I just saw Doug Ford making some ridiculous accusations against David Miller. He accused him of corruption and looking for personal gain while bankrupting the city in the name of the elites. You know what - I might consider the idea of the media and elites being out to get him for a second if this kind of unbelievable bullshit wasn't the position held for the last ten years non-stop. It's a pure outrageous lie, and that goes along with the lies about his own record and personal life. But everyone is out to get the dude that does nothing but lie and spout bullshit that only has the intention of turning people against each other. It's fucking disgusting.

David Miller appointed a conservative budget chief. He held meetings across the city to help formulate budgeting priorities for this city. And he balanced the budget, achieving a surplus in fact. Did he raise taxes? Considering the financial mismanagement he inherited from Lastman, yeah - that was unavoidable. He did not suggest that big projects would somehow pay for themselves or that there was some way we could all enjoy a free ride. Dougie wanted to give his developer friends a shopping mall and ferris wheel on the waterfront, ignoring years of planning and excellent progress in making the waterfront a functional part of the city for everyone. How fucking corrupt is that? When asked how much this project would cost he said he had no idea.

These two have bullied their way through with ludicrous ideas, misinformation, and willful ignorance, but everyone is out to get them. Money has in fact been wasted. The city has become stagnant and extremely short-sighted, not because of the council's inability to get things done, but rather because of Ford's agenda and his shutting down of processes vital for moving forward and appropriate planning. The Gardiner is an expensive mess. Ford scrapped the environmental assessment process for it's removal and/or alteration that was already underway and had cost money. Now he's been forced by the collapsing nature of the structure, to start the assessment up again from scratch. A huge amount of time and money was wasted, and the Gardiner continues to suck cash out of the budget, year after year. Great work Rob! But hey - everything can be solved by ranting about elites, the media, and repeating stupidly simplistic mantras regarding the war on the car, the need for subways instead of the LRT that he blindly and stupidly calls streetcars, and hands in cookie jars (when he was looking to take city land for his own use, has no problem using police services, road repair services, and ttc services to provide him with personal service). Fucking disatser from start to finish. He made his own bed and Doug did a great job letting his dogs piss on it.

Rob Ford's big achievement - having us pay more for a lot less. And he watches every dime. Which of course is a meaningless bit of bullshit. Excemplary.

Rob Ford: 'Yes, One Day I Do Want To Run For Prime Minister'

Quote:
If Rob Ford's political career is over, someone forgot to tell him.

In fact, the controversial Toronto mayor, who has admitted to smoking crack cocaine in the past and getting behind the wheel after drinking, has his sights set on 24 Sussex Drive.

"Yes, one day I do want to run for prime minister," Ford told Fox News Channel's John Roberts in an interview which aired in part Sunday.

In one short clip, Ford said he has admitted to using illegal drugs in the last year and drinking too much, but maintains he isn't an addict or alcoholic.

"I'm dealing with it, I'm training every day. I'm in the gym two hours every day, I'm seeking professional help," he said.

-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.
I mean, honestly he has people watching his every move. Like the police were tailing him 24-7 for the longest time and recorded all his mistakes.

I can honestly say if I were tailed 24-7 I would be exposed for doing things that aren't 100 percent legal.

I just don't like this holier than thou attitude

You are not the mayor and haven't given them reason to do surveillance on you.

you are not, as far as i know, the mayor of the biggest city in canada. nor are you a significant public figure, paid by taxpayer money, and in a role that both commands respect from the citizenry and stands as a role model for children and youth. you are not held to the same standard. neither am i. surely, surely, you can see the difference here. it's not holier than thou, it's the accountability, responsibility and integrity of public office.

oh, and the police tailing him is because he is part of a criminal investigation. do you think criminal investigations are holier than thou?

Holier than thou is the latest Ford mantra. What's next Thug? Sieg heil?

As trane mentioned, Ford was trailed as part of an investigation, of which he appears to be a central figure. He has not been arrested or charged as of yet, and refuses to cooperate with the police. Meanwhile a good number of people, many quite aciliary to the investigation, have faced charges.

All the guy had to do was take a leave of absence and seek help. And cooperate with the police. He has chosen to fling accusations everywhere he can while playing the part of the victim. It's absurd and corrosive.

He says he stands on the side of the poor. Doug told cnn that Rob is unfairly labeled a conservative and that he his "a huge social-liberal".

Wow. The stupidity just amps up.

NOW reports that he instructed his bodyguard to shoot video of certain people in the public gallery.

OK so because he is the mayor he is held to a higher set of expectations. I get that.

What I don't get is how the council just kicked him out of office? After all, isn't he still the mayor? What did he do that legally kicks him out of office? Like you said, he was part of a criminal investigation- but has he been charged?

He should be allowed to finish out his term, he was fairly elected by the citizens of Toronto.

This was unfair and unprecedented. What the fuck is next?
