Bonnie Crombie running for Mississauga mayor

After Toronto got federal transit money for subway, Crombie calls for federal cash for a Mississauga LRT

There are now two high profile candidates in the race to replace Hazel McCallion as Mayor of Mississauga.

Former Liberal MP and current city councillor Bonnie Crombie officially registered for a Mayoral run Tuesday in Mississauga.

Crombie will take on former Liberal MP and MPP Steve Mahoney.

She tells Newstalk 1010 that among other things she'll be focusing on fiscal responsibility, how to pay for improvements to infrastructure, and reducing congestion.

Crombie says since Toronto got federal funding for the Scarborough subway extension she is going push for a "fair share" of cash from the feds to pay for an LRT in Mississauga.
