The City of Brampton is still waiting on a decision to be made by the Ford Government on the fate of the Region of Peel.
The province of Ontario released a review of 82 upper-tier and lower-tier governments which also included the Peel Region back in January of this year. All eight of the regional municipalities in Ontario as well as Simcoe County are being reviewed and may have changes made to their current governments.
At a public town hall meeting last month, Mayor Patrick Brown told the public that the Ford Government would be reaching a decision by the end of August before the annual AMO (Association of Municipalities of Ontario) conference from August 18 – 21.
All three of the Region of Peel cities have made their decisions. Brampton voted to stay in the region, while Mississauga asked the province to pass legislation that would have the city separate from the region and operate as an independent city. Caledon also passed a motion for support behind two-tier governance in Peel.
