Brampton mayor, councillors hope latest rumours about Peel Region dissolution are true

A report by the Toronto Star hints at Premier Doug Ford reconsidering the dissolution of Peel Region, stirring hope and concern among Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon residents. While Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown and some councillors welcome the potential reversal, others, like Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, advocate for staying the course, emphasizing efficiency and cost-saving benefits. The debate intensifies as updated data from Deloitte Canada projects a hefty $1.3 billion cost and a significant tax increase if the region is split. Meanwhile, councillor Martin Medeiros raises questions about the political motivations behind Ford’s potential reversal, adding to the ongoing uncertainty and disruption.
