Rob Ford's Toronto

(Also, a side note: I think I'm up to like my 3rd or 4th second-hand confirmation, someone who knows someone who totally bought drugs from Doug back in the day. I dunno how these boobs ever thought they could hide it and I can't imagine how hard it must be for Tory to not say something every time Doug rants about how transparent his resume is. [I know it's easy for Chow because even if someone handed her campaign verified VHS footage of Rob and Doug openly dealing, she'd bury it, saying it's an irrelevant distraction and doesn't do anything to help the children and the lady who can't get on the crowded streetcar.])

This is why I think it's so incredibly crazy that, if Doug was anywhere near as prolific as it sounds like he was in the 80s, no one thus far has been able to solidify the teenage drug mogul story. The Globe and Mail did their story, which was well reported; Doug did his typical "all lies and I'm going to sue but not really"; and that was essentially it. In the simplest terms: why isn't there so much more on this??
 
Maybe I am guilty of thinking that The Wire was a documentary ... but is it not Police 101 that when a suspect takes off running with a GARBAGE BAG FULL OF SUSPECTED EVIDENCE that some cops should follow the suspect and other cops should follow the garbage bag?!

I'm pretty sure it's safe to assume the garbage bag full of weed going missing was not just the result of criminal cunning.

All I can imagine is perhaps a whole whack of folks are waiting for the next couple weeks maybe - I mean if I had dirt, waiting until the day before would be cool.
 
Husband is watching CP24. Report on the debate during the 11 pm newscast shows Tory, Chow and Goldkind speaking, shows Renee being ejected, but nothing about Tory's comment.

They showed it on Global News. It was Peter Kim from Global News that asked the question.

Used to subscribe (print) to both Star & G&M. Quit the Star for a year or so after they editorialized against proportional representation by offering up Israel and Italy as counter arguments (Disingenuous!!!!). Then had to quit the G&M when they refused to fire Margaret "The Plagiarist" Wente. So back to the Star. Definitely the lesser of evils. (Will never subscribe to The National Socialist Post. [link included for all you youngsters at home ;-) ] )

So let's absorb this for a sec. Deco was under surveillance over two decades....20 years ago! For what? Are voters gonna ask that question? TPS knows about the gumba bros all these years. Who's covering up? How deep does this go? Absorb.....absorb......capiche!
 
I look forward to Doug's response, especially since he is trying to make Tory look like a bad businessman.

Well, if he had to have a religious schools moment this was the night to do it.

Agreed. A verbal gaffe will pale compared to the Deco problems.
 
I didn't see the exchange that prompted this but I'm guessing it has to do with Chow - who goes by her "maiden name" and so should be addressed as Ms. She is not "Mrs. Chow", to call her "Mrs." you'd have to use the surname Leyton, which she has chosen not to do. I always address women as Ms. unless I know that they prefer Mrs. (I hate, HATE the use of "ma'am" - it makes me feel about a million years old and I wish retail staff would be instructed never, ever to use it).

I wonder if I offended Margaret Atwood when, upon running into her outside of her house, I referred to her as Madam Atwood. She didn't seem to mind. I'm 29 and she's...um....not so 29, so I thought it appropriate.

Perhaps because--and this is what I understand it to be--he was no big deal back in his day. I wasn't around in that day so I can't speak from experience, but a small suburban plaza hash dealer? Dime a dozen for those where I grew up in Scarborough in the 90s.
