A subjective list of The Ford's victims just 9 months their reign of error:

DEAD: Transit City, Fort York bridge, Vehicle Registration tax, 2020 Olympic bid

ON LIFE SUPPORT: Waterfront Toronto, Toronto Public Libraries, TCHC, Toronto Atmospheric Fund

THREATENED: the democratic process at City Hall, Pride Week, streetcars, bike lanes, scramble lights, all arts and cultural funding, all urban planning, every city department, city building in general, Toronto's reputation as a tolerant, progressive city.

DISRESPECTED/IGNORED: City Council, the LGBT community, pinkos, socialists, communists, progressives, cyclists, the homeless, the unemployed, taxpayers, citizens and the entire Toronto public (except the one's who call Bug Ford directly, or are their personal friends), Margaret Atwood

Everyone, please feel free to add to the list.

(Mods: I suspect you'll just want to merge this with the main Rob Ford thread, but I feel it's good to focus on different elements of this ongoing trainwreck.)

Don't forget puppies and kittens. The Fords eat them for dinner, after all.

Oh, and old ladies too. They play a game when driving to see who can drive over more old ladies. Extra points if they're wearing NDP orange.

:rolleyes:

^Yer hilarious, Marko. Keep the dazzling wit coming.

Actually, I'm sure that after giving the old ladies the finger, then insulting them, running them over would be the next logical step. As for the puppies, well, I wouldn't put anything past The Frauds.

But do we need abusive parents to become adults? Wouldn't you agree that Toronto was showing more promise under positive, constructive, nurturing and caring "parents" like David Crombie or Miller--or even Barbara Hall?

I think what people mean is that the city's body politic is obviously immature and that it's going to take some hard lessons for it to grow up. For instance, that you can't pay less to have more. Or the same, even.

Wasn't SARS bad enough, now we have to go through The Dark Ages. Our suffering never ends. Any chance we can have a Fordstock, to raise money to fight this goon?

Your suggesting the basis for Ford not being so bad, is that he doesn't eat small animals and old ladies????

What is wrong with you? Standards a bit low? What does his eating habits have to do with it anyway.

Really nfitz? After all the over-the-top rhetoric in your past posts regarding Ford and others, are you actually nitpicking someone else's post?

Due to the cost cutting report released today, we can add a lot more:

ON LIFE SUPPORT: Riverdale Farm, High Park Zoo, day care spaces, windrow clearing, public realm improvements, city museums, library hours.

THREATENED: Blue Night bus network, city grants.

Unlike SARS, this unfolding disaster is self-inflicted. The Fords had great electoral success!

I don't think SARS would have done nearly as well in that democratic forum, but I could be wrong. With the right election slogan, who knows...

Vote SARS. Who brought you a concert to remember? SARS did. Who brought world wide attention to the city? SARS did. Vote SARS, its infectious!
