Rob Ford is no longer a football coach. Meanwhile Baird was fairly defensive in QP, taking hits on oppo questions related to cheques, emails and the agreement. His monochromatic answer on waiting for Mary Dawson's report was eerily reminiscent of Brison's regarding Gomery during the Martin era. On the other side, LeBreton gave a speech which was part Senate history, part fiery partisanship- "Liberal media lickspittles", comparing her and Tory expenses to Liberals', etc.- and a call for disclosure rules similar to cabinet ministers'. Not the first time she's done this either.

Carolyn Stewart-Olsen and David Tkachuk ordered the doctoring of the Senate report. Government insiders are worried about what Duffy might say if he speaks out publicly.

The Rob Ford fund is going to be tight. They're at $110,000 with 6 days left.

They're at $135,000 with 4 1/2 days left.  Definitely on pace they just have to keep it going.

Well, it'll likely slow down as they get closer to the deadline. That's why I think it's going to be tight.

hopefully they'd have the dignity to contribute $20k or so to their own fund if it is close.  since they're socializing cost and privatizing profit.

Mounties want to look at the trio's expenses. Meanwhile in polling news, Forum pegs the LPC with a big lead nationally while CROP sees both Liberal parties well ahead in Quebec with a closely divided Francophone electorate. Too bad they didn't project. PQ is losing 17% of their former base voters to QS/ON.

I know Forum has a good provincial track record now, but I can only ROFLMAO when they claim the Grits tie us in ALBERTA.

Update on Fordgate: (Crackgate?)

Ford fired his chief of staff yesterday, apparently because he told Ford to "Go To Rehab".

Lovin' this.

Also, the executive council of Toronto, appointed by the mayor doesn't seem to support him anymore.

And Tyrone Benskin (NDP, Jeanne-Le Ber) was excluded from shadow cabinet after Mulcair learned in news than he didn't pay his provincial taxes between 2007 and 2011. He blamed it on being an artist and having no money to pay.

Back to Crackgate. Ford held a press conference this afternoon stating "I do not use crack". Note the present tense in that statement Tongue

Ford denies all the allegations, but the executive committee will try and govern without him nonetheless.

Well, to be fair, many "poors" don't pay taxes for much the same reason.

OLP MPP Tarinder Takhar will retire at the next election. On that subject, new Ipsos/CTV poll has a 34/34/26 topline. Hudak definitely has to fix those toxic personals (how'd they appear?), plus lasso Blue Grits and swingy WWC populists.

Taxes: Mai also has unpaid taxes, but he disclosed them to Dawson and not to the public.

We also definitely need full expenses disclosure in both houses, not that we're ever gonna get them.
