Nominations are now open for the next group of Mississaugans who will be selected as recipients of the 2018 crystal award in November.
Mississauga’s Walk of Fame profiles leading citizens who have accomplished extraordinary things and made a contribution to the betterment of not only our city, but indeed Canada, and in some cases, around the world. Through their actions and deeds, pride and spirit has been introduced to our community. They are special citizens, some widely known, others not household names, but the common thread amongst all of them is that their talents and accomplishments we hope will influence and inspire our leaders of tomorrow. People like Jazz pianist Oscar Peterson, Olympic rower Silken Laumann, Country singer Tommy Hunter, ’72 Soviet Summit Series hero Paul Henderson and former Mayor Hazel McCallion, among others, are enshrined in the Walk of Fame.
