Instead of being remembered as the guy who couldn’t effectively lead this city, Ford’s legacy could easily be recast as a politician whose waste-fighting ways so enraged the left that they ran him out of office on a rail. That’s the kind of narrative that could propel a range of Ford successors into city hall.
Yeah this worries me too. But hey, let’s not give them any ideas right? Weren’t his own voters pretty disappointed? I mean he did lose the support of his own right wing inner circle so I feel like the martyr story might be a hard sell.
He’s out! It’s a verdict. I’d want to assume that even a lot of Ford Nation would have clued in to his gross, clownish incompetence by this point, but there are unfortunately a lot of idiots out there. Toronto needs to de-amalgamate, IMO.
