No one needs to be silent around the Fords--they create more than enough attention on their own. But I think it's crucial to call out the hypocrisy of the FoFam and for that I (and others, I suspect) won't "just shut up". Turning a blind eye to the malignancy will not make it go away.

Selected guesses as to Doug Ford's mystery endorser (from my mentions): Don Cherry, Lisi, Hologram JFK, Hologram Tupac, Conrad Black…

…Brett Hart, Chris Brown, Donald Trump, Ed the Sock, Talking Subway Train, Patrick Brazeau, Vanilla Ice, Søren Kierkegaard, Justin Bieber…

…Thomas the Tank Engine, Pope Francis, Talking Buses, Karla Ford's rabbi, Jose Canseco, Mike Duffy, Harold the Jewelry Buyer, and Slurpy.

Quite literally - if it is Don Cherry I stop watching HNIC forever.

I just assumed he had Cherry's endorsement, I'll be very disappointed if that's all he has. I was looking forward to Stephen Harper or even Stephen Hawking!
Better not be Cherry, what a let down.:D

I wondered about Harper but don't think he's let Raitt endorse Tory if he was going to endorse Doug.
 
I've been given to understand all living nominees and recipients of The "Geller" Prize are ready to endorse D Ford based on his prodigious capacity for "verbal fiction"....
 
Are we going to see endorsements from the major news outlets this week? Will the Sun dare support Doug? My guess is we may get a Tory trifecta. Not even sure the Star will endorse Chow at this stage.
 
Weird, Sue Ann Levy based a whole column on what that lackluster former mayoral candidate Jane Pittfield thinks of John Tory.

Jimmi, Ms Pitfield took the baton of the right only because no others were willing to. She vacated a ward where she could have run ad infinitum and won (she could have been Toronto's version of Hurricane Hazel in longevity). She made a creditable run against a mayor at the pinnacle of his popularity. Lackluster is not the correct adjective sacrifical is...

Now if you want critisize, look at the 2010 election...She made a major miscalculation running for Councillor in Ward 29 rather than making a triumphant return to Ward 26 against a weak incumbent....
