Here at CaNews, your Canadian News Comedy Podcast, we had all but given up on old, Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford. We used him as easy laughs on some early episodes, when the crack-cocaine video scandal began a few months ago. We quietly dropped the subject, thinking this guy was made of teflon, and moved on to other important stories like 3 episodes of Jeff talking about the Xbox One.
Mr. Ford surprised everyone today with his casual confession of drug abuse, though his time frame of “probably approximately about a year ago” and the time of the event as “probably in one of my drunken stupors” left much to be desired.
After his confession, Mayor Ford said he felt as though 1,000 pounds had been lifted off his shoulders. Insert joke/pun/meme here.
His press conference was a long winded speech about how he was very sorry for his actions, stating “I was elected to do a job and that’s exactly what I’m going to continue doing.”
In other words, he ain’t gonna’ resign.
Resignation isn’t even an option, as Mr. Ford pointed out “…I can’t do anything else but apologize.” Since he has already apologized, let’s move on to his drinking problem. Aaand GO!…..
