    A new character for the "Trailer Park Boys"

    http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/11/07/21352338-toronto-mayor-rob-ford-makes-death-threat-in-new-video [Broken]

    What is the process in Canada to force someone out of office that's a total embarrasment, is there a recall process?

    I heard this addressed in a story on the radio. Turns out, it's not easy at all to recall an elected official. So it could be the citizens of Toronto won't have a say until next election.

    Quite the colorful guy, isn't he?

    Here's a link -

    At his current rate of indulgence he won't make it to the next election. Maybe the city should sponser non-stop drinking parties in his office.

    As a mayor, how has he mismanaged the city of Toronto?
    The city is supposidly in better shape with him at the helm.

    I'm sure the trains are running on time too. :rofl:

    The man is out of control, needs rehab more than Marion Berry did when he got busted and is a walking time-bomb that a rat would kick out of his hole in the ground.

    NSFW language:
    I sure he only had a couple of drinks.

    All the poor guy needs is; rehab at a nice resort, he should attend anger management seminars (lots of them), lastly he should perhaps join the nice folks at Weight Watchers.:devil:

    There are exactly ZERO laws to remove him from City Hall should he want to stay there until the next election.

    That being said, Council can vote to restrict his rights as a mayor and essentially leave him powerless, but it's a slow process as they do it one right at a time.

    Right now when Rob is in City Hall, all the council members just turn their swivel chairs away from him and ignore him while he talks.

    This is actually very true, a few years ago (when he was a city Councillor not the Mayor) a radio station called all of the city Councillors to report a pot-hole in their district. Only three of the Councillors returned the call (one of them being Rob Ford) and Ford was the only one who actually went out to see the pot-hole for himself.

    He actually does do a decent job running a city and is a better than average politician, he just likes to smoke a little crack from time to time.

    This should be a fun to watch election.

    I guess he is officially a undesirable in the States now.

    It's about time.

    A sad end to this story, much too young. RIP
