Has Rob Ford been exonerated?

“Certainly it sounds like he’s been cleared for now,” says Anthony Moustacalis, president of the Criminal Lawyers Association and a former Crown attorney in Toronto.

“But the Toronto Police Service say they’re continuing the investigation, so one never knows.”

Moustacalis said it appears as if the same evidence, presented to both agencies, is being interpreted differently, and that it’s possible “the OPP disagrees with the theory of the Toronto police force.”

But Sergeant Pierre Chamberland, a spokesman for the Ontario Provincial Police, would not comment on the mayor’s claims that he had been exonerated, saying that no new information or evidence had emerged in the Project Brazen 2 probe.

“Therefore because there is nothing for us to follow up on, because all of the matters are currently before the courts in regards to this case, there is nothing for us to do until the courts make their decision,” Sgt. Chamberlain told CP24. Asked directly if the OPP has cleared Mayor Ford, the sergeant reverted back to the line that no new information has been provided.

If I was Rob I don't think I'd let my guard down. I would take for granted that the only reason the heat is off is that they've run into a bureaucratic glitch, which is very temporary and perhaps he should have a tooth brush and razor packed for a stay at a judicial establishment. L.O.L. (That could preclude him from being a future mayor) -

I didn't think a hospital is a "judicial" establishment and I don't think a stay there precludes one from being mayor. -


P.S.
I suppose it could be a hospital under guard. -

Actually, the outcome of the election in T. O. has no effect on me 500 miles away, except for the comedic effect of watching some folks get their panties in a twist....should he win....

Maybe we also have to start being realistic and realize that young Robbie has been a naughty little fellow. -

Rob Ford has done more damage to the reputation of his city than has done
good. It should be pointed out everything Ford has done has not been bad.
The problem is the amount ignorance and lack of adult behavior has done a
hell of a lot of Not So Good.
People in public life can't behave in the manner he has and expect to have
respect. He has behaved like a child and adults especially those in public life
can't take him seriously. Oh there are people who say behavior doesn't count
but they are not the majority of people. Will Ford win the next election? Depends,
are there enough people out there who view the world from a classless point of
view? Guess we'll see.

You're giving wayyyyyy too much credit to us here dude.

We don't even have a mass transit link to our island airport or international airport, never mind having it to the downtown core where you want tourists and visitors to go maybe. But you might be thinking that old yarn about toronto being a 'world class' city.

hahahahaha...

'reputation'.

for what anyway?




anyway, when we're on par with New York, London, Paris, Munich, we'll all have a laff and sing pop muzik.

reputation...

Well Grump , classless or not if I lived in Toronto the decision to vote for Rob Ford or
Olivia Chow and the entitlements and tax increases that come with her ,I am sure I would choose Ford .
But then I vote with my wallet not my emotions .

You hit the nail on the head! He tends to be likeable, but hey, we're talking the mayor of 3 million people!

And compaired to Chow, he would get my vote because of his job as mayor ... his personal life is just that. Not something I think he should be proud of but not reason to not vote for him.

What do you expect from me? You think I will be sad that only one police force is investigating him instead of two?

I certainly hope he gets his comeuppance someway, but if you read through my posts about the guy, my opinions on him have never been based on if he can be criminally charged for what he has done or not. I have actually stated numerous times that I hate how much people focus on that.

"I have not been arrested yet so I have done nothing wrong" is not the standard that anyone should live their life to, much less an elected official.

I tend to agree with you, but for one of two little minor details....................when you are mayor of a place like Toronto you are often in situations where you are trying to curry favour and may have to be convincing - trying to negotiate deals involving $millions and in the middle of something like this you don't want to find yourself being accosted by a couple of chaps with yellow stripes down their legs carrying hand cuffs! -

Yeah, now that I think of it there may be some validity to that little point!

Well, I have to admit I think Ford could be better trusted with handling the public purse. J.M.H.O.

I don't love Chow, but Ford's "fiscally conservative" brain seems to fly out the window when it comes to transit. I have to pay more money for the next 30 years for a subway extension that could have been achieved with no tax increase at all. He wants to spend billions more, and undoubtedly raise my taxes even more, to fund a subway on Sheppard, a move that makes no logical sense other than to buy votes.

Nobody takes on the small stuff like Ford, but the big picture stuff is a joke. I don't love seeing a counselor spend 10k on a party for himself, but I won't be paying for that for the rest of my working life like I will be for Fords subways for votes plan.

I feel your pain...we're getting new rapid transit... yup



the above are our proud bunch

for about 818 million dollars you can ride a train across town two minutes faster than the bus will get you there...it going to just make our community boom

along with a fast ride, for the 818 million we will get the following benefits
  • frequent service ;
  • limited stops ;
  • pre-boarding fares ;
  • signal priority ;
  • queue jumping ;
  • bus by-pass shoulders ;
  • bicycle and pedestrian amenities ; and
  • passenger information systems.
I'm so excited...I can hardly wait for my taxes to quadruple.

More proof of what I've said before--the only ones supporting Rob Ford now are the ones who just enjoy watching it all burn.

Alcoholic crack addicts can never be exonerated of anything they are forever tarnished and pushed to the margins of society.
