“O Canada”

For all of my Canadian friends this post is for you. Few times are we blessed with a “Rock Star” of comedy Gold. Most of the time in fact 99% of the time you are talking about someone in office down in the states. Well this time we get to talk about someone up north. That man Rob Ford gives us a lot to talk about.

Robert The Bruce “Rob” Ford is that Rock Star. He is the 64th and current Mayor of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Ford was elected mayor in the 2010 mayoral election, and took office on December 1 of that year.

Ford served three terms as city councillor from 2000 until October 2010, representing the ward of Ward 2 Etobicoke North. During his term as councillor, Ford was a strong critic of councillors’ spending.

Ford was elected mayor with 383,501 votes (47%) over George Smitherman’s 289,832 (35.6%) and Joe Pantalone with 95,482 (11.7%). The voter turnout was around 52% of registered voters, the highest in Toronto’s post-amalgamation history. Ford’s 11% margin of victory was the largest for any incoming mayor in post-amalgamation history.

Kiss Rob

Ford’s mayoralty campaign had seen a polarization of the media, and this continued on into his mayoralty. However always Toronto first.
