About Mississauga

Did you know that Colonel Sanders lived in Mississauga for 15 years? Kind of a random fact but he liked the place so much he stayed for a while. It is also well known for the largest peace time evacuation in North American history. In 1979 a train derailment caused a large propane explosion and since the train was carrying tankers of Chlorine, it was feared a massive chlorine cloud would cover the city. Over 220,000 people were evacuated. It was such a safe, fast and efficient evacuation that cities all over North America use Mississauga as an example for their own emergency preparations.

  • Thank you very much for contacting me about my move. Due to the urgency of planning my move, I did happen to already book with someone else who I happened to connect with a bit sooner than you. But I am really impressed with the many great quotes from high-quality movers that I received so quickly via your service, so I want you to know that I will certainly be keeping you in mind for any future moving needs for myself or my friends.
