Despite a series of recent political defeats, Rob Ford mans up and shows a pile of sand who’s boss
When Rob Ford isn’t tending to important city business like growing a moustache or making official proclamations (today is Bob Marley Day!), apparently he’s dealing with more important issues—like getting rid of a giant pile of sand from some guy’s backyard. The Toronto Star reports that the mayor recently ordered the offending heap to be removed from Garnett Pryce’s property following a dispute between Pryce and a neighbour. Then he actually showed up to supervise the removal of said offending heap. Of course, Ford is known across the land for this sort of grassroots constituency work—still, we think Pryce summed the whole episode up best. “I think that’s unbecoming of a mayor,” he told the Star. “I don’t think he should become involved in such a petty issue.” Read the entire story [Toronto Star] »

I cannot believe his communications department let him do such a thing… is he trying to commit political suicide?
@J Fingers crossed! He’s doing such a good job of balancing on the ledge.
@J – naw, he doesn’t need a ‘communications department’ to commit political suicide, he’s great at doing it all by himself.
also, if Ford even has a ‘communications department’, he really, REALLY should fire them all because they’re doing a terrible job. He cannot ‘communicate’ for shite.
This is truly a great day for conservatives everywhere.
Look, Ford is just trying to get something, anything, done. If he can get rid of that pile of sand, maybe he can loot the port lands or crush the unions or gut city services. Just need one win to start the ball rolling. If only council doesn’t get wind of this sand business…
