Another Ford taking a run for Toronto City Council

Michael Ford files his papers to run in the heart of 'Ford Nation' in Etobicoke...

Michael Ford has filed his papers to run in Ward 2 in Etobicoke in the upcoming municipal election.

He's the young son of Kathy Ford, and the nephew of both Rob and Doug.

The Etobicoke seat is held by Doug, who announced that he would not be seeking re-election, instead focusing his time on helping his brother Rob get re-elected to the mayor's office.

The riding is in the heart of 'Ford Nation', with Rob holding the Ward 2 seat, for 10 years before leaving to chase the chain of office.

Michael is in his early 20's and is an account executive at the Ford company, Deco Labels and Tags.

Doug had once said in a conversation on Newstalk1010, that he expected another Ford would be running in that ward, but he wouldn't give an indication on who that would be.

Michael was the man who picked up Rob Ford when he left his Etobicoke home to check into rehab.

      @Mark7 Name ONE thing Ford has done that's anywhere near as bad as running a communist dictatorship where everyone is starving and your whole family dies in a labour camp if you speak out against the government.

      Think before you compare a city in the greatest country in the world to that hellhole.

      @Jack You are truly an idiot, at least with North Korea and Cuba you know what you're going to get. The Fords have destroyed the Toronto we knew and loved, made us the laughingstock of the world, and turned City Hall into clown time.

      And...Castro and Kim Jong-un are sober when they destroy their country, unlike the Ford dynasty.

      Only an idiot would defend the Fords so go and Jack-Off, Jack.

      @Mark7 ohhh those bully boy Fords have upset your sensitivities by making YOU the laughing stock of the world while during the process of saving the tax payer in excess of $750 million, ensuring no labour unrest for 4 years, outsourcing and implementing an efficient waste pick-up and most importantly launching a change of culture at city hall.

      @Jack Doesn't the biggest city in the 'greatest country in the world' deserve someone better than Ford?

      @Mark7 From what I have read from your postings.. hmmmm you are not intelligent at all.. to have a nice discussion here without calling anyone name.. so you the real idiot here..

      I dont normally start by insulting or calling anyone names but with you I made an exception..

      If Toronto is North Korea.. you would not have the priviledge to post your nonsense for internet is not available in North Korea..

      I would prefer Rob Ford drunk then sober Kim Jong Un and Rob Ford only hurt himself than its citizen.

      Until you know how to carry a sane discusiion, please refrain from logging into CFRB1010

    And wait for it...... there it is! I have said it before, you vote for one Ford, you get the whole family! This is becoming a little creepy and scary now. Councillors should be limited to one per family. I think it is great to see someone of that age group run, but for some reason, it is hearing the name, Ford or Deco Labels that gives me the chills. From what I have noticed from anyone that runs for council and is part of their own or family business, it is not in the best interest of the city, rather the best interest of said business. It would be interesting to see how well Deco Labels would do in business if none of the family was in council or the Mayor of Toronto.

    Ya know, people posting in someone else's name is just as deceiving to readers on here as what the Fords are doing to the voters of Toronto. If you cannot post in you own identity and pretending you are someone else, don't post anything.

    Here is one for the polls Newstalk 1010... Should running for council in a city be limited to one person per family?

    Or another...

    Should anyone tied to a business in the city be eligible to run for council?

      @Suz58 After reading my post, I realize that I am a fool...please accept my apologies for being stupid as that in a free society anyone can post under what ID they want. It's called democracy and freedom of expression and if anyone doesn't like it they can move to North Korea.

      I am truly an idiot and sincerely, sincerely, sincerely, sincerely apologize and am truly, truly, truly, truly sorry.

      @Suz58 that apology is just as stupid as that new Wendy's commercial .
    3. Suz58 posted on 07/19/2014 11:11 AM
      @Suz58 Freedom of expression is one thing and something I truly believe in. Using someone else's identity falsely to make your point is just plain cowardly! If you have any conviction or believe in what you are saying, you would not have to hide behind or falsely using someone else's login.

      If you believed in democracy and freedom of speech, you would use your own login or create another but not use someone else's name to spread your lack of intellect, deceit and moronic beliefs and values. You need to grow a set, go back to the second grade and learn how to write so you can properly voice your opinion instead of attempting to make someone else the fool because you are jealous and immature.

      You are what is wrong in today's world and should crawl under the same rock with the other corrupt politicians.

      To anyone reading this, if you do not see a pic of a dog on my posts, they are not my words.

      @john I totally agree john, and even worse is the person that wrote it which was not me.

      @Suz58 To the suz58 want to be...you are truly an idiot. Since I did not post the comment above, and if you had any education above grade five, I give you credit for calling yourself an idiot...I think it may be the one thing we agree on!

      @Suz58 Will the Suz58 please stand up...

      Ok.. back on point: It seemed from your post that Mike Ford had already won the race.. hence the "more deception and perks for Deco Labels"

      He has every right to put his name on the ballot and you can put your name in to challenge him as well.. and Mike Ford will not be the last Ford to get into politics.. there night be more in the future.. like the Bushes or Trudeaus..and Daltons..
    12. Suz58 posted on 07/21/2014 09:54 AM
      @dama I know Dama. Just like Rob Ford does not have to step down and everything this family does seems to slide off them. No, I did not mean to make it look like little Mikey had won already, but has no one else had enough of Ford BS?

