“Innocent mistake on your part then. You might not be familiar with "ford fest", it's an annual campaign event the fords put on with their daddy's money and government funds- as in tax right-offs.”

“It was an open event in a public park that they pay for. If not to get attention for their neglected concerns by the joke they pay the salary of what else do you imagine the objective of any protest is?

When the criteria for the *paid* position of Mayor is not being fulfilled, it is foolish for the people not to demand he do the job they pay him for. He continually neglects that whole segment of the city's people and they have a right to confront him on it, especially in a public park their money maintains...”

“Your mind is very jumbled, you must have a LD.

1) the PAID position of Mayor has the criteria to represent all individuals in the city, yet Ford continues to neglect this whole segment.
2) when his job isn't being done, the people have a right to protest. They would be fools not to.
3) They caused zero commotion but to hold their sign in protest but were mobbed. If you can find any excuse for that kind of *savage* behaviour it says a lot about why you are sitting in your mom's basement.”

“Personal attacks because you have nothing to offer. Did Ford attack them,No. Is it his job to dance around in their parade, No. This was provoked by a few people thinking the represent the world when most of us are in different to them. Is it Ford's job as mayor to grand marshal every vocal groups events,No.”

“That is a silly premise, 'multiculturalism' works wonderfully in many cosmopolitan cities. Unfortunately, Harpers governing is allowing a lot of immigration scams to occur.”

“His name Ron Banerjee, and no, the TPS has not charged anyone and seem to be quite happy licking Ford's heals - he did give them their highest salary increase, guaranteed to remain the highest in Ontario...”

“I actually knot his guy,he wanted to show "the innocence of Muslims". I also know that the EDL types in Toronto use him as a face so they don't look like bunch of racists or bigots. I just didn't want to comment or mention him unless I was sure.Either way he is a hate ciminal.”

“Ron Banerjee is who he is and the police have yet to lay any charges even though there is photographic and video evidence. The police conveniently only popped up after the whole charade to escort the protesters out of the area.
TPS are Ford's hand maids, it certainly appears that way.”

“His name is Ron Banerjee, he's an anti-Muslim demonstrator. He has a pretty hate-spouting web presence and protests veraciously at Mosques and any Muslim events.
It appears that anything related to Ford is exempt from the law.”

“Having difficulty staying on topic? Those offices aren't being discussed in this context are they? I don't think MP have the same security issues...
Our Mayor has a desk in the corner at City Hall, so it might be easy to approach it”

OBoile on Jul 28, 2014 at 11:57:13

“It's not about security issues. Just because you are a part owner (a very small part in this case) of a building, doesn't mean you can hang out there whenever you want for as long as you want. They can meet with their MP, they can't barge into her office and refuse to leave until she meets with them. That is trespassing. The appropriate response in this case is to call the police.”

“The only way Bubbles got to run his campaign rally IN A PUBLIC PARK, MAINTAINED WITH TAX PAYER'S MONEY, was to state that all were invited- durrr...so how were they not invited?? My tax payments are meant to go to inbreed rallies? So, you wish for a dictatorship where this clown can just hijack the public purse?? 'Gravy Train' or what?
They were there to protest a 'mayor' who is prejudiced towards a whole segment of society- therefore not fulfilling the criteria of his *paid* position, and that's what is permitted to happen in a democratic society. If you do not like that policy you are welcome to live in North Korea.”

“stated the guy who was just born yesterday... Since protests are allowed in a democratic society, most elected officials expect it. If you are getting paid to represent the *whole* city but continuously ignore an entire segment of it, protests become a pretty predictable scenario that I think even Bubbles Ford knew was going to happen. The intent of this 'picnic' was pretty obvious from the get-go but became impossible to deny once the campaign t-shirts went out and the same old rhetoric was spouted in speeches ("promises made, promises kept"(no)- if that's not a campaign slogan, please explain what is)”

“Most people are quite angry at this behaviour, it was pretty *savage*, and if it gets people to the polling stations, the more the merrier!
Do look up the audit that Ford did himself when he got into office. It shines a pretty nice light on Miller. All this nonsense you uneducated people spew about Miller only comes from Ford propaganda. This city ran well until the dumb garbage truck driver's strike. It ran so well, Ford was able to ride on Millers coat tails of surplus money and beneficial programs for his first years. Just go and look up that audit before you respond.”

“The Public is already aware of what Rob Ford Represents. This election is not a shoe in for Chow lot's of people see Chow as just a thinly disguised Miller, with no actions, policies or programs over 8 years and the War on the Car, of the so called Lefty Leadership.

The more people split Toronto, or try and have people perceive those that support Rob as the Others, or Bad Torontonians/Canadians because their views are not yours, the stronger you make Rob and his campaign. Leave the Fool to his own devices and he will self destruct.

Nothing makes people come out in droves to vote than anger and in this election you want cooler heads to prevail.”

“That is a silly saying as our voting system is very flawed. ford got in with 38% of the vote.”

Mr Woo on Jul 26, 2014 at 16:09:37

“The saying is sarcastic and pretty much accurate. It reflects the flaws in a democratic system. It is also somewhat like the Churchill quote: "The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter". Ford won't get elected again but I remember talking to so many people before he was elected who thought he was just fine and no amount of opinion on my part would change their minds. Thus, we got the leader we deserved because too many people fell for "I'm here to stop the gravy train!". Its also how we got Harper.”
