A standing council meeting without a Ford to miss a meeting or a vote due to indifference, a sports game or something more important than serving the people and democracy. After ~15 years, I feel like... free.
 
I didn't find Renata's behaviour particularly shocking - she looked out of it and like she could've keeled over - but that's what I'd expect

John Filion was one of the few from the Left to speak and, unlike most of the others, managed to personally reminisce about man while acknowledging his many personal and professional flaws . . . but beyond that it was pretty much a circle jerk, with Mammo leading the pack.

He actually claimed that the following is his favourite memory of the time he spent with Rob.


And back to Thompson, I think this clip alone, the glee with which he lights into John Barber, puts lie to the suggestion Rob was never mean. Maybe Thompson never saw that face, but it will be a long time before a lot of people will be able to get it out of my head.

How can someone be called a "fat fuck" and somehow be portrayed as being mean? He didn't even notice the comment until it was pointed out to him. Even then I didn't think his reaction was out of line. Especially when it has been said by self righteous guy who writes for The Star. That comment, had it been said by Ford, to some Star reporter would have been all over the front pages for "body shaming". I would have responded much worse...something along the lines of "fuck you you bald headed ugly turd".
 
I'd say falsely implying a journalist is a pedophile, accusing him of taking pictures of kids, calling Trudeau a fag, telling a woman to go to Iran to get shot and raped, threatening to commit murder and the general sneering contempt he had for 90 percent of this city suggests he may have had a mean bone in his body.
 
I feel for the Ford kids; eventually they will read/hear their Dad being a total prick. Ford talking about his wife giving sexual favours etc is going to mess them up.

Learning that your father offered your mom to strangers for sex would mess some kids up. It's kind of a mean thing to do.

I'm not giving Barber a pass on his comment (although Mammoliti seems to be the only person there who heard him utter it).

I am reacting to the unrestrained glee Ford takes as he gets to use it to avoid Barber's question, berate him, and ultimately chase him away.

And that face! That is not the face of someone who has been shamed. That is the face of someone who really enjoys a fight and loves having the better of people. You can see it again in this delightful montage:


"Oh, are you worried about your grants?"

Sorry, but back to the original point, there were a whole bag of nasty bones in that body.

And let's not forget the drunken tirade at ACC, followed by accusing others of lying before the about face:

Don't blame it on alcohol either - the initial outburst might be booze driven - the false accusation and lies afterward aren't. He certainly had no qualms about lying, soiling the names of others and otherwise throw someone under the bus to save his skin. I would call that "mean" - and together with the other examples, constitute a pattern of behaviour that is downright illustrative of his ethics - that is, the lack thereof.

Happen to be in the area and took some photos even thought I don't support Ford.

People taking photos were nuts as they would jump in front of people taking photo or video shots with not thought about doing it. I gave one professional one a kick in the ass trying to get in front of me while shooting the video.
