Carmen Corbasson


On March 28, 2012, Council voted unanimously to re-name the Cawthra Community Centre in Lakeview District after Carmen Corbasson, who passed away on March 10, 2012. 

See the photo source webpage of the structural engineering firm which completed the new Cawthra Community Centre project in 1999.


Photo below: Carmen was a great supporter of TOPCA's painted bike project, initiated in celebration of the 175th Anniversary of Port Credit in 2010.  Here Carmen speaks at the Farmers' Market in June 2010 beside one of our first bikes.  Carmen encouraged us to paint the bikes as brightly as possible, thinking that that blue and green paint given to us by the City wasn't wild enough for the nature of the project.  We will be re-painting the bikes this Spring!

Mississauga News article (March 10, 2012): Carmen Corbasson dies after surgery.  Excerpt: "Carmen Corbasson, who became synonymous with grassroots representation in her 27 years working in the Ward 1 council office at Mississauga city hall, died at 8:30 this morning of complications from surgery."
