I don't like Ford at all but the one thing I may agree with him on is Subway(s) over LRT.

They're always going to be expensive whether it's now, 10 years from now or even 30 years from now so that doesn't mean it shouldn't be done. A buddy of mine actually looked into it and it's ridicuolously "cheaper" to expand a subway line in Toronto than it is in say, NYC and a few other metropolitan areas/cities. Also, LRT if done like in a"monorail" style fashion is ok but if it's on land where will it be? The GTA already has probably the worst "expressway",etc/lack there of of any major city/area in N.America. More traffic + congestion is not welcome.

Yes! De-rail the gravy train again!

A lot of the hate for him just comes from people on the public dime that are no longer comfortably able to expense parties and trips to the strip club. ha-haaaaa!

Trouble just follows this guy......

TORONTO - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford punched back Tuesday at a Toronto
Star story alleging he has a drinking problem and was booted out of a gala last month over fears he was intoxicated.

He was supported by six members of the 2013 Garrison Ball organizing committee, including two co-chairs, who issued a signed letter confirming they did not ask the mayor to leave the event "for any reason" on Feb. 23.

Ford, meanwhile, came out swinging at the Star for asking about the allegations at City Hall Tuesday after he presented Canadian boxing legend George Chuvalo with a key to the city of Toronto.

"Number one, it is an outright lie. It is the Toronto Star going after me again and again and again - they're relentless, that's fine. I'll go head to head with the Toronto Star anytime," Ford insisted. "Let's just wait until the election and we'll see what happens."

A visibly agitated Ford accused those at the paper of being "pathological liars" making "lies after lies and lies."

"Why don't you take me to court? Let the courts decide," Ford said.

The Star reported Tuesday that Ford was asked to leave last month's Garrison Ball "because organizers were concerned he was impaired."

Ford attended the event with his two children and did not drive himself away from the gala that night, QMI Agency learned.

"He had a driver," a source said.

In an interview Tuesday on CP24, Star Editor-in-Chief Michael Cooke encouraged Ford to take the newspaper to court if "he feels that our story is wrong and there is a slur on him.

"I expect his lawyers' bills will be paid by the taxpayers ... We could defend this story. The story is correct. We stand by the story; it is airtight," Cooke said.

Ainslie - a member of Ford's executive committee - was the only politician who talked to the Star on the record about the Garrison Ball. He said he urged Ford's chief of staff to "have the mayor leave the event."

Defence Minister Peter MacKay released a statement Tuesday confirming he chatted with Ford "briefly" at the event.

"He looked fine to me," MacKay stated.

This latest allegation comes to light just a few weeks after former political rival Sarah Thomson accused Ford of being "intoxicated" at a Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee fundraiser. Thomson claimed Ford "grabbed my ass" and made an inappropriate remark on March 7.

Well, this should be interesting.


If true, words can't begin to describe how stupid this guy is.

I would think that the police have to investigate this, especially if Thestar chooses to publicize video. Crack possession is obviously illegal in Canada.

From Ford's camp, they can continue to deny. But video evidence is hard to argue against. If it isn't Ford though, Thestar can be hit with a huge slander lawsuit.

The first reports from this scandal came from Gawker and the guy who has the video apparently wants over six figures!!!!! The Star just seems to be the first to jump on this (what a surprise.)

I was skeptical about it being crack because I thought crack was really addictive (like meth), but crack seems to have an addiction rate of about 10%, although I've been having a hard time finding a site with official looking data.

"One try and you're hooked" might just be some Nancy Reagan propaganda that I always believed to be true.

You'd think this would have at least helped him to meet his weight loss goals.
