    He should resign. He isn't mayor material.

    Re: Toronto Mayor

    The most appropriate thing to do for himself and the city of Toronto is to resign.

    I picked other.I could care less what the mayor of Toronto does. Its like trying to care what the mayor of Istanbul Turkey, Oaxaca Mexico, Pretoria South Africa or the mayor of some other city does.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Toronto Mayor

    I would say it depends on if he was doing a good job

    I don't like him personally, and I am not sure on how his budget cuts have effected the city (positive or negative). His personal life is his, and what he has done, while stupid in my opinion, is certainly not bad enough to say he is a horrible evil person who should lose his job. The biggest issue is that he left himself open to blackmail while doing what he did

    I hear he likes to get college presidents drunk before major speeches too. Definitely has to go.

    Re: Toronto Mayor

    As a former resident of Toronto I can say...

    We all fall down.

    We all stumble.

    Hell my time in Toronto was characterized by heavy alcohol and marijuana usage. Three years later I have a wife and kid, and at junior management level in the hotel industry.

    I don't have anything against the guy personally, I never found him particularly palatable as Mayor but that's just my opinion.

    But the issue is that as mayor he is charged with performing certain tasks for the city (such as promoting the city, securing multi-billion/million dollar projects) which I feel are just not possible with all of this surrounding him.

    He should resign immediately.

    He should do whatever the people of Toronto want him to do. It's their call.

    I chose other - as a resident of Toronto, I voted for Mayor Ford and I will gladly vote for Mayor Ford again next October. He may be a bull in a china shop, but that china shop needs to be busted up a lot and he's the man who's been digging up the liberal rooted decay at city hall and he still has lots to do.

    He should continue with his agenda of reducing waste, saving taxpayers' money, reducing and/or limiting the growth of taxes, and exposing the teat-sucking liberal leeches who've been destroying the city for too long.
