Ford brothers send flowers to all the women on Toronto city council

Hey, it’s Valentine’s Day: in a move that shows that rivals can still be kind even in a nasty political atmosphere, mayor Rob Ford and his brother councillor Doug Ford delivered roses to each of city council’s 14 female councillors, including Maria Augimeri (pictured). Shocking no one, the Brothers Ford had nothing for the dudes on council, even after Glenn De Baeremaeker shared such a special moment with the new mayor during his inauguration ceremonies (one wonders what they’d have done if Kyle Rae was still around).

Remember how, at first, Ford’s executive committee was a total sausage fest? (Councillors Jaye Robinson and Michelle Berardinetti were added after the initial selections by the mayor.) And how half the women on council are either on the fence or outright opposed to most of what Ford is doing around the city? Right. Enjoy this moment of comity while it lasts, everyone—it will likely be followed by the boys fighting with the women over the things the former hate and the latter love.
