South African Leader
Condolences from Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion

Dec 06, 2013

The citizens of the City of Mississauga join those around the world in mourning the loss of Nelson Mandela. Our hearts and condolences go out to the Mandela family and the people of South Africa.


Nelson Mandela was an inspirational and courageous leader. He embodied hope and stood for freedom, peace and tolerance – words we can all take to heart and live by. He remained strong in the face of opposition and in his fight for social justice and equality.


His achievements inspired the world and are a testament of what can be accomplished by one person. Now it is our turn to ensure his legacy lives on and that we continue to focus on human rights issues around the globe and advocate for democracy, freedom, peace and equality for all.
