It is a great comfort to the Oracle of Ottawa that there exists in the province of Ontario dumber municipal voters than the pathetic rubes in Ottawa. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that there would be a Mayor of Toronto that would make His Worship Larry O'Brien look like Cardinal Richelieu! But not only did that come true, Rob Ford brought his brother Doug Ford Jr! Who by chance or circumstance is an elected councilor!
All the red meat righties of Toronto are still convinced that this combination would be unbeatable. Well not so fast...

The Oracle of Ottawa has learned from his daily scan of the Globe and Mail web page that the Brothers Ford may have picked up a challenging force in the form of one Margaret Atwood, a great Canadian and not failing to mention, one of Ottawas most famous daughters. Perhaps it would be wise for the staff of Mayor Ford and/or Councilor Ford to have a little sit down with Krista Erickson on the subject and fallout of mouthing off in a disrespectful manner to and or about Canadian icons. The fact that Maggy has over 85,000 Twitter followers is something that can not be lightly disregarded.

This KPMG study is something that council in the future should erect some rules against. I wonder what a Swiss Cooperative knows about Toronto? Surely there recommendations have the best and most honourable interests of all Torontonians at heart. One must ponder the future fallout of all these recent events. To all the right-wingers that thought a vote for Mr. Ford was like sticking it in a Liberals eye, do you realize that the costs for this will far outweigh all the miserable nickels and dimes that the Brothers Ford are going to "save" you and the cost of the damage to the image of Toronto to the world? Soon the tourist traffic will start to fall off. Then your world city rankings will be soon to follow. Why, look at all the money you saved!
It is great to have a good coach, isn't it?
