At 100 Year Year Lifestyle we talk about living 100:100, at 100% for 100 years or more. Hazel McCallion, a 101-year-old true force of nature, has just signed up to another three years running Canada’s biggest airport. She’s 35 years past Canada’s official retirement age of 65. When she turned 65 she was busy as mayor of Mississauga, Canada, a position she held until 2014. On her 90th birthday in 2011, McCallion was assessed by Dr. Barbara Clive, a geriatrician, who stated that “at 90 her gait is perfect, her speech is totally sharp and she has the drive to still run this city. She’s the poster child for seniors.” She’s got 100:100 down pat. This is one remarkable woman.
Hazel McCallion – known as “Hurricane Hazel” – retired at 93 from her role as the mayor of Canadian city Mississauga, after 36 years in office. Now she has renewed her contract as director of the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA), as well as staying on as special advisor to the University of Toronto Mississauga. The GTAA runs Toronto Pearson Airport, Canada’s largest aviation hub which typically sees around 50 million passengers a year.
