Mississauga is a city in the Canadian province of Ontario and a suburb of Toronto. It is situated on the shores of Lake Ontario in the Regional Municipality of Peel, bordering Toronto to the east. With a population of 721,599 as of the 2016 census, Mississauga is the sixth-most populous municipality in Canada, third-most in Ontario, second-most in the Greater Toronto Area; the growth of Mississauga is attributed to its proximity to Toronto. During the latter half of the 20th century, the city attracted a multicultural population and built up a thriving central business district, it is home to Toronto Pearson International Airport, Canada's busiest airport, as well as the headquarters of many Canadian and multinational corporations. The name "Mississauga" comes from the Anishinaabe word Misi-zaagiing, meaning " Great River-mouth". Other names such as Sauga in and Mississaugans, in reference to the residents of this city are used. At the time of the arrival of the Europeans in the 1600s, both Iroquoian- and Algonquian-speaking peoples lived in the Credit River Valley area.
One of the First Nations groups the French traders found around the Credit River area were the Algonquian Mississaugas, a tribe from the Georgian Bay area. By 1700 the Mississaugas had driven away the Iroquois, yet during the Beaver Wars they played a neutral or post-emptive role. Toronto Township, consisting of most of present-day Mississauga, was formed on 2 August 1805 when officials from York purchased 84,000 acres of land from the Mississaugas. In January 2010, the Mississaugas and the federal government settled a land claim, in which the band of aboriginal people received $145,000,000, as just compensation for their land and lost income; the original villages settled included: Lakeview, Cooksville, Erindale, Lorne Park, Port Credit and Summerville. This region would become known as Toronto Township. Part of northeast Mississauga, including the Airport lands and Malton were part of Toronto Gore Township. After the land was surveyed, the Crown gave much of it in the form of land grants to United Empire Loyalists who emigrated from the Thirteen Colonies during and after the American Revolution, as well as loyalists from New Brunswick.
A group of settlers from New York City arrived in the 1830s. The government wanted to compensate the Loyalists for property lost in the colonies and encourage development of what was considered frontier. In 1820, the government purchased additional land from the Mississaugas. Additional settlements were established, including: Barbertown, Burnhamthorpe, Derry West, Malton, Meadowvale Village, Mount Charles, Streetsville. European-Canadian growth led to the eventual displacement of the Mississaugas. In 1847, the government relocated them to a reserve in the Grand River Valley, near present-day Hagersville. Pre-confederation, the Township of Toronto was formed as a local government. Except for small villages, some gristmills and brickworks served by railway lines, most of present-day Mississauga was agricultural land, including fruit orchards, through much of the 19th and first half of the 20th century. In the 1920s, cottages were constructed along the shores of Lake Ontario as weekend getaway houses for city dwellers.
In 1937, 1,410.8 acres of land was sold to build Malton Airport. It became Canada's busiest airport which put the end to the community of Elmbank; the Queen Elizabeth Way highway, one of the first controlled-access highways in the world, opened from Highway 27 to Highway 10 in Port Credit, in 1935 and expanded to Hamilton and Niagara in 1939. The first prototypical suburban developments occurred around the same time, in the area south of the Dixie Road/QEW interchange. Development in general moved west from there over time and around established communities. Large-scale developments, such as Erin Mills and Meadowvale sprang up in the 1968 and 1969 respectively. While the Township had many settlements within none of the hamlets were existent, all residents were represented by a singular Township council. To reflect the community's shift away from rural to urban, council converted into a Town in 1968. Port Credit and Streetsville were remained separate, uninterested in ceding their autonomy or being taxed to the needs of a growing municipality.
A 1965 call for public input on naming the town received thousands of letters offering hundreds of different suggestions. The town name was chosen by plebiscite over "Sheridan". Political will, as well as a belief that a larger city would be a hegemony in Peel County, kept Port Credit and Streetsville as independent island towns encircled by the Town of Mississauga. In 1974, both were annexed by Mississauga; that year, the sprawling Square One Shopping Centre opened. On 10 November 1979, a 106-car freight train derailed on the CP rail line while carrying explosive and poisonous chemicals just north of the intersection of Mavis Road and Dundas Street. One of the tank cars carrying propane exploded, since other tank cars were carrying chlorine, the decision was made to evacuate nearby residents. With the possibility of a deadly cloud of chlorine gas spreading through Mississauga, 218,000 people were evacuated. Residents were allowed to return home. At the time, it was the largest peacetime evacuation in North American h

Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare, known as Manhunt, or Hot Pursuit, or Dangerous Chase in some translations, is a 1976 Japanese chase film directed by Junya Satō. It is based on the novel of the same name by Juko Nishimura. Morioka, a prosecutor in Tokyo, is accused of theft by a woman and again by a man; the stolen items are found at his house, much to his bewilderment, he flees out the bathroom window. Morioka's superior revokes his position as prosecutor and calls out a manhunt on him, assigning detective Yamura to the case. Morioka tracks one of his accusers to Makami Village in the Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture but finds her dead. Among her items he finds a wedding photo of her and the other accuser. After Morioka has left, the police arrive and find the body, tracking her husband Yokomichi Keiji back to a town called Kounogi in Hokkaido, where they set up an ambush. Morioka soon manages to escape the chasing police. While moving through the woods, Morioka notices and disarms a tripwire hooked to a shotgun uses it to scare off a bear attacking a woman, stuck up a tree.
