Meanwhile, polls show support for Ford is undiminished among the suburban constituencies that brought him into power in the first place.
This will hurt him, but the exorbitantly-expensive-chairs scandal that is still playing out practically seems designed to justify his presence in City Hall. I would guess he'll be not much worse off at the end of October than he was at the end of September.
Unless that video actually surfaces, or Olivia Chow turns out to be an extraordinary campaigner, or some new scandal emerges, there's a pretty good chance he gets re-elected. Let's hope the aformentioned fishing expeditions bring in some fish.
