QUOTED: Doug Ford gets smug that he and Adam Vaughan actually agree on something
I’m glad that Councillor Vaughan is taking a page out of my playbook that I’ve been preaching for the last two years…maybe he got hit over the head over the weekend.
—Private-sector investment buff Doug Ford, on why Adam Vaughan, one of the Ford camp’s most vociferous adversaries, has raised the idea of selling or leasing the Gardiner Expressway and using tolls to pay for much-needed repairs. Ford went on to joke that “maybe a coconut fell on his head and he realized, ‘Hey, the only way I can get things going…’ ” before a quick-thinking assistant cut off questioning. Vaughan, for his part, made a fruitless effort to distance his version of public-private partnerships from that of the Ford administration, saying he plans to help fund a transit system, while the Fords were focused only on a single subway line.
