Not an Official Green Party Canada Site: Possibly the dumbest things Doug Ford ever did

When I first saw this article in the Toronto Star, I thought maybe it was a spoof, or somebodies wishful thinking. Apparently Doug Ford has lost the DVD’s that contained ALL their contact databases from the 2010 Mayoralty election.  Mitch Wexler had been hired to manage the data, and to do some supporter profiling to ...

Not an Official Green Party Canada Site: Rob Ford is in a good position to win the Mayoralty in October.

If I were a betting man, I would lay pretty stiff odds in favour of Rob Ford beating his challengers in the 2014 Toronto Mayoral election.

ROAR!: ‘City looks to protect home of former premier’ – Charlottetown, PEI

That was the article title in The Guardian today, in a piece written about a rezoning on my street. Only thing is …. this is the first mention I’ve heard about the City being hell bent on protecting a former premiers home. I’ve submitted a shorter version of the article that is to follow, and ...

Not an Official Green Party Canada Site: The Rob Ford Story: It ain’t over by a long shot.

A lot of  Torontonians are delighted, and celebrating the judgement that removed Rob Ford from the office of Mayor of Toronto. I have some bad news for them, Rob Ford will be permitted to run in a by-election, and he will win. Note that I am not qualifying my statement by saying he will probably ...
