Rob Ford isn’t asked tough questions, but doesn’t really tell the truth anyway
The Toronto Sun recently sat down for an interview with Rob Ford, which presented a good opportunity for the paper to ask some tough questions (it didn’t) and, apparently, for the mayor to recycle his talking points from 2010 (he did). That Ford still lists killing the vehicle registration tax and a property tax freeze as major accomplishments suggests he’s either blind to the realities of funding a city or he simply refuses to acknowledge his mistakes (after all, he did say that he and his team did a “fantastic job” in 2011). Ford had a similarly friendly interview with CP24’s Stephen LeDrew last week, with LeDrew serving up softballs and Ford swinging for the fences. Of course, much of what Ford said wasn’t exactly “true”—but, hey, who needs pesky things like the truth when you can tell people what they want to hear instead? Read the entire story [Toronto Sun] »

STOP THE GRAVY TRAIN
END THE WAR ON CARS
What more do you need to know? That’s why we elected Rob Ford, he has all the answers even if they don’t fit your smug, communist, Miller-loving worldview.
@Joe Tory, I need to know a lot more, like why there’s a war on transit and children and the less fortunate. Smug doesn’t begin to describe your hate-filled universe.
Joe Tory – I want to have your babies.
If people still think there was / is any gravy
this city is in major trouble
Simpletons like Joe Tory (and Rob Ford) don’t understand the complexities and realities in running the city.
I am ashamed that Canada’a largest city is run by such a small-minded mayor. As most Torontonians would love a world class city, folks like Joe Tory and Ford hold it back.
“folks like Joe Tory and Ford hold it back.”
Can you imagine a world without us? Living wages, cheap and pervasive rapid transit, bicycles everywhere, “artists” making a decent living … sounds ok, but you don’t see the flip side.
Imagine being able to only own five luxury vehicles instead of ten or more, or having to sell a rarely-used summer home, just because company profits are suddenly getting funneled towards the schlubs who actually do the work. That income “equality” causes major problems because important Job Creators (business owners) aren’t used to being told “no.” Tantrums ensue, and rich people move to more wealth-friendly nations like Dubai. Canada has already sold it’s natural resources to foreign companies, why not ensure that our labour pool is as flexible and competitive as China’s or Mexico’s?
This is why it is important to lobby your local MP for policies that a) favour the creation of vast fortunes, and b) allow elections based almost entirely on fundraising. Without such policies, men like Rob Ford wouldn’t exist!
I really feel for those who are dependent on this ford fella. Can they honestly believe he has all the answers. He can’t even speak or write a speech. His own ideas are probably those of his brother. Poor old Toronto. He has clearly shown he discriminates and is prejudice. He abuses people at work places, on the street and in footballs fields. He maintains an unhealthy body weight which could lead to several illnesses including diabetes. Which indicates to me he is unable to take care of himself never mind a world class city. Nah…this fella should step down. He has no future in politics.
