Morning Brew: Rob Ford's lawyer slams Toronto Police, Liberal cabinet minister calls for resignation, GO fare hike given green light, and stolen Jesus statue returned

Posted by Chris Bateman / December 6, 2013

toronto bay stationRob Ford's lawyer is leading the charge in defence of the mayor. Dennis Morris told the Toronto Sun the Toronto Police should be embarrassed by the latest ITO release that reveals allegations Ford was blackmailed over the crack video. Morris accused the force of having a political agenda. "This is just dirt piled upon dirt piled upon dirt in order to humiliate the mayor," he said.

Speaking on a Washington D.C. sports radio station yesterday morning, Ford called the latest allegations an "outright lie." He told the Sun's Joe Warmington the information in the ITO is "so far fetched, it isn't even funny,"

Meanwhile, Brad Duguid has become the first provincial cabinet minister to call for Rob Ford to resign. "It is time for the mayor to step aside," Duguid, the minister of training, colleges and universities and former city councillor with Rob Ford, told reporters. "I think it has been very disruptive to us all."

Rob Ford is still invited to the Etobicoke Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade but it's not clear whether he will go. In previous years Ford has walked the route and handed out candy. The organizers haven't heard back from the mayor's office.

A shooting in a luxury condo at Yonge and the 401 in June 2012 provided some of the impetus for the Project Traveller raids, CBC News reports. The gun death of Hussein Hussein, possibly as the result of a mistake handling a weapon, revealed links to a Detroit-Toronto smuggling operation and was part of the reason police decided to carry out a series of city-wide raids in June.

Dancing crossing guard Kathleen Byers has been told to lay off the moves. 64-year-old Byers has been bringing music and fancy footwork to the intersection of Gordon and Dufferin for almost a decade. Toronto Police, who run the crossing guard program, say it's a safety risk.

Get ready to pay a little more for a ride on GO Transit. The Metrolinx board approved a hike that will add between 35 and 55 cents to every cash fare, but less to Presto users. Riders who make longer commutes will end up paying more. It's expected the increase will raise an extra $25 million.

A statue of Jesus stolen from outside a Kensington Market church has been returned with a note of apology. The distinctive Timothy Schmalz figure, titled "Whatsoever You Do," was found outside St. Stephen-in-the-Fields yesterday morning with a rain-damaged letter. "It looks like it says, 'I'm sorry, it seemed like a good idea at the time,' Rev. Maggie Helwig told The Star.

I think it's pretty much agreed throughout the legal community that Dennis Morris is a fool. RE: "police humiliating the mayor" - he does realize that this is WIRETAP evidence, and that the courts are the ones who forced this info to be released, yes?

RE: Steve - yes, the government screwed up huge with the gas plant scandal, yet they were re-elected (albeit to minority status) and stand a damn good chance of getting a majority this spring. I know that you'll never let up with the Doug Ford talking points ("unelected Premier"), but as it's been explained to you before, that's the way a parliamentary system works.

Nothing seems "so far fetched" anymore. Even though that information came from unreliable sources, those gang members have more credibility than Ford.

It would be nice if those pictures could be found somehow so we can get the inevitable, "What can I say? The past is the past" shrug of an apology out of the way.

Accountability. If it doesn't apply to Ford, than shut up about the gas plant.

There is an active investigation into the gas plant 'scandal'. Dalton McGunity showed enough integrity to resign.
The billion dollar cost was the result the liberals giving into he will of the people. The liberals ran with moving the gas plants as part of their election platform. They delivered what the people wanted. The price of democracy comes with price tag, sometimes unknown and at times shockingly high, but far less then no democracy.
Kathleen Wynne is duly elected, we are not the USA.

You do know that Ernie Eves was premier for about a year and a half under the exact same circumstances right?

Didn't win an election to become premier, predecessor stepped down, had to deal with problems leftover from a government that had clearly become way too comfortable in power?

You don't vote for Premier, Steve. The actual voting process is nothing like you see in the movies. There's no Kathleen Wynne or Ernie Eves box to check (Unless you live in their riding), you only vote for your local MP. It's not exactly exciting, but hopefully that won't dissuade you from voting when you're old enough.

I'm not quite clear how that would work, though - why would Wynne resign when she didn't oversee the gas plant scandal? Her predecessor (McGuinty) resigned, and she'll face the electorate soon enough. It's not like the whole Liberal caucus is just going to resign, either.

I don't think anyone other than a few angry morons with no working knowledge of how our system works are calling for her resignation. Hell, I don't even think the PCs or NDP are calling for her resignation (unlike Ford, who has faced a mass revolt from all of his council colleagues).

When Harris stepped down, the party voted for Ernie Eves to replace him. Same thing happened with Wynn. Because that's the democratic process.

Shirley, nobody said that his voice is on wiretaps. However, Ford's lawyer claims that the police are trying to humiliate the mayor, but the problem with this argument is that it was the COURT that forced the release of wiretap evidence the police collected.

The fact that drug dealers (who were part of a large police investigation, hence the wiretaps) are talking about Ford on the phone is not indicative of police prejudice against His Worship, as his lawyer seems to indicate. However, the claims that the drug dealers make on the phone (and which, when one thinks about, makes zero sense to fabricate as they didn't know they were being recorded) is deeply troubling and further suggests that Ford is not fit for public office.

