Doug Ford can’t legally be Rob Ford’s replacement, but he’s going to try it anyway
Doug Ford has now apparently made peace with the fact that he can’t legally take over Ward 2 councillor duties while his brother Rob Ford (the actual, elected Ward 2 rep) is recovering from cancer surgery. Except “making peace,” in the Fordiverse, still looks a lot like a temper tantrum. Doug told the Sun’s Joe Warmington that, since the law forbids him from becoming councillor pro tem, and since city policy prevents councillors from employing their own relatives, he’ll instead sign up as an unpaid volunteer in Rob’s office, allowing him to act as a sort of “shadow councillor” with no formal powers—only the ability to pester city staffers for favours. “I will return every call,” Doug said to Warmington. “Somebody has to keep an eye on the taxation and spending.”

Why doesn’t he just keep an eye on his dad’s business he’s running into the ground.
To the extent that actual staffers in Councillor Rob Ford’s pass on information to Volunteer Doug in respect of resident calls and concerns, that likely too violates City policy and privacy laws.
Doug Frod’s unauthorized assumption of Rob Ford’s City of Toronto Council seat and it’s rights should be stopped immediately by police and the courts. Call security on this clown. ENOUGH ALREADY!!
Somebody has to clear the backlog of crack piling up in Rob’s absence. Without cash flowing the illegal gun trade would grind to a halt damaging the economy.
Good point. Liability is likely an issue, too.
