CFRB's John Moore's editorial of Mayor Rob Ford's downfall by his own hands.
Rob Ford double downs! Doubles down? Whatever.
A LEFT WING CONSPIRACY made him create a conflict of interest! Truly, the gift that keeps on giving.
It's always a left wing conspiracy to enforce ethics; the right wing sure as shit isn't going to do it.
Now there's talk of some city councillors getting Doug Ford to run for mayor if Rob Ford isn't allowed to run again.
According to Mayor Rob Ford's itineraries gained from freedom of information requests, he took most afternoons off during football season.
A Toronto Star article on all the warnings, advice, and fail-safe mechanisms the Mayor Rob Ford ignored that would have prevented him from getting into the legal trouble he got himself in.
tl;dr Rob Ford is an arrogant idiot.
An arrogant idiot who's eligible to run in the byelection.
He's already started campaigning.
Oh man can you imagine if Toronto actually re-elected Ford? I kind of think I want it to happen.
If he gets re-elected after all this then he's proven himself as the mayor Toronto deserves.
And the rich comedic vein will be continued to be mined and mocked.
The only solution is de-amalgamation. Which is what everyone from 'Old Toronto' wants anyway.
What a guy.
Appeal verdict to come out this morning.
Ford wins. As far as I can tell the judgement is that Council's procedure for censuring Ford in CC 52.1 was inappropriate, meaning Ford's code-contravening behavior resulting from that decision was as null as it was. If it'd been the initial decision of the court I'd have cried hair-splitting sophistry in the name of avoiding a political shitstorm. Since the initial judge already put the shit in the wind at this point it just looks like a lame-ass honest best guess from three judges who hate Toronto.
Apparently there's still some trouble brewing in the form of a audit of Ford's 2010 campaign finances that could still get him turfed, so stay tuned.
Welcome to the new ethics-free Toronto! Coming soon: A new waterfront casino!
I'm glad Rob Ford got to keep his job because he's comedy gold for the rest of Canada!
This mayor keeps on giving! (or is that receiving...?)
Why is he still in power again?
The voters in the suburbs.
I'm not sure if I should feel more depressed about the fact they voted for him or the fact he somehow managed to stay in office.
The guy simply refuses to learn. He should just step down as mayor and become a high school football coach because it seems like that's what he enjoys doing more.
Mistakes were made!
Mayor Ford has been accused of groping a political rival.
Rob Ford denies it.
I didn't know he touches non-football shaped objects...
It's like he's trolling everyone, just to see how far he can go and get away with it. I fully expect him to have someone murdered eventually, just to see what happens.
Holy shit. I knew he was an asshole but I didn't think he was that kind of asshole.
So why haven't we kicked this clown out of office yet?
You guys did. Then re-elected him!
Techinally we reinstated him. I hope to god he won't be reelected but who knows.
I thought my mayor was bad.
A friend shared this on Facebook this morning:
Rob Ford: ‘Intoxicated’ Toronto mayor asked to leave military ball.
Rob Ford’s ‘prehistoric comments’ prompt concerns at Richard Kachkar murder trial
Rob Ford, also the finest legal mind of our generation.
Dammit, I came here to post that. I swear, he literally cannot run out of new lows
Well, he hasn't been identified as a member of NAMBLA (yet).
The Toronto mayor told reporters Tuesday that showers at the proposed hub for cycling commuters are a waste of taxpayer dollars.
Knopster, fuck you.
That is a beautiful gif, though.
