I must admit I was distracted this morning while writing my NDP debate stories from last night, because of the live reports from Mayor Rob Ford’s legal appeal in Toronto.
As it turns out, he has won his appeal and therefore is going to remain in office as mayor of Toronto. Hopefully, this will be the end of this absolute sideshow that has been a total distraction in Toronto, and maybe the focus at City Hall there can turn now to solving all the rest of the problems that city faces.
I highly doubt this will be the end of Ford’s fights with his opponents, though. This legal mess was simply one battle in the long-drawn-out political war going on in municipal politics in Toronto.
