Rob Ford: The Beast and the Animals
I try to ignore him. I look away from his ghastly image. I close my ears every time he opens his monstrous pie hole.
I try to delude myself into thinking that I can't possibly be living in Stephen Harper's Canada AND Rob Ford's Toronto at the same time.
I tell tourists I'm from Montreal, and like them I'm just visiting.
But it's no good eh? I just can't ignore an animal show like this one.
The Ford brothers used their two-hour talk radio show Sunday to assail the media, go after opponents on council and take shots at tree huggers, lefties and elitists, but the mayor still would not directly answer to allegations he has been misusing taxpayer-funded staff and city resources to help with his football teams.
Speaking for the first time since the football firestorm erupted last week, Mayor Rob Ford joked he and his wife half expected to roll over in bed that morning and see the media looking in their windows.
Especially since that crass, braying jackass is still threatening to kill my friend Jake...
And some of the other animals at Far Enough Farm.
Since I wrote that story, the farm was given a reprieve until the end of this year, to give its friends a chance to raise money to save it.
And a Concert Fundraiser is planned for next weekend.
It's all very encouraging, but when I swung by the farm the other day to visit Jake.
And my new friend Boot, the recently retired police horse...
I couldn't help feeling sad.
For the beautiful little farm that could be destroyed.
And the gentle creatures who could die with it.
So I made this little video for them...
Aren't they beautiful eh?
Save the poor animals of Far Enough Farm. And all that is decent and gentle about this country.
Defeat the cruel Cons. Hope for a harsh verdict.
Put this beast out to pasture...
