Indeed. Getting sick doesn't excuse past behavior. I do very much agree that City Hall is better off with his absence, especially the efficiency of council meetings.
The Flagg brigade will demand a state funeral.
That'd make sense. They've never been shy about having him in front of the cameras when he's been sick so maybe it's something else.While I think cancer may be taking it's toll here, I wouldn't discount the idea that Rob has also fallen off the wagon again, or maybe jumped off with both feet. He has a deep distrust of medical authorities, has unresolved drug/alcohol issues... cancer doesn't necessarily change that.
The Flagg bros can pay for it themselves. Respect for taxpayers!
Nobody is more relieved that Rob Ford appears to be out of the political picture than I am, but I certainly take no joy in the fact that he's most likely terminally ill. I lost my mother and my brother to cancer and both of them suffered terribly before they died. My heart also goes out to his kids who are probably going to lose their father soon. Sure, they've had a shitty upbringing but I can certainly attest to the fact that losing a parent is traumatic no matter how narcissistic and generally lousy that parent happens to be.
"I don’t believe in all this public-funded health care because we gotta pay for it," Ford told WJFK's "The Sports Junkies."
Ford said that in Canada, the country "can't afford" their universal health coverage.
"What you guys are doing down there, I just, I can’t get my head around it because it’s costing a fortune, and I don’t know where you guys are going to find the money, except the taxpayers pockets," he continued.
“And I think people are taxed to death, and I don’t mind two-tier healthcare; if you want healthcare, you pay for it. I understand that. And we have general healthcare up here, or OHIP we call it, but, you know, it’s gonna cost a fortune for you guys to put in this ObamaCare, and I just don’t see how the people are going to be able to afford it, to tell you the truth.”
Don't really wanna pile on here but it certainly looks like Rob's train is pulling into Kipling Station now. On a human level, I feel genuinely bad for the old mook. Stuff like this can make any man, even a stump like Rob put his thinking cap on. But really, I'll bet he's at home, in bed, Cheezy dust & weed everywhere, tons of opioids, blow on the nightstand, mickey of Russian Prince & a shot glass, ladyboy midget porn on an 80" screen.
