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?

The only legacy that this buffoon has is that it is now more acceptable to hold office and disgrace yourself without moral sanction than before - six years ago. The opinion that office holders can be degenerate arseholes,as long as they do it in their spare time, is now mainstream theology.
Bang on, Mound
It galls me to watch the beatification of St. Frod (Fraud). Any mention of the man's gross shortcomings as a human being delicately touch on his "private battles" (read bacchanalic indulgences) with drugs and alcohol, but no mention is made of his racism, bigotry, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, thuggish bullying, tendency towards violence, crass ignorance and low brow utterings and behaviour which are not only a matter of public record but are also reflected in some of the policies adopted and made law by Toronto City Council. It's a good thing that Toronto didn't have to endure another four or five years of his oafish, neo-con assclownery as mayor. I only hope that Doug - or any other member of that clan - can be kept away from the levers of power at any level of government. Toronto, Ontario, and Canada deserve far better...
.. sad .. true .. Amen ..
What ThinkingManNeil said !!! The only sad people should be his family (not sure about his wife), And comedians!
His legacy is revealing how vapid the neocon mind is.
Ford was a disaster . . . period. Let's not try to fool ourselves.
