Canadian Mayor

I have no intention of writing about the Canadian involvement in anti-terrorist combat around the world and its side effects. Canadian troops are currently deployed in support of UN missions in Haiti, Sierra Leone, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Cyprus and Kosovo. Canadian forces are also heavily involved in the war in Afghanistan at present.


Recently, Ujjal Dosanjh, a Canadian politician and Liberal defence critic, alleged that the fact that Canadian government ignored the warnings of torture, sent prisoners to Afghan jails at the risk of torture, is an absolute war crime. On a national TV, he criticized Canadian military leaders for being "morally weak" and accused the Canadian Forces - not just the Conservative government - of a "cover-up."

On CTV, Liberal politician Warren Kinsella compared what Canadians are doing in Afghanistan to what Americans did in Abu Ghraib, the Iraqi jail where prisoners were tortured by rogue U.S. troops. That comment speaks for itself about the so called Canadian 'clean sheet'.

This write-up is about the mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford a close pal and supporter of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Ford came into power at the mayoral election in 2010 as an independent candidate with the affiliation to governing the Conservative party. Since his arrival at the mayor's office he has been in many controversial issues and this time drugs, alcohol and bad company. He has been photographed and videoed smirking crack cocaine with his underworld pals.

After an initial denial, Ford admitted that he took drugs and drove under the influence of liquor. He said, I made mistakes, I drank too much, I smoked some crack some time. What can I say? I made a mistake, I'm human. A Police investigation revealed numerous contacts between Ford and an alleged drug dealer, although the Police have not charged the mayor with any crime. Whatever it is, it has been established that he is a habitual drug taker.

At a meeting last month, the Toronto City Council striped away much of his powers as the mayor. Several of his key staff announced they would leave and begin working for the deputy mayor, including Ford's director of policy and his chief of staff. The council had already changed the locks on some of the office space previously occupied by the mayor's staff.

Mayor Ford whose house has been visited numerous times by the City Police over domestic violence allegations, once charged him for threatening to kill his wife. Later the charges were dropped.

While Ford has faced much criticism from city politicians, members of Canada's Conservative federal government have until now keeping it low. Only one cabinet minister called for Ford's resignation. He told reporters: "Mr. Ford has brought dishonour to public office, and the office of mayor and his city. I had wanted him to take a leave of absence, but unfortunately the situation has deteriorated to the point where I think he should resign."

The situation is that serious. But there is no word from Prime Minister Stephen Harper who has been a massive supporter of Mayor Ford. Ford who was born with a bad wit has been criticised for many adverse comments he made during his career. Once he commented on hard working Asians saying "those Oriental people work like dogs. They work their hearts out. They are working non-stop. They sleep beside their machines. That's why they're successful in life."

But determined Rob Ford now wants to become the Prime Minister of Canada. Last week he told Fox News he would like to run for Prime Minister one day. That statement made Prime Minister Stephen Harper so upset that he sent a message to crack-smoking Toronto Mayor: "Keep your eyes off my job. I've heard Mr. Ford's statements that he would like to become Prime Minister of Canada. Obviously, this is not something I'm in favour of," Harper told reporters. But Harper was supported by Ford during the 2011 federal election. The two had a fishing holiday together at the Prime Minister's official country retreat after Harper's re-election. When asked if Ford should step down, Harper said: "In terms of his future in Toronto, that is for residents of Toronto to decide."

Ironically Ford was spotted last week at Prime Minister Harper's summer barbecue mixing with fellow politicians. Unlike others, Harper is a true friend of Ford.

Last week, Haroon Siddiqui, a columnist for the Canadian based star.com expressed his concerns as follows. "Ford and Harper are law-and-order men. But Ford breaks the law, and how! Harper breaks his law on fixed Election Day. Both show no respect for the institutions that keep the rule of law, the Police and the courts."

Meanwhile, it emerged that Ford has offered $5,000 and a car to buy the video allegedly showing him using crack cocaine. The details were included in a Police document released by an Ontario Superior Court judge. But Ford has only one thing in mind. That is to become the next Prime Minister of Canada.

God bless Canada!
