I declare the seat of the respondent, Robert Ford, on Toronto city council vacant.

— Justice Charles Hackland finds Rob Ford guilty of violating conflict of interest legislation and kicks the mayor out of office. The removal won’t actually take place for 14 days to allow for a transition period, and Ford is not barred from seeking re-election. Torontoist has the full decision.
