You beat me to it! Despite what Doug says, people do care about Dean French hiring all of his friends and family.
If you want to hire friends and family, start your own business and spend your own money.
Notice how the Fords' approach to public office is like an extension of "their own business"; and they've *always* made a point of "spending their own money" rather than so-called feeding off the trough, even when it comes to niggly pens-and-erasers stuff. (That's how RoFo came to be consistently, year after year, the lowest-spending Toronto councillor.)
Of course, as the Renata suit indicates, the *way* that they run their business might not be as airtight as they pretend. But, smoke and mirrors can do wonders. (And I'm now reading that Jeffrey Epstein might not be the bombproof zillionaire he pretended to be.)
Always wondered where Rob Ford got his pens, note pads, and other office supplies. Either he "borrowed" the pens from the bank, or "borrowed" office supplies from his family business, Deco Labels, or friends.
Stop saying "borrowed". He *got* them! The thing is: you, the taxpayer didn't pay for them The Fords are independent businessmen, they can afford to get their own--unlike those lazy loser pinko councillors who'd be nowhere if you weren't paying their tab...
Elect more independent businessmen. Yadig?
Holy Shit, was French single-handedly filling all the public service vacancies? Never mind all those "Liberal insiders", this is the French army!A spokeswoman for Ford confirmed that Ian Neita, who was appointed to the board of Workplace Safety Insurance Board in December, submitted his resignation today.globalnews.ca
Also know as "shrinkage" or "loss".
Something the other "non-business owners" or "ex-employee" Councillors cannot do. They can't go back to their old place of employment and "get" office supplies, like the Fords. That would be "theft".
