Rob Ford at his victory party in 2010, after being elected mayor.



Toronto has had a very exciting 24 hours. Last night, our Canadian football team won the Grey Cup. This morning, we fired our 64th mayor: Rob Ford. Over here at the VICE Toronto office, we fell in love with this amiable, clumsy, fat drunk guy early on. It was love at first laugh, after he chased a reporter out of City Hall for calling him a "fat ****." We understand that this is the same guy who was arrested for a DUI in Florida while he was riding dirty with a bag of weed, and yes, ol' Rob may or may not have threatened to kidnap his own children, but he was our kidnapping, reckless driving, weed loving mayor.



Inevitably, Rob's downfall came from his one tragic flaw: a love of high school football. Yes, Rob coached a high school football team in Etobicoke called the Don Bosco Eagles, and those little ****ers took Rob down. All the trouble really started when Rob was a city councillor. Back then, he was writing letters asking for donations to the Don Bosco Eagles using "official letterhead and other city resources," which caused some people over at City Hall to find this swinging of City Council dick to be a massive conflict of interest. Later on, when he was mayor, he personally voted against the motion for Rob to repay the donors and give them their dirty football money back.



When Rob was on trial to defend his solicitation of football donations, the prosecution argued that ol' Ford was "willfully ignorant" of breaking Toronto's Conflict of Interest Act. Despite all the haters, Rob Ford continued to use his special powers to make things easier on Etobicoke's finest high school football players. Earlier this month, two Toronto Transit buses were emptied so that they could go and pick up Rob's football team. Rob claims it was all a misunderstanding. He said that the buses were diverted to stop a fight between the two teams playing that day, a fight that Rob blamed on the opposing team's coach, and honestly, we believe him entirely.





Rob Ford exhibiting his sweet moves on the gridiron.



The best part about Rob's storied reign as Toronto's supreme ruler, is that the laughs just didn't seem to ever want to stop. Remember when he had to pee at a CFL game and accidentally walked into the Calgary Stampeders' locker room at half-time? Presumably drunk as ****? Or how about this past summer, after the horrifyingly tragic shooting on Danzig St. in Scarborough, when Rob ordered the deportation of "white, pink, or purple" people?



We'll always remember Rob Ford as a man of the people, who always had time for his loyal subjects. One very lucky mother and daughter got to see Rob in person, while he was obviously on an important call pertaining to official city business, as he was talking on his cell phone and driving. The mother, a concerned citizen, warned the mayor of the dangers of driving while talking on a cell phone. Rob, understandably bothered, flipped off the nosey woman who was driving with her six year old daughter. He had to teach that mother and daughter a hard lesson about Rob's personal immunity to safe driving laws, and we're sure they're better off for it.



Another snoopy citizen spotted Rob Ford reading while he was driving. This concerned stick-in-the-mud tweeted a photo of Rob watching his paperwork instead of the road, and it caused a bit of a stir. Rob Ford calmly explained to the press that he was "probably busy" and fully admitted to reading and driving. When else is the guy gonna read? He's only going to be on the can for so many hours in a day.





Robbie reading in the whip.



Tough love driving lessons aside, Rob was always looking out for the well being of Toronto's citizens. Six months before he was elected mayor, Rob suggested that one of his constituents, a guy named Dieter who was complaining about health problems, "score" some OxyContin "on the street." Rob claims he was just trying to get out of an awkward phone conversation by suggesting that Dieter should go and buy some drugs illegally, to help fix Dieter's chronic pain. Perfectly understandable behaviour for a mayoral candidate.



Not only did he care for Toronto's citizens on a personal level, he was a strong proponent of health and wellness for the public good. This summer, Rob Ford started a "Cut the Waist" program where he vowed to lose 50 pounds. Instead, he lost 17 pounds, fell off his scale, and canceled the program.





Rob Ford, pointlessly trying to shed a few extra pounds.



Even though he sucked at losing weight, it didn't matter to us, especially because Rob Ford absolutely adores the media. So much so that he tried to get into some playful fisticuffs with a Toronto Star reporter who was on assignment, checking out a plot of land near Rob's house that Rob intended to buy from the City. Sadly, the reporter was not in on Rob's joke, as he said "just don't hit me" as the mayor approached him. The reporter claims that: “At some point, [Rob] charged with a fist cocked at his head as if he wanted to punch me," but that just sounds like hearsay to us.



