This week Matthew welcomes back Richard Collins as they continue to explore the impact of railways in historic Mississauga.

Richard journeys through history and looks at four of Mississauga’s infamous railway accidents and catastrophes including the Desjardins Canal Train Accident, the Horseshoe Curve Accident, the Chicago Flyer Wreck, and the Port Credit Train Derailment.

We invite you to send in any of your stories and images of historic events in Mississauga to [email protected] so we can include them to our archives and feature them in future programs and exhibits at Heritage Mississauga.

You are invited to email us questions you have about Mississauga and we encourage you to send a short (less than 1 minute) MP4 video of your question, which we may feature in one of our “Ask a Historian” videos.

Any questions not featured in our videos will receive a written response from Matthew.

We would also love to feature questions from young Mississauga residents who are curious about their city and will feature a dedicated video to these inquisitive kids.
