Ford Nation YouTube

Rob Ford promises Finch subway in new YouTube video

Bounced from radio and television, the Ford brothers have taken to YouTube to address Ford Nation and anybody else who will listen to them repeat over and over again how much money they've saved the city. Their new YouTube series, which features frighteningly close views of Doug Ford's face, rather explicitly lays out the basics of Ford's re-election campaign. And while most of this is familiar territory for anyone paying attention, the claim that subway infrastructure will be coming to Finch Avenue and that a Downtown Relief Line (yes, Ford called it by that name) will be built is noteworthy in its monorail-esque fantasy vision.

Ford also addresses allegations that he has a substance abuse problem and explains why he lied about previous drug use. "I'm not a drug addict," Ford stresses. "I don't use drugs. Have I in the past? Yes. When they ask me, it's very, very humiliating in front of the world to say 'yes,' and everybody's lied, so maybe people can tell me, why do you lie? People either lie to cover up, people lie because they're embarrassed, and that's why I lied."

Apparently Rob Ford's also a social liberal, but you can make your own judgment on that one. Watch the videos below if you haven't reached Rob Ford overload.
