Rob Ford, who lied about everything all the time, accuses John Tory of lying
Before being elected mayor, Rob Ford enjoyed a weird sort of moral high ground. His outsider status on city council meant he had nothing to lose by antagonizing then-mayor David Miller, so that’s what he did. Ford’s own time as mayor seems like it should have destroyed his credibility as a political critic, and yet here’s the National Post declaring him city hall’s new unofficial “leader of the opposition.” What did councillor Ford do to earn himself this distinction? According to the Post, he wowed reporters by criticizing John Tory for raising TTC fares and property taxes. “I was honest with taxpayers. John’s not,” Ford said, dishonestly.
