At today’s celebration of Remembrance Day in Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was one of the speakers. None of Kathleen Wynne’s gang of thieves showed up. When they announced that the Mayor will speak, a lone voice yelled “Shame!” and was quickly shushed by the people around him.
After the event, when Rob Ford had to walk the short distance from the Old City Hall to his office, the media turned the event into the usual circus. Surrounded by about 20 aggressive reporters and cameramen trying to ask him questions, Ford would’ve been crushed if it weren’t for his bodyguards. The fight to get the best shot was so intense, that one of the cameramen (I think from City TV) fell to the ground, knocked down by one of his fellow reporters. It was amazing that he banged his head on the concrete, but kept his camera high and out of harm.
During the walk there were plenty of people telling the Mayor that they support him. He acknowledged every one by saying “Thank you!” The whole time there was just one guy with dark complexion and an accent, who followed Ford yelling lines that he probably memorized beforehand.
They all were supposed to be wisecracks about Ford’s alleged drug provider and the pipe he used. The guy became so annoying, that finally the people around him told him to shut up. An elderly black veteran, decorated with many medals, flatly told him that today is Remembrance Day and he must show some respect.
That crowd followed Ford into the City Hall, where he met even more admirers from the veterans and the citizens, who came to mark Remembrance Day.
I wonder – where are those aggressive reporters when we have to deal with the billions of dollars stolen by Dalton McGuinty, Grand Lesbian Wynne and their henchmen (and henchwomen). Of course, you’ll never see them there – the downtown lobby will love them as long as they provide more bike lanes and Gay-Straight Alliances at schools.
I caught some of that commotion and posted it on YouTube. Yes, I ran with the media, but for different reasons. And I surely didn’t knock down the City TV cameraman. Here is the video:
