Exposing Rob Ford

This, I’m sure, will become a daily post – there are so many lies and half-truths that it’s hard to keep track. But since Rob and Doug Ford seem to believe that the more you tell a lie the more true it becomes, a big fat reality check is needed on the garbage they spew.

Today’s Rob Ford lie:

Ford told media outlets that he was elected with the largest majority in history.

Here’s the truth:

It’s a whopper of a lie! Rob Ford was elected with 47% of the vote. This means that he did not actually get a majority. The majority of Torontonians voted against Ford.

In the last 60 years of mayoral races in Toronto, the following people did better – and had a stronger mandate – than Rob Ford:

David Miller
Mel Lastman
June Rowlands
Art Eggleton
David Crombie
Philip Givens
Donald Summerville
Nathan Philips
Alan Lamport
Hiram E. McCallum

And there is the truth about this Rob Ford lie.
