Kouvalis would offer help to Fords in byelection
Councillor Doug Ford is not denying rumours that he would run for mayor in a byelection if his brother couldn't. He's not confirming the rumours either, saying his priority right now is to keep his brother on the mayor's seat.
But no matter which Ford would run if there is a byelection, they would once again have access to Rob Ford's weapon from the last campaign.
Ford's win two years ago was called by Maclean's magazine the "most improbable mayoral victory" in recent Canadian history. The man credited with making that happen is former campaign manager Nick Kouvalis.
Kouvalis joined the Jerry Agar Show this morning, saying he would be back if one of the Fords ran in a byelection.
"If they ask me to serve, I will serve," Kouvalis says. "But even if they didn't ask me to serve, I'm going to serve.
"This cause it too important."
Kouvalis says he's not surprised by the judge's decision to remove Ford from office because he says the judge had no choice. But he says, "This is not right."
