What's this about the mayor and his brother getting their own TV show? Unbelievable really. I was channel surfing yesterday and he was the topic of conversation on BBC and some day shows and today there was coverage on CNN. I heard even SNL is going to be doing skits on him.

My prediction is that he will crash and burn. I mean the guy is obviously in very poor health. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a heart attack.

It is on the Sun News network. No one watches it anyway. They used to have a radio show on Sundays but the station just fired them.

On Wednesday, council overwhelmingly passed Minnan-Wong's motion asking Ford to take a leave.
Council will hold special meetings today and Monday to try to strip Ford of his mayoral powers and hand them to the deputy mayor in what another councillor called an attempted coup.
Premier Kathleen Wynne said she would consult opposition parties before deciding whether to intervene if council made it clear it could not function as a result of the Ford scandal.

I don't know about you, but I'm sick of hearing about stupid Mayor Ford and his equally stupid brother - media whores the pair of them!

I don't think they are choosing most of the media coverage they are getting these days. That statement would more appropriately be applied to the other non-Ford members of council. ie. Minnan-Wong for example.

I do not reside in Toronto, so have no dog in that fight. The majority of that whole council has been a joke even before Ford was in office. It's easy to look good, when you stand next to someone who has behaved in such a less than good way.

I also don't agree with talks of a non-elected "premier" stepping in, and interferring (possibly) with an elected official. I'm not defending Ford...but that sets up a horrible precedent.

Yeah...I'm in South California and saw the news on a local TV station.
