Remembering Hazel McCallion


“She was a role model + a beacon of the value of keeping on keeping on – it makes me very sad to know she’s gone.” – Moses

As tributes poured in for “Hurricane” Hazel McCallion following her death on January 29th just shy of her 102nd birthday, it was clear her loss was being felt well beyond the world of politics. The beloved, no-nonsense mayor of Mississauga, Ontario from 1978 to 2014 was a pillar of the community right up to her death and a prominent spokesperson for women’s sports, particularly hockey, which she played professionally for a period as a younger woman. Hazel thrived in municipal and regional politics at a time when women weren’t invited into the conversation. In this Talk, delivered in 2019, she shared her thoughts on the pillars of good governance.