The bear chases Morioka into a river. The woman, rescues him and nurses him back to health at her family home. Morioka states that his name is Maeda but Mayumi's father Tonami Yohinori, who wants to run for governor, recognizes him as Morioka and offers to helm. Tonami's assistant Nakayama calls the police in an attempt to help Tonami's political ambitions and Morioka flees the house. Mayumi follows him on horseback and helps him escape, confessing what she has done to Yamura when the police arrive at her house. Yamura follows her to a seaside shanty where Morioka is hiding and forces them back toward her house at gunpoint. While walking they are attacked by a bear and Yamura is clawed. Morioka cauterizes the wound with a burning branch. Yamura asserts that he will still arrest Morioka despite this but Morioka overpowers the weakened Yamura and escapes with Miyumi to a cave hideout. Miyumi's father finds them there and offers his private plane to Morioka so that he can hurry to Tokyo to find Yokomichi.
Tonami withdraws from the race for governor and sends Miyumi to Tokyo under the guise of concluding a business deal for him. Morioka crash lands on a beach near Mito, sneaks past police roadblocks on a truck, makes his way through the woods to Tokyo, he is helped by an unknown woman who recognizes him from the wanted posters. The next night Morioka is spotted by police in Tokyo and chased through the crowded streets before being rescued by Miyumi on horseback leading a pack of horses that crashes through a shield wall set up by the police; the next day Yamura arrives at Miyumi's hotel and shows Morioka a copy of Yokomichi's medical record from a mental hospital where he is being treated for paranoid schizophrenia under the name Suzuki Takeshi. He states that the hospital is operated by the Nagaoka Company owned by Representative Nagaoka Ryosuke. Representative Ryosuke was speaking with Representative Asakura before Asakura jumped out a window in an alleged suicide, an explanation that Morioka always doubted.
The day before Asakura died, a large amount of money was extorted from him by the Tonan company, a company that purchased guinea pigs from Yokomichi Keiji. Morioka and Mayumi escape from the hotel. Yamura's superior reprimands him and reminds him of the five-year prison sentence, mandatory for making deals with suspects. Morioki and Mayumi drive to the mental hospital, where they pretend that Morioki is her husband and have him committed; the doctor, Vice President Sakai, recognizes Morioki and taunts him by showing him Yokomichi, rendered incoherent by a strong sedative. Sakai force feeds the same sedative to Morioka and imprisons him in the mental hospital as a schizophrenic under the name Tsuyama and refuses to release him to Mayumi. Morioka intentionally spills some of the pills given to him, he slips a pill into Mayumi's hand when she visits and she takes it to Yamura. Representative Ryosuke visits the hospital and is given a demonstration of the effects of the sedative known as "AX" that blocks parts of the brain responsible for will and makes those who take it obedient to commands.
The doctor demonstrates this by commanding a patient to stab himself in the arm, which the patient does. The patient headed the protests against Ryosuke's company but the new drug will be used as a means to get rid of people like him. Morioka, vomiting up the pills after swallowing them, is instructed to write a suicide note taken to a roof and instructed to jump. Morioka walks to the edge of the roof but instead of jumping he explains that he now understands that Asakura was convinced to jump after being given drugs by Nagaoka; the orderlies attempt to strangle Morioka as Hosoi arrive. Sakai runs from Yamura and commits suicide by jumping off the roof and Ryosuke's assistant Doto is found dead as a result of suicide as well. Morioka and Hosoi catch Ryosuke preparing to fly to South Korea with a briefcase full of dollars and Morioka explains that they know Asakura was blackmailing Ryosuke about the drug "AX", he continues that Ryosuke knew that he did not believe it was a suicide and therefore sent the Yokomichis to stop him.
Morioka recognizes Ryosuke's assistants as the men who killed Mrs. Yokomichi and shot at him in Hokkaido. Yamura orders Hosoi to arrest Ryosuke's men and Ryosuke tells his men that he will get them out of jail the next day. Ryosuke attempts to leave for his flight but Yamura pulls out his gun and commands Ryosuke to jump out the window but Ryosuke fights back so Morioka and Yamura
