What it doesn’t involve is honesty, goodwill, or public service. Ford has a record on all these scores, and it’s not good. Honesty? The man lied to the public about his brother’s conduct for years as the mayor’s office descended into a drug-and-drink-fuelled clubhouse. Goodwill? Ford opposed housing for autistic children in his ward, saying they — the children — had “ruined the community.” Public service? Ford couldn’t make it through one four-year term as a councillor without publicly professing to hate the job.
