Mississauga, ON – Amrit Mangat, MPP for Mississauga–Brampton South, announced today that the provincial government will provide relief to residents displaced by the house explosion on Hickory Drive.
The relief will be in the form of reimbursement of the provincial share of property taxes that is collected by the municipality. MPP Mangat expects the relief will benefit the residents, many of whom had been paying property taxes and other daily expenses, such as accommodation costs, while they have been displaced.
“I am very pleased by today’s announcement that the province will be providing relief to residents who were displaced by the explosion on Hickory Drive. Many of these residents continue to be financially burdened by this tragic incident. Since the day of the explosion, I have been working very hard in my provincial role to support the residents and community,” said Amrit Mangat, MPP for Mississauga–Brampton South.
Since June 2016, MPP Mangat has continuously reached out to residents, attended local community meetings between officials and residents, and lobbied at Queen’s Park to explore ways that the province could provide assistance.
Her office also assisted residents to replace provincial identification, including health cards and drivers licences, which had been lost during the emergency. This helped many residents to access health care, take their children to school, report to work, and to go about their daily business.
