" If Tory will not let Ford into his playdate group, then would Rob still have the strength to piss on everyone else's cheerios?"
This here is the first news story off the press on day one when council reconvenes.
In his "own" way, Worms suggestion of deputy mayor says yes. But most of the other speculation seems to say no. I think that's what's letting the air out of the tires.
About 2 months ago just before cancer and Friday switcheroo, we were expecting the most epic Rob Ford citywide bender just about now. Remember that?

Doug Ford says John Tory in for a "rude awakening real quick" in his role as new mayor
FFS, shouldn't Doug be taking somebody's label order?
YPQ said:Why is he speaking and why are people reporting it? How do we make him STFU? He does understand that he lost right?
I've said it before in another thread, so apologies for repeating it here. If Tory is serious about building bridges and mending fences, I hope he doesn't waste too much time and energy trying to bring Rob and Doug in. Go to the people that King Rob claimed under his fiefdom instead. Not all of them are stupid, not all of them are true believer zealots. Show them results, start earning trusts again. But forget about bringing in Rob and Doug into the tent.
There's getting along and working with people of different and even opposing political stripes, and then there's making an (metaphorical of course) arsonist the city's fire chief. Giving Rob and or Doug any serious access to power in City Hall IMO would be similar to the latter.
Bender may still happen yet. Let's hope it doesn't take any innocent bystanders down if it does.
There is no point in including Doug in anything.
