FORD wants BIKES on SIDEWALKS!!!

In an address that meanders as much as a riverbank bikepath, TORONTO's popular mayoralty hopeful ROB FORD shares his thoughts on active urban transport infrastructure during City Council's pivotal JARVIS STREET BIKE LANE debate, May 2009.

This public performance underscores wide criticism that FORD attacks everything, but has no realistic solutions for anything - just scattershot rants that resonate with an angry, long-disengaged electorate.

Sadly, comic relief is not always a welcome part of the skill-set that the job demands. We in TORONTO had already learned this the hard way with another Rexdale-based businessman and former mayor, Mel "Nobody" Lastman.

Bonus clip: For all those who doubt that any bike courier would befriend so ignorant and disrespectful a municipal politician, we offer this recording of a subsequent "telephone meeting" between the messenger and the mayor:
