Toronto mayor, Rob Ford has been getting a lot of airplay. Many American news shows and late night television programs have led with his latest rant where he talks about murdering someone. His defence is that he was in a drunken stupor when he said these things and didn't mean it.
Here is a story published in Canada's National Post this summer about an actual murder, the mayor and his picture buddies:
I would sure like to know the whole context of this most recent video clip. He's smoked crack and made homicidal threats while super intoxicated. What else has he done?
Rob Ford is a very flawed mayor and person. He needs to go. Not a good Canadian story.
