Do you support asking the Ontario government to extend the investigative authority of the Ontario Ombudsman to include municipalities?

If the answer is not an UNQUALIFIED "Yes!", ask "Why not?" and proceed with extreme caution.

Rockin’ the house for food bank

Joseph Chin Jul 07, 2011 – 11:05 AM

More than a thousand people packed the Living Arts Centre last night for a concert marking the 25th anniversary of the Mississauga Food Bank.
Although a final tally isn’t in yet, event organizer Carolyn Parrish said the show grossed $105,600. After expenses are paid, she expects the concert to reach its goal of raising $50,000 for the food bank and $10,000 for the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra (MSO).

Parrish was overwhelmed by the generosity of the crowd when a hat was passed around during the intermission. Some $2,800 was collected.

“There were $100 bills in the collection. People were donating by Visa in the lobby,” she told The News this morning.

A reader-commenter at the Mississauga News who attended the concert reports that:

Eve Adams and Brad Butt were asked to hold the baskets for donations at intermission.

Now we’re passing the hat!

MISSISSAUGAWATCH issues a challenge to Mississaugans.  We ask that you match our donation of $250.00 to The Mississauga Food Bank —or donate what you can.

You are seeing great sights,
But down here at the bottom
We, too, should have rights.
