Toronto police have arrested a man for an online post related to last Friday's Ford Fest.

Ford Fest was held at Thomson Memorial Park in Scarborough in the evening. 

On Friday afternoon, 37-year-old Dilaz Rajwani of Toronto surrendered to police. 

He has been charged with counsel an uncommitted indictable offence. 

Rajwani is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.

      @john Not so lucky are you? Robby drives drunk, beaks up his brother in law, has his gang members shot and beaten, threatens to kill people on video...and so much more and you worry about eggs and tomatoes?

      You're a fucking cunt, just like Burgin the pussy licking thief.

    As Mayor Ford is a rock star there is bound to be some hooligans involved
    like this mischief-maker arrested. My compliments to the police for handling it.

    But totally the Ford Fest was a great success.

    There are some good photos at the Sun web page. The photos show Mayor Ford
    as a new person , so successful looking and dashing.

    Sarah Thompson on her horse (such a nice photo), and Karen Stinz all had a
    good time at the Fest.

    - What a party !

    Good going Mayor Ford.

    Thank you NewsTalk 1010

      @Peter So you support corrupt leadership.
      Enjoy your party though since that's what it is all about eh?
    2. Karl Burgin posted on 07/28/2014 11:59 AM
      @So you support I'm sorry....but first off that makes no sense.
      Secondly, Ford is not a corrupted mayor- personal issues yes, but no issues on the job.
      Thirdly, don't speak of corrupted leadership- especially when one so blatant as our provincial Liberals have been voted in with an overwhelming majority.

      Yes, I understand the last point may not be the same level of government. But its still a blatant double-standard.

      @Sammy .
      Thank you for your comment Sammy.

      I have to say it seems that the police did act well in arresting an "online poster" He must have had references to his identity on the post site, then the police could look him up and question him.

      Perhaps it was a Ford supporter who raised the complaint originally.

      It's nice to know the police were able to close the deal.

      It seems that the Ford haters can't do anything right.

      Thank you NewsTalk 1010

    don't worries he will get away with it . the problum with the net is thay have to find records of what he said ETC. it is easy to get the ip address of someone who did not wrong and arrest them . .it is a lot harder sense we have stuff like VPN sand boxes proxy s ETC .

    2. Karl Burgin posted on 07/28/2014 12:00 PM
      @You will never Actually Doug Ford is technically right- he's never been involved in any real political scandal.
    3. John posted on 07/28/2014 12:17 PM
      @Karl Burgin you're also correct Karl. He's never been really involved in his job the last 4 yrs
    4. Karl Burgin posted on 07/28/2014 12:28 PM
      @John No...he never was involved in the last year-and-a-half, when city council, in their almighty wisdom decided Toronto needed two mayors instead of one.
      But I guess it is rather hard to be a mayor, when idiots are throwing silly lawsuits at you from all sides (i.e. Conflict of interest, boardwalk restaurant, Clayton ruby going to supreme court, etc...)


      But I guess if Ford wasn't involved on the job:
      -There wouldn't be the success with the garbage
      -The lights around the Allen/Sheppard area wouldn't be synchronized
      -He wouldn't have gotten the $660 from the late John Flahrety for the Scarborough subway
      -He wouldn't have gotten the two upper levels of government to agree to do the Sheppard subway
      -He wouldn't have brought the witless spending at city hall under control
      -He wouldn't have saved the city millions of dollars (I would say a billion dollars, but your head might explode)
      -He wouldn't have gone abroad (to the U.S.) to bring business to Toronto

      ...would you like me to keep going, pointing out the blatant flaws in your broken logic.
    5. tanjo posted on 07/28/2014 02:59 PM
      @Karl Burgin I was going to comment on your examples, but then I thought to myself: "Why would I comment on savings that I have never seen, or do not exist?"

      ooooooOOOOOOOH ! (burn)
    6. Karl Burgin posted on 07/28/2014 03:13 PM
      @tanjo Concerning savings of the upper echelons of government, we will never see either. We also never see payment on the debt.

      You don't have to believe Ford if you don't want to. But I've heard from the CFO himself that the savings are around the billion dollar mark (Rob Ford had brought him on the Sunday show, and I heard him again repeat in a different venue). And I've heard Sue Ann Levy positively comment on that too.

      Now, the only argument against the billion-dollar saved tagline, is that its a conspiracy.... but then again, to what end?
    7. tanjo posted on 07/28/2014 03:46 PM
      @Karl Burgin If you are referring to Pennachitti, he referred to them as "budget savings" or something, and that they do not translate to real dollars in our pocket.

      He also admitted that, using the same math, David Miller saved us more money than Rob Ford.

      Personally, I don't think either of them are very good at it.

      @John ya. and that's why he gave his salary away..
    9. dama posted on 07/28/2014 04:12 PM
      @tanjo I guessed there was saving.. maybe less than the billion Rob Ford said,, (to some he lie,, he is a lair lair.. lol) but still savings,, some in terms of causing inconvenience..like the TTC as essential service when no other mayors were able to do it.. so that's an achievement.. you did save the $60 car thingie..

      taxes under him went up as with other mayors but lesser .. look at David Miller;s years.. at least average 3.5 to 4%

    These Lefties are always using or threatening violence to prevent other people from assembling peacefully. I don't see anyone disrupting the activities of Olivia Chow. With the Leftie/Union Leader/Liberal Mafia coalition firmly in control at Queen's Park, Toronto taxpayers can't affort NOT to have Rob Ford as Mayor. Olivia Chow is a union leader stooge and John Tory is too weak to deal with them. Rob Ford is the only one who can stand up for Toronto taxpayers. Remember that the professional parasites will be out in force to vote for Olivia Chow. Let's hope that taxpayers stand up for their rights by voting for Rob Ford.

