Rob Ford Ouster

November 28, 2012 by  

Rob Ford Ouster, A judge has prematurely ended Rob Ford’s mayoralty. Yes, there’s still more legal maneuvering to come. The mayor will appeal, and he could be granted a stay that would keep him in office until his appeal is over. For the moment, though, what’s important is that Ford is in a jam-a jam so sticky (and, for his opponents, so sweet) that no writer can resist pausing for a lick or two. Here is what everyone is saying about the mayor’s demotion to mayor-for-now.

There has been some international interest in the Ford case. Bloomberg has a piece, and so does The Atlantic‘s cities blog. Vice is lamenting the fact that “Toronto just fired the greatest mayor of all time,” although the article messes up a lot of details. Forbes had a little something, as did a paper in Albany, New York, whose editors decided to dub Ford “Canada’s Chris Christie.” (Let us know if you’ve spotted more out-of-town press mentions.)

Here at home, you might expect the Toronto Sun, Ford’s one and only consistent backer in the media, to be awash with righteous anger today. Actually, the lack of overreaction there is almost disappointing. A mild cover sets the tone (no flaming letters?), and there there’s this piece by the reliably incredible (that is, literally incredible) Sue-Ann Levy. Aside from a whole lot of left-baiting meanness, it’s actually quite reasonable insofar as, sure, this is arguably not the most fair way for Ford to have been ousted.
