i'm not suprised he didn't last long. him, his brother and their best buddy malmolliti roll like school yard bullies. few shining examples of how he and friends operate.

-On April 15, 2006, Ford (a sitting councillor at the time) attended a Maple Leafs hockey game at the Air Canada Centre. Visibly intoxicated and belligerent, he began to insult a couple seated behind him, who were visiting from out of town. Two security guards escorted Ford out of the building. When confronted about the episode three days later by a National Post reporter, Ford initially denied having been at the game. He later told the Toronto Star: "This is unbelievable, I wasn't even at the game, so someone's trying to do a real hatchet job on me, let me tell you", but later on said: "I reflected on it last night, and talked to my family. I came forward and admitted it. That's all I can do. I mean, I'm not perfect," said Ford.

-Mayor Ford was the focus of further controversy when, according to a report in the Toronto Star, he "personally asked city officials to approve drainage and road repairs outside his family company’s building before its 50th anniversary party in August 2012."[108]

-The Ombudsman for the City of Toronto, Fiona Crean, published a report in September 2012 suggesting that Mayor Ford's office had “compromised” the civic appointments process for city boards and agencies. [109] The Ombudsman and the existence of the position itself were later criticized by Ford and became the subject of further debate. Mayor Ford said he wanted to eliminate three watchdog positions: that of the Ombudsman, the Integrity Commissioner and the lobbyist registrar. [110]
