Even after nearly being booted from office for it, Rob Ford continues to send out fundraising letters to registered lobbyists (albeit no longer on official city letterhead). When councillor Gord Perks found out, he publicly urged Torontonians to make a fuss. A resident in Perks’ ward named Frank Trotz took up the call to action yesterday and filed a complaint with the integrity commissioner. Although the complaint will likely result in a mild reprimand for Ford, at most, Trotz wants much more: he says he hopes that Ford will be taken back to court and dismissed. He also maintains that he isn’t the mayor’s “enemy,” although we’re not so sure. The Parkdale-residing, Perks-befriending artist and former CBC employee is exhibiting all the traits of what the Ford camp might call a lefty pinko. [Toronto Star]
