Hazel McCallion is probably the most popular mayor in Canada. At over 90 years old, she can remember when the John Brooks location was only farmer's fields. Here, she presents a certificate to Keith and Roger Minkhorst.


 

Mississauga-Streetsville member of parliament, Brad Butt, was on hand to address the crowd and pass along congratulations from prime minister Stephen Harper. Long-time Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion was also on hand to relate her memories of the early days in the area where John Brooks now stands. Both presented owners Keith and Roger Minkhorst with certificates commemorating the occasion, and received in turn personalized John Brooks hockey jerseys.
