Doug Ford on Chief Blair: "He just doesn't stop. No one's holding this guy accountable. He thinks he's in the Wild West, running around, shooting his mouth off any time and whatever he can say and someone has to rein him in. He's getting out of control in my opinion."
The Police Board holds the Chief to account. The media holds the Chief to account. And Council is holding the Chief to account. The Chief is also highly trained and specialized in law enforcement - he wasn't elected to his post by popular vote, he had to have the skills to earn it.
These are facts, clearly stated, clearly understood. But politics isn't about facts - it's about emotion.
It's also not about proving you're right - it's about proving the other guy is wrong.
So, while everyone else is focused on proving John Tory is wrong, guess who's gaining wins?
