If at first you don't you succeed subverting democracy:

Ford eyes casino, ferris wheel on waterfront
"TORONTO - Doug Ford isn’t ruling out gambling on another debate at City Hall over a casino and a ferris wheel on the city’s waterfront if he’s elected mayor."

On the lighter side of mayoral elections:

Ontario mayoral candidate praises Hitler's leadership in online comments
"KINGSTON, Ont. ─ An Ontario mayoral candidate is defending comments he made on Facebook in which he praised Adolf Hitler's leadership skills and suggested deporting 'on their inner tubes' people who don't adopt Canadian values."

Way to go, Amherstview!

No, seriously, that is not the lighter side of anything ...

Yes what he did was the worst thing that has happened in the history of man, what I'm saying is that EVEN HOW ATROCIOUS HIS BELIEFS WERE he stood by his decisions.

THE ACTIONS WERE 100% WRONG. But if that belief and cause was say doing anything necessary to cure cancer. Or save the starving children of the world ... That type of leadership would be celebrated.

That is awful and hideous bullshit. It is not funny.
 
Sorry for the dumb question, but what is the big deal about releasing a donor list? Is it just to verify that contributions are legit (i.e., within allowable amounts for private citizens and corporations)? Any back story on this would be much appreciated :)

A new poll of Toronto voters finds 38 per cent support John Tory for mayor, 32 per cent support Ford & 20 per cent support Chow. #cp24vote
 
remember that song from the wizard of oz?

i want to rework it for monday night, so that instead of "ding dong" it begins with "zing! done!"

but creatively, i'm stuck there

I continue to be astounded that Chow is polling so badly. How can more people apparently prefer a Ford?

And please, for those saying they will miss people, I urge you to explore the rest of UT. There are many interesting threads about a variety of topics. Many of us have been posting here pre-Ford and will continue to be here post-Ford. Stay, check out some other threads.
 
Thanks for the great post. I think we should all reveal who we are :). Here's me:

Btw, salsa is not my real name. Here's the story: One evening after school, I was with a group of guys at their place. At the time I was new to alcohol, and whatever drinks I had that night were harder than I thought. I also didn't know that it's not a good idea to mix different kinds of drinks. Of course I got in a drunken stupor, and the last thing I remember doing was raving to my banging house music using someone's speaker. After that, well... I did end up puking. The next day I had no memory of what happened between the raving and the... you know. The guys said I made out with a girl, but I don't know if they were just messing with me or were telling the truth. They started calling me 'salsa' instead of my real name (even to this day), because apparently I wouldn't stop dancing. Actually, I happen to be a salsa and latin dancer, which they knew about before, however they've never seen my dance moves until that drunken stupor ;). So yeah, that's how I got my nickname.

I await the rest of you to share the face behind the name. Who's next? :p

You all already know who I am thanks to McRobb... Here's a funny one from a rough morning in my youth after partying till the early morning hours. The long-haired fella beside me is the guy who kicked Sandro's head in.

What's in Doub Ford's system.

Oh I should have been clear that I meant Robe will go on the worst drunken binge since chemo.
I allege that Doug also has "something" in his system most of the time too-besides anger that is.:D

How about sexism, racism, homophobia, ageism, anti-intellectualism, anti-semitism, elitism. and many other isms we never imagined.

Oh Yes: Perhaps he drinks too much too, it is obviously in the family.

PinkLucy, I'm also in shock that Ford is doing better than Chow. I hope it turns out differently on Monday, because if he gets more votes than Olivia, there is seriously something wrong. How did we go from voting for Miller to voting for Rob and Doug Ford in less than 10 years?
Maybe Casita is right, we should check the water supply.

Ford says his campaign's internal polling numbers show him in a dead heat with John Tory.

I think Doug's lying to convince supporters that he has a chance so they show up to the polls.
