Rob Ford tries 31 times to derail John Tory’s budget
City council approved mayor John Tory’s first budget on Wednesday evening, but not before reckoning with a classic Rob Ford sideshow. The former mayor and current Ward 2 councillor moved 31 motions on the budget—far more than any other councillor. Each one was an attempt to dismantle some small part of Tory’s spending plan, by doing things like reducing the amount of money the city spends on planting trees, eliminating security guards at libraries and cutting the mayor’s office budget. Like most of what Ford does politically, these proposals were mainly symbolic. He tabled them to create a fuss, probably with no expectation that any of them would become law. For the most part, they didn’t. City council voted 29 of them down. (Two minor ones—on the city’s grants program and its purchasing management—passed.)

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Rob Ford should get this on a bumber sticker
who is Rob Ford again? Is that the portly fella that sells used clothing on ebay in his spare time?
Does ‘team Ford’ still support his activities? Aren’t they getting tired of his time wasting and wasting of resources? Cant we send this guy out to pasture yet?
I thinkn he did it full-time because he only goes to his real job about once a month when the press are there.
What a fantastic moron. Devoted to derailing decency and democracy until the end. Too bad he doesn’t realize that it’s already over.
I hope Ford dies screaming from his cancer. The Fords area cancer on society.
Robbie, Robbie. This city is not a toy. This city is not your toy. Grow up. Go home, please. We don’t want to play with you.
You, are a POS.
I don’t hope he dies screaming. But I hope something happens to make him go away forever, monstrous disruptive piece of nonsense that he is.
WHY oh WHY do we even talk about Rob Ford?!! WHY?!!!
Dear Rob- it’s obvious that your motto is- ‘the only publicity id good publicity’.
