Mayor Rob Ford began the two-year anniversary of his election with words of contrition.
To John Oakley, on AM640, he vowed to “clean up” his act and stop falling prey to “minor stuff, stupid stuff” like reading while driving on the Gardiner Expressway.
But by the afternoon, with the smell of an undefeated football season in the air as the high school squad he coaches warmed up, the mayor turned combative in the face of criticism from the city’s integrity commissioner, who found he breached the code of conduct. This violation centres around remarks he and his brother Councillor Doug Ford made in April on their radio program in which they criticized the Medical Officer of Health personally for having suggested the city lower its speed limit.
