Regional Chairs to be Directly Elected

“..help strengthen local governments and enhance their ability to serve the residents of their communities.”

However, not everyone was pleased with the announcement. While Brampton Mayor Linda Jeffrey welcomed the legislation, Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie referred to it as solving a problem that doesn’t exist.
