Doug Ford has yet to prove that he has actually donated four years’ worth of salary to charity
During last week’s semi-disastrous Metro Morning interview, Doug Ford mentioned, offhandedly, the promise he made when he was elected councillor for Ward 2 in 2010: that he would donate his $105,000 annual salary to charity. (Ford is a rich conservative, so this makes for good optics.) Over at Spacing, though, John Lorinc points out that Ford has never, in four years, provided any evidence of these six-figure donations he has supposedly been making. Even more remarkable is the fact that Lorinc’s column is the first time (to our knowledge) that any well-known journalist has even raised the question. It may be time for the mayoral candidate to release some tax receipts.
