"McRobb was not keen to speaking with us. A lawyer (not hers) accompanied her to her truck and she drove off."

McRobb also said she visited Toronto recently, but has "never been to city hall."

"She did speak with me outside of court before her appearance. Said she has not spoken to both Doug and @TOMayorFord ."

Looks like a monster truck. Expensive to own and operate.

Another fine example of the Ford Cult using violence, great example for kids; I have a big stick so I'm right.

Guy haranguing invites me outside, tells me I'm not a man when I don't respond, wound up to a spittle-flecked degree.
 
GFL still making a mess...

Not the CBC, 680news.com or CP24 -- only the Hamilton Spec is bothering to name the company in it's article about the crash -- and mention the company's safety record:



what will it take to get these guys off the roads.

Saw one of their trucks up in Grey County the other day ... stopped at the top of a hill. Good job blocking traffic and visibility, guys!
 
There’s rarely much pay-off in losing, but for FoFam in 2014 there may not be much in winning either.

For the Fords, it's all about Ego with a Capital "E." Logic has little to do with it.

Except that at these, uh, hate to say it, "ethno-fests", I'm not sure how many of the swarmers fit that categorization, which requires a certain, uh, "Western cynicism". By comparison, there's a lot more pidgin earnestness here--something that comes with being pretty much off-grid re a lot of the pariah-earning issues we're possessed with. Remember: they're mostly ethnic-media or CP24 in their local news consumption habits. They don't grasp "subtleties"--or else, they're conditioned to view them with suspicion.

Whatever it is about Ford, it resonates with them as "beloved leader figure" in the same way that domes and spires and columns and minarets--no matter how cheap and crude and tacky--can resonate more with them than the subtleties of Maki and Correa at Aga Khan.

Much of my assumptions in regards to Ford and his "fans" are based on the crowds that were following him at last year's Taste of the Danforth. Those people were very openly mocking and laughing at the drunken clown as they pursued him and took pictures. It was a heart-warming sight. :D

But, yeah, the more earnest types supporting him have a more complicated - and toxic - relationship with...well, reality. In particular, it's maddening to witness visible minorities and dark skinned immigrants cutting their own throats by sucking up to such an open and unapologetic racist. I understand they have their own self-serving reasons, in which they're selective about which facets of his character they're willing to acknowledge, as long as he's willing to pander to their worst instincts and stroke their egos. I find I have little sympathy for them. It's the same old story: They're willing to support the bastard until he finally crosses a line that that's offensive to them. In which case, the first thing out of their mouths is some variation of "Why didn't anybody warn us about this guy?!?!"
 
Another day at council, another bundle of Ford lies.

Councillor Ford now says conflict of interest cases against brother Mayor Ford cost close to a million. Earlier Ford said half a million.

Wasn't she claiming to be broke just a couple of weeks ago? She hasn't worked in months, recently got out of rehab and she drives that behemoth from Bala to Toronto and back. Assuming this isn't her first DUI, her insurance must be outrageous plus it probably costs her $250. just to fill that thing with gas. She sure is living large for someone down on her luck. Maybe she's a trust fund baby, like Rob.

All dutifully reported by the City Hall Steno Pool, aka most of the media.

There was also this: "Crown Attorney Ted Carlton said a new charge is also being pursued by authorities. OPP Constable Jessica Drake tells the Moose it’s a charge of Dangerous Driving which was sworn in last week. That charge too stems from the May 20th incident."
