  • 2014: Year in Preview

    We don’t know what will make headlines in 2014. After all, most political predictions are about as accurate as a Forum poll. So I won’t try to guess how 2014 plays out, but here are a few things we can reasonably expect to see this year: With the new electoral map coming into force, all […]

  • Persons of the Year

    Every December, I like to name a “Person of the Year” – the individual who left their mark on Canadian politics over the past year. The only rules are that the PM is too obvious a choice, and that lame picks (“You!”) are strictly verboten. The Person of the Year doesn’t need to be someone […]

  • Let he who is without sin…

    “You know what, I’m not perfect.. Maybe you are, but I’m not.” -Rob Ford Rob is right. We should all cut the guy some slack. After all, who among us hasn’t smoked crack and lied about it, been charged with drunk driving and lied about, continued to drive drunk after the fact, assaulted employees, purchased […]

  • Remember when the big Rob Ford controversy was that he talked on his cell phone while driving?

    Warning – very graphic language.

  • Great Moments in Scandal Management

    “Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine. But no, do I, am I an addict? No. Have I tried it? Probably in one of my drunken stupors.” -Rob Ford

  • The vast left-wing media conspiracy against Rob Ford grows

    Yes, the news is bad for the mayor, but c’mon, the Sun has always had it in for him…

  • As Easy As 1-2-3

    Something good happened at Toronto City Hall this week. I know, I know. I’m as surprised as you are. Councillors vote to seek end of ‘first past the post’ system in city elections Toronto city council took a significant step on Tuesday towards dramatically changing how the city elects its leaders — and who gets […]

  • Great Moments in Spin

    I can’t wait to see the tourism brochures: Toronto mayor Rob Ford is still dodging allegations that he smoked crack cocaine, but now he seems to think there’s a silver lining to the international attention brought upon his city by the scandal over his (alleged!) drug use: tourism dollars. At least that’s what Ford told […]

  • Cone of Silence

    Rob Ford and Stephen Harper are about as different as two politicians can be, but the one thing they have in common is an uncanny ability to brush off scandals before they stick. Harper entered the 2011 election facing a “controversy of the day” – from Bev Oda’s orange juice, to Bruce Carson’s fraud charges, […]

  • Goodbye

    Rob Ford is removed as Mayor of Toronto, and Mark Carney is flying across the pond to become Governor of the Bank of England. If any politician is looking to unload some bad news, today would be the perfect “take out the trash day“.
