"A sandwich as mayor."

Posted on

The Toronto mayoral elections are just around the corner, and the prospects of electing Doug Ford (brother to the infamous Rob Ford) as mayor has been described as "scary" and "WTF".

While he's been recently losing momentum to candidate John Tory, Doug is still sitting in second place. To be fair, most of the Ford brothers' support comes from the outer areas of Toronto, while downtown residents are more likely to have a different agenda.

When asked, most Torontonians we talked to were still undecided about their votes, but there was a resounding and instantaneous anti-Ford response: "Just not Ford," some said. Partly because they disagreed with some of his policies and platforms (pricey subway plans, anti-bike lanes) but mostly because they are still living in embarrassment of his brother's crack-smoking, homophobic, sexist, buffoonery past. They just want the media circus to end.

Just how scared? We asked Toronto residents what they would rather put up with than have another Ford as their mayor.

1. "I'd rather have my dog poop in my house."

14. Torontonians are clearly still reeling from humiliation, but they mostly want their city's notoriety to be off of the Ford scandal. And back onto the city of Toronto.
