Toronto politics

As O-Town doesn’t really have a Mayoral race to speak of…

… this political junkie has to find another one to follow and enjoy.

And Toronto, the land of the crack-smoking, loud, obnoxious, and the tacky champion of all Torontonians with a sub 75 IQ, is the place to watch. Especially now that Olivia Chow is resigning her seat in the House to run against that slobbering and poor excuse to a human being (and John Tory too… but he’s a different type of a poor excuse for a human being), this race is going to get interesting fast! And there are still 7 months to go before the vote.

In Laschinger and Kinsella, Chow has a strong team; and she’s going to need it. This is NOT going to be a walk in the park. I’ve seen various estimates indicating that the size of FurdNashun is worth about 20-25% at the ballot box. The danger here is that Chow and Tory split the anti-Furd vote and the crackhead comes up the middle.

It would be interesting to see if any of FurdNashun will flip to Tory instead… doubt it, though.

Stay tuned, this is gonna be a helluva ride!

Memo from the PMO to straws…

Dear Straws: we are grasping at you.
Sincerely, Steve

 

“These latest allegations are troubling. Our Government does not condone illegal drug use, especially by elected officials while in office, including Justin Trudeau. We’ll continue to work with all levels of government on shared priorities, such as jobs and economic growth. That includes working with mayors and city councils, including the Mayor of Toronto and Toronto City Council,” MacDonald, Mr. Harper’s top spokesman, said in the statement.”

 

Seriously? You found a way to compare the actions of the Horror of Hogtown to JT?

Guess the staffers have checked out the polling on three of the four by elections and have seen that it ain’t looking too good.

Fear, Desperation,
thou hast shown many faces
so rage against all

More of Ford’s staff are abandoning…

Rob Ford- election hater

So that dahhhling of the knuckle-draggers, the inimitable Rob Ford, thinks he should not have to face the voters in a by election should he be forced to hand in his Chain of Office.

Of course he wants to be reappointed! He knows that the good citizens of The Big Smoke would never elect this buffoon a second time.

Here’s a thought: in the event that the NHL greed-a-thon goes on and the season is cancelled (which I am hoping for at this point), that other über-buffoon in the tacky suits will be out of a job, right? So then he and the former Mayor can do the speaking circuit! And give it a catchy name like The Whining About Progressives Tour, 2013. What a pair they’d make!

The stupid!!!!

It hurts!!!!

Check it out, there’s a “Rob Ford has been overthrown by Toronto elitists” site!

Democracy Denied!

We the people of Toronto and friends in the rest of Canada who support Rob Ford for Mayor of Toronto.

Our voice was shutdown by an activists who brought Rob Ford to court on a technicality for using the wrong letterhead to raise money for underprivileged kids sports.

Those elitist Ford haters wanted to get Ford anyway they could.

Now it’s time to fight back. Let’s bring Rob Ford back into the mayor’s office with an even BIGGER vote margin.

Who writes their stuff? “A BIGGER vote margin”? WTF does that mean? Oh, I get it. They mean “BIGGER margin of victory”! But I guess I’m just being elitist...

And hey, good luck with that!

I almost fell of my bus seat when I saw this headline:

Tories still see ally in Rob Ford

Really? Seriously? Toronto area Conservatives are coming to this train wreck’s defense? Would Ford have the utter gall to run for the CPC in the next election?

Of course he would.

OTTAWA – Those whose antics threaten to besmirch the party name normally don’t get a second chance with Canada’s federal Conservatives.

Not so, it would seem, for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

“I did support him and I do support him,” said Conservative MP John Carmichael, who represents the Toronto riding of Don Valley West, after the controversial municipal leader was ordered removed from office this week for violating conflict-of-interest rules.

“I feel very badly about what’s happening.”

Many Toronto-area Conservatives are rallying around the embattled mayor, having actively backed Ford’s 2010 campaign — some putting a great deal of their own personal political capital into play in order to elect someone they saw as a valuable ally.

Ford’s campaign pledge to end the city hall “gravy train” resonated with kindred spirits on the political spectrum, his no-nonsense, blue-collar style the perfect antidote to the Toronto elites long viewed as the natural enemy of Canada’s right wing.

And how many mayors have been invited to go fishing at Stephen Harper’s summer home?

Personally, I think this is a good thing. Sure, why not?

And when it blows up in the collective face of the ReformCons, I will be falling off my seat again – laughing.

Meanwhile, over at Blogging Tories…

… the decision to remove Rob Ford from office has been blamed on Toronto lefties.

Yup. Damn lefties. At it again.

Calgary lost the game last night cuz of the lefties too!

Argos win the Grey Cup…

and Rob Ford is ordered to be removed from office!

Ontario Superior Court Justice Charles T. Hackland said in a ruling released Monday that Ford violated the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act when he spoke and participated in a council vote regarding a financial penalty he was ordered to pay. The penalty relates to donations he solicited for his football charity.

What a GREAT 24 hours!!

Well, I’m a busy man too, officer…

… just like Mayor Ford… is what I’ll say if I am ever pulled over for talking on my cell, eating, reading a paper, watching a video or having a nap while driving.

Hell, if it works for a guy like Rob Ford, who, by virtue of being the Mayor of Canada’s largest city, is supposed to set a good example for the rest of us, then maybe the officer will see my side of the story too!
