I just did a search for Rob Ford at change.org and found four post mortem petitions.
Immortalize him with a statue - 441 supporters.
Name a Scarborough subway station after him - 347 supporters.
Rename Centennial Park after him - 492 supporters.
I see a lot of people now saying we should've had more compassion for him when he was alive. If I recall correctly every media narrative was urging him to go to rehab years ago when his scandal first emerged but he refused and launched some big cover up campaign. Didn't help his cause that he always presented himself as the toughest anti-drugs politicians of them all and turned out to be a huge hypocrite.You gotta laugh at all the revisionists who've come crawling out from under their rocks now that it's "safe" to do so. Their objections to those of us who refuse to whitewash Ford's behavior from the last several years amounts to, "Who ya gonna believe? Me or your lying eyes?"
Christ, those numbers aren't exactly impressive, are they? And how many of them are far right cranks who don't even live in Toronto? I persist in thinking that any mainstream politicos who refuse to pander to these cretins have nothing to worry about as regards any kind of backlash.
I told you Doug called the Vatican, I guess the pope was already booked. Common folks indeed.LeDrew just said the Cardinal would be attending (sounds like the priest from Renata's church is taking part in the service) and the Archbishop is doing the service. Good God.
It's tough when aHave you ever seen a media figure as close to a politician as Warmington is/was to Ford?
He's really been on his high horse since Rob passed, lecturing journalists about how they should've treated him, claiming Rob had won some war against a "smear campaign". Guy's a joke and he doesn't even know it.
