Metro Morning In Brampton

It used to be a quiet bedroom community down the road from Toronto. But in recent years, Brampton has grown--by hundreds of thousands of people--to become the ninth largest city in Canada. Fuelled by a massive wave of immigration, it's now one of the country's most multicultural cities, a sign of our changing national identity. And for politicians, it's a battleground, a city with two new ridings and shifting political allegiances, which could help determine Canada's next government.

On Wednesday, October 14th, Metro Morning went to Brampton to find out some of the key issues facing the city and the region, and the role they could play in the federal election.
