A win for the Ford haters
Spare me the clap trap about how the good citizens of Toronto were well represented by a law suit that will likely bring down Mayor Ford.
Lawyer Clayton Ruby and his client Paul Magder were all hand-wringing sorry about how it was a sad day for Toronto, but you just knew, in the words of Christie Blatchford, they were "fully erect" as they said it. They had fulfilled a lefty wish and nullified the will of the electorate.
I don't need to remind you here of all of the scandals and mismanagement we have been subject to at the hands of the city and provincial government. But I will quote Lorrie Goldstein of the Toronto Sun, who said on my show that if he were to move to clean up city hall, he wouldn't have started with what the mayor did.
My column in the Sun reads, "Rob Ford may soon be the former mayor of Toronto.
I am unhappy with Rob Ford, because it did not have to happen. To use an analogy from Ford’s favourite sport of football, he committed an unforced error."
