In excess of 60 police cars arrived on the scene toContinue reading “Brampton House Party Gets Out of Hand”

Selfie tabby declines offer to run for mayor: No FergNation

Recently I awoke to find that my tabby Ferguson had been at my iPhone during the night and had taken a selfie. He’s still not talking about who the photo was sent to, but in my trash folder I did find the draft of an email to Purina, makers of Whiskas, which I know toContinue reading “Selfie tabby declines offer to run for mayor: No FergNation”

Selfie found on iPhone

I foolishly left my iPhone unlocked last night and this morning I found this selfie of Ferguson. He swears up and down that it’s for his Canadian Pussport, but I think he’s up to something!

Live on CNN! Toronto’s City Hall Circus Continues

So the fact that Ford has been successful in keeping down taxes seems to be enough for some folks to claim he’s doing a great job, regardless of the circles in which he moves and the videos in which he stars.

Rob Ford, Rodney Dangerfield: Two tie-challenged guys getting no respect!

Below are the top US talk show hosts taking shots at Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in the wake of his admitting to smoking crack cocaine.

A letter to Toronto’s Mayor Ford from Montreal

Your Honor, As mayor of a large city you may well be familiar with Thomas Hardy’s 1886 classic The Mayor of Casterbridge, but to paraphrase Oliver Hardy, not Thomas, ‘Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten into’. Let me start by mentioning that as a Montrealer through-and-through I am in no position to point fingersContinue reading “A letter to Toronto’s Mayor Ford from Montreal”

Toronto’s problems go beyond Mayor Ford’s drug and alcohol use

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is becoming a darling of the US media; in fact the beleaguered mayor was the lead story on yesterday’s Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield on CNN.
