Mayor Rob Ford's car impounded by police

Posted by Staff / May 21, 2014

Rob Ford car impoundedThe Rob Ford soap opera continues, even as the Mayor is in rehab. CityNews reports that Ford's Cadillac Escalade was impounded by police on Tuesday afternoon. Although the mayor was not in the vehicle at the time, the OPP have laid an impaired driving charge in conjunction with the seizure. As to the identity of the person charged, CP24 identifies her as LeeAnne McRobb, a Muskoka Lakes resident.

So weird.

The mayor's brother and campaign manager Doug Ford claims not to know who McRobb is, though it appears that no theft charges have been laid at this time. In fact, it sounds like this is all news to the Ford camp, which must be fun for them. On the bright side, at least Rob wasn't around when all this happened. Yes, I just wrote that sentence. And yes, things have gotten so bad that it seemed necessary to do so. You can, however, bet that there's more to this story to come.

I'm assuming Rob had lent his SUV to someone connected to his rehab stay in muskoka. Makes sense as she lives there, he's there......maybe picking up some belongings and stopped by Jillys for a farewell brew?

Buddy, c'mon! This isn't news worthy? I mean, it's not as if anyone could possibly make this stuff up and nobody is exaggerating anything here. Call him unlucky if you like, but this guy is, without question, the largest magnet for scandal to ever be elected to a municipal office.

"Looser's"... in only eight characters we have a clear indication of just how dumb the people of Ford Nation are. Spelling and grammar checks can't make up for an education in the same way that money and lies can't make up for a lack of competence and integrity.

First of all it is spelled wrong. The word is spelled loser not looser. Secondly the plural is not built with an apostrophe. That is what Drew said. His counting was also correct:

1234567890
looser's

If you count the s at the end, which is not part of the word, you also have to count the apostrophe. The word itself, even if spelled wrong, has 6 characters.
But since he was referring to the grammatical construction, which includes the apostrophe and the s, to point out 2 errors, he was absolutely correct by counting all 8 characters.

Umm...sorry to tell you but "Looser's" is 7 letters, not characters! It's 8 characters...'cause of that pesky, mis-placed apostrophe.

With all the evil and inhumanity out there today, even promoted, there are people who simply believe that Ford must be doing something right, which is why he is being attacked. The media is corrupt, and those with power and access are able to get their ways. These days, if someone is good or doing good, they will be persecuted. Wake up

Still convinced he's in rehab? Someone gets caught with impaired driving while driving the vehicle of someone who's supposed to be in a rehabilitation. Do the math people...

Ford Nation, why do you have to be so incredibly gullible and so blindly supportive? You have a soft and tender heart to still be behind this guy, not much common sense, nor have you proven to be decent judges of character. I'm sorry to be the one to have to tell you this, but it's time to put this dying dog to sleep. You want a conservative guy to vote for, vote Tory. He's an asshole too, just like Ford. He just doesn't smoke crack. That's a plus!

Why persist to support Ford anyway? He's a terribly poor option for a leader, especially for one of a city as ethnically and culturally diverse as ours. He's arrogant, bigoted, a bully and obstructionist in the council chamber. He is also not an average Joe who has made his own way in the world. He's cut from the same elitist cloth as the people he points his finger at. Everything he has was handed to him. Even you, his loyal supporters, handed to him by the Toronto Sun (and all other QMI Agency affiliates). The same news agencies who now have thrown him under the bus. Why? Because they have enough sense to see that not only is Rob Ford a liability, but he is not fit to run one of the great metropolises of this world.

Has any of this sunk in? Or are the effects of the Ford Nation KoolAid still distorting your world view?

Looks like the Bala OPP detachment - it's being reported as Bracebridge OPP but it would be their sub-station in Bala based on the locations. Probably the most action they've had since Snoop Dogg played the Kee.

So a worker from the rehab that had access to his car keys took a fancy car for a joy ride and got pissed and caught. This has nothing to do with Rob.

The details of the rehab are sketchy. I pay taxes. Taxes pay this mayor. I deserve to know where he is while accepting my taxes. If mayor drug-addict is not on the payroll, I could care less what he does. This is all a numbers game. Rob and Doug used their pull at city hall to generate revenue for Deco labels. They call this Organized Crime. Everyone is afraid to say it because Toronto The Good is Toronto The Coward. Wake up people. The fords are taking us all for a ride.

mike in parkdale > LMAO!

Well nice to see most of you have cleaned up the potty mouth in exchange for some pretty good humor.

I must say, it's a heck of an emotional workout supporting Ford.

I'm no longer looking at what good he's done in the past (yes I know we differ greatly in our opinions on the subject), I'm more focused, now, on what potential harm he could create for us in the future (in his weakened state). I don't feel he'll be able to resolve his health issues by election time (not even on the most basic level). I'm not even getting the sense he wants to be Mayor anymore.

One thing about persons with substance abuse issues, is that, they have these incredibly large ego's. I think Rob might be of the mindset he doesn't have to do anything and people will vote for him anyways. Rob? YOU'RE DEAD WRONG!

Rob, do Ford Nation a favor? Cut the cr*p, get focused, and for Gods sake, don't co-sign any damn loans for your new/old friends! Don't lend them your car, your cell phone, and DON'T give them any money!

Rob, one more thing. You can't buy peoples respect or support. Take away all your material and financial assets, and that's who you really are. Work on that part of you. The people who are still standing around you after the fact (with their hands in their pockets) are your friends and your support. If you're lucky enough to find such friends, make sure you give them the same in return.
