FIELD NOTES:   With Stephen Harper and Rob Ford seemingly reigning supreme, it’s easy to imagine a Toronto without adequate funding for, among other things, art, public transit, and safe streets for cycling. This ‘Fordzilla’ series, which depicts a “cartoon glutinous Rob Ford eating things he would like to remove from the city,” also serves as a reminder that, no matter what happens, we will always have paint, walls, and voices. (Here is a delightful video of the artist in action.)
