Mayoral candidate calls for drug and alcohol testing for fellow candidates

Sarah Thomson has already taken a test, and has posted the results publically...

Sarah Thomson says all candidates for mayor in Toronto, should be forced to take drug and alcohol testing.

Thomson even went as far as to take a test herself, and post the results for all to see.

In a release, the mayoral hopeful says, “You can’t judge a book by it’s cover”.

“ I often get asked if I do drugs, and I wanted to assure all Toronto residents that I do not have any alcohol or addiction issues. I think it is important for the people of Toronto to know if their future Mayor might have issues that could severely impact our public image as a world class city.”

Responding to the call, Mayor Rob Ford says he would gladly take a test and has offered to do so in the past.

"I'm as clean as a whistle." said the Mayor when asked about drugs.

Ford went on to say "I have not touched drugs or alcohol in months. I'm as sober as a judge."

    She's still in the running? I had no idea. Although, as a former member of the Liberal party, she'd be nearly as fiscally clueless as Chow is.

      @Jack There is no news of her at all hence once in a while she has to make some noise to get her in print.. like the white horse and now this drug test..

      $200 is a cheap price to pay for publicity..later on.. she will throw her support to John Tory hoping that John will appoint her a seat in any committee

    Actually, for good reason, we do judge a book by its cover. Though attractive, Ms Thomson's offbeat dreadlock appearance, which would be fine for the arts, is too quirky for the reins of government. It cancels out credibility she might otherwise have had. As for drugs, her clear-eyed visage says a firm `no.`No test required.

      @frankling Attractive?????

      Plus you can diagnose no drug use from her "clear-eyed visage"

      Are you sure that YOU are not on crack????

    While I like dreadlocks as much as the next guy, I think she should be tested for drugs.
    Because obviously its affecting her decision in continually going out in public like that. At least neaten it up- it really doesn't look good "shplayed" all over the place like that. If she had the dreads down to one single braid, it would look a lot better.

      @Karl Burgin The dreadlocks do nothing for me, man. I can't help comparing them to another image:

      Sorry, but that's all I can think of when I see those dreadlocks!

      @Angry Bill Wow....surprisingly accurate....

      And thanks...because now I can't unsee that image when I see Sarah Thompson ;p

      Still trying to figure out if its a good or a bad thing...
