Ford Finally Gets it Right
For those of you convinced I am part of the cabal trying to destroy Rob Ford, wait for it: A smart political move by the Mayor.
He's made it clear that he will not be asking the taxpayers to pick up his legal costs for the conflict-of-interest case, for which he was exonerated.
That legal tab is $116-thousand and the city has insurance to cover these types of cases but Ford told the Sun "why would I have the taxpayers pay for it even though there is insurance?" He wants the man who filed the complaint Paul Magder, and his lawyer Clay Ruby to pick up the tab, because they lost. In Rob Ford's words "I'm sorry...they lost, they pay. The taxpayer's shouldn't have to pay."
It's phrases such as those that explain why the Mayor remains in the good books of many Toronto voters.
