Rob Ford and the Crack Cocaine Video
He has been drunk as a skunk in public.
He has given women and children the finger.
He is a crass, vulgar bigot, and the worst Mayor Toronto has ever known.
Now let Rob Ford explain this one.
A cellphone video that appears to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine is being shopped around Toronto by a group of Somali men involved in the drug trade.
“I’m f---ing right-wing,” Ford appears to mutter at one point. “Everyone expects me to be right-wing. I’m just supposed to be this great.…” and his voice trails off. At another point he is heard calling Trudeau a “fag.” Later in the 90-second video he is asked about the football team and he appears to say (though he is mumbling), “they are just f---ing minorities.”
And if those allegations are true, explain what he was doing in that kind of company. And why he feels that way about the kids he coaches...
Or explain this bizarre behaviour.
Minutes after Mayor Rob Ford arrived at a contentious community council meeting in Etobicoke on Tuesday evening, he bolted out of his seat, sprinted up an aisle, and left the building — to wander around the parking lot and slap “Rob Ford Mayor” fridge magnets on the doors of cars.
For this could only happen in Ford's Toronto eh? A mad house if ever there was one.
And so could this foulness.
Councillor Doug Ford is warning Torontonians that a shower-equipped bicycle station to go under Nathan Phillips Square will turn into a “bathhouse.”
Later, during heated debate on the council floor that focused on the cost of the project, Councillor Ford shouted: “It is going to turn into a bathhouse . . . there is going to be hanky-panky. I guarantee it.”
Because only Doug and Rob Ford could combine homophobia with their hatred of cyclists.
In a city full of gay people, and memorials like this one.
And only Cons like them could be so brutish, and so disgusting.
Oh boy. You know the other night I was consoling some broken hearted members of the Leaf Nation who had flooded into my neighbourhood. And although I'm a diehard Canadiens fan eh?
I came to the conclusion that they deserved better...
And I feel the same way about Toronto, a city that after living here for so many years, I have reluctantly come to love.
And the good news? That's exactly what's going to happen.
Olivia Chow would easily defeat Mayor Rob Ford in next year’s municipal election in all but one scenario where the centre-left vote is split three ways, a new poll by Forum Research shows. In a one-on-one race, Chow would win with 57 per cent of the vote compared to 36 per cent for Ford, the poll found.
And if Olivia, who is my MP, does run, I am going to join her campaign on day ONE. And work my little butt off to help drive those Con hogs from power.
I'm sure they'll have me doing things like pushing a broom, like the gay community always does during the Pride Week events. !@#!!
But in this case even a humble broom will be a mighty symbol eh?
And it's the least I can do for the city where I have had so many happy times, and made some great new friends.
For the Fords really are DISGUSTING. Like the Harper Cons they really have to go.
And love it or hate it, Toronto is an amazing Canadian city.
And it really does deserve better...
