Duly Quoted: The Toronto Police Service’s Official Facebook Page

“Finally, on behalf of all the citizens of Toronto that value road safety, Mr Mayor… please get a driver. It is obvious that you are busy enough to require one and no amount of money you are saving by not having one is worth the life of one of your citizens.”

—After Mayor Rob Ford admitted to reading while driving on the Gardiner Expressway yesterday—which is not in itself an illegal act, though it can be a factor in a careless-driving charge—a Toronto Police officer whom the Globe identifies as Sgt. Tim Burrows added a message to the Toronto Police Service’s official Facebook page. It concluded with a plea, quoted above in its original form. (The second sentence was deleted at some point after the message was posted.) Despite the urging of his brother, Councillor Doug Ford (Ward 2, Etobicoke North), Rob Ford has refused to hire a driver since becoming mayor.