      I am not only talking in TO, I have seen this in small towns as well. People owning business get into council to better their business. That may be democracy but the rules should be stiffer. When are Canadians going to begin refusing to be screwed over by these rich politicians that think they know what is best for everyone when all they really do know is how to take care of themselves.
    13. dama posted on 07/21/2014 11:36 AM
      @Suz58 You have just described every politicians/senators on earth... politic s a dirty game.. and very corrupt too and the laws allowed them to do so until they are caught.. Mike Duffy for one..

      so really.. Rob Ford is not bad in that area.. unlike Susan Fenell in Brampton..

      I know this is besides what this article is all about.. ...
      .
    14. Suz58 posted on 07/21/2014 02:06 PM
      @dama Dama, I totally agree with you! If the politicians start out with good intentions and trying to help the people, they soon change their ways when they figure out how the game is played.

      As far as the Fords, ( I do categorize them altogether, cause if you get one, you seem to get them all), they make it look as if they are not corrupt, but for all the good he says he has done, the paper does not match the numbers. He is all messed up on I believe it is sugar beach, he knew what was going on there, it was during his watch. Now he is trying to blame it on someone else.

      I do think the rules and regulations for running for any kind of office should be revised in this ever changing world. Really, what good are more than one person of like mind from the same family going to do?

      And yes, off topic but the senate is another joke.
      I will put it to you this way, I worked as a support person for people with developmental disabilities. I was in it for the people I supported. Many of the people I worked with were in it for the money. There is a big difference on the quality and level of truth and support when comparing the two. Same as someone in council of mayor, senate and right up to PM. Ford makes a big deal about giving his salary back, this is just a way of making the people think he is in it for them. If I were a betting woman, I would bet that if Michael were to win, that would be the end of school, so already, the deception begins. I really don't believe nor have they given anything substantial enough to prove that any one of the Fords are not working to save the taxpayers as much as they are the family business Deco Labels.

      @lisa suppose, just suppose that young Ford wins and by a healthy majority up in ward 2 will you and the other haters dismiss the results of the electorate?
    2. tanjo posted on 07/19/2014 11:09 PM
      @DMCP Not necessarily the results of the electorate, but I highly doubt he will make an impact at city hall.

      Without his brother in the mayor's chair, Doug would have just been another loudmouthed backbencher.

      Unfortunately, this removes the possibility of Rob returning to his Ward 2 seat, which I was hoping would happen.
    3. DMCP posted on 07/20/2014 08:42 AM
      @tanjo Yes another loudmouth from the backbench who will speak up for those Toronto voters whose concerns are always dismissed as being irrelevant . Isn't democracy so inconvienient?
      There could also be a Ford going into Doug Holidays ward. Hmmm.....Perhaps coming soon a Ford in Scarbourgh.
    4. dama posted on 07/21/2014 08:53 AM
      @lisa Even if Rob Ford lost in the election, it will be naive of you to think there willbe no Ford's news ,,

      There is already a Rob For d stage show.... maybe a . Ford Reality Show, a Ford summer concert .. and then some..
    5. Suz58 posted on 07/21/2014 10:01 AM
      @dama Absolutely right Dama. Rob loves to be in the spotlight. People on here feel sorry for him because his every move is scrutinized by the media. He likes it that way... They would not be talking about Baldwin playing him in a movie or talking about reality shows unless he has given his ok.

      Maybe the new reality show should be...two months in the mayor of Toronto seat...anything goes...couldn't be worse than it is now, welcome to the side show!
    6. Eternal sideshow posted on 07/21/2014 02:13 PM
      @lisa Even if everyone in the Ford family died of a brain embolism tomorrow, it wouldn't stop. The Star would set up a 24/7 live webcam pointed at Rob Ford's tombstone and the Sun would offer regularly scheduled editorials speculating on which state of decomposition Rob was in, because the media in Toronto have forgotten how to report on anything else. Not to mention the comment board trolls who would keep his name alive for decades, blaming him for everything from the creation of the common cold to the Rwandan genocide.

    My nephew, Mikey, will carry on the illustrious name of Ford in Ward 2 for many years to come. After all, he has many things in common with my little brother, Robbie, and me.

    He is overweight, even at his young age. He can drive the Escalade and carry Robbie's bags. He has the Ford sloped forehead and he's really, really, really smart. After all, he finished first year subjects in that really, really, really hard business course at the college.

    Mikey also works really, really, really hard at Deco for me, making the great entries I need to be made for the business. He will work really, really, really hard for the voters of Ward 2 and will never be shirtless in public.

    Robbie and I are very proud of our young nephew and urge all you Ward 2 members of Ford hamlet to come out and vote for him in October. Look for him to be at the Scarborough Ford Fest soon. We've got him handing out beers when I'm handing out the 20's.

    Rob will be handing out the truth and nothing but the truth because he's really, really, really sober and focused like a laser on getting re-elected or, at least, running in the top 5.

    Remember, I am the brains of two campaigns now, and I will be leader of the PC's.
