Kyle Rae holds city-funded farewell bash? The Sun is there

Kyle Rae holds city-funded farewell bash? The Sun is there

Downtown city councillor Kyle Rae is bidding adieu to municipal politics after almost 20 years in the clamshell, and decided to hold a farewell party to mark the occasion. The fact that this party—held at the Rosewater Supper Club—is costing the city $12,000 irked the Toronto Sun, which has now spent most of this week following the story. Today’s offering ups the ante: the Sun quotes Rob Ford as saying Rae should repay the city and then resign. (Apparently, the fact that Rae is already leaving council isn’t enough.) Rae is quoted by the Sun responding thusly: “Who cares what Rob Ford thinks?”

This is a variation on Rae’s earlier response, which could be summed up as “who cares what the Sun thinks?” (Rae was notably testy with the paper’s first inquiries about his bash.) Ford was not further quoted making any sexual innuendoes in response, which is probably for the best.
