Charity Garage Sale

A local Churchill Meadows resident will be hosting a charity garage sale and all proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Here’s her story,

Late last year my cousin, who was only 25 years old at the time, was diagnosed with Lymphoma.  She underwent many rounds of chemotherapy, and thankfully the prognosis at this time is extremely positive.  She had youth and strength on her side.

My family wanted to do something to support the organizations that have helped support her during her ordeal, and where the donations could be used to help others.

My young sons (ages 12 and 9) came up with the idea of a fundraiser where we could donate 100% of money raised to the LLSC.  When I thought of the idea of a garage sale, they not only helped to look for items in our house that we could donate, but have willingly given up many of their own items.  We then reached out to our friends and family to also provide items and help on the date of the event, and we have had great response as well.

In addition, my cousin is also participating in the “Night the Light” Walk hosted by LLSC, and she has requested that a portion of the proceeds raised could be used to reach her fundraising goal.

Candidate’s Debate Night

The number of electoral districts in Ontario has been increased to 124 from 107 for the upcoming provincial election, including an additional riding in Mississauga.

Changes were made to offer growing communities like Mississauga better representation and match the federal electoral riding map, which is changed every 10 years after the census is conducted to reflect population shifts and growth.

When the election is over, Mississauga will have an additional representatives in the legislature at Queen’s Park.

Ridings in Mississauga for the June 7 provincial election are:

  1. Mississauga Centre
  2. Mississauga East-Cooksville
  3. Mississauga-Erin Mills
  4. Mississauga-Lakeshore
  5. Mississauga-Malton and
  6. Mississauga-Streetsville

The candidates representing the Mississauga-Erin Mills riding are:


Libby Yuill – GPO Nominee

Born and raised in Medicine Hat, AB. but I have lived in Ontario since 1992.  First London, ON for 10 years and Mississauga for 16 years.  My full name is Margery Elizabeth Yuill but I have been called Libby since I was an infant.

I am married to John-Paul Moczulski (25 years), a freelance photojournalist, and we have 3 children – Warner (24), Anais (20), and Ryker (13).  I owned and operated a financial services firm for seven years during the 1990s, raised my children throughout the 2000s while working part-time in a variety of areas, and currently I teach self-defense and Karate as well as doing contract work occasionally.

I have spent time reading, studying, and understanding the value of sustainable development, deep ecology, and the triple bottom line economy of people, planet, and profit.  My desire to run as a candidate for the Green Party of Ontario is founded on the belief that innovative ideas, a committed understanding to the greater good, and a determined will to ensure the best path is chosen to meet the challenges we face today for a sustainable, resilient future tomorrow.


Imran Mian – Liberal Candidate

Imran Mian is currently Vice-President, Sales of mobileLIVE Inc, an award-winning GTA technology company. He has held a variety of other managerial roles over a twenty-year career in business and technology, including with companies such as Bell Canada, the Info-Tech Research Group and Samsung Canada.

Imran also served on the board of Family Services of Peel.

Sheref Sabawy – PC Candidate

After 15 years of Liberal mismanagement, our community and our province needs change. As a computer network and IT professional, small business owner, and educator, I understand the challenges our community faces. A long-time resident of Mississauga, I care deeply about our community, which is why I am proud to be the Progressive Conservative candidate for Mississauga-Erin Mills.

I will be a champion for our community at Queen’s Park and will work alongside our Leader, Doug Ford, to: • clean up the hydro mess • put money back into your pockets • restore responsibility, accountability and trust in government • bring jobs back to Ontario • and end hallway health care.

On June 7th, I hope to count on your vote.

Neighbourhood Christmas Party

By: Graeme Melvin

For the 4th year in a row, The Meadows Church is bringing the neighbourhood together to celebrate and give back. They will be hosting the Neighbourhood Christmas Party and Fresh Food Drive on Saturday, December 16th from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM. As the Churchill Meadows Residents Association, we are committed to supporting community events such as this and are happy to be present at the party contributing to the festivities again this year.

Each year, we have seen our diverse community come together to play games, listen to live music, eat desserts and build new relationships with neighbours. On top of having a great time, this evening also serves as a way to benefit the greater community.

Tickets to the party are free, but everyone is encouraged to donate towards Eden Food for Change. Please bring FRESH FOOD that has a further expiry date such as cheese, yogurt and butter or give towards a CHRISTMAS WISHLIST. The wishlist is a simple way of making your monetary donations go a long way. Check off where you would like your donation to be used. It can provide food items that are needed but rarely donated or for presents for families who cannot afford to give their children gifts this holiday season. However you contribute, we know you will enjoy your evening and make someone else’s day.

Join us at Stephen Lewis Secondary School (3675 Thomas St., Mississauga, ON) in the main auditorium on Saturday, December 16th from 7:00-9:00PM. The evening is free, but tickets are required so that your place at the party will be reserved for you!
