It’s been tempting to repost the never-ending stream of Ford jokes, quotes and videos in the name of relevance here. But for two reasons, I can’t bring myself to it: a) I am so, so, SO sick of hearing about his personal embarrassments, and b) I am so, so, SO sick of the repetitive, obsessive, cannibalistic mob behaviour of onlookers.
We are seeing a man being broken down in public, ridiculed and destroyed. If we want our kids to understand and live out the ethic of compassion when they play video games or they post on Facebook or do anything else in their lives, we need to figure it out ourselves first. Whether you are a part of “Ford Nation” or not, this is a test of our humanity.

Woop woop, Toronto got it allll!
