Toronto has been held hostage to the dysfunction of City Hall under Mayor Rob Ford’s watch. Partisan dissension and legal challenges dominate the headlines and have divided the city’s inhabitants. It’s wild political theatre but it also means that the many vital issues the city needs to address languish. Veteran journalist Kenneth Kidd offers us a clear-eyed and cogent look at the debacle of the Ford administration and analyzes just how the Divisional Court ruling will affect Ford – and the rest of us.