Then there was the time that Marg Delahunty from the Canadian political satire television institution "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" showed up at Rob's house unannounced to surprise Rob and film a segment for the show. Totally playing along, as the devoted lover of modern performance comedy that he is, Rob told the media he felt "ambushed" and called 911. In 100 years from now, Rob will be viewed as the Andy Kaufman of Canadian municipal politics.



So there you have it, Rob Ford's legacy was highly eventful. Unfortunately, it was foiled by the complicated needs of a high school football team, like precisely zero other Canadian politicians before him. The judge has allowed Rob to stay in office for the next 14 days, at which point our deputy mayor Doug Holyday will probably take over office. Rob has even been told that he can run for mayor in the next election, which would certainly result in an extremely entertaining campaign. Hopefully with time, the people of the city will realize what a splendid and special leader we once had.

not once in that article did it mention anything he did in office like removing taxes, or what he actually does for constituents within Toronto.

It mentions "LOL FAT ROB FORD READING WHILE DRIVING LOL HES BETTER THEN ALL OF US"

He drives himself, because a driver (which every mayor in toronto has had for the past 28 years costs 58,000K a year and he doesnt want to waste your tax dollars)

but of course your Liberal media fails to mention that.

Dont worry all of you Rob Ford haters will have your reign again, with a Boy Scout looking elitist mentality Dalton Mcguinty esque mayor.

Funny Dalton Mcguinty one of the biggest crooks of our generation and he hardly ever hits the headlines. But when it comes to superficial Toronto where image and status is anything and everything. He gets punted out of office for having DONATATION indescrepancies.


your kids will read about Rob Ford and have one thing stick out in their head.

"If I become Mayor, Dont donate or give any assistance personally to charities as it could ruin my political career"

Sad,sad day in Toronto.

Really, like what taxes? Where exactly are us Torontonians saving in tax dollars?

You realize, for every tax that is cut, a program has to be cut too to make up for it?

Quote:

Is he above the law? Did Rob Ford come out and oppose the new tough on driving laws in Ontario?? No he didn't. Therefore he should obey them. He is in office after all. It might not be HIS law, but he's a politician and I don't see him actively fighting it.

Quote:

A driver costs the city $58,000.. But that is one more person employed, who is likely to spend that money in the same community buy goods and services. That means more people need to be hired by corporations to service these people. The more people we have working, rather than be on welfare, the better off we are.

Quote:

Die hard conservative over here. You're 23-25 and you hate liberals? That's pretty ironic. The same government that is keeping you from getting gainful employment doing something useful with your life, is the same govenrment you support? How does that make any sense.

The same conservative government that cuts taxes for the rich and the corporations, and yet, they siphon that money out to China. Ya, great.

You don't get it. He was kicked out because the people he told to have donate were people LOBBYING the government. Because when council voted for it, HE ALSO VOTED FOR IT.

That's like being put on trial and having a voice in the jury. That's not wrong in your eyes?

No, I think my kids will be educated enough to realize that telling people who are LOBBYING the government, to donate, is retarded

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]

aspen540 Please tell me what those three positions do for our city... you think that those positions are essential for this cities survival please.

in your words and not citied from wikipedia tell me what they do.

because I have no idea what they do. I know what an Engineer does, a Councillor does, a mayor, an administrative assistant, a cop.

because what you said there is Fiona Crean (our Ombudsman) had enough time to publish a report on what Rob Ford thought we should remove her Job.

Im pretty sure if her services were essential, she wouldn't need to defend her job.... She knows she gets paid a bucket full of cash for doing EFF ALL!!!

Rob Ford at the hockey game? I have no defense. dumb move on his part. Im happy he is not a genius though because if he did try to steal for his own good he would easily get caught.



And the personally approved drainage and road repairs. that same party the entire city was invited too, technically speaking. Doesnt the city have a obligation to ensure safety for the entire city?

why make road repairs before gay pride or carnival?

Except that even a masterfully crafted essay peice would leave you confused.

I've seen it before, not just in you, but in the majority. Things need to be talked about with the likes of you, piece by piece. Why? Because you get side tracked in the paragraphs complexity.

So, troll or not, it's the only way for the point to come accross.

like your talking about provincial government and federal and provincial funding. which has absolutely nothing to do what Rob Ford can do with the resources he has.

like its pathetic that your quoting what Rob Ford is saying rather than looking at what he is accomplishing... As a mayor. Not as a talk show host.
Not going to engage into ball fliping argument, but the reality is that Toronto is way behind on everything a part from housing market.
