Crombie Launches Mayor’s Blood Drive

Mississauga – In partnership with Canadian Blood Services, I am proud to announce that for the month of December we are holding the Mayor’s Blood Drive, Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie said.

“During this Christmas holiday season, you have the power to wrap it up red and Give Life,” Mayor Crombie said. “I am reaching out to all residents in Mississauga and encouraging you to Give Life by donating blood to our local hospital, patients and their families,” Mayor Crombie added.

The Mayor’s Blood Drive is running from now until December 31 at the Heartland Blood Donor Clinic – 765 Britannia Road West Unit 2 Mississauga, ON L5V 2Y1 – (located at the Northwest Corner of Mavis and Hurontario).

“This is a busy time of year, but the need for blood and stem cell donations never stops,” Mayor Crombie said.

“I want to thank everyone who has helped give the gift of life, including the team from Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services for already stepping up and taking part in this city-wide effort.

“I would like to single out Canadian Blood Services staff, for their tremendous dedication, commitment and enthusiasm to ensure the Mayor’s Blood Drive is a complete success.”

Election Night 2015 Live Streaming for the Region of Peel

Peel Region residents from Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon represent approximately 4% of Canada’s population (just under 11% of Ontario). The 12 Federal seats in the region feature 3 new ridings and together comprises almost 1.5 million constituents. Battleground Ontario starts in Peel, yet the general media’s election night coverage features mostly national results and perspectives.

Brampton Focus, and Mississauga Connects, both independent grass roots community based organizations realized that the region’s electorate was void of a dedicated riding by riding hyper local coverage of these 12 important federal seats.

“Peel deserves dedicated election coverage of our 12 Federal riding results on election night. We want relevant discussion focused on our local issues with live voting results as they come in. Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon currently have no dedicated TV coverage on election night and we intend to change and improve that”

Donald Mcleod, Co-Founder of Brampton Focus

A team of over 26 professionals and concerned residents are volunteering time, money, television expertise and technology to create a multi-camera TV studio to host a 4 hour live independent election night streaming broadcast. The broadcast will feature multiple political insider guests, interviews from riding halls and candidates, with up-to-the-minute vote results. A legion of on-site volunteer reporters via smart phone technology are integrated live into the broadcast delivering exclusive and engaging local coverage. Accessible and free to residents with an internet connection.

With on-line viewing becoming the future of broadcast, and those who watch conventional broadcasts having a media device open simultaneously, this hyper local interactive coverage by a grass-roots non broadcast voluntary entity is what the future promises to deliver…. today!
