The Emperor has No Clothes story is playing out.
And I hope the pressure continues on Rofo and Thug. If there was a time where RoFo was genuine about wanting to stop the waste and incompetence, and respecting the taxpayer. It's long gone. If it existed at all.
On a personal note, I'd like to thank you sweetlou for holding that 'Why won't you talk to Dt. Giroux' sign. Sometimes it's not just about the numbers alone, but the timing.
re: Mikey Ford for council seat. His youth alone doesn't bother me much. His inexperience and strange silence does. I don't necessarily need to see a long list of credentials, I've seen plenty of book smart but out of touch, degree-d idiots. Ignatieff comes to mind. And Tim 'million jobs plan!' Hudak. I mean I'm not voting for Morgan Baskin for mayor, but I admire her chutzpah at least. Her platform doesn't provide much detail and is mostly youthful idealism. But I get the sense she wants the job for the right reasons. Heck I think she might have potential as a councilor. She might be better than someone like Mammoliti at least.
But yeah, Michael Ford, he seems to have the demeanor of someone who got dragged into a mandatory family function. Maybe he is an otherwise nice guy who's just doing what uncle Rob and Thug tells him to do.
But I think I already had my fill of someone named Ford who doesn't really want to do the job. Andray Domise looks like an impressive candidate. Hope he wins and delivers. Etobicoke (and Toronto ) can probably use a break after the wise and benevolent reign of councilor\co-mayor Doug.
