I tried my hardest. Now that’s proof in the pudding about who actually makes decisions: it’s Rob, no mistake about it.
—Councillor Doug Ford, on his younger brother Rob’s staunch refusal to hire a driver (despite the fact that Doug, the Toronto Police and many others had urged the mayor to do so, in light of his checkered driving record). We have to give Doug points for being nimble; after failing to convince Rob to employ a chauffeur, he turned around and used that failure to rebut past criticism of his active involvement in the mayor’s business at city hall. That’s a clever bit of spin.
