Rob Ford, Toronto's infamous former mayor, dead at 46


#1

Yesterday it was announced he was moved to palliative care, and his family said that palliative didn’t mean what palliative meant… And today he passed away.

He was a terrible councillor, a terrible mayor, and by all accounts a terrible husband.
But he has small kids, and this is going to be hard on them. 46 is young. Conflicted thoughts, I have 'em.

No matter what a terrible mayor he was, this is sad news.

And, as always, fuck cancer.

Wow, that was sudden.

I’m sure Mr. Ford embodied many admirable qualities in his brief life. It’s a pity that the public never got to see any of them.

Cancer? What a downer. I was hoping for something more in keeping with his rockstar lifestyle.


#8

My word? He’s dead.


#9

I think I read about that somewhere. It is very well covered by several blogs.


#10

Or not? How many threads are there on this topic?


#11

Well, he’s still got my vote.


#12

If we’d sent him to the US instead of Ted Cruz, he’d probably - even in his current state - be the Republican nominee instead of Trump.


#13

Would Rob Ford’s corpse be a better US president than Hillary or Donald?


#14

Wait… Rob Ford died… where’s the thread for that?
