Extra, Extra: Ford GIFs, Holiday Gifts, and Sue-Ann Levy

Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.

Mayor Rob Ford coaching his high school football team, the Don Bosco Eagles, through a match on November 15.

  • An animated GIF of Rob Ford falling over while attempting to throw a football during a Grey Cup event on Tuesday has been posted on BoingBoing, ensuring that our mayor’s pratfall will be enjoyed by people around the world. Congratulations to all involved.
  • Speaking of Ford, former Toronto Sun editor Rob Granatstein says the mayor’s libel trial omitted some pretty compelling evidence: a press release issued by Ford’s mayoral campaign that actually said the words “I think it was corruption.”
  • But at least we don’t have the mayor of London, Ontario, right?
  • Looking to buy some books for a loved one this holiday season? Quill & Quire has a gift guide that’s all CanLit.
  • The Grid is running a cover story on Sun city columnist Sue-Ann Levy tomorrow. It may be great, or it may not be so great. Either way, it’s a must-read.

    Is Sue Ann Levy the devil? Yes. Yes, she is the devil.

    She is a horrible, shrill, ,catty, mean, no good person.

    “But at least we don’t have the mayor of London. Ontario, right?”
    With all the personal use of city resources Ford has been caught to be involved in, it’s only a matter of time before charges are brought on. Right?

    We’re better off with Ford than Fontana? Maybe better off than with Vaillancourt, but even that’s a tough choice! Instead of a tiny perfect mayor, we’re stuck with the exact opposite for another two long miserable years!

    I thoroughly enjoyed voting against Levy when she got walloped in the St. Paul provincial by-election.
