    Rob Ford's Toronto

    So you were breaking a law...the point of carding is that people are stopped without doing anything illegal. Let me offer up another white man's experience. I've lived on Parliament St. near Regent Park for the last 5 years...never once been stopped or looked at sideways by a cop.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Also lots of immigration from Haiti and French-speaking African countries over the past ten years. It's not always evident because many also have another native language they speak so you don't always hear the French- but trust me, the Francophone population is growing (look at French school...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Tory's party attendees applauding all other candidates, including both Fords. Nice words to Olivia as well from Tory. Such a contrast to the crowd at Doug's party.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Did the Rob Ford victory party crown in 2010 also boo Smitherman? (I remember booing of a picture of Smitherman and his family though I'm not sure if that was the case). Anyway, the point is that it's incredibly immature. Chow was very gracious to Tory and the people in the room certainly did...

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Mayoral Race

    I agree. While I think it makes sense to take into consideration the voting system in order to vote strategically, and sometimes it means voting for one's second or third choice- it also makes sense to vote for the person one likes the most- the will to support a candidate and do something...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Tabatha has it backwards. Why do we pay attention to the royals? It's much more relevant to be interested in health information of elected officials.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Didn't Jack mentor Ford somewhat when Ford first became a counsellor? I have no doubt that Olivia abhors Ford as mayor but also that she has a certain soft spot for him, considering also his affection for and connection to Jack. I mean, people are complex creatures. I think that's it's likely...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    http://www.thestar.com/news/city_hall/toronto2014election/2014/09/15/andray_domise_ward_2s_antiford.html Article in the Star about Andray Domise. His criticisms of Ford are exactly what an ignorant "I like Ford because he keeps taxes low. P.S. I don't read any " person needs to hear. ' I know...

    Holy shit that is stunning indeed.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Sympathy for Rob for possibly having cancer but it's pretty insulting that he is arrogant enough to run for council knowing that he's probably too ill. Of course he'll probably win. "Doug also believes in standing up for his family no matter what." When will they realize that this is not an...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    I almost wonder if Rob Ford's unhealthy and train-wreck life is actually what makes a lot of people like him, and why crack-smoking and lying haven't hurt his base very much. That out of some kind of deep insecurity, they are intimidated by the people they perceive as "elite" and like that Rob...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    You're right. I'm a casual follower and sometimes commenter here. Usually it's a fantastic discussion, but thinking that a hospital somehow willingly put their reputation on the line to lie about Ford is so ridiculous is boggles the mind. If they say that they did a scan and found a tumor, then...

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    I've come to accept that when voting, you need to consider the candidates as well as the form of voting system in that particular election. If Ford and Tory are neck-and-neck, with Chow way way behind, then voting for Tory will be the only meaningful thing to do- IF your biggest priority is...

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    Our city will start getting back to normal. Council will work together on most projects with a healthy amount of sincere debate, and the requisite amount of childish bullshit. Tory should be a reasonable mayor. He's smart enough and at least somewhat open-minded. I do think being a rich business...

    Totally reasonable.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Let me clarify a bit- I don't have a problem with people joking about Ford, or political cartoons, or sarcasm that exposes his hipocrisy and lies. I'm thinking more of the "I can't believe you'd invite a drug addict to your event" - as if drug addicts in general have nothing to say and no worth...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Good point, and I'm all for treating people with addictions and criminal associations with as much compassion and understanding as is constructive. But that cannot include putting students at risk. And if I were a school employee or a person responsible for youth, I'd sure as hell be trying to...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    I'm pretty unimpressed that a volunteer coach would show up at a school inebriated and that this so-called leader of youth wouldn't 1) be immediately dismissed from the position 2) have the police called on him if he started up his car. Good on the school board for eventually letting him go...

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Mayoral Race

    I'm finding it hard to imagine that she would be an attractive candidate for a federal party.

    City fatigue?

    Fellow Nova Scotian here. It's all relative. I was talking to a colleague from Mexico City today who said that she's never got the feeling of overwhelming business here in Toronto like she experiences in Mexico City. To her, it's a small place. I've been in Toronto about 8 years and I love the...
