That wasn't my opinion. That is the protocol that exists for removing a mayor from office.

Yeah - and one that likely took a lot of shots. Linemen get it the worst with these brain injuries. The repeated banging, even without concussions, can do a lot of damage. I wouldn't think all his behavior resulted from a swiss cheese brain just yet, but i have to wonder if some effects are showing up and amplifying behaviors at this point.

Knowing he has a long history with alcohol/drugs likely doesn't help either

Ford loyalists given raises ahead of key council meeting, sources say - The Globe and Mail

so, on monday city council plans to reduce ford's budget to that of a normal councillor. as a last minute dodge around that, ford gives 19 of his loyal staffers a raise. nothin' like defending against that gravy train!

What I mean is people should let him continue being mayor. The media is out to get him.

The elitist councillors who have their backs turned to Rob Ford, fuck them. They are no better than he is.

are you serious? for one they don't make a complete mockery of the city by:

man the list is too long

-smoking crack
-flipping off a kid and mother for complaining that he was talking on his phone and driving
- drinking and driving
-having a plethora of drunken nights out on the town
- presumably hiring hookers
-presumably funding a crack house
-costing the city millions and a comprehensive transit system/revamp by canceling an already in motion project
-funding a billion dollar subway in a part of town that already has non-traffic impeding transit so they could get votes meanwhile ignoring crucial areas of the city in transit such as eglinton, sheppard west, queen street, etc.


list goes on....

fuck ford. and the conservatives. I for one can't wait until the liberals come back.

elitist councillors? They voted 39-3 to strip him of his powers, and more than 80% of council turned their backs. either almost every councillor is elitist, or maybe rob ford has done something really bad. apply okham's razor to that one dude.

they are definitely better than he is, simply because, as individuals, they have not brought international condemnation and mockery to our city.

almost any other major city in the world, and he gets removed. he's only there because of our system, at this point. that's a technicality that keeps him in 'power'.


and 'the media' is out to get him... really? he had his own talk show on am radio, where he routinely used it as a personal partisan pkatform, and sun tv wants to give the fords their own show. the 'media' ffs...

None of them have been caught pissing in a public parking lot in broad daylight
None of them have been seen over and over drunk and/or high in public
None of them have been mocked on SNL
None of them have been arrested for domestic abuse
None of them has brought undue attention and disgrace to this city



And everything 'trane said.
