Ford is a train wreck. He is out of control AND it seems to have affected his ability to make rational decisions. It would appear that Ford is an alcoholic on his way to the bottom. He has already admitted to smoking crack and will not admit to smoking it only once. He is reported to also smoke pot and abuses oxycontin. Snorting coke in a nightclub has been mentioned by several sources. Attempting to use his power as mayor to find out about police surveillance and to attempt to talk to a prisoner in jail long after visiting hours and possibly paying for the utility bills at an alleged crack house; posing (socially) in front of the crack house with 3 drug hustlers; one of whom was murdered and the other in jail for trafficking; admitting to city council yesterday that he has purchased illegal drugs - might be red flags. LOL! Crack? Who the hell smokes crack other than out of control junkies, marginal members of the mainstream and people so deep into other substance addictions that smoking crack is a common progression.
There is more, but why list it all? In fact, the investigation into Ford by the police and the press doesn't seem to be complete at this point.
Ford has yet decided if he needs rehab! From all I have read he is in no way contrite. Would you want someone like this running your business? The good Ford has accomplished for Toronto is overshadowed by Ford's public meltdown. He is a sick man who needs a great deal of help, physically and psychologically. He is no longer responsible to himself and it sounds as if he has long ago lost the confidence of most of his staff. He should resign now and begin working on his life and his family.
Lastly, it would appear that Ford has compromised himself to the point that many other people in positions of power are going to stay the hell away from him. What he may have accomplished in the past is well, in the past. I doubt he has the brainpower to function as he once did.
