The one time in his life he smokes crack, and it just so happens someone is pointing a video camera at him. Imagine the luck.

It's not the crack smoking and drinking issues that concern me as much as the hanging out with known criminals and protecting them. The substance abuse stuff suggests he has personal problems, but the other stuff is what really makes him unfit for any kind of office.

There is talk that something(s) worse is yet to come when the videos are finally revealed.

Will be interesting to see some fresh polls from the Ford Nation now.

Talk is that it is a sex tape, which would be extremely disturbing.

For it to be relevant, I would expect it to have been used in some form of extortion.

One thing I've learned from watching all the media, and particularily the local frenzy, is NEVER get caught smoking crack. If you are in the public eye.

Probably best just to never smoke crack.

LOL.

I can't help myself, having had my own struggles, to feel bad for this guy. Such a public spectacle. At least my fall from grace was anonymous/private.

In Alberta we had a pretty colorful Premier - Ralph Klein.

He turned out to be the best Premier Alberta ever had in my opinion. Yes it was embarrassing sometimes when he opened his mouth to speak but he did do excellent things for the Province that put it where it is today.

From what I have heard, Ford has done a good job managing the City. Didn't he just get some major funding for the subway expansion?

You have been reading Ford's self-promotion..

Ford didn't "get" anything. The transit funding has been in negotiation for years, long before Ford was elected. When Ford first took over as Mayor, he arbitrarily cancelled a signed provincial funding contract, because he didn't like it.

He tried to push a subway extention that would be financed by business investment instead. Except it turned out that no business wanted to finance it. So Toronto then had no transit funding. Ford refused any call to pay for a subway with taxes - which is how Toronto has funded subways for about 100 years.

Council bypassed Ford and reinstated the provincial funding. Ford and his supporters called them "backstabbers."

Negotiations have been ongoing between the province, the regional transit authority Metrolinx, and the city's TTC, as well as council. The idea that Ford "got" any funding is more than absurd, but he likes to say things like this because most people only read the headlines.

Ford likes to protray himself as a one-man band who does everything himself.
