Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today the Toronto City Council voted to take away much of Mayor Rob Ford’s authority over the city budget and civic emergencies. Mayor Ford said he will challenge the vote in court, where he is also threatening to sue several former staffers over their comments to police. An Ipsos poll found that 76% of Toronto residents want Mayor Ford to resign, and his favorite football team condemned his “unseemly” behavior. And while his talk radio show was canceled, he will soon have a TV news talk show. For sheer entertainment, shouldn’t Ford be Mayor for Life?
