Brown showed up at Brampton City Hall on Friday — the last day of registration — to put his name forward. He will be running against the incumbent mayor, Linda Jeffrey.The surprise move comes after Premier Doug Ford announced plans Friday morning to "pause" the election of chairs in Peel, York, Niagara and Muskoka regions.

Georgia-Pacific says it is closing its Dixie Cup manufacturing plant in Brampton, Ont.

The company will close the plant by the end of the fourth quarter of its financial year.

It says 128 manufacturing workers and five customer service employees will lose their jobs.

The company, which informed employees of the closure last week, says the decision comes down to business needs and consumer demand.

Spokesman Kelly Ferguson says the product is still in demand, but some of the company's customers in Canada are choosing to purchase from other cup manufacturers.

He says the company's American plants that manufacture Dixie cups will remain open.
