Democracy is never wrong

Anyone who follows the news knows the problems Toronto City Council faces in light of the revelations of that city’s duly elected mayor; that he has smoked crack cocaine and that he has on occasion had a drink or two too many. In addition to that, he has used most inappropriate language from time to time during this ordeal.

As a Montrealer, far be it for me to weigh in on this mess. However, let me say that the people of Toronto democratically elected Mr. Ford, who is not facing any criminal charges at this time.

Mr. Ford should be left to finish out the mandate that he was elected to serve and then let the people decide. If he is reelected to the position, then he’s the right person for the job. Democracy is never wrong.
