Quote
"The residents of Brampton elected a city government that, under my leadership will be more aggressive on economic development, more focused on building a healthy community, we will demand our fair share of funding from provincial and federal governments and work towards building a Brampton of our dreams. We have many challenges ahead of us, but I am certain together this newly elected City Council will get Brampton back on track.”
- Mayor-elect Patrick Brown.
