RAWR...
 
2013-11-15 05:46:27 PM  
Next the council will vote to relegate him to living in a van down by the river.

They don't respect his authoritah.

In an unusual act of generosity Ford asked that his suit be re-sewn to clothe the members of four poor immigrant families.
 
2013-11-15 05:50:57 PM  
So he has 11 months left.  I expect he'll announce a reality TV show sometime around month 6 or 7.
 
2013-11-15 05:51:01 PM  
Apparently now Rob Ford is getting his own TV show on Sun News.

For those of you blissfully unaware, Sun News is like what Fox News would be if it were a public-access cable show.

The motions passed 41-2 and 39-3, respectively

"We sent a clear message. We're unified." said Coun. John Filion, the sponsor of Monday's motion.


Has he been smoking crack too? I think he meant "most of us want this".
 
2013-11-15 05:53:12 PM  
ooo... I'd missed this one:  Newly released court documents on Wednesday revealed that former staff members of Ford told police that the mayor smoked marijuana in front of them, used Oxycontin, drove after drinking, and had city staff regularly deliver alcohol to him.

So he's an alcoholic crack head.... with an Oxy habit. bonus!

Rob Ford regarding crack: "I want you, I need you,but there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you . So don't be sad, 'cause two out of three ain't bad."

The two in 41-2 would be the mayor and his brother, right? I don't know who the third person is in the other vote.

One of the nay votes is his brother. That looks pretty well unified as you are going to get....

During debate about the motion to strip emergency powers, Coun. Doug Ford said voters, not council, should make the decision about whether or not his brother stays on as mayor.

Hate to say it, but I kind of agree with him. I don't pretend to know how Canadian politics works, but I don't like the idea of a City Council overriding the voters. If there is no legal way to remove him from office, then they need to come up with a better candidate to run against him.  Changing the rules, after-the-fact, because you don't like the person that got elected isn't cool in my book. It sucks that Toronto is stuck with this guy for the next 11 months, but is there no recall procedure in Zamboni-land?  And how does this even work?...the powers the council stripped him of...are they restored once he's out of office? What if he gets re-elected? Then what?

Ten years from now we are going to look back on this story with bemusement. "Hey remember that obese druggie mayor in Canada? What was his name...good times"

There's no recall procedures up there, at least in Toronto.

I wholeheartedly agree with the majority of Council on this. You have to do something to avoid having a shiatstain drag down the city for the next 11 months.

He's still the mayor, albeit with reduced power. Such is life.

Sin_City_Superhero: but is there no recall procedure in Zamboni-land?


Not in this case. The city council is asking the province to step in and change the laws to allow him to be ousted but the ruling Liberals have a minority and have to ask the other parties but they don't even seem to happy they even have to do that.

BTW those other councillors got voted in too and really this is the only way they can prevent him from being at the helm drunk/high in the event of an emergency. None of this would have happened if he had just taken some time off to go get some "help". Just a token leave to say he did it. His own allies have turned against him because of his pigheadedness. I really have no idea what the guy is thinking. His current approach helps him in no way at all. I can only imagine how Harpo is feeling about all this right now.

I doubt he'll get reelected, and I have a feeling that even if he was, the council would take his authority again.  Let's put it this way... There's a massive storm, power is out, roads are closed, people in trouble, ect..., do you really want a drunken crack head in charge of the city?

Has he done anything to the city thus far to prove that he is incapable of executing his elected duties? Not the "oh I'm smoking crack" video, but his actual job performance. I believe that's what he's getting at here.

Getting so drunk that you can smoke crack without "smoking crack" and get stripped in City Hall is no way to go through life, Son.

You know I do feel better making Rob Ford jokes. I had, not haz a sad.

Cut it pretty close though.

He did hide in his SUV during the Toronto flood this summer, so I guess he had that going for him.

They should have done the it the other way, ban him from public appearance and run the city from behind a desk.

I don't know about Toronto but most people, especial Vancouverites are farking loving this.  He is the gift that keeps on giving.  It's hillarious  Quite frankly whether he is conservative or liberal this is a shiat show that most Canadians enjoy.  We like to watch our politicians be taken to task if they are asshats regardless of which party they represent.  Also, there is very little drama in our politics, not like the US so it's a novelty.

The council is not overriding the voters, they're not kicking him out of office against the electorate's will.  They are exercising their right within their powers to limit the Mayor's authority, something that they can choose to do if they think he may do harm to the city or the office.  Nothing shady or illegal on their part, that's all on Ford's side.
 
2013-11-15 07:09:06 PM  
The most facepalm-worthy part of the council meeting was when Ford admitted that if anyone else was mayor and acted the way he does, he'd support stripping their power *if* doing so wouldn't cost the city any money. He then went on to say that in this case it *will* cost the city money because they'll have to pay to defend against the lawsuit he plans to file against them.

uh... despite the propaganda he really wasn't good at running a city either. Just another rich boy who bought/bullied/lied his way into power. And even if he just hid it won't stop the press from going nuts. It would probably make things worse.

You are overestimating his capacity for long-term planning. Being Mayor is enough for his brain to process until he is legally barred from doing it.

Hey, maybe Nolan talked Ford into starting at RW for the Sabres. He's got to do better than Stafford, even coked up. Maybe they have a chance.
 
2013-11-15 07:31:12 PM  
I really don't like the precedent this sets. Council deciding that they don't like the mayor and changing the rules is not a good thing. In an isolated circumstance it is a reasonable action, but it does set a bad precedent for the future.

Not quite as bad as the people calling for the provincial government to kick him out of office. That is just a terrible idea, and luckily the provincial government is in a precarious enough position that they probably won't even consider it seriously.
