LRT in Mississauga could derail if Ontario doesn't fully commit
The Globe and Mail
A light-rail line along Hurontario Street was the legacy project former Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion tried to deliver before she retired, and the one her successor, Bonnie Crombie, adopted as a key campaign pledge. But the dream of building a rapid transit line down one of Mississauga's busiest corridors was all based on a "hope" that the provincial government would bankroll the $1.6 billion capital project.

Real estate rep may also be mortgage agent
Toronto Star
In Ontario, registered real estate professionals can also be licensed mortgage agents. Mortgage agents are regulated under the Mortgage Brokers Act by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) — not the provincial Real Estate Council. A person who is both a registered real estate professional and a licensed mortgage broker is allowed to act in both capacities.

Brampton Guardian
When it comes to fighting gridlock many major North American urban regions have a key advantage over the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). They have a single region-wide authority delivering their transit services. The 6.4 million people who live in the municipalities that make up the GTHA, and more millions outside, are currently captive to a patchwork of 10 autonomous transit agencies.

Mississauga's home on the Grange
The Medium
Tucked into the side of Dundas Street West near Mississauga Road, the Grange serves as the headquarters of Heritage Mississauga, a local history organization, and embodies the organization’s purpose through its own history. Inside, the Grange is a museum, library, and office space all in one. Chief Justice John Beverley Robinson of Upper Canada built the Grange in 1828 in the Ontario Regency style of architecture. The building frequently changed hands after 1832, each owner adding to its structure and history.

New rules could shift face of Toronto skyline, affordable housing
Metro News
A small change to Ontario's building code could have a big impact on residential growth in Toronto, experts say. New rules allow developers to construct wood-frame buildings up to six storeys. The height restriction had previously been capped at four due to safety concerns. "Certain provinces, particularly B.C., have been pushing the boundaries in terms of getting larger and higher buildings made out of wood, and Ontario is finally catching on," said Paul Stevens, a principal at ZAS Architects in Toronto.

Selecting real estate agent is random for many
Inside Ottawa Valley
Ontario home buyers and sellers could use better tools and resources to help pick the right real estate agent. A recent survey released by Zoocasa and Survey Sampling International (SSI) revealed most (86 per cent) Ontario home buyers and sellers used a real estate agent on their last transaction, but only half (50 per cent) reported being confident that they picked the right one. "Buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions a person will make in their lifetime, so it is surprising that Ontarians are settling for what's essentially a coin flip when picking a real estate agent," says Carolyn Beatty, general manager for Zoocasa.
