More about Mayor Ford
As a fellow Canadian who lives 30 minutes from Toronto but works in the city, I, too, am really embarrassed by this clown. It is not the image we want to project for one of the largest and most beautiful cities in North America. This saga has become a reality TV show by accident.
As bad as this guy is, he is still more popular than any politician in the US.
You know, I live an hour away from Toronto, we've been been watching this since Ford took office 3 years ago, and have been embarrassed the whole time. The last 6 months have been excruciating to watch and listen to, but, like seeing a car wreck, you can't look away. He may have been in the international spotlight for the last month or so, we have to live with it every day – have sympathy for us, we can't move away!
As a Canadian I am embarrassed by this guy.
