The Ontario Government announced on October 25th, 2019, that it would be keeping the province regional government intact while providing funding to municipalities to govern their own affairs. The move has spurred mixed reactions from Mississauga and Brampton, with the former being disappointed by the decision and the later being relieved. Earlier this year, Mississauga was looking to separate from Brampton, as it didn't want to be part of the Region of Peel.

According to Insauga, the announcement comes after a year-long examination into the efficiency of regional government in Peel, Durham, York, Halton, Niagara, Waterloo, Muskoka, and Simcoe Country.

While Mississauga was hoping it would be able to convince Queen's Park from separating from Brampton, it seems that Ford had other ideas.
