On May 10, 2016, the city of Brampton had a visit from the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. This event included distinguished guests such as Her Worship Mayor Linda Jeffrey, a number of Brampton City Councillors, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Credit River Métis Council (CRMC), local and international business leaders, representatives from educational institutions, public service groups including fire, medicine and police, and the Peel Aboriginal Network. This was Her Honour’s first visit to Brampton.
The event included a roundtable discussion, which had a theme of sustainability. This topic is a priority for Her Honour as it focuses on the perspectives of economics, environment and local planning.
After the roundtable discussion, MNO CRMC Treasurer Darlene Lent and Senator Bill Morrison welcomed Her Honour to the area and presented her with a Métis sash. They thanked Her Honour for the visit as well as the informative discussion. A reception was later held for guests at the Alderlea House.
