    I was not even aware that he had the authority to do that (I thought that the council stripped him of his power pretty much..)

    ...Rob Ford has also refused to attend the upcoming International Pride Parade to be held in Toronto this year.

    Torontonians must be so proud of him.../sarc

    OK, a few questions: I always had this idea of Toronto as a very liberal city. Why did they elect this guy, and why is he still in office? I don't see why he's so popular, despite his repugnancy. What's his big appeal? He gives Toronto a bad image...I visited there when I was 13 and thought it was really awesome, but I'd not spend a dime there until this guy is out. He needs to be removed, like a tumor.

    Toronto is very liberal city and as someone who has been there many times I would say he reflects poorly on the city and very few people there are actually like that. It baffles me how he got elected however I don't think he'll get re-elected providing not many other people run (if a lot other people run people may split the vote between the opposition).

    Actually he got elected because his predecessor, David Miller, was a spineless bureaucrat who couldn't keep the unions in line, so costs escalated and the unions got bolder. They had a garbage collector's strike that lasted weeks and stank up the city like nobody's business.

    Rob Ford came in vowing to fight corruption and control costs (i.e. unions), and he did...for a while.

    From listening to As It Happens, he always struck me a kind of mean-spirited, Chris Christie sort, wanting to cut this and that benefit for the poor/working class. Or as a kind of candidate the wealthy would like because they'd pay less taxes...maybe he was appealing to the city's well heeled? I'm sure Toronto must be a pretty pricey place to live, and have some very tony areas. Well, in any event, he seemed mainly to appeal to a sense of greed.

    I don't really get the big deal of him not going... I mean do we even want him there?? :dry: Rob Ford has never gone to pride (says he is at his cottage during that time) and I don't really want him there, he would be like this huge buzz kill. lol

    Please note: I am pissed he took the flag down!

    I'm kinda glad, he's a crack smoker ffs. Who would want a crack smoker to advocate their side? He can't do much anyways, if I remember correctly, they stripped him of most of his power because of his addiction and outbursts. I'm surprised he's still a mayor.

    didn't he get angry when he was fined in vancouver for illegal behavior?

    I think he has established himself as doucheking.
