    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Hmm. I wonder why he doesn't apply his "if you have nothing to hide you should talk to the cops" logic to himself.

    Geez, no it hasn't. Every time there's a drug or gang bust in the GTA people are on here suggesting it's related to the Fords. And I agree with zang that the Dawe thing was long ago discredited. In my line of work I frequently see the police take nothing and build it into to something (that...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    People are reported missing by the dozens, every day. Very, very rarely do police ever report their safe location. Seriously, people. I stopped coming here as often because the conspiracy theories and constant suggestion that every criminal activity in the GTA is somehow linked to the Fords...

    From everything I've heard 9 months - since September of 2014. I think the dumbbells in Hamilton were confusing it with the unrelated 2 year 'Ndrangheta bust the day before.

    Hate to burst everyone's bubble - but it has nothing to do with the Fords. As a lawyer with a busy criminal law practice, I can confirm that there is a lot of crime in Toronto that has nothing to do with the Fords.

    It's debatable, but I don't think so. The ban prohibits the publication of "evidence", and I don't think the name of a witness is evidence. But I think some may disagree, so I think they're taking a risk.

    Bans are and have always been routine for preliminary hearings, which is what this ban is on. It's to protect the jury pool from becoming tainted. It will be lifted at the conclusion of the trial.

    With the greatest of respect, as a criminal defence lawyer I think I'm a tad more familiar with the process than Goldsbie. A judicial pretrial is required before you can set a trial date. And you can't set a judicial pretrial until your first appearance in the SCJ.

    Same for everyone. There are various meetings and procedures you have to go through - each requiring a separate court appearance - before you're allowed to set a trial date.

    They're still going and will definitely be continuing tomorrow. I gather Ford was popping in and out all day... and warned he might miss the rest of the meeting due to "serious issues". They haven't gotten to the Crean report yet.

    Jennifer Pagliaro ‏@jpags · 6m6 minutes ago Rob Ford sends a message to constituents about his last council meeting before surgery - copy/pastes article from Ezra Levant's The Rebel.

    The buy money proves nothing. Because it was given to the co-accused, not to Lisi. And the cop had no admissible evidence against Lisi. He talked about conversations with the dry cleaner. That's not admissible against Lisi.

    I admittedly haven't been following all that closely, but I'm not sure there's been any admissible evidence that Lisi supplied the drugs. Speculation and hearsay don't cut it.

    Yes, it is. Some judges keep their cards close to their chests, others let their thoughts be known.

    I think that's actually a trial rather than a preliminary hearing.

    Agree. And wish granted - it's going to trial.

    As far as I am aware, she hasn't been given ANY evidence other than medical reports. In a court of law, twitter and the news aren't evidence.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Yes, but remember Ford isn't the one on trial here. He is simply one of many witnesses in this case. Witnesses are generally accommodated by the courts when there is medical evidence supporting that they should be. I can assure you that Justice Greene isn't doing Rob Ford any favours because...
