Full Pundit: Rob Ford — 300 pounds of sad

Requiem for a Heavyweight: we are far from the denouement of the Rob Ford saga. The forces that brought him to power in City Hall: suburban alienation, general resentment at the profligacy of the Miller years (on the back of City of Toronto tax payers), and a bully pulpit via mass media have not disappeared. Here’s hoping that the city can move forward with mature reasoned leadership after this which balances a vision of urban and suburban renewal with a respect for fiscal sustainability.
