Good headline, so +1 but this is days old news.

When it comes to the "no-crack" policy, I'm guessing Mayor Ford did NOT see the memo.

Remember Rob, on your first day of prison kick someone's ass, or become someone's biatch. Then everything will be all right.

If it doesn't impair his ability to govern, I couldn't care less.

This still won't deter his hard core supporters (aka drug dealers)

Went looking for a random Ford gif and ran into this, decided to post it any ways.

I thought it was hilarious when this guy held a press conference to say, "I don't use crack cocaine," as if no one would notice his deft use of the present tense, and the press failed to call him on it anyway.

I remember when this first broke and there was a photo of him with that black guy, and I said to myself, oh yeah, that guy's a cokehead. Bloated red sweaty face and a goofy smile. Only Santa Claus and coke fiends.

ransack.: Is he a good mayor? Who the Hell even cares if he likes to inhale vaporized cocaine? It feels good. It doesn't mean you can't mayor well.


I'm more concerned about one of the people linked to the Mayor and the video, Anthony Smith, who was murdered. There's also the fact that the mayor's close friend,driver and drug dealer Sandro Lisi is up on extortion charges related to the video. Rob Ford going to meet his drug dealer with his child in the car is also problematic.

The video is just the flashy part of the scandal, there are much more serious allegations and issues for him to address.

That 'black guy' in the photo was murdered this summer. He was a known drug dealer and criminal, the kind of guy the Mayor seems to hang with.

No, he's a terrible mayor. Changes staff every week, council won't work with him and he's cost the city millions by cancelling transit plans that were approved and paid for. He pretty we'll works part time and is a liability more than an asset.

libranoelrose: not even pressing charges


As was pointed out yesterday, you can't do a drug test on a video. But don't worry, now the video is confirmed as real it won't take long before he gets nailed for something he did while covering his track(mark)s.

I hadn't heard about that, buying coke with your kids tagging along is pretty not cool. How'd this guy get elected? His opponent must have been like, uh.. someone terrible. Is there speculation that he was involved in the murder? It seems stupid to kill someone to protect yourself from being removed as mayor of Toronto.

Here's the thing: when the story about the video first broke, the local media went so nuts with so little hard evidence that all Ford had to do to defend himself was point that out and claim that it was just haters hating.

/also, he was voted in because the other candidates didn't know how to campaign worth a damn

A week ago a photo surfaced of a lowly city worker with his head down on his desk. Of course Ford thought he should be fired.

I'm fairly sympathetic to this point of view, but by all accounts he's a comically shiatty mayor.
 
2013-11-03 10:46:23 AM  
Oh and apparently his approval rating went up 5% after the cops made the announcement.

Stay classy Ford Nation.

He was elected by the suburbs. There's a huge divide in the city between the downtown and the 'burbs. And the other candidates were also underwhelming and probably just served to split the vote. There's nothing linking Ford to Smith's murder but the optics have having your photo taken with a known drug dealer outside of a known crack house and then that dealer being murdered a month or so later does not look good.

And ya, he took his kid to a drug deal. Classy.

By my account he is one of the finest examples of offline trolling I have ever seen. I have been loving every minute of it. This was the Toronto suburbs trolling the shiat out of the city like the internet was doing to American Idol with that Sanjaya(?) idiot a few years back. Hi-larious.

Followed up at 3 pm by Mark Towhey, Ford's former chief of staff, who's filling in this month for the usual guy. Should be exciting.

The Toronto suburbs are filled with passive/aggressive cowards who see Ford as their guy to stick it to the libby queer commies who live downtown. These people just want to watch the world burn because their boss is an asshole and the rent is too damn high.

Isn't this a repeat from the Politics tab? They even have a follow up to this about how his approval rating is actually  up.

/listening to the radio about how those in Etobicoke, the annexed suburban municipality, continue to defend the guy, I'm thinking the water there is laced with crack or something

In all fairness, NFL teams seem to be pretty good things for cities to have. They spend a lot of money on them and it's a very depressing and embarassing ordeal for a city to lose it's NFL franchise. Ask someone who lived in Baltimore in 1984. Hell, when the Colts play at Baltimore to this day they are introduced as the "NFL franchise from Indianapolis" and called Indy on the scoreboards because they refuse to accept the Colts unexpectedly abandoning them, much like a bitter ex-spouse. An NFL team pumps a lot of money into the local economy. Detroit has no streetlights or police but the Lions play on.
 
2013-11-03 11:10:20 AM  
Just like the people in Arizona who voted in Sherriff Arpaio to office over and over, the voters in Toronto picked Ford as mayor. Even before he was revealed as a crackhead he didn't seem like the best choice for a politician.

Probably because they still remembered Thursday's greenlit thread. You have to space the repeats out a bit or people will start to complain.
