Rob Ford's Toronto

I hate to say it but the only way we will be permanently rid of RoFo is death. I think that if he runs again and he stays clean, he will win. I had been talking to a friend in November and he said to me "do you realize that without the crack, he would get voted in again" and I believe he was right.

I think RoFo is either in a huge amount of denial or aware that he doesn't have much time left but that if he keeps talking about running it might motivate some people to vote for a Ford, any Ford, if he buys the farm before he has a chance to run again.

Then again, he was unable to complete his run for mayor and the Ford appeal didn't carry over to Doug enough. Who else might there be?
 
But then again, and esp. if we're to speak in "posthumous" terms by 2018, keep in mind that there remains a difference among Ford Nations, i.e. don't overuse Flagglandia as a proxy for Fordlandia.

Yes. There are different groups of Ford supporters and some of them can't stand each other.

As in any political party.

I know TO does not have political parties, but FN is close to an unofficial opposition. Anyone in the bloodline can lead it.

Out of aprox. 70 mayoral candidates, only JT came out ahead of FN. I don't see anyone else on the horizon who could mount a serious challenge to FN in an election.
 
Maybe it's some neurons misfiring, but wasn't there something in an ITO about the undercover cop trying to buy drugs from the dry cleaner, and they had to wait on a delivery from Hamilton?

It sounds kinda familiar but they had tons of dope on Supertest Road where the dry cleaner had his permit. Maybe a different supplier?

Yup...

Dascaluta and Barbudan Dima (both from Hamilton) were eventually charged with drug trafficking as a result of the dry cleaning probe.

No immediate connections between the two of them and Gravelle.

Deputy Mayor Denzil Minnan-Wong moves a motion that council will only pay Giorgio Mammoliti's legal fees up to $20,000 #TOpoli

F you DMW. This guy doesn't deserve a dime from taxpayers. I thought you were a fiscal conservative.

Council votes 37 to 1 to create 3 additional deputy mayors (Rob Ford votes no) #TOpoli

Glenn De Baeremaeker, Pam McConnell & Vince Crisanti are now also deputy mayors (along with No. 1 deputy mayor Denzil Minnan-Wong) #TOpoli

Well, that is done.

Rob Ford says election not just fought on transit. "That was not a referendum on transit" he says. #TOpoli

For the most part, it was.

Rob Ford tells council that SmartTrack comes down to fancy streetcars. Warns that the plan will rip up roads. #throwbackthursday

I like the snark!
