Things get weird: Rob Ford takes comfort in a midnight ride on the TTC
After his transit plan was defeated at yesterday’s special council meeting, Rob Ford hopped on the TTC and rode straight into the open arms of his supposed supporters: the good people of Scarborough. According to some late-night tweets from a Ford staffer (who else?), the mayor was riding the Eglinton SRT until 1 a.m., followed by a ride on an Eglinton bus around 2 a.m. We know talking to the people—and occasionally moving their sand—energizes Ford, so perhaps this is his photo-friendly way of licking his wounds (hey, it’s better than pounding back a bottle of Wild Turkey in his undies). Or maybe he’s trying to rally his Scarborough troops while he “forges ahead” with his defeated transit plan—for some reason, there’s already talk of a referendum. Either way, we like the good folks at Reddit’s idea for his next transit trip: a ride on the Finch bus during rush hour. Read the entire story [Toronto Sun] »

In my opinion there are alot of Politians esp. the Mayor who do need to take Transit for a week to see just how hellish an experience it is most days. Hopefully on a day when there’s a delay and nothing’s moving and we all have to take Sheuttle buses so that he can see how overcrowded this city has become.
I completely agree with Ria and I say: up the ante; make it a month.
