Rob Ford's Toronto

Not open for further replies.
This stuff about the Ford tradition of giving cars to their kids makes me think of what Miller got wrong with the VRT. I've always felt that applying it to every car punished people some people who had no option to own a car, e.g. parents of young children, people who need them for work etc. IMO, the VRT should have been treated like a lifestyle/luxury tax. For example, every household in T.O. could have one car registered to the address, tax free. Registration taxes could then be applied to additional cars, as ownership becomes more of a choice than a necessity.

I suprised the D Ford has not advocated for an eBRT at municipal level...All those scofflaws getting away with driving the roads for free...
 
The problem is, although he claims otherwise, his wife is not Jewish. Interesting that we have not heard from her.

JT and his wife were interviewed by Stephen LeDrew on CP2Ford yesterday, I believe.

I've lived in Toronto for more than 40 years, and I don't remember the spouses of mayors ever being a big thing.

Except perhaps for Marilyn Lastman, but for all the wrong reasons.

I've lived in Toronto longer than that, and I don't remember the spouses of mayors ever being a big thing either.

Not until Doug dragged his wife's religion into it.

“My wife was furious at John Tory’s statement — it’s disgusting.”

I wonder if she really is furious? And if so, at who?

With Rob and Doug, politics in Toronto has become a whole new ball game. And they want to see mayoral powers increased!

They're also all lawyers and doctors and in my case, university professors!
 
Off topic

An article by Mr Moran (too funny), about how great Doug is or something...
See comment by Steve K for what is wrong with you 'folks'. You've rejected godliness!
"citizens of ON in general and those of Toronto in particular are mainly ungodly spiritually blind ignoramuses.The Holy Spirit impressed upon my mind people of Ontario & Toronto are getting the kind of wasteful / corrupt leadership they deserve for rejecting godliness."

from there I ended up here. Most of you probably have seen it but I am curious as to why councilor office rent has such a spread in price. I guess that depends on the ward in which they are renting? (Didn't want to annoy r93? by ending sentence with preposition :)

Mammoliti, Giorgio $43,398.74 and Perruzza, Anthony $49,329.52 for office setup :confused:

I really hope this was meant as a parody.

If not ... really?

Ford family shopping photos making the rounds on Fbook, apparently to counter Doug Ford's dislike of the elite http://imgur.com/a/PXU7h?gallery

I guess someone managed to save all these pics before the accounts went private. Nothing says anti-elitism like Chanel purses and Gucci watches.

See Doug claim they're all secondhand or knock-offs and that the family vacation in Monte Carlo was a Groupon in 3...2...1...

And she was never furious at his brother-in-law for using the k-word so casually outside the family, knowing her own background?

Yup, just everyday common folks.

I wonder how many cops will be on hand in case any sore losers show up? A celebration will be like rubbing salt in a wound. After seeing the FN howler monkeys at the debates, this sounds like it has the potential for violence. I would stay the hell away from it.

Mayor Rob Ford says 2014 campaign will 'be a bloodbath'

Win or lose, will Crazy Town go "High Noon" - FN style?

My aunt is a university professor at St FX in Antigonish. She teaches some kind of medical ethics course.

I am just saying that he made a huge mistake and it will cost him. Well, unless you are Neil Flagg and care more about the Ford dynasty than anything else.

I bet that includes this year's model of Queen's Quay Karen: 'Kelly Gail Ford', who initially objected to Goldkind's presence at the debate due to his being unknown and also his appearance (in not so subtle crypto-bigoted terms). Then Ford made his claim regarding Karla, KGF wanted to know why Goldkind wasn't religious and talking about religion because, uh, it's important in politics. Now it seems that Goldkind isn't allowed to object to anti-semitism because he's not Jewish enough, but Doug's subsequent clarification to the effect that 'my wife's Jewish ... kinda ... way back, not really ... shut up!' is enough?

Gosh - had no idea I needed to be religious OR Jewish to object to anti-semitism (or any other type of discrimination), had you? Good thing we have FN to educate us... NOT.
