This guy has me torn. On one hand, he's an embarrassment to the whole country, on the other hand, he's provided endless entertainment with his drunken shenanigans. Like him or not, it looks the Toronto, the center of the universe is going to re-elect him.
 
2014-02-01 12:36:41 PM  
I love the guy in the video, "Cop car... Big guy, in a suit... That's gotta be Rob Ford" ... Awesome!
 
2014-02-01 01:06:20 PM  
I'm glad he didn't get the public intoxication ticket.  Rob Ford should be granted immunity from public intoxication charges as they would prevent his basic right to be in public.  And ours to be entertained by his antics.

So sad.  So very sad.  But possibly true.  The suburbanites love him.
 
2014-02-01 02:19:36 PM  
But does he really feel the way he does?

Well, with him in a position of power you do not have to worry about the political system outsmarting the people.  Rather than feeling endangered, perhaps he actually empowers the common man!

Rick Mercer pointed out during the Mulroney Airbus scandal thing back when that the thought that Mulroney might be going to jail was well worth the dollar or so per Canadian it cost in the judgment. Kind of the same thing, really.

Damn, I had jaywalking in Regina. Do I get partial credit?
 
2014-02-01 02:26:43 PM  
If Toronto decides they don't want him anymore, Atlanta might take him as mayor.

Big guy. Probably wouldn't get from A to B if he didn't take shortcuts.

I see someone else thought they were pretty juicy odds, too.
 
2014-02-01 02:31:18 PM  
That stretch of road is a really really stupid place to try to jaywalk.

Go home to TO, Rob, you're (quite likely) drunk.

My runner-up bet involved ten gallons of maple syrup and an underage hooker.

Turn this guy up to 11.  Someone should tell him to try bath salts.

So much for 'naked in Guelph'. [tears ticket stub]
 
2014-02-01 02:39:31 PM  
Who bet on this?

In the words of former Toronto Mayor, Mel "Big Boy" Lastman, "Nooooobody!"


That's a Canadian in-joke. They all are, to tell the truth, except the exports, eh?


Why did Rob Ford go to Vancouver, the drug capital of Canada, and get arrested for jaywalking?

Because his is trunk is full of junk.


 
2014-02-01 02:42:10 PM  
I had "waving his exposed member at an attractive female reporter"

/and I respectfully submit that it still might happen
 
2014-02-01 02:44:26 PM  
I can honestly say I've never heard of anyone getting a ticket for jaywalking. Must be an american thing. If jaywalkers were ticketed around here the citys book would be in the black in no time.
 
2014-02-01 02:44:40 PM  

Theory Of Null: This is just the calm before the storm.


New book coming out from Robyn Doolittle (Toronto Star) in which Renata Ford tells an acquaintance (secretly recording) that Rob had told her "I'm not giving up the blow" when he was elected.

Rob Ford isn't nearly clever enough to steal Leno's act.

'Jaywalking in Vancouver' would make a pretty good indie rock band name.

hitmanric: I can honestly say I've never heard of anyone getting a ticket for jaywalking. Must be an american thing. If jaywalkers were ticketed around here the citys book would be in the black in no time.


Eh? This happened in Coquitlam, not the US. I don't know of a lot of people getting jaywalking tickets at random times in random locations, since most people are smart enough not to do it in sight of a stationary police car and the moving ones will rarely come back for you, but every Canadian city I've ever lived in has handed them out like candy outside bars at/near closing time, especially along major routes like North Road.

I'd like to jaywalk in Regina, or Mary Margaret, or Emma, or Red...

2014-02-01 03:11:28 PM  
Yea, don't jaywalk near a skytrain station(I assume the one in the link) or its easy money for those poor, destitute policemen, who are always looking for a handout from the walking underprivileged(lazy).

It's funny, I've been following this clown's antic's entirely too closely, and was thinking after the lawsuit and budget shenanigans this week, and with him going to Van for a funeral, I might get a weekend off before Dolittle's book comes out next week...  (She's on Strombo Monday, and has the book release in town that night as well, and with Jon Stewart on Thurs. and look for other appearances too)
 
2014-02-01 04:32:55 PM  
Sh*t! I had "getting his pole smoked in some seedy East Hastings dive by a crackwhore"

Boojum2k: If Toronto decides they don't want him anymore, Atlanta might take him as mayor.


Atlanta's metropolitan area has stolen enough from the North, going for Canada is a bit much.  Replacing your current mayor with Toronto's wouldn't fix that problem.

The only thing that the Atlanta metro area deserves is a second William T. Sherman inspired leveling of the area with 21st Century weaponry, followed by an expeditious reconstruction of the area.  After that, put it in permanent control of a state north of the Mason-Dixon.

In short, fix what Sherman, Grant, and the Reconstruction missed in that state.


Radak: I'm glad he didn't get the public intoxication ticket.  Rob Ford should be granted immunity from public intoxication charges as they would prevent his basic right to be in public.  And ours to be entertained by his antics.


Give him US citizenship in exchange for deporting Bieber.  Then let him loose in Vegas with the agreement to keep things quiet.

Can someone write an add-on for Firefox that screens out anything - Rob Ford or Justin Beiber, so no matter what site I go to, I never have to see that name again.
 
2014-02-01 05:01:22 PM  
It's exactly this sort of stupid shiat that's going to get him re-elected.

A thousand people jaywalk every day and no cop cares enough to even look at them. These cops saw their chance to ticket a celebrity and be in the news. The media piled on, including wrong reports that he'd been cited for public intoxication.

Mark my words, people are going to start feeling sorry for him.

Jaywalking in Vancouver

No, but I had the more accurate "Jaywalking in Hongkouver".

Exactly.
This was the "top headline" story on the CBC website.  The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.  You know, the one we all have to pay for with our taxes?  That is supposed to be a fair and balanced reporting of the news?
For farks sake, it looks like the CBC is trying to compete with TMZ.

This won't remove them per say, but you can modify this grease monkey script:
https://userscripts.org/scripts/show/11035 

Its designed to replace censored words with good ole fashioned cusses, but you can easily edit it to replace, say, Rob Ford with "Pickles McDumperbrain" and Justin Beiber with "Hulk Hogan's Jock Strap" or whatever you prefer.

I installed it years ago, and still get a childhood chuckle while reading CNN and seeing "the Douchbag Administration" or "President George W Douchbag."

Don't know about Ford, but there's one called "shaved bieber" that blocks out all references to and images of JB. There's one for Miley Cyrus too. Sadly the JB blocker breaks PHPMyAdmin, which matters if you're a developer.
