He's become the Steve Fonyo of Canadian political life. It's sad. Mayor Ford deserves our sympathy and our pity, not our ridicule and certainly not our respect. The poor guy... He certainly sounds like he's on crack here - utterly wired. He does not have a shred of dignity left - none of the gravitas a mayor of a large city should have.
Look, I'm not trying to say I'm better than him. I share his problems with addictive drugs. I've smoked crack and done crazy things, been blackout drunk and behaved shamefully. The difference is that am not the leader of a city of two million people, and that I took the time to back off and get help.
