  • ‘Please Slow Down’ Lawn Signs and Other Road Safety Intiatives

    The City of Mississauga is encouraging drivers to slow down on streets to ensure safety of residents in the community through a number of public education safety campaigns.

     

    I am distributing ‘Please Slow Down’ lawn signs to promote safe driving habits and to lower vehicle operating speeds on our neighbourhood streets. These signs can be obtained at no cost by contacting my office at 905-896-5200 or email karen.ras@mississauga.ca.

     

    “We develop and support programs that educate residents and all road users to keep their communities safe,” said Geoff Wright, Commissioner of Transportation and Works. “The lawn signs, among other initiatives, aim to encourage all road users to be responsible and obey traffic rules so we can travel safely in and around the City. The safety of all road users is a priority for the City of Mississauga.”

     

    The City is working with the Share the Road Cycling Coalition to encourage cyclists to follow the recently amended Highway Traffic Act. The new Act states that when passing, motorists must leave at least one metre of space between their car and a person riding a bicycle. This ensures safety of the motorist as well as the cyclist.

     

    In addition, the City is working with Transport Canada and railway authorities to ensure resident safety around railway crossings in Mississauga.

     

  • Mayor’s Citywide Food Drive Challenge

    Mayor Crombie is pleased to once again launch the 2016 Mayor’s Citywide Food Drive Challenge as a part of The Mississauga Food Bank’s Annual Thanksgiving Campaign in partnership with the City’s Fire and Emergency Services team. Starting on Monday, September 19, goals are to raise 200,000 lbs of food and $100,000 by October 14. Last year  148,900 lbs of food were donated and $82,917 so we have our work cut out for us this Thanksgiving season!

     

    For the 15% of Mississauga residents who live in poverty, providing adequate nutritious food for their families is a daily struggle. The Mississauga Food Bank exists to ease this struggle for hungry neighbours while they work out the issues in their lives that caused the need for a food bank. Their vision is a Mississauga where no one goes hungry.

     

    Ways for you to participate in this campaign:

     

    • Participate in the challenge by inviting constituents to raise food and funds for The Mississauga Food Bank. You can do this by promoting the campaign through your communication channels – social media, newsletters, website, etc. A campaign toolkit for this purpose is attached for your review and consideration;
    • Join the #OneBagChallenge:
      • Fill a bag with nutritious non-perishable food
      • Take a photo or video as you deliver your donation to your local grocery store, fire station or The Mississauga Food Bank
      • Post your photo or video on social media and challenge five people to do the same within 48 hours. Make sure to use the hashtag #OneBagChallenge!
