Ten of thousands are expected to gather in Mississauga, Ont., on Sunday to cheer tennis star Bianca Andreescu.
Andreescu, 19, won the U.S. Open last weekend, becoming the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title. She was born in Mississauga, was a student there and trained at the city’s Ontario Racquet Club.
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie is expected to give Andreescu a key to the city and to unveil a street sign named “Andreescu Way” in her honour. The street itself has yet to be selected.
The She The North rally will be held in Celebration Square, 300 City Centre Dr. You can catch the livestream right here starting at 4:30 p.m.
Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is expected to attend the rally. According to his schedule, he will deliver remarks.
