Toronto mayor Rob "Laughable Bumblefuck" Ford -- the man accused of smoking crack with gang-members, and whose family are alleged to have ties to the KKK and organized crime -- has made a career out of avoiding answering serious questions posed by the press, preferring to address the public via the talk-radio program he and his brother, Councillor Doug Ford (accused to being west Toronto's hashish kingpin in the 1980s) host.
Now, the CBC reports that one of the longtime callers to the show was, in fact, a paid employee of Rob Ford:
In March of last year, “Dave from Scarborough” called in to say that LRT stood for “left-wing redundant transit,” as opposed to light-rail transit.
The next month, the same “Dave from Scarborough” slammed the proposal from the city’s medical officer of health to reduce speed limits.
That May, a “Dave from Etobicoke” offered his take on stores charging for plastic bags:
“That, in my humble opinion, is fascism, and it's ludicrous that comrade [former mayor David] Miller and his merry band of big-brother, I know better than you, paternalistic, heavy-handed, Looney Tunes socialists should be setting the agenda of this great city of Toronto,” the caller said.
"Dave" is David Price, the mayor's director of operations and logistics (also alleged to have helped run Doug Ford's hashish empire in the 1980s).
