No hero, he's in over his head and governs in a pig headed and unhelpful way. I wouldn't vote for the guy. That said, what he did wasn't that bad or in any malicious, he just made stupid mistakes because he didn't bother to read the rules governing his job. I don't think what he did warrants getting thrown out of office and I'm less than pleased with this verdict, I really thought a slap on the wrist would be a much more appropriate punishment for what he did.

One un-elected official sitting in judgement..boots out the Mayor of Canada's biggest city? One super high end lawyer who represents liberality nails the mayor to a cross...also an un- elected official. This is the subversion democracy. Ford gets the crap kicked out of him for taking care of under privileged black kids through his private charity - a foot ball team....meanwhile liberals talk about helping the under privileged kids but do nothing of relevance.

I guess the gay ghetto will be in high celebration tonight...along with all those parasitic bicycle riding carrot eaters. Something is going on federally as far as the city states of Montreal and Toronto are concerned...Montreal just ousted a mayor also...who knows..maybe submissive vegan liberals are the tools of federal conservatives?

Well, the mayor of Montreal had it coming at least, he really was a corrupt little putz and everyone in Montreal is glad to finally be routing out the corruption no election could have fixed. We'll aggressively cut out that rot and regain some of our past glory! Rob Ford isn't a mafia stooge like him, Ford was democratically elected and I'd only want to see him removed from office the right way, through a free and fair election where people are voting for a better candidate. He was legitimately elected and has been trying to do that best he can, even if he's not always up to the challenge. The people of Toronto should just have to live with him, this ruling stinks to me.

Nixon won the 1972 presidential election in a much bigger landslide than Ford did in the last mayoral election. Do you think he should have been allowed to finish his term as well?

The courts from what I see have been incrementally taken over by so-called liberals. It used to be that the most powerful judges and lawyers in Toronto were part of the conservative establishment. This ousting of Ford reminds me more of a liberal mob hit than a legitimate legal ruling. You are correct - Ford is not a mafia stooge..but you have to remember- for all intent and purpose...a liberal mafia has formed in Toronto...Now Clayton Ruby has always resented the conservative elite that were in control...They were anglos and he is Jewish..He always played second fiddle to the big old school boys. It is a similar situation to what happened to Conrad Black who was quietly and skillfully betrayed by his lawyer Greenspan...It used to be that all the Jewish power mongers were to the east of Bay Street...over along Spadina and Bathurst Street..

Slowly the anglo elite have aged and are being displaced.. Ford represents what is left of the old school anglos..between Jewish socialist - the gay lobby....and leftist judges...and the bike lane activists...it seems that Ford got swarmed...Liberalism in Toronto is highly organized and slowly taking on more of a privileged attitude bordering on mafia style criminality....Look at McGinty...He has been handing over billions to his friends..in the form of contracts that are breached and then settled in court where the contractors collect damages for doing nothing- Liberals don't know it yet but they are were Montreal was 30 years ago..This is the beginning of the moral decline of Toronto...To persecute a man for being benevolent to the underprivileged is obscene.

Not a case of liking the big oaf, but he is better than the alternative...Smitherman was not much of a choice...an openly aggressive gay guy who liked to snort coke and party it up with the boys ...The immigrant population of Toronto was not big on the whole gay thing..Ford found the gay culture unpleasant..as do many of us in Toronto..They try to force us to like things we don't like. At least Ford was honest about what he thought. Now we are going to have to deal with shifty hedonist lefties who will keep their agendas secret...It's a dark day for normal families in Toronto...we just suffered a coup and now...we who were the "normal" folks of TO...will in time suffer the spite and persecution of the creeps and bi-sexual hipsters and greedy leftists who desperately want to displace rich conservatives with a rich socialist elite-Ironic...

Yup it was a Jewish lawyer and liberal mafia that took down Ford, a good white gentile. It's not as if he brought it upon himself or anything.