AL-Ontario voted for the party led by Dalton McGuinty. Nice try.

HipAnonymous-Gang members, for the most part, will not have credibility, unless of course it is advantageous to the police or the media.

Dr. Arcula-The voting process means different things to different people. Some vote for the leader, some for the incumbant, and some for the party. It's up to the individual to do what's best for them. You can have a great leader, but half of the MP'S, MPP'S could be less than desirable, and unfortunately the party gets to wear the blame. Take AL for instance, he votes for the party, and it doesn't matter what things they're involved in, he just keeps voting the same way because it's advantageous to him.

Kate-The left on council is wearing the extra costs of the Scarborough subway, because they gave Scarborough an LRT they didn't ask for. So quite naturally, the LRT project got cancelled (just like the gas plants got cancelled), and extra costs were incurred. It wouldn't have mattered of course, because even if the LRT had been built, I'm sure the left would've figured out a way to balloon the costs (just like the Spadina extension), and blame it on Rob.

ALL CAPS-I like your style. Thanks for posting valid facts. You're right, Wynne did sign off on the deal, just like her Education Minister signed off on the sex ed curriculum that a pedophile created for 11 year old kids.

E.Toby Coke-Sort of like what they did with the BC premier (she didn't win a seat in her old riding-some people know best) so they had an MPP from another riding step down, to accomodate her.

Aw, ol' Shirley is back with the "but we didn't waaaaaaaant an LRT!" line. That's like a 16-year-old getting a Honda Civic for his birthday, and throwing a fit because he wanted a Honda Ridgeline.

We don't always get what we want, Shirl. Scarborough was given an LRT because that was the most affordable and practical option. Scarborough has lost the right to pout about increased taxes for the subway.

Auder-Well he's right, they are trying to humiliate him. This judge was HAND PICKED by the TPS, so there goes that theory. I strongly believe the gang members knew they were being tapped, and I believe the police knew it too. I also don't buy into the Detroit/Toronto connection (as being their excuse for targetting the Mayor). Lots of people sell and smoke crack in this city (with the blessing of the TPS, and our governments), so there could only be one reason the Mayor was targetted, for political gain. I do like the way your mind works, I just have some concerns of my own that leads me to believe what I do.

Well if RoFo hadn't openly admitted to buying and doing crack, then it would be a little more plausible to dismiss this as a conspiracy theory. The fact that he's admitted it, though, makes it pretty far-fetched that it's some grand strategy by the police to humiliate him.

Let's face it - there's no one on earth who is better at humiliating Rob Ford than Rob Ford himself.

tommy - For those who care to be informed, you can find these facts anywhere on the web. I'm just re-reporting the news just like BlogT.O. All that matters, is that the majority of people who don't let the media do their thinking for them, know where to find the information if they so choose. Get off your duffs and find it yourselves. My guess is you won't because you're not interested in the facts. You want to know about TTC you go to the TTC website; the city, and the province also have their own website, TCHC has their own website. You can watch city council meetings (although they go in camera quite often now) or you can watch the province or the feds on TV (for what it's worth). It's not rocket science people.

Robert-100% correct.

Shirley, I know that there's literally nothing that I'm going to say that will change your mind here, but I think that when someone makes a claim - i.e. that there's some grand conspiracy against Ford, as him and Doug would try and lead us to believe - they need to back this up with evidence, or at least a plausible explanation.

So far, there's absolutely nothing that points a finger at the TPS or courts being biased against Ford. I'm no fan of Blair's (and believe he should have resigned for the G20 debacle), but there's just not a reasonable explanation why they would set out to destroy him. Just think:
-The man has openly admitted to smoking crack while in office.
-There are photos of him drinking in a park during the middle of a workday
-Photo of him with gang members
-Association with a drug dealer/convicted criminal who is now before the courts on extortion charges
-Admitting to drinking and driving

The list goes on and on.

If anything, the police have given him a massive benefit of the doubt. But the overwhelming evidence (which, admitedly, has not been proven in court), as well as Rob's history of lying about everything until proven wrong, points to this being a mess of his own making.

Shirley, I guess it would be a waste of time explaining things like the ad hominem fallacy; I'm not sure if you would really get it, or if you'd be honest enough to attack the idea and not the person making the argument.

If your allegiance is really to the ideology and the policies, wouldn't it make more sense to find some other fiscal conservative that does not have the baggage that Rob Ford has?

I am in law, so rethink the "pounding the pavement on behalf of others" thing; that's what I do for a living.

That, and they also have no idea what LRT is, or how subways are built.

There needs to be a civics test and a whole lot of things expected of anybody before they can vote. Also, we need term limits for city councilors in Toronto so that mistakes like Rob Ford won't be allowed to fester on at City Hall, or get any traction to become mayor.

Mr.A - BTW, "ad hominem does not apply in this case, as you were originally the aggressor. I was simply responding to your post.

Simon Tarses - Well I can tell you right now city council voted against term limits. Be careful what you pray for though, because term limits could be set higher (not lower), Councillor McMahon asked for a 10 year term limit. Just imagine what that would feel like to you if someone you didn't like was in office for 10 years. As for giving people tests to make sure they know how to vote? That will never happen. Politicians are most likely moving towards giving illegals the right to vote, like they do in the states.
