Holy effballs, sorry if this is a repost but I just was able to get my tongue back in my mouth having swallowed it after reading the following quote from one of our fine city councillors - Rob Ford:

"I can't support bike lanes. Roads are built for buses, cars, and trucks. My heart bleeds when someone gets killed, but it's their own fault at the end of the day."

http://www.boingboing.net/2007/03/09...ncillor_d.html

Anyone up for a mass ride down to council chambers?

You gotta be kidding me! What district is this clown representing? I guess since his name is Ford he feels he has to act in such an assholish manner.
Just like the woman who wears revealing clothing was asking for it. Man...I just cannot believe that...holy crap.

I would love to write him but I dont think I could do it without going in to a profanity laced tirade. Words cannot express the amount of rage I am feeling towards this guy. Calm blue ocean...calm blue ocean...calm blue ocean

No one said he is all bad. You trolling for someone who said something like this...and purporting to be a cyclist...only shows your true colours.

Here's the poop on Rob Ford from wikipedia: Staunch supporter of Mike Harris is all you really need to know.

For example: "It [AIDS] is very preventable," and that "if you are not doing needles and you are not gay, you wouldn't get AIDS probably, that's bottom line." When given the opportunity to retract his statement, Ford instead replied with respect to the increasing rates of women contracting the disease saying, "How are women getting it? Maybe they are sleeping with bisexual men."

Just another example of how those who aspire to public power are the least capable of wielding it.

And please stop quoting jit. You'll never have more time than a bored 15 year old.

Did you read the wikipedia node? I think he IS all bad.

eg. "Further controversy erupted in a Toronto City Council session when Ford argued against the city spending $1.5 million on AIDS prevention programs. Ford stated that "It [AIDS] is very preventable," and that "if you are not doing needles and you are not gay, you wouldn't get AIDS probably, that's bottom line.""

we all know there are a LOT of mouth-breathers like this out there, but my question is more for the people of Etobicoke North: what the **** is wrong with you?

Nothing is wrong with them, but etobicoke is all about driving to work, driving back from work, and collecting as much money as possible. Bike lanes, AIDS and homeless people don't figure in so why should they care?

I'm sure they love him because he just b*tch slaps and berates any other councillor or person who would say anything against him or etobicoke north.

councillor_ford@toronto.ca

Is his email. I just wrote and told him that I was in his district and would no longer vote for him. Will that change anything, likely not. But as Ian Mackaye once said "at least I'm ****ing trying. what the **** have you done?" I love minor threat!

It's councillor_ford@toronto.ca I suggest you write a letter.
Apparently Hamish Wilson wrote a response to the Star and Ford's already apologizing. What a schmuck.

Anybody want a singlespeed MTB?

Oh sporadic bikeforumsship. How jolly.

In defense of Rob Ford:

Councillor Howard Moscoe was city council's big spender last year, doling out nearly $53,000 of his annual $53,100 office budget. By contrast, Councillor Rob Ford proved to be council's penny-pincher, filing only $6 worth of expenses for some photocopying
