ive said in the the previous mayoral candidate thread, rob ford is truly one hell of a guy.
and as i said in the previous thread i personally know the guy (he was my coach on our highschool football team which he funded) imagine that... someone sees a school in a very rough neighbourhood, what does he do? spends thousands and thousands of dollars on football equipment so kids since 2003 and onward could play football.
hes always mentioned during practices and team meetings he himself came up through a rough neigbourhood and grew up with a lot of family issues. but he overcame those and taught everyone on our team some valuable life lessons. hes a great mentor. hes mentioned hundreds of times he dreams of becoming prime minister of canada.
now i havnt seen him in around 5 years but i heard that program is doing very well and 2-3 years ago they were one win away from winning the metro bowl.
my opinion might sound a little biased, but im taking the stand of what this guy could do for our city. and if his spending budget of zero dollars is his really small way of putting dollars back into tax payers pockets and noone else on council can do that. hes watching over a lot of people out there.
hands his number out to everybody in his ward and sometimes even outside of his ward. hes even told us (players) that if were ever ever in trouble with the law school parents what ever to give him a call at any time of the night.
from what swung around the grape vine he picked up a student that was stuck all the way in barrie....... at 2 in the morning...
sooo.. i can imagine mayor david miller would never do that for somebody even one of his friends.
but rob ford did it for a student..
hes got my vote
