Meet Rob Ford, the frontrunner in Toronto's mayoral electoral race. He has complained about city spending on AIDS prevention, claiming that only homosexuals and drug users are at serious risk of getting AIDS.
He says he supports the views of a right-wing pastor who thinks that same-sex marriage will "dismantle" civilization.
He has called Asian people "Orientals" and suggested that they are taking over
, then when rebuked explained that he thought this was a positive thing. He has suggested that Toronto cannot handle any more immigrants
and that in a "perfect world" Toronto's population would remain even. He recently suggested banning marathons from public streets
. And now, he has released his long-awaited financial plan with a bizarrely bad Youtube video
where he stammers his way through a series of savings promises that simply do not add up
So what should we do when Rob Ford becomes mayor
? That's easy. Make lots of Photoshop memes.
