“…And of course there is the long list of Ford’s community-safety enhancing activities at Windsor Road.”

Olivia Chow (or, at any rate, the writer of her campaign’s press releases) pointing out the irony in Rob Ford’s appearance, on Thursday, at the Mayor’s Community Safety Awards, where he posed with police officers and refused to answer questions about his association with alleged Etobicoke gang members. Windsor Road, of course, is location of the alleged crack house police believe to have been the setting for Ford’s crack video.

According to the Star, Ford had never attended the Community Safety Awards ceremony prior to this year. Also of note: he has voted against the city’s community-safety grants during every year of his mayoralty. In fact, most of the time he’s been the only vote against them.

    What is next? Will RoFo show up the next time MADD presents an award to a Toronto police division for its RIDE program?

    The size of his hypocrisy is about 350lbs. I so despise this turd for having the gall to show up at events like this and parades. Toronto has a pig for mayor. Thank God for low class or he’d have no class.

    Poll front line police in TO. Every cop in TO supports Ford. Guys like Blair are Masons/Orangemen – a breed that is disappearing pretty fast. No front line cop supports the type of Blair anymore.
