“Exactly; adults.

We're talking about two bloated, spoiled, self absorbed frat brothers whose money and political connections have given them every entitlement of their diletante lives they've convinced themselves they deserve.”

“Ward made a critical mistake jumping onto the track, but a lot of other drivers managed to avoid him, and Stewart's history of losing his shiite before isn't going to help him.”

“So Conservatives are doubling down on their winning strategy of not only not asking questions, but making it clear that they believe the act of asking questions of public figures is somehow tantamount to treason.

What could possibly be disastrous about refusing any other position than standing fast on the wrong side of history?”

“So men are 'tough' and women are 'biatches' when it comes to being firm and steadfast in their political convictions?

Can't wait to hear how Shurman's female relatives will be lining up to support such an anachronistic and mean spirited rant.”

“'Since when are Chinese a minority group in Toronto?'

Since currently?

http://www1.toronto.ca/city_of_toronto/social_development_finance__administration/files/pdf/2006_ethnic_origin_visible_minorities_backgrounder.pdf

'The South Asian population has now exceeded the Chinese population as the most visible minority group in Toronto. The top five visible minority groups (as defined by Statistics Canada) in Toronto were:
- South Asian at 298,370 or 12.0% of our population
- Chinese at 283,075 or 11.4%
- Black at 208,555 or 8.4%
- Filipino at 102,455 or 4.1%
- Latin American at 64,860 or 2.6% '

Less than 15% of the total population seems like a minority to me.”

“It was a rhetorical question. Maybe you should try visiting IKEA in Willowdale on any given Saturday and see if those figures still seem accurate to you, Dr. Statistics.”

“You can probably figure out why someone making such a ridiculous and spurious comment is doing so about the only individual who is a member of a minority group running for Mayor of Toronto.”

“Because 'all the homeless' are unlikely to be subjected to the additional threat of being further alienated by those of Ford's ilk who would rather despise them openly and treat them like dirt.

You know, exactly how Ford treats the adult GLBT community in Toronto.”

“There are plenty of other Ford "issues". Stintz was the target and she says it's over. It would disrespect her to bring it up again. As for a measure of Ford's character - do we really have no other measure?”

“Sigh; regardless, Rob Ford has spent over a year lying about everything under the Sun, has falsely accused the media, his critics at City Hall, the Chief of Police and the TPS of a mythological conspiracy and witch hunt (for which he's offered no remorse), has appeared in public, at City Hall no less, while intoxicated, has been derelict in his duties, has associated with known criminals and is involved in a murder investigation about which he refuses to cooperate with the police, has hurled vulgar and offensive racial slurs about every minority in the city including the LGBT community when he thought no one was listening and is now admitting that he is at the mercy of his innumerable demons, but wants to assure us that he's up to the challenges of the single most stressful job in the largest city in the nation, as well as simultaneously battling his formidable addictions.

Rob Ford doesn't deserve to be anywhere near City Hall.”

“Are you seriously advocating that a recovering addict who admits he cannot control his impulses, should be the Mayor of Toronto?

Are you really suggesting that Rob Ford hasn't exhibited all the signs of a human train wreck?”

“No, I'm suggesting that every recovering addict can't control their impulses...that is why recovery is a lifelong effort. I'd be more concerned if he claimed he could control his impulses”
