I grew up in the Saug. Well, mostly. My family moved there in 1972 and lived there until 1995. Port Credit was a dusty little hamlet back in the day, marked by car dealerships, cornstarch and oil refineries. Now it’s the cake by the lake. Mayor Bonnie Crombie says Mississauga is looking to separate from Peel Region to stand on its own. Good idea or bad, there’s lots to like about Mississauga. There are the sexy buildings in the town centre, unofficially called the Marilyn Monroe towers. There’s the Mississauga Water Festival every June, the Port Credit Lighthouse (fake, I believe), Scooter’s Roller Palace, the new, revitalized Square One, Michael’s Back Door Restaurant, the monster homes on Mississauga Road, catching the last Go Train, and, of course, missing the last Go Train. What else makes Mississauga unique?
