I'll be there the 13th. Straight from work in my work boots. Maybe I can boot his arse out of office.
An aside: this constant political reference to "taxpayers" offends me as a taxpayer. What, people who disagree with you aren't taxpayers? I pay 12k a year in income tax alone....not to mention property and sales taxes. Why do I get labeled an enemy of "taxpayers"? It's such rubbish discourse.
I have zero concern about what Rob Ford needs to do for the good of his own health or the good of his family. It's not about his addictions anymore. It is about his criminal associations and his pattern of dishonesty. There is a photo of him with a murdered man and when asked about it he lied. He refuses to answer any questions. He is the chief lawmaker for the city and he refuses to speak to police. This is unacceptable. It should be unacceptable to those who share political office with him. Any politician with any integrity should not sit on an executive body with a head executive who won't cooperate with police when he's under investigation. I want no therapeutic babble about how he should step aside for a short time until he works out his personal issues. He should resign, and since he never will, other politicians should isolate him. I'm very disappointed today that there has been little sign of this happening in any kind of meaningful way.
Did Towhey and Price give contradictory testimony about Lisi?
I promise you, I'm no MetroMan, but like I said some of you may find this tidbit interesting.
Ford will be the topic on the Daily Show tonight and 22 Minutes tomorrow
Tonight! Mayors come in all different shapes and sizes and amounts of being addicted to crack. #CelebrateTheDifference
from https://www.facebook.com/22Minutes Tues on 22: "Rob Ford" and "Sandro Lisi" deny being live on TV while they are very much live ones on TV! (Tune in: Tuesday, Nov 5, 8:30 pm, CBC.)
Tomorrow, another prominent staffer in Ford's office is going to be revealed as having allegedly participated in obtaining the video. Separately, media investigations are looking into whether this staffer may be a dealer. Could there be another Lisi already employed by Rob Ford, working at City Hall? Stay tuned, the roller coaster ride is about to dip!
Another possible charge of extortion? Interesting to see how much jail time in total everyone connected to the mayor will get after this party's over.
The point of the matter is that Ford has loaded his staff with alleged criminals and if the cops lay obstruction charges regarding attempts to obtain the video, Rob won't be the only one coming out in cuffs.
Yeah, maybe Price. And maybe his "salary" isn't paid by the city. Mid level dealers regularly make 130k a year in profit.
When that person is revealed, the ITO should have fewer redactions.
