Rob Ford's Toronto

Status
Not open for further replies.
Now Ford claims he's had a "Come to Jesus" moment, and swears he will never ever drink again. He also claims that "talk is cheap", and that if we don't see a difference in him in 5 months ("at least 30 pounds lighter, bigger arms and chest"), he will "eat his words."

Or his wife, whatever burns off fewer calories.
 
I don't have to remember anything. You're the one who can't let this go. It's possible that Ford will get re-elected. Deal with it.

Very true. It's also possible that Rob Ford will drop out of public life altogether in order to pursue a Doctorate in Analytic Geometry and Calculus at Princeton.

But i wouldn't bet on it.
 
She's great. It's sad though, that the only man who'd ever be appropriate boyfriend material for her would be a Marvel or DC superhero, and they don't exist in real life.

I'll volunteer. :)

I've largely stayed away from this madness today and have worked behind the scenes. Besides speaking with Council staff, I met with a TPS source today regarding information that has begun to clear up over the last week. I became aware that media investigators know where Ford is getting his supply post-Lisi. Since I've heard it from enough sources, I'm going to assume that it's no longer a Police secret: He doesn't call prostitutes for sex. The name of the escort service is known to me, members of the media and the TPS. They're cornering Ford. It won't be long.

Harper is a hack and has no principles other than to try his absolute hardest to use whatever happens on any given day to his partisan advantage.

I imagine that I am mostly preaching to the converted here. Also, I have no special love for Justin Trudeau. Those two things aside, I am still stunned that the PMO thinks they can score points by using the name Trudeau while not mentioning the name Ford, regarding use of illegal drugs. The CPC really needs to be punished for this sin among their many others.

Cornering him for paying for IT? Big deal!

Hope you mean real serious criminal activity, not "getting some"!

Since you mentioned escort service, a few days ago I became privy to information regarding that from someone that knows the person who runs said escort service. I've remained tight-lipped about it, though. I assume we'll hear more about it at some point.
 
I suggest you skip "Ford Nation" and watch the Fords on The National, with Peter Mansbridge.

They're both totally bonkers.

EDIT: I would LOVE to see Rob Ford sit down with a serious journalist, by himself. It's like Doug is there to fill in all the predetermined parts and cliches that Rob forgot to hit on.

Y'know, given the conduct we've witnessed today, I'm now wondering if by the end of the week, we'll have gone from Rob Ford getting his mayoral wings clipped to the Fords being banned altogether from 100 Queen Street West--quite plausible, and the Fords might even be a little "bring it on, the taxpayers will have their say" about it...
 
While Mansbridge went easy on him, he did ask a couple of questions where Ford obviously lied. And it will come back to haunt him as it always does. But I suppose Mansbridge, as the CBC anchor has to remain, or at least give the impression he is unbiased. I think people have forgotten that actual journalism still exists. I'd love to hear Peter's off-air personal comments.

And I can't figure out why people aren't shutting down the Ford's claim that today's events have somehow hurt democracy????????

This has been a great day for democracy, as Council has gotten creative with it to solve a serious problem impeding it. I congratulate them on putting in the effort to draft such legislature.

Council is the democratically elected body that governs the city in a democratic manner.

There's no way that Council could do anything illegal, as the duties of the Mayor is dictated by Council...not provincial legislature. The only thing Council cannot do, is eliminate the position of Mayor or transfer the title of Mayor to anyone else.

The only power the Mayor has, is whatever power Council decides the mayor has....and his/her ability to sway council. And what we have seen here today, probably for the first time ever, is a remarkable situation where the mayor has none of either.

I hope you're even partly right about that.

The Schadenford will be sweeeet.

Let's hope not. That performance in council today was sickening. This has to end.

Any idea on the timeline?
Please and thank you. :)
edit: To clarify, if we were going to have another rally calling on RoFo to GTFO, when would be the best time? Two weeks? If you have any inkling..... :)

Reading comprehension.

I never said it was probable that Ford would be re-elected, only possible, and I said it in the context of a reply to a post about the phenomenon of people voting against their own interests because they have been manipulated into it through propaganda.

Except that said phenomenon seldom has to confront the s**tstorm we're presently witnessing--"presently" as in the last three weeks (or even the last three City Council days), as opposed to the past three years. And at this point, the only "possible" would be extraordinary circumstances a la Germany in 1932/33. (Sorry, Godwin.)