      @People want and your definition of a REAL mayor? One that hikes your taxes every year.(david Miller) . one that gravy trained their expense accounts and cheap housing(O Chow) one that approved a $12 thousand retirement party ? (DM)

      so I rather have a Harvey's Hamburger Manager. at least he/she makes a decent wage at Harvey.. and I believe has more customer service's skills like Rob Ford who returns every phone calls to people who has issues that called him...

      You cannot be talking about the same person who is still standing despite the odds, uphill climb and constant battles?
      I'm also sure you don't mean the same Rob Ford who has stood up to the shirtless hooligans, the constant media scrutiny, or the predictions of doom and gloom by the so-called political pundits....

      Yeah.....I don't think your ill-thought out comment applies to Rob Ford.

      @arthur I just gave you facts about Ford that counter your (flawed) definition of cowardice- and yet you just keep spewing with no substance.
      One might think your unwillingness (or inability) to proper substantiate your comment as being cowardly. Or maybe you're just inept.

      But please, if you must keep going to further shed light on your stupidity, then please- fell free.
    5. dama posted on 07/28/2014 03:24 PM
      @Karl Burgin You should take a break from posting in here for your own health

      Obviously from all your posts .. you are really a Ford hater and that is fine.. to each his own.. but you should look after your health.. for whenever you see a Ford name or hear anything about any Ford.. your blood boils and your face is seeing red that is no good..

      Your hatred for Rob and Doug Fords is so great that you lumped his whole family as "abnormal coward from a dysfunctional family of cowards and addicts" and I dont think you meant his mother and his deceased father who started a family business worth million of dollars long ago before Rob and Doug Ford are in politics.. i dont think I can say that about you.. Can I?

      Leave their family out if you want to just talk about Rob and Doug.. "abnormal coward from a dysfunctional family of cowards and addicts" I think Rob Ford is braver than you and I, for after all the issues he faced.. he is still WILLING to face the voters..

      Like you said.. wait till Oct 27 and maybe you will have your enjoyment to see him not voted back in..

      meantime take care of your health.. don't want you to miss Oct 27 if something happens to you..

    When is ROB FORD and DOUG FORD going to apologize to the Toronto Star reporters whom they both knowingly slandered?

    So far their lack of action shows that they are the same people as they were before.

      @When is ROB Of all the things they should apologize for, this one is quite a ways down the list. In my opinion, not worth the effort you are putting in to publicize it.
    3. Are you kidding posted on 07/28/2014 11:23 AM
      @tanjo Are you kidding me? This pathetic liar (who totally breaks public trust) made comments about these two people (who were right all along) and then he admitted the truth about his behaviour later.
      Yet he feels he can go on his merry way along with is puppet brother as if no one was victimized?

      Rob Ford and his brother are not the kind of people we need in high places.
    4. Karl Burgin posted on 07/28/2014 12:06 PM
      @When is ROB Are you Kevin Donovan or Robyn Dolittle?

      And why should Ford apologize? Aside from the obvious border-line slander on the Star's part.
      The Star probably made a lot of dough in stories and headlines on Ford's back. Or Robyn Dolittle and her book tour through the U.S. late night circuit at Ford's expense?

      On the contrary, they should be thanking Ford for lining their pockets with moolah.
    5. tanjo posted on 07/28/2014 03:03 PM
      @Karl Burgin Donovan and Dolittle are experienced reporters and have much thicker skin than "I am going to use the first phrase in my comment as my handle" is giving them credit for.

      And, as Karl pointed out, they are both enjoying enhanced reputations and success due to the Ford's attacks on them.

      An apology at this point in time is pointless.

    It seems that only Ford Haters get arrested.

    Ford Haters can also be identified by having poor grammar, and swearing a lot
    in their posts.

    Because they are loud, and boisterous, their visibility blocks the much stronger and massive silent majority.

    Ford Nation will own October 27.

    That is the way it works in politics.

    Good going Mayor Ford.

      @Peter I love Rob Ford. He has put so much of a stain on the Conservative's.
      Conservative used to mean a family first, traditional, religious image and Ford has stained to reputation and party for years to come.

      Drugs, lies, gang and criminal association, dirty girls, filthy talk, racist, womanizing, drunken behaviour, more lies, violent outbursts and more lies.

      No one has done more damage to the Conservative image as Rob Ford.
      Four more years and the name Conservative will be on par with Crime.

    Welcome to Ontario! This guy is charged for encouraging an assault that never happens, yet under Dalton McChicken a man is almost beaten to death in Caledonia and the OPP are told to stand there and not intervene and the guy gets nothing.
    Welcome to our (selective) police state where, if you belong to a certain group, you can get away with anything.

    When our premier flaunts the law without consequences one can hardly blame citizens for doing the same.
    1. The premiers posted on 07/28/2014 04:31 PM
      @Frankie The premiers should take some notes from the Toronto mayor.
      There is a guy who almost gets away with murder. I hope the law kicks in for Ford at some point. (Which proves he is not one of us 'regular people').
  12. Hulk Hogan posted on 07/28/2014 05:25 PM
    So Rob Ford can threaten to kill someone on camera and it's fine, but some guy makes an online post saying people should throw eggs at him and that's illegal? And then somehow Ford tries to say the police are biased against him? They literally let him get away with murder, while cracking down on random internet postings that don't even encourage anything major.
    1. Rob is rich posted on 07/28/2014 05:33 PM
      @Hulk Hogan Rob is rich and therefore he doesn't face justice.
      He 'ain't one of us regular folks' like he pretends to be.
