I consider myself a good politician so if we had term limits, I would not be in politics anymore—at least down at this level. I’d have to go into provincial or federal.

We bet the scenario Ford describes is as alarming to the mayor’s opponents as it is to his supporters, only for very different reasons. [Toronto Sun]
