They's likely call it helping a friend, most of the rest of us would call it conflict of interest.

Ford brothers helped business client lobby city for tax break - The Globe and Mail

Quote:

In the months after the mayor and Councillor Ford took office in 2010 they intervened for Apollo Health and Beauty Care, a soap and shampoo company that unsuccessfully urged City Manager Joe Pennachetti to hand it a generous property tax grant. Apollo’s proposal failed when Mr. Pennachetti refused to make an exception for the company, but a cache of e-mails, letters and memorandums obtained by The Globe under the Freedom of Information Act show a pattern of intervention by the Fords on Apollo’s behalf that extend to a variety of municipal issues, from stop-sign designations to building permits.

The Ford family’s business, Deco Labels and Tags Inc., has manufactured labels for Apollo, off and on, for about a dozen years, but this was not disclosed to six senior civil servants who detailed, in interviews, how the mayor and Councillor Ford inserted themselves into Apollo-related discussions.

“In terms of the mayor requesting I meet with a resident or a business, this is the case where I spent the most time of any,” said Mr. Pennachetti, referring to his meetings concerning Apollo’s efforts to secure a tax grant, and the Fords’ role in arranging those discussions.

Of course for a mayor who's basically been running rampant for the last four years and his councilman brother who has been torpedoing anyone trying to reign him in, this is pretty small potatoes.
