Christie Blatchford: 383,501 Torontonians voted for Rob Ford — not one voted for the men behind his ouster
"So, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been given the boot from office because an opportunistic citizen hired a smart and politically savvy lawyer who found a club of an arcane statute with which to tie the hands of a judge who was willing to play ball.
That’s the short and dirty version of the bombshell that has dropped."
It is said that a stay is almost certain to be granted, meaning it's very likely that Ford will finish out his term of office while the appeal wends its way through the court system. I hope it also means he will be allowed to run for a second term. I will absolutely vote for him again again and again.
