About Ford, immigration and the media

“…Lately I’ve been writing about Rob Ford and about the push to decriminalize assisted suicide.

The link between the two can be found in the Denys Arcand’s sublime script, in the words uttered by the priest, the ones that speak directly to those in Montreal (and elsewhere) who are on the bottom rungs of society. Ford’s success was entirely predictable, or would have been, if those Torontonians most horrified by his tenure had bothered paying attention to the social climate in their city.”
