In some ways yes, however, in other ways he is taking credit for stuff he had nothing to do with, in fact, he took credit for the cities' recent 250 mill. surplus, despite the fact that the bulk of that surplus was generated from a real estate fee implemented by the previous administration that was at the top of his list to eliminate as soon as he was elected.

Well, that's the story he's selling. There are more than one fiscal conservative on Toronto city council. I find it hard to believe he is the best, or even capable of leading the charge. He certainly is good at saying BILLIONS!!

The Star had a good breakdown of the claimed vs actual savings. He has pushed the city in a more responsible fiscal direction, but there will be a lot of fallout from his time as mayor.

I hope for Toronto's sake that John Tory decides to run for mayor.


Agree on the first point.

The Star is a poor source where politics are concerned. They basically gave McGinty a free pass on anything he did when he was premier yet were trying to undermine Ford from the moment he became mayor. Everyone knows where the Stars politics are aligned.

John Tory would be a better choice, but has stuck his foot in his mouth, big time, in the past.

Last Tuesday, somewhere in America, the first Whig in 156 years was elected to office. Now you guys want to elect a Tory?

Ford's latest quote is better than I could have ever dreamed we'd catch a person in public office saying during a live media conference. It's like he hired Seth Macfarlane to be his speech writer.

Even after removing the objectionable word in respect for the Axiom board keepers, I'll still put in a spoiler button with a warning it's offensive language. Still, it's just so completely unbelievable. He's either completely lost it or he's looking to publish later.

One has to admit that it was an awesome response to the question. At least he didn't call her a skank.

I'm sniffin' a reality show coming his way.

Yeah, the Star has a bias. That does not make their numbers wrong. It is funny to see how the Star seems to choke on any admission that Ford (or more correctly the Ford administration) actually has made some progress.

Bob, it's already a reality show and I bet more people around the world tune in every night for the next episode than any other Canadian show.

I can't wait to see how he tops his most recent performance. The man has talent.

The other night, I was about to take the first bite of hot pizza and thought, "Ooh don't burn the roof of your mouth!"

At that very moment I realized that it is NOT the roof of my mouth, it is the ceiling of my mouth. How could we have gotten that so wrong for so long?

Wouldn't one have to suck the pizza through one's nose to hit the "roof" of one's mouth? Ew!
