The Verdict’s In: Ford’s Our New Mayor and Twitter Doesn’t Like It

Rob Ford may not have been my top pick for mayor of Toronto but democracy ruled last night and like it or not, he’ll be running our city for the next four years. While people have found plenty to knock him about (his policies, that cheesy music… “Do You Think I’m Sexy?” and municipal politics realllllly don’t go well together), Ford’s win has shown me both how passionate Torontonians are about their city and – as these tweets prove – how hilarious we can be when we’re mad about something.

I really wish our new mayor was Tom Ford and not the fat and suave-less Rob. blerg. #voteTO – @HawleyDunbar

I can and always will be disappointed by election results but at the end of the day, I love my city. – @unbrelievable

Wait…that’s it? (He says, watching the mayoral saga from another country and time zone) I’ve waited longer for pizza delivery. – @shinangovani

OH: Rob Ford looks like the kind of man who’d force himself on you. His breath would smell like hot dogs. – @ccath
