From Etobicoke to city hall.
The fallout from Rob Ford dropping out of the mayoral race is yet to be seen but there is a hidden picture which bears discussion -- the age old myth: "it might happen to you but it won't happen to me!" When an illness strikes or a death occurs it is too late to take care of many important issues.
