Doug Ford wants to fill his brother’s council seat, whether he’s allowed to or not
Rob Ford’s cancer surgery in May will keep him in the hospital for a week or two, and “out of commission” for four months—and now Doug Ford, as if to prove that nature abhors a power vacuum, is already volunteering to take over his brother’s Ward 2 duties. Doug, who served as councillor during Rob’s mayoral term, floated the idea of a return to politics on Friday. While Rob is recovering, he told the CBC, “I’ll sit in the stands and I’ll flash a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ vote on every single vote that comes up, even though it won’t be counted…They’ll need scalpers outside city hall because it will be a full house if I get down there.” That kind of unofficial council participation might be allowed, but anything more would likely be forbidden by law. Rob would have to resign his seat before Doug could be either elected or appointed to fill the vacancy. (And if there’s one thing we know about Rob Ford, it’s that he never resigns.)

Perhaps he should try do actually play by the rules like everyone else; why should Doug get treated any differently than we would?
Every day this man wakes up expecting the world to eat his shit.
Don’t you have a company to run, Doug? Seriously Dude – get back to work!
Click bait. Everyone wants to read something about the Ford’s.
If Doug puts DECO into a blind trust then we can talk.
running the company isn’t public enough for him. Doug needs to pretend he’s a hero to “the taxpayers”.
even then … no.
Totally agree – like his brother, he’s absolutely addicted to the attention. For a guy who repeatedly claimed he was “done” with Council (until he ran for Mayor of course), he’s awfully eager to try to get back there. But then again, he also seems to enjoy riding his brother’s coattails too.
DECO’s already in a “blind trust” with these idiots in charge…..
