Michael Ford won’t be doing interviews, just like his uncle Rob

Michael Ford, the 20-year-old nephew of Rob and Doug Ford (he’s their sister Kathy’s son) is officially running for city council in Ward 2, a seat occupied by one or another of his uncles for the past 14 years. The expectation, for most serious council contenders, is that they’ll speak to the media to promote and defend their candidacies, but apparently that won’t be the case for this special little guy. Speaking to reporters earlier today, Doug, who isn’t running for reelection in Ward 2, said that he’ll be discouraging Michael from speaking to the media during the campaign, because journalists are too biased. Presumably, the idea is that Mikey’s last name will be enough to bolster him at the polls.
