    Default It's Looking Like Rob Ford's Days May Be Numbered

    Toronto city councillor and former mayor Rob Ford is under 24-hour medical supervision after a recent chemotherapy treatment did not work, a source tells CP24.

    Fordís family has been summoned to be by his side at Mt. Sinai Hospital, and doctors are working to determine if the 46-year-old is healthy enough to undergo more treatment.

    Ford was admitted to Mt. Sinai Hospital in late February for continued treatment of several tumours located on his bladder.

    He suffers from a soft tissue cancer known as pleomorphic liposarcoma.

    While he was Mayor, he used to call into the Sports Junkies (radio show in DC) on a weekly basis to give everyone his betting picks for the week. Shit you not.

    He was funny, but in a train wreck kind of way, not a George Carlin kind of way.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I hope history will be kind to his memory. It would be a shame if all those years of service would be overshadowed by his personal struggles.

    Honestly, RIP Rob Ford. My thoughts go to the family.

    HOWEVER, the fact that The Star had this as the LEAD story on their homepage - when the Federal Budget was released - showing a $100 BILLION deficit over the next few years is staggering. Especially considering they broke Crackgate.

    It is incredibly sad, but unfortunately everything negative about him was the truth. I am sure he had the best intentions, but his way of going about it only left a trail of lies and corruption. Ford's record of accomplishments that he would always brag about, was torn to shreds through some simple fact checking by reputable journalists Jesse Brown and Desmond Cole.

    Ford dying was a MUCH bigger story in Toronto.
