aintitahoot: Heads-up from the WTFark video team here:

We may do a WTFark video about this submission and may pick one or two comments from this thread to use in the making of the video. If your comment is used, you will be credited (by handle) at the end of the video. If you have a problem with that and want your handle/comment ignored, then please let us know here. Otherwise, we will assume all are fair game. If you are the subby and want credit, please let us know here as well.

Here's how it works. We will keep track of whose comments we use and when you reach a certain threshold (five times, maybe) we will give you a small gift as a token of gratitude. Say, a Fark bar towel and a free month of TotalFark. If, as time goes on, and we seem to be using more and more of your comments, we will up the ante with some premium liquor for those of you who partake or something else equally appealing for those of you who don't.

The videos will live in the right sidebar here on fark.com and in their natural habitat on ora.tv/wtfark. Click if you like them. Don't if you don't.

We thank you for your support.

Ford's latest gaffe: Saying he's going to ask the federal government for money to help repair Toronto's public housing - a month after he voted against doing just that. Then claiming that under his tenure as mayor, the public housing situation is "100 times better than it was three years ago" - when in fact the repair backlog costs have risen by 430% and number of people on the waiting list has soared to 90,000.

So, in saying he's giving up drinking, he's saying he's suggesting he's sticking to using illegal drugs.  Either that or he's thinking in terms of doing his best to show he's cleaned up his act in order to get re-elected.

/Toronto residents must feel so proud!
//oh wait, Marion Barry, while mayor of D.C., had some drug issues some years back

cgraves67: Keep your camera-phones at the ready Canada, he's gonna fall off the wagon in epic style. Get your video footage for youtube before his handlers get him back under control.


Ford's handlers are no more. His chief of staff was fired, his next chief was sent to the deputy mayor, and his campaign manager is now working for a competitor. His only handler is his sociopath of a brother.

sno man: Langston: I can't wait to see the next episode of the Rob Ford Interactive Legislative Experience.

There is a Canadian Mayors conference in Ottawa tomorrow that should have some pretty high quality sound-bites.
Nenshi will be there for contrast.  Ford will be working pretty much without a net.  It should be glorious.


Road trip!

Is Rob visiting Betty?

"I don't use illegal drugs. I've experimented with them, probably a year ago, but I don't use drugs. We're in great shape," he said.

That's some leadership right there.

Walker: But just the other day he injured his groin by walking into a fire hydrant.

"Ow, my balls!"

You sure he wasn't peeing on the hydrent?

Isn't this the basic plot of a movie starring John Candy?

Rob Ford has landed in Ottawa, Let's see if he can find the meeting...

/It's at city hall.
/*update* he will give a presser ahead of the meeting at city hall, seems he found the place.

here's a pic from the meeting...

Rob Ford looks like he has a note he wants pass to the woman in the back row but can't figure out how to without being caught by the teacher...
Naheed Nenshi in the middle looks like the kid that studied all week and is ready for the test...
And Don Iverson from Edmonton looks like he's trying to find simpler words to explain to Rob how LRT's do in cold weather.

I don't suppose you happen to know if there's a live feed of the conference? I haven't been able to find one.

nope, sorry.

He's bailing anyway, too cool for school... not going to the afternoon session.  Probably going to go smoke under the bleachers with the cool kids.

/ I'm really glad he paid his own way, if that was my tax dollars paying for that effort...

The afternoon session would interrupt his own "Session" at the Bare Fax

He said he was going to lunch with a friend...  I bet they have a lunch special, Brazeau is the day manager, and they both have some history with domestic violence.

OKAY OTTAWA FARKERS, IT'S GO TIME!!!

Bummer, it would have been interesting to watch it even without him there (yeah, I'm a nerd). Can't say I'm surprised he bailed, though. Having to restrain his usual meeting behavior style was probably making him overheat. I bet he was a lovely shade of fuschia by the time he walked out.

Oh I heartily approve of this idea (from a distance). Double points if someone says "Hey Patrick, remember that time Justin Trudeau kicked your ass? That was awesome".

He's at the Clock Tower Brew Pub for lunch, Any Ottawa Farkers close enough to get a shot?

If he was only going to do one of the sessions and was even a little serious about why they all were there, the Minister for Housing is going to be there this afternoon.
The almost finished stadium for the Red Blacks is a bigger draw.
I joked up-thread about being in touch with my inner 12 year old, Ford is his inner 12 year old.
 
2014-02-26 02:05:49 PM
OH FFS...

His office says they didn't know the Minister was going to be there...  SO HE'S GOING BACK.
(it was clearly on the agenda)
An earlier report from his office said he had a plane to catch at 6, the Minister was to be there at 4, so he was going to have to cut the meeting short anyway to catch the plane.
(the agenda also had the schedule)

He can still make his flight on time. He'll probably walk in and say "we need money for housing" and then when the Minister replies "please submit a proposal" he'll storm out and hold a press conference biatching that the feds refused to commit money to help.
