Rob Ford and the Hogtown Horror Show
A few days ago a foul smell had the good citizens of Toronto gasping and choking, and wondering where it was coming from.
Perhaps the smell was the ghost of the garbage strike, awakened by spring’s windy caress.
Or maybe it was more sinister, bubbling up from the bowels of Lake Ontario.
Whatever the case, when the citizens of the GTA awoke Wednesday to a crisp sunny day, they smelled crap.
The Ministry of the Environment finally declared it was just the smell of Spring in Hogtown.
But of course I blamed this Con hog...
Because you can't put lipstick on this one. It's an absolute horror show.
And ever since he came to power the stench has been overwhelming. A mixture of right-wing manure, stinky decisions, rancid gravy.
City council’s compliance audit committee unanimously voted Friday to order a full audit of Rob Ford’s campaign expenses, marking the first time a sitting City of Toronto mayor has had to undergo this kind of scrutiny.
And to make matters even more revolting, the pungent odour of homophobia. Which is where I leave Matt to pick up the story.
Can you believe it eh? A porker like that calling himself the Mayor of Toronto.
You know I've been a critic of the gay pride parade in the past. I'd like it to be less commercial and more political. But I've never felt like marching more than I do this year.

This city belongs to ALL the people who live here.
And we will RESIST...
