QUOTED: Doug Ford on what city agency could do with a good, um, rectal cleansing

“I believe we need some business folks involved in the TTC. As far as I am concerned the TTC needs a complete enema.”

—Councillor Doug Ford telling the Globe and Mail that four or five unelected citizens could soon be appointed to the commission. The comments come as a Coalition of the Reasonable looks to be rallying to oppose Mayor Rob Ford’s plan to have the entire Eglinton LRT buried. A cynic might say this is the Fords’ attempt to regain some control amid all the dissent, but maybe they just love input from citizens. Or maybe not.
