    Rob Ford's Toronto

    I'm really hoping that Forum, Nanos, et al are all busy in the next few days.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Not much time for a prediction, but here's my thought: If Rob Ford jumps in to the council race for Ward 2, I'm assuming that they already know the mass is benign, but didn't believe he had a chance of beating Tory, and this is a face-saving move. I won't speculate as to whether this was...

    Indeed. As a York alum, I am facepalming *so* hard.

    I'm also having trouble believing that this is an actual threat - although couldn't the councillor who quit refer to Adam Vaughan? I don't have any insider knowledge, but I've certainly heard that he had become fed up with the circus atmosphere and that played a role in his decision to run in...

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Mayoral Race

    I'm pretty sure I voted using a paper Scantron sheet that was fed in to an electronic reader last time around - felt like I was back in university completing an exam. :P

    Good grief. There is so, so much wrong with this. (Even leaving aside the implausible claim that Deco has done business with almost every company in Ontario and the way Rob's relationship with the family business depends on whether he's promoting his corporate savvy and entrepreneurial spirit...

    FFS. I wonder if he's going to keep insisting that he was never a WT board member.

    Yep. A few years ago I stubbed my toe quite badly - half my foot was bruised, the toe itself was disturbingly swollen and even more bruised - but when I called Telehealth Ontario, they advised that while it was probably at least fractured, if it wasn't sticking out at a weird angle, there was...

    Mmmhmm. I am not a social worker or an addiction worker, and of course I stand outside this situation (despite following it obsessively), but I have done research with substance abusers and social workers and I'm finding it pretty hard to believe that a man with years of poly-substance abuse...

    My thoughts exactly. I turned the stream off when Chris Selley announced they were closing off with "What is your position on the Municipal Land Transfer Tax?" I know Ford is just going to bluster about how he wants to kill it but the lefties on council won't let him, and his supporters in the...

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Council Races

    So far, Daniel Winer and Dory Chalhoub are running.

    Agreed, but that was my opinion before the story broke as well.

    So, here's the big CBC scoop. Feeling underwhelmed?

    Won't speculate on what or how much, but he does sound seriously out of it to me. More so than yesterday.

    I'm curious about whether the request came from Stintz, given that this was Stintz's position a few days ago: If the request came from Ford, I wonder if he - or perhaps the comms director? - thinks that it will head off some of the criticism.
