QUOTED: Denzil Minnan-Wong offers Rob Ford a few words of political wisdom

Rob Ford ally Denzil Minnan-Wong, reflecting on the implications of yesterday’s transit vote, yet another big defeat for Ford—and a comfortable win for his opponents. Ford supporters will no doubt continue to paint Karen Stintz as a turncoat, but the mayor is facing off against a sizable and emboldened opposition, and, as Minnan-Wong said, he’s going to have to learn to get things done with council as it is now, not like it was in the early days of his administration.
