HAZEL Celebrates Life and Legacy of Canada's Most Popular Mayor "Hurricane Hazel"
TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - This Saturday marks the television premiere of HAZEL, a new and inspiring documentary on the life and times of Canada's most popular Mayor, Hazel McCallion.
In honour of McCallion's retirement from her role as the Mayor of Mississauga after more than 36 years of leadership, HAZEL explores McCallion's incredible legacy as an internationally renowned political leader.
The documentary, broadcast exclusively on YES TV, also highlights McCallion's contributions as a pioneer for women's hockey, an advocate for women in leadership, and a compassionate humanitarian, providing an intimate look at both her political and personal life.
Earlier this week, YES TV hosted an exclusive premiere event of HAZEL at Mississauga's Cineplex Cinema. Guests included dignitaries, politicians, prominent business leaders, McCallion's friends and family, and, the woman of the hour, Mayor Hazel McCallion. As the Mayor and documentary producer, Karen Pascal, received a standing ovation, McCallion shared with guests one of her leadership mottos, remarking that she has always tried to – "Act like a lady. Think like a man. Work like a dog."
