Bonnie Crombie to run in Mississauga mayoral race

March 25, 2014
By

Mississauga Coun. Bonnie Crombie will file papers on Tuesday to run in that city’s race to replace Mayor Hazel McCallion.

Crombie, 54, a former MP, will officially register as a candidate at Mississauga City Hall at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

There are three registered candidates so far: Scott Chapman, Riazuddin Choudhry and Steve Mahoney.

Her main competition is Mahoney, a former councillor, MPP and MP. He registered last week.

A Forum Research poll last week suggested Mahoney would beat Crombie by 29 to 22 per cent in a head-to-head race.

Mahoney has spent about 25 years in politics at the municipal, provincial and federal levels.

Crombie was the city’s MP from 2008 to 2011 and switched over to the role of councillor in the September 2011 byelection after losing her federal seat.

McCallion, 93, won’t be running for re-election this fall, ending her 35-year reign as mayor of Canada’s sixth largest city.

Linda Jeffrey may run in Brampton’s mayoral race

Meantime, the province’s Municipal Affairs Minister Linda Jeffrey is expected to resign on Tuesday to pave the way for a run for mayor of Brampton.

Her office has sent out an advisory saying she will make a statement at 1 p.m. at the Ontario legislature after the Liberal caucus meeting.

Jeffrey, a former Brampton councillor, has been critical of current Mayor Susan Fennell.

Fennell, who’s mired in an expenses scandal, released a statement on Monday saying Jeffrey has a record of financial mismanagement at the provincial level.

The municipal election will be held on Oct. 27.
