The most controversial Mayor in Canadian history. In one day’s time Rob Ford’s brother calls for the police chief to step down, then the video emerges with proof positive the mayor is smoking crack with two of Toronto’s top drug thugs (one of whom has since been shot and killed). Next Ford calls a press conference but instead of resigning he says he’s going to stay on and run in the next election. I’m not sure what’s coming down the pipe for Rob Ford but this has to be one of the craziest days in municipal history, anywhere on the planet. You can’t write stuff like this unless you are Dostoyevsky and if he were alive he would say “what happened to ‘Crime and Punishment?”
