Winner would give loser a CD—but no beer.

You may already be aware that that Toronto Raptors are currently doing pretty well. Sure, they’re one game down to the Brooklyn Nets in their first-round playoff matchup, but they are, after all, in the playoffs—and that’s an accomplishment any Toronto sports fan can appreciate. On April 19, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams suggested that […]

“I Won’t Back Down,” Ford Pledges at Campaign Launch

Posted April 18, 2014 by Desmond Cole

Last night, Toronto’s embattled mayor launched his re-election bid surrounded by hundreds of supporters.

Mayor Rob Ford officially launched his re-election campaign last night with a promise to keep taxes low and to fight for accountability at Toronto City Hall. In a speech that lasted almost half an hour, Ford repeated his widely disputed claim of having saved taxpayers a billion dollars, and assured supporters he would find more […]

Rob Ford: Why does the term “white trash” keep coming to mind?

Posted April 10, 2014 by Allan W Janssen

The more I hear about Rob Ford, the more the term “white trash” comes to mind! One of the first members of Rob Ford’s campaign team is the co-host of an online marijuana show, High F—ers, in which he smokes joints until he vomits, tells profane stories while high, and dedicates his drug use to […]

The Top 5 Reasons Soccerworld Is Nothing Like Rob Ford

Posted April 9, 2014 by bigcitylib

So T.O. mayoral candidate Rob Ford is giving a presser at Soccerworld today.  But somebody there is not a fan:

Mayor Ford’s presser is with Soccerworld Toronto. But not everyone at Soccerworld is a fan of Mayor Ford’s: http://t.co/xQa4IXRp4X
— Ann Hui (@annhui) April 9, 2014

Soccerworld PR person says blog post does not represent the company’s stance on Mayor Ford. Says company supports and invited him #topoli
— Ann Hui (@annhui) April 9, 2014

Now, if you click through the link you will see that Soccerworld has disappeared the original post.

They didn’t erease the Google Cache version, however.  It can still be found here.  And, for your reading pleasure, an excerpt:


So, here’s the top 5 reasons Soccerworld is nothing like Rob Ford…


We love exercise:
At Soccerworld, we’re all about getting together with friends and enjoying some exercise. At city hall, Rob Ford is all about getting together with shady individuals to smash crack rocks. To each his own.

We’re reliable:
At Soccerworld, we consistently strive to deliver the best customer experience possible. At City Hall, Rob Ford tramples elderly women while reminding the world that he is extremely satisfied on the home front. Different strokes for different folks.

We like the people in our office:
At Soccerworld, we enjoy having people come to our facility to play and watch soccer games. At City Hall, Rob Ford wants all the major media outlets to jump off a bridge and disappear. If only they knew how to ask the right questions…

We don’t defy science like Rob Ford:
Rob Ford has done a lot of crazy things recently, but there’s one thing that is truly shocking – and it defies the laws of science. Rob Ford is over-weight…and he smokes crack. That doesn’t happen! I defy you to find another human who fits that criteria. As a gesture of goodwill, Rob Ford needs to submit his body to science when he dies. It may or may not contain the answers to all of life’s mysteries.

You knew it was coming… we don’t smoke crack:
Seriously, we don’t. This isn’t a situation where we’ll deny it repeatedly and then admit to it in five months. Grab a beer? Sure. Glass of wine? Why not. Hit the crack pipe? Too much… way, way too much.

Honestly, we like to party as much as the next guy, but this is ridiculous. The city of Toronto is an eight billion dollar a year company. How can someone run a business of this magnitude while smoking crack? Crack smokers can’t hold onto the most basic of jobs. Why? Because they are too busy eating chocolate and looking for more crack. When you smoke crack, it’s priority A, B, and C (so we’ve heard). Yet somehow Rob Ford has risen to prominence in Canada’s most populated city. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s kind of impressive.

Earlier we mentioned that Rob Ford defies science. We have now come to realize that Rob Ford also defies social science.

Take a bow Mayor Ford, you are truly one of a kind.

Rob Ford and the Beast of The Great White North

Posted April 9, 2014 by Simon

Well his campaign isn’t doing too good lately. It’s a little wobbly like Rob Ford himself. 

Decent people don’t want anything to do with him. Or let their children anywhere near him. So now he’s holding ten thousand chocolate eggs.

And goodness knows what else. 


But at least he was able to add two new members to his sagging campaign. Ben Johnson, the disgraced runner.

As O-Town doesn’t really have a Mayoral race to speak of…
