This week Matthew answers questions about the birthday of the city of Malton, the naming of Shaw Drive, sweet businesses that existed in Port Credit, and a historic fence found around the city.

Heritage Mississauga is the source for Mississauga’s heritage and we receive many inquiries about historic, people, places, milestones, and curiosities from historic Mississauga.

Questions from this episode include:

Q1: How old is Malton?
Q2: Where does Shaw Drive get its name from?
Q3: Where was the old green metal fence in Lion’s Park originally located?
