An Aftermath Isn't a Legacy.
All this talk about Rob Ford's "legacy." What nonsense. Who exactly is carrying on Rob Ford's work, his life's mission? What's he remembered for other than providing endless fodder for American late night talk show comedy routines? A legacy is something carried on. An aftermath is rubble cleared so that people can get back to their lives.
Let's put it this way. If Rob Ford had not been an inebriate what lasting mark would he have left on Toronto, much less his province or our nation? None. He would be consigned to the memory hole of obscurity, forgotten.
He's dead, his remains will be suitably disposed of, life will go on, untouched, without him. How about we focus on something that's relevant?
