Helping Rob Ford Make the Decision to Get Help.


Mayor ford with bobblehead

As we have seen today, Rob Ford still doesn’t see that he has done anything wrong and is not going to go easy, and being a stubborn man if he has his way he is not going anywhere. Last week I wrote that Ford’s supporters are not doing him any good continuing to give him their support that will bolster his confidence to continue as Mayor, without first seeking help. It seems that is exactly what happened with the uptick in the polls has done. So  he is going to have to get shoved over the cliff.

So, the question is “How many protesters will it take carrying posters in front of City Hall before  Ford knows that getting help is what Torontonians want him to do?”

The long shot would be for the rest of Council to set up a mock election, where voters are encouraged to to vote for Rob Ford for Mayor, or to vote to have the Mayor to step aside. Unfortunately, in this case, the Mayor will be forcing Council to publicly spank him. Ford is banking on the Province staying out of Toronto’s business.

The other out-of-the-box suggestion is for the Rest of Council to force the hand of the Province to act. If the rest of Council would refuse to hold Council meetings the Province would be forced to act and do something. The way I see it nothing else is going to force the hand of the reluctant Province from acting, or to dissuade the Mayor from his present course of defiance.

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen

    The Rob Ford is a stupid distraction. There was an obscure comment (something like): it’s Rob’s turn now… you’ll get yours later…. it was in the context of a mafia connection. Every time his image appears, the channel gets turned off!!!! Let the mafia help Rob Ford. Date: Thu, 14 Nov 2013 06:41:28 +0000 To: mlstathers@live.ca
