Ford Verdict To Be Heard Friday
The wait is almost over.
We'll find out on Friday morning if Rob Ford gets to keep his seat as Mayor of Toronto.
It was on January 7th, that a three judge panel listened to both sides in the one and only appeal hearing.
Ford was appealing a ruling in November that found him in conflict of interest, and ordered him removed from office.
He later won a stay on that ruling pending the outcome of his appeal.
At issue is a vote in council, that Ford participated in, which asked council whether or not he should be forced to pay back money he raised for his football foundation.
He’s long argued that he did nothing wrong and was only trying to help the kids.
If he loses this appeal, Ford would be removed from office, and either Torontonians would go to the polls in a byelection, or City Council would appoint a new mayor.
