Mayor Ford Ignored The Obvious

When the mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, was kicked out of office by a judge last week, I was initially shocked. All this over a little $3,150 donation to a worthy cause? Now that I have read an article that gave more history to the issue, I am surprised he did not get booted out […]
