Leftists in Action: Municipal Edition

How many people out there trust politicians? Hmmmm it looks like not many do at all. It's a given I guess. Most of the people I talk to think all politicians lie, scheme, manipulate to get ahead or to line their own pockets. I know this is just a generalization. The trick to voting is trying to find the politician that is lieing the least, and doesn't look upon you as a rubber stamp for their election.

The Mayoral race here in Toronto has been rather interesting this year. You have the usual collection of leftists, socialists, and other freaks. There's one candidate that's fighting against the typical flow of council. Rob Ford is the current leader of the race. He's said some rather politically incorrect statements. He's fought the council on a number of issues. One being the councillors spending of their budgets. He's been attacked, slimed, smeared, and become the lefts recent boogey man.

Well it turns out that if (hopefully when) he's elected in November there are certain councilors that have a plan to declaw and remove his fangs.

Councillors take shots at 'Mayor Ford':

By DON PEAT, Toronto Sun

Some left-leaning Toronto city councillors weren’t pulling their punches when asked how they feel about the thought of Councillor Rob Ford becoming Toronto’s next mayor.

“In my opinion, if Mayor Ford is elected, city council will have a caucus meeting and they will choose their own mayor and (Ford) will be the mayor in name,” retiring Councillor Kyle Rae said Wednesday during the last city council meeting before the Oct. 25 vote.

“I hope that the citizens of Toronto wake up ... I can’t believe Toronto is prepared to do it.”

Rae stressed Ford has no track record of bringing items to council and getting them passed.

“All he has done is attack and vilify other members’ work, he has got nothing he can point to,” he said.

But would councillors really rebel against an elected mayor?

Rae — who Ford keeps slamming for holding a $12,000-taxpayer-funded goodbye party — says it is a real possibility.

“Most thinking people in Toronto would be so embarrassed by him being mayor that there would be an obligation on council to do something,” he said.

Councillor Howard Moscoe was a little more descriptive in how he sees a Mayor Ford interacting with council.

“He won’t be able to pass gas without the permission of council,” Moscoe said.

When asked if he thinks Ford will be able to work with council, he added: “Depends how often he wants to pass gas.”

Councillor Maria Augimeri said Rae may be right about council having to go rogue against a Mayor Ford.[snip]

Typical leftist thought process and procedure. Since they don't like what the Mayor will think, and if the PEOPLE of Toronto elect him, they will do what they must to minimize his power. So much for a democratic system. The council is willing to not listen to the people of Toronto.

Time to get a list of these councilors and start attacking them. Let's show them the true will of the people and replace these dinosaurs.

  1. The mayoral race here in Toronto has indeed been rather interesting this year. The entertainment value provided by this mayoral election is in stark contrast to the last time the sitting mayor wasn't running for re-election (2003), that's for sure. If I recall correctly, hardly anyone even knew/cared who the candidates were.
