Rob Ford was quickly UN-liked by many. Some didn’t even like him from the start.
ROB FORD, THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH-I’m torn between the impulse to massage the memory of the man into something soothing and palatable, and the impulse to tell the truth: that Ford could be a terrible, terrible person.

Rob Ford, 1969-2016: A legacy he never intended
If I have to alight on one incident of surpassing significance amidst the mayhem of Rob Ford’s mayoralty, I find myself bypassing the chaos of the scrums outside his office, the humiliations of the trials, the self-destructive behaviour, and the endless examples of how this curious man coarsened Toronto’s civic discourse.
Rob Ford is dead. The former Toronto mayor died of cancer this morning, at 46 years old. According to news reports and social media, we are in mourning, as always, expected to politely and respectfully honour men when they pass, even if they were bad men.
Rob Ford was a bad man.
The founders of the United States designed a system in which voters elected smart people and those smart people ran the country. They called it a republic.Over time, money corrupted the system. Rich people became the real power. The rich controlled the media, and that was enough to control the minds of voters. Let’s call that system a type of “economic fascism.” By that I mean the real power is the top 1% (as opposed to one dictator) and the rest of the country has no real power.

Trudeau 1 brought in private bank lending and interest to finance Canada Inc ‘s budget. What will Trudeau 2 do?
So, around 1974, the Government of Canada began to borrow all of the monies to cover its shortfalls from the private sector at interest rather than creating money through the Bank of Canada interest-free. In other words, since 1974, the Bank of Canada has not been acting in the best interest of its shareholders: the people of Canada.
The interest we pay daily to bankers is obscene.
In 2011, alone, Canadian taxpayers paid the private banks an estimated $37.7 billion to service the federal debt—over $103 million each and every day of the year!
I’m not too sure what to think of this whole issue, but I think that having a public bank lend to Canada is better than a private bank.
This is what this lawsuit is all about, apparently.
