Rob Ford and Bullying

November 13, 2012

Monday, Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto, is at an event to support Bullying Awareness Week, at which he said,  “There are many different types of bullying, but being called fat, all that stuff, it bothers you, but you have to deal with it.”

This is happening the same day that Michelle Berardinetti, a Scarborough councillor quits the City of Toronto’s Executive Committee “…because she is tired of being pressured to vote with the mayor,” according to the Globe and Mail.

“I expected a degree of autonomy,” Ms. Berardinetti said Monday. “I was told that it would just be key votes. So when we started and it became every single vote, I had real problems with that.”  (Quote taken from the Globe and Mail)

So Rob, it looks like you can dish it out but you can’t take it.  Stop being a bully Ford!
