Waste service impacts today due to snowstorm

By Events, Issues, Resources, Ward 1
January 17, 2022
Due to today’s snow storm and road conditions, Region of Peel’s waste collection contractors are unable to safely collect waste. In the interest of safety, today’s curbside and multi-residential waste collection has been cancelled.
• Residents are asked to set out their waste at the curb one day later than usual this week (for example, if your waste is usually collected Monday, set it out for Tuesday; if your waste is usually collected Tuesday, set it out for Wednesday, etc.).
• Best efforts will be made to collect all waste between Tuesday and Friday but, given the weather and Covid conditions, residents should expect delays.
• As a reminder, there will be no bulky collection starting this week until further notice.
• If residents have their natural Christmas trees set out, they are asked to ensure that the trees are visible and accessible for pickup.
In addition, only two Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) are operational today – Heart Lake CRC in Brampton and Fewster CRC in Mississauga. All other CRC locations are closed for today.

Lakeview School Article

By Issues, Resources, Ward 1

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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:

This winter, avoid short term damages from excessive salt use while staying safe

By Resources, Ward 1

January 7, 2022

It’s that time of year when we apply salt to make winter driving and walking easier; however too much salt doesn’t make it any safer. Using salt on roads, sidewalks, parking lots, and driveways has a big impact when snow and ice melt. It can damage infrastructure, wildlife, and personal belongings. This includes cracks and salt stains on concrete surfaces, such as buildings, sidewalks, driveways, and pathways. A lot of salt use can also damage floors and carpets and your personal items such as the undercoating of cars, shoes, and clothing. Apart from stationary objects, your pets and other wildlife can also suffer from oversalting. It can harm pets’ paws when going out for walks and it can even be mistaken for food for pets and birds, resulting in a choking hazard. Read More
