  1. Facts please folks:

    Doug had no civic experience before he took over Rob's seat. While a councilor it has been widely reported that he did little to no counsel work for his riding other than misrepresent facts to the media about his big bother.

    Remember - it was Doug who called the media "Rotten Maggots." He called a lady reporter "a bitch" while campaigning. He is mostly reviled by twice as many people than those who might tolerate him.


    Doug is more Tea Party than Rob is.

    As such, he would be an ideal candidate for the Provincial Tories, so that the Pirate Party could secure more seats than "Doug in Charge." Aside - he is already bullying the other PC candidates yet it has been asked why I call him Thug? Really? Peace.
  2. @dama Well if those 331k supporters all lived in one riding he'd do well.

    But since that is split between all ridings in TO, he'd get elected in an Etobicoke or Scarborough riding (though a pet cat put on the ballot named Ford, would be elected out there).

    You do not need to be a political strategist to know Thug would tarnish the PC brand much more than Hudak ever did across the province and especially the within the GTA. Here is how to determine how reviled Doug actually is : Tory + Chow votes = would never vote for Doug voters = revised by more than endorsed by others.


    Karl - have him run in your riding. You seem to want him.
  3. If he was ever appointed to the Provincial Tory Leadership, I predict all those who voted for Mike Harris will stand up and vote for Thug Ford's Conservative Party. Hey, there are 315k folks who voted for Thug live who in the GTA!

    But, since we all have a vivid memory of the damage done by that kind of government - I suspect (if Thug were Leader) the Provincial Tories would drop even further off the political relevance scale with a total of ... 315k votes.. Yeah, go for it. Prove how irrelevant and out of touch the Provincial Conservative Party really is.
  4. How Doug was able to garner so many votes with his terribly negative campaign is unsettling. I would have thought TO had enough of his flip flops to bury him. Apparently Ford Nation, now Ford Notion still had some gas.

    At least they have had to change the battle cry of "Ford More Years" to "Four More Beers."

    Karl, are we to look forward to you comparing Tory to Ford?

    Well, at least we now have a mayor who is crack free (so far).
  5. When Rob was mayor, I was one of the first people on this board to call out John Tory to run, knowing a rightest candidate that was not tied to crack would be a good option for the ballot.

    I understood Olivia was an outstanding back room dealer who could put people together that would not even sit at the same table - and was encouraged when she entered the ring.

    Now, I feel she is unelectable (by her own lack of personality and vigor) that any vote for her is a vote for Doug Ford.

    So I will be casting my vote for the person I originally called out on this board to run this city. K, you can blame me if/when it goes bad.
  6. A bus? He'd need all his subways that he ever dreamed about being full of Ford Nation voters across the city to the power of 4,000 to do that! But since those in Ford Nation do not take public transit... I always wondered what the attraction is?
  7. I don't get it:

    Doug Ford had and has done nothing civic in his entire life. He got onto council on Rob's coat tails, and did ZERO while on council other than run interference for his bother.

    Then he says, he's had it with City Hall and municipal politics. Then when Rob's illness happens, he does a complete Flip Flop.

    What is it Doug? What side of your mouth are you speaking from because your constant flip flopping on this issue of WHY YOU ARE RUNNING is the core reason why I would not vote for you. Well, that and ;your distortions of truth.

    Doug, you are a flip flopper! That makes you unworthy of my vote. Time both candidates took the kid gloves off and SHOW the city each and every lie and misrepresentation of truth Doug Ford has told and continues to tell through this campaign.
  8. Amazing, the same North York that gave us Mel Lastman as Mayor, is now soundly behind Doug Ford? So much for Scarborough being the epitome of meat-headedness in Toronto?
  9. @dama ooops and VERY Sorry Bill!

    I meant to address that portion to Karl.

    I know you (Bill) are very sane and no doubt we share similar opinions. Again, sorry Bill, Karl is indeed the Fraud Notion Troll on this board.

    I used Rick Mercer as an example cause he is Canadian and does satirical ambush video interviews like this dude had tried at Ford's Scarborough campaign office.

    But, I'd bet that volunteer would have punched Joan....somewhere else...no doubt. RIP Joan. Crazy Lady!
  10. Thanks for responding Ken and Karl. Typical of Ford Nation, attack one point with a ridiculous reply and ignore the post's true content.

    From your reply,I note with great interest you do not deny that bullying runs at the core of Fraud Notion, and you have no problem with it (nor the blatant lies, claims of accomplishments and impossible $ funding that Ford has put forward as truth).

    Keep drinking the Kool-Aid guys. It looks real good on you.

    Per the Troll comment - If Rick Mercer were to do what this Citizen Journalist did (he still lives in Halifax) are you saying it would be OK to punch him in the face on camera? Also , the out-of-town citizen journalist made no negative statements or did anything at all to warrant the beating, yet you defend it and by your actions support it. Very classy. er.. violent and arrogant. Nice.

    Bill, you are not a citizen journalist, rather a Troll on this board propping up a Mayor of a city you do not live in, pay taxes towards, or do anything other than buy stuff in, maybe... That's the difference. Own it.

    So guys, how do those Brown Shirts fit? Are they cotton or poly-fiber?
