If I Stay There Will Be Trouble

Today is budget deputation day. 220 of the taxpayers Rob Ford has respect for got themselves on to the agenda to provide their input on the city's budget.

It is also five days after Rob Ford got a stay of the court order booting him from office, since he would suffer irreparable harm if he were not mayor pending the appeal everyone knows he will lose.

He acknowledged the stay of decision by noting that he had a lot of work left to do getting the city's finances in order.

Today is also the first day of his vacation.

He's also cancelled the New Year's Levee - a longstanding LEAFS SUCK tradition where people who aren't hungover on January 1st (last year Rob Ford postponed it a day) get to meet their elected leaders for a photo op.

Coincidentally, the cost to the city for the New Years Levee is roughly $3K - the same amount he got turfed out of office for.

I did not know. I hope you enjoyed your stay and/or are still enjoying your stay if you are still here.

I wasn't vacationing - I was tending to the plague-ridden. Children are festering disease factories. Adorably beautiful festering disease factories, but festering disease factories nonetheless.
