Profile of Hurricane Hazel

If you're not familiar with local Canadian politics, you may not know Hazel McCallion. She's the current mayor of Mississauga and has been for 30 years. Mississauga is the 6th largest city in Canada, so her responsibilities are not exactly trivial. She is affectionately known as Hurricane Hazel, for her outspoken style of no-nonsense politics.

At the age of 87, you may think she's taking things slowly. But she has no intention of doing so. In her most recent election victory (in which she won by a landslide margin) McCallion said there was definitely room for improvement, and plans to focus on public transit and solving the problem of gridlock on the roads, among other issues.

Watch this video and you'll see why she's so popular with voters.
