Flags were at half-staff at Mississauga City Hall after Bruce McLaughlin passed away two weeks ago. The Globe and Mail published an obituary. People expressed their condolences on social media.
Hardly a surprising outpour, given the man’s accomplishments.
Bruce was, after all, a visionary — the man who built Square One, the Father of the City of Mississauga, a philanthropist, a successful businessman. He was also a horse lover, an author, and an avid outdoorsman. He was many things, and he excelled at all of them. He was, in fact, nothing short of an icon, full of big ideas and plans.
We have been working for Double Oak, the company of Bruce’s son-in-law, for over 10 years. We have nothing but respect for what Bruce accomplished, and we attempt to follow in his steps.
My condolences go toward his family.
