Rob Ford Found to Have Been “Unnecessarily Reckless” In Accidental Bumping

Oh, please:

Rob Ford should be found in contravention of city council’s code of conduct for running into Coun. Pam McConnell during a raucous debate nearly two years ago, Toronto’s integrity commissioner says.

In a report issued earlier this week, Integrity Commissioner Valerie Jepson says that Ford “was acting in a manner that was unnecessarily reckless, lacking in decorum, and contrary to the Code of Conduct for Members of Council.”

Ford violated two articles of the code, Jepson says: one governing conduct at council and committee meetings, and one that covers discreditable conduct.

Ford’s decision to run through the council chamber that day was “reckless and it was unbecoming of the position he held at the time,” Jepson writes, adding that Ford agreed with that assessment when she met with him about the incident.

The report notes that Ford apologized to McConnell, and offered to make a donation to a charity or cause of McConnell’s choice “to further express regret for his actions.”

The report further recommends that council allow the integrity commissioner’s office to send the money to the city, to then be disbursed “in the manner proposed by Councillor McConnell.”

      Pam “the penguin” Mconnell is well past her best before date. She makes Rob look refined in comparison.

    And leave out being specific about the *violent* protesters from OCAP, as I recall, threatening Doug Ford.

    Some pursed lipped bureaucrat took how many salary dollars to actually produce a “report” on this?

    What would we all do without this report? I shudder to think.

  • What a bunch of lying faggots! (That’s what happens when you spend half your life with a dirty cock in your mouth — you spew filth). The video can’t lie. The fact is that the video clearly shows that Rob Ford knocked her over for 1 1/100th of a second before he immediately reacted to hold her from hitting the ground. She never hit the ground — she was never knocked her over. It was obviously an accident or Ford would never have reacted that way. But that’s what happens when you spend half your life with a dirty cock in your mouth — you spew filth!

    • He was animated, bumped into her, apologised and then gave money to a charity.

      This whole sham was a shakedown.
