Happy New Year Presidents, Board Members and Neighbours!
The past year continued to be very challenging. I’m looking forward to 2022 with energy and optimism.
With the limitations and restrictions in 2021, I wanted to ensure we had a variety of outdoor community events and our office continued to have community (virtual) meetings on a variety of issues; such as the concerns regarding traffic calming issues, development applications, ensuring the Ward gets its fair share with the “Slow Street” program and the “Slow Down” sign program, to name a few. The majority of the streets throughout the Ward have reduced speed limit signage reducing the speed to 40km.
You may recall, I asked for the reduced speed in sections along Lakeshore Road East last year and it has proven to be very successful. Another important initiative I have been working on for our community as an Advocate is against vehicle noise and speed.
The Lakeshore East Corridor Study, the Marina and the Dundas BRT study were reviewed and continue to be modified. These initiatives are critical to our Ward for safe and proper planning. I look forward to continuing to work together on the concerns and aspirations of the community. There will be a number of exciting initiatives in 2022 for our community and I look forward to sharing them with you.
Our community is our home! Shop Local!

Lakeview has had long and rich history. From the first Aerodrome to the Small Arms Building, and so much more; there are many aspects of our Community’s past we cherish.
Recently, the Lakeview Park Public School, built in 1923 has been a topic of renewed conversation. This site was recently deemed surplus by the Peel District School Board. Prior to this, I had several conversations with the Community as to its importance and its future.
There is now a proposal on behalf of Habitat for Humanity to purchase the site. The proposal, if successful, would include the original School Building on the site along with a 3 acre mix of attainable and affordable housing.
I have been very vocal in advocating for saving the original school building and affordable seniors’ housing. At this stage, a few things to note:
- I have been working on this file to protect and ensure that the School site remain a fixture of the Lakeview Community and the City.
- Habitat for Humanity has approached the School Board about a number of possible surplus properties across Mississauga and after some conversations with the City and myself, they are interested in pursuing this particular location.
- In all of my conversations with the City and Habitat for Humanity I have always stressed that the original school site be saved at all cost.
- If successful in their bid, Habitat for Humanity has pledged to me that they will work with the Community on the site and also the original School Building in making it a wonderful part of Lakeview’s future.
The rich history of Lakeview is more important than ever to weave it into our future. Another historic jewel in the Community is the Small Arms Inspection Building. Some may recall last year, as a result of limited access to the Small Arms Inspection Building, the first investment of the Federal Gas Tax Initiative I undertook, was to install a semi-permeable parking lot to ensure that the building can better serve the Community.
Lakeview has a bright future ahead and knowing where we came from is a significant step to moving forward.
Please feel free to click on the latest article in the Mississauga News from John Stewart regarding the possible future of the Lakeview Park Public School and the site:
