“I see nothing wrong with what he said.
Go to park with a camera to take a picture of your 4 year old on the swing.
Watch how all the other parents react.
I've seen it 1st hand.
I've taken my different race niece to the zoo when she was 5.
The looks, comments & finger pointing was ridiculous.
Didn't mind the kids anymore til they were 10 or older.”

“Were you ever accused of being a pedophile? Why would he be justified in what he said he knew what he was there for and he did not take pictures of Fords children. Even a real pedophile would not be that stupid to be taking pictures of the MAYORS children were he would get caught! The mayor does not have a logical bone in his body!”

“He wasn't taking pictures of children.”

“I guess the fact that there were NO pictures of kids doesn't matter...”

“The more you mock him, the more likely he'll be voted back in.
Everybody loves an underdog.”
Rubyredman on Nov 26, 2013 at 14:23:03
“Close your eyes and pretend he is black. Tell me again if the low-income supporters would love them some crack smoking, sexual harassing, drunk driving underdog and consider voting him back in”
luke warmwater on Nov 26, 2013 at 14:13:23
“people love an underdog. people don't love a lying, fat, stupid dog. Any man with any decency would have resigned right away, knowing that kids and folks with addiction problems are watching. He is going to be directly responsible for an uptick in the trying and use of coke by people around the country, not just Toronto. As well as those looking to sell. I had to explain to my daughter what crack is and why the mayor is able to do an illegal drug and not go to jail.”

“I get that people love an underdog. Do they also love people with huge senses of entitlement, born into rich families with both political and crime connections? His popularity has zero to do with being an underdog and everything to do with Suburban voters willing to put up with anything for lower taxes.”

“exactly! I'd love to see what would happen if hte left decided to support him entirely, 100%.... I feel like he'd potentially quite rather than be voted in by the left.”
jameslowman on Nov 26, 2013 at 11:38:18
“i think its more to do with the fact that he is so visible. his supporters are the same people that if you wisper "cokacola" in there ear 60 times they will buy a coke regardless... if people want him gone, stop talking about him. he is a hulk of attention - the more we talk the bigger and greener he gets...”

“So I guess it's not criminal to knowingly destroying emails and paper-trails in an effort to hide evidence pertaining to the gas plants?
Oh which btw is currently being investigated by the OPP.
What Rob Ford is dooing hurts himself.
What Wynnn & co is doing is hurting all the residents of Ontario.”

“In essence a coup is what everyone is asking for because of personal issues.
So much for democracy.
Just call a recall election and let the people decide. Then everyone does it with a clear conscience
But I think if Wynn removes him, then right after she should step down as well.
Unless you think the squandering of tax money from our pockets by the entire provincial government for eHealth, Ornge, windmills, gas plants etc is okay.
I don't want Ford there either but at least he didn't cost me any money.
Can't say as much for Wynn & co.”
Angelo Barovier on Nov 14, 2013 at 20:58:35
“If it falls within the order of law then it is, in essence, NOT a coup.”
Nov 14, 2013 at 16:32:11
“He can't be forced out.
He was democratically elected. Just hold a recall election and he'll be voted out fair & square.
Problem is Wynn is too scared to call a recall for fear her lying , cheating criminal Liberal party will face the same. Think about it. With Ford, it's one guy. With Wynn, it's the entire party.”
hphoenix on Nov 15, 2013 at 00:54:50
“Let's get back to reality, shall we?
1. No such thing as a recall election in the municipal act.
2. Nice try at deflection, but the only criminal in Ontario is the self admitted one: Rob Ford.”

Heather M Riley on Nov 14, 2013 at 16:58:48
“We have no recall laws so she can't call an election. It's definitely time for some sort of recall mechanism to be passed into law for situations like this. This situation is beyond partisan politics. Ford is a danger to himself and others. He needs to go.”

“Amazing how many here who hate Rogers and are elated to see them suffering and laying off are the same who would criticize the laying off of good Canadian workers as well as preach supporting a Canadian company.
I wonder what those same people would say if Rogers was bought up by a US conglomerate?”

“Loretta sends you her best wishes for a long and cold winter from her bucolic Caribbean hideaway. She would say more but her dusky pool-boy is just now bringing her the first of many crisp G&Ts she will consume today in honour of the new pearls this latest layoff has afforded her.”

“Again, his salary was granted by the Board so the Board "fleeced"a s you say the shareholder.
He can ask for all he wants.The board okays it.
If he did a bad job, then it the boards fault.
If I give you $20 to mow the lawn and you don't, I get rid of you, hire someone who will and kiss the $20 goodbye.
My fault in believing you could do something to help.
why can't you understand that?”

“public service employees have no say in how their bosses, the Cabinet Ministers spend the money do they, or who gets grants, donations to causes etc? Heck taxpayers have no say, so according to this bill I should be able to say, heh I disagree, no taxes form me this year... that is if this bill wasn't just union busting because Harper is in cohoots with the elite...”
Simon Wagstaff on Nov 6, 2013 at 12:43:11
“again, unions also have a leadership team and hold votes to determine whom if anybody grant to give donations to? Same as corporations, an employee has no say in those donations do they? So what's the problem? It is only a problem if you are a PM with elites giving him orders.... companies and unions are really very similar, same rules should apply to both...”

“Privet company salaries are not controlled by the government.
That's why their called private companies.
Salaries are negotiated and approved by the Board of Directors who represent the shareholders so they're really the one you should be after.
Do you really think the salaries of Bill Gates or Warren Buffet are dictated by the government?
Where the heck would you get that idea?
Just like so many under performing pro athletes that get traded or released, there's a buyout clause.
The failing CEO is hired & fired by the board and at this point, nobody can save RIM/Blackberry.
Classic business mistake. Invent something great and sit on it.
No more advancement in technology and watch everyone pass you by.”
Simon Wagstaff on Nov 5, 2013 at 14:15:39
“private companies are regulated by the government, especially in regards to shareholder rights, which have been culled so that all the shareholders have aright to is to be fleeced by the execs... getting 22 mill because you are a complete and utter failure is capitalism at it best it seems... Smith must be rolling over in his grave...”

“Well let's hope when Ford leaves, that Toronto gets and endless array of corrupt mob driven mayors like Montreal.
Then when your money is wasted , embezzled and laundered, Toronto will finally get what it deserves.”
Selene Cusping on Nov 5, 2013 at 12:48:51
“Okay, let's just assume that based on Ford's connections to drug dealers and convicted criminals, that we might already have a corrupt mayor?
Just for discussion.
And since the mayor has already committed us to $1 billion (PLUS cost overruns) for 3 subway stops that serve LESS people than the LRT plan (which would have had 7 stops, served more and been paid - FULLY - by the province) that our money HAS been wasted by Ford and his obsession with "Subways, subways, subways!"
Oh, and did I mention the $40 million a year to run the subway that Ford committed the City of Toronto to? The Province would have paid for the LRT to operate.
Yep: I can't imagine the mob doing worse than the Fords. I, frankly, might not be able to tell the difference EXCEPT that things might get better.”

“What a ridiculous comment.”
Simon Wagstaff on Nov 5, 2013 at 12:40:17
“you mean you aren't aware that Rob has done exactly that with his subway to the Scar? You do know that that subway will cost more to run in a year than it will generate from riders? By a huge amount? Yah, right... Rob is a disaster, fiscally as well as morally and ethically... all to appease his "buddies" in the construction business... wow, how naive you are...”
