Deepak Connects with ResidentsPublished on November 08, 2018
MISSISSAUGA –MALTON residents were invited to join MPP Deepak Anand at Frank McKechnie Community Centre last night for an open meeting to talk about local issues. The meeting is part of a series of events promised by MPP Anand to stay connected to his riding and hear the voices of his constituents.
MPP Anand opened the discussion with an update from Queen’s Park and commented on the recent 5 cent decrease in gas prices that are a direct result of the end of the Cap and Trade program. He also talked about the education curriculum which, as Premiere Ford promised, is open to residents for consultation. Feedback can be submitted to www.ForTheParents.ca until December 15th, 2018.
MPP Anand also mentioned “Our new office is open now at 7895 Tranmere Dr., and we are here to serve you. Appointments are preferred, but my staff can accommodate walk-in requests during regular business hours.”
In the second half of the meeting to support a good community discussion, Anand opened the floor noting that he “wanted to make the meeting valuable for residents”. Following a good 30 minute discussion, he promised to look into the rise in break-ins, hospital wait times and issues surrounding a Ministry of Transport Drive Test centre.
The event was hosted with support from the Mississauga-Malton office staff who were on hand to record the discussion and community partner, Metrolinx who fielded questions on the Hurontario Light Rail Transit project.
After the meeting, residents were encouraged to share their voice through the support of any of a variety of petitions ranging from an update in the Payment in Lieu of Taxes program from the Greater Toronto Airport Authority to the City of Mississauga to Postal Code discrimination by Insurance Companies.
