Mississauga Represent



I know this info is a bit out dated but intresting none the less.
Mississauga is the largest suburban municipality in all of North America, with a population of 636,801 and a population density of 2125.1/kmē. Mississauga is larger than the American cities of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Boston, Massachusetts; Washington DC; Nashville, Tennessee; Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; New Orleans, Louisiana; Las Vegas, Nevada; Cleveland, Ohio; Atlanta, Georgia; Sacramento, California; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Miami, Florida etc. Mississauga also has a higher population than the Canadian city of Vancouver, British Columbia. The five largest suburbs in North America, in order, are Mississauga, Ontario; Mesa, Arizona; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Surrey, British Columbia; and Laval, Quebec.

Not to mention the nations busiest highway/airport. The highway rivals any major USA city.

Another intresting factolid.

The Mississauga train derailment of 1979 occurred on Saturday, November 10, 1979, in Canada, when a 106-car Canadian Pacific freight train carrying explosive and poisonous chemicals from Windsor, Ontario was derailed near the intersection of Mavis Road and Dundas Street in Mississauga, Ontario. As a result of the derailment, over 200,000 people were evacuated in what was then the largest peacetime evacuation in North America up until the New Orleans evacuation of 2005. It was the last explosion in the Greater Toronto Area until the Sunrise Propane blast in 2008. There were no deaths resulting from the spill.

Parents have told me about this. They said it was very eerie to see.

Hahahahahah, mississauga? more like miserysauga. the most depressing place in the world. Suburban wasteland with horrible traffic. Oh how much I miss that

The funny thing is that every single one of those american cities have 1000000000000000000000x the culture and vibrancy miserysauga could only dream about.

my sister moved into a new condo in square one recently, and i just about puked when i saw the boring brown and tan interior finishes. Then I went outside. And saw not a soul out on Saturday night.

Miserysauga name fits the place so well. And brown should be the official color of the city.

Wait, ur insulting another city as a Montreal resident? LOL

Mississauaga was only incoporated in 1974 witch is way less time then any of those cities. We don't have alot of culture but there are a few places, Streetsville, Clarkson, Port Credit, Erindale and Old Derry Road just to name a few. Also the art gallary at SQ1, the Confederation bridge and the Credit River. The city has culture it's just over shadowed by its tremendous growth.



Absolute World is a residential development in Mississauga, Ontario, consisting of 5 condominium tower blocks.[1] It is currently being built by Fernbrook Homes and Cityzen Development Group, with the first three towers completed. The last two towers are the centrepiece of this massive development, now under construction, and will substantially change Mississauga's skyline, topping out at 56 and 50 floors respectively. These two tower blocks will be the tallest of any built in a Canadian suburban city.

Compaired to Ajax Bolton has a lot of traffic. No shit the traffic is bad but you just have to know the city to know how to get around it.

The Peel Regional Police (PRP) provides police services for Peel Region in Ontario, Canada. As of 2005, it is the second largest municipal police service in Ontario after the Toronto Police Service and third largest municipal force in Canada (behind Toronto and Montreal) with 1,700 uniformed members and close to 600 support staff.
