Clarke and Avery Cartwright from the City’s Central Library’s Open Window Hub to let you know more – please watch Part 1 of our 4 part video series here or go to our United Way homepage to see all the videos.

Metrolinx is continuing to advance planning for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor, based on key findings in the Dundas Connects Master Plan and the Metrolinx Initial Business Case. The purpose of the Dundas BRT project is to evaluate the proposed transit corridor along a 48 kilometre (km) stretch of Dundas Street from Highway 6 in the City of Hamilton through to the Kipling Transit Hub in the City of Toronto, linking Etobicoke and Mississauga City Centres. More than 20 km, of the 48 km BRT, will operate in bus lanes or in a dedicated right-of-way, separate from other traffic, allowing faster and more reliable transit connections.
Please join us on September 22, 2021 at 6:30pm for a presentation and question-and-answer session about the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project. The panel will include experts from our project team. Live captioning will be provided.
