We find out tomorrow if Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford, still has a job. Well, as mayor at least. He’ll always have a job as a football coach, which has been his full time gig even before he accepted the part time position of mayor. Ahem. And he could always go back to the family firm, where I’m sure he has an office with all the sharp things removed. But tomorrow, a court will decide if he wins his appeal to get back into office. It’s so far past a joke in this city, I’m not sure that it even matters any more.
But enough about Ford. Today’s blog is brought to you by Councillor George Mammoliti. Once part of Ford’s ‘inner circle’ (jeesuz; the mayor’s office is like a little cadre of mean girls, no?), he stopped sitting at their lunch table a few months back. Because nothing the man does has ever made a lick of sense, nobody gave a damn then, nor do they now. But today’s Star brings you this fabulous quote from Mammoliti: (please start humming that scary theme music here, like, dum, dum, dummmmmmmmmmmm)
“There is an investigation going on in my office and it seems there are some people in this city that have targeted certain individuals and have planned to do a number of things over the next little while.”
Here. You hold my cloak while I go get my dagger. I loooooooooove this quote. I do. I love that the leaders of the biggest city in Canada, you know, the centre of the universe, are this bunch.
