Hazel McCallion, the 88-year old 11-term mayor mayor of the financially solvent Canadian city of Mississauga, easily won her last election with 92% of the vote. A former hockey player, who is still called upon to drop the puck, has been described as a “small-c” conservative. She runs the government of Canada’s sixth-largest city on a business model. As a result, Mississauga is debt-free, and has not borrowed money since 1978, the year that Mrs. McCallion was first elected mayor.
