Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, the representative for the Church-Wellesley village and the only openly lesbian member of council, said Doug Ford seemed to be doing “a bit of baiting,” possibly to “appeal to a homophobic base within his supporters.”
She said Pride is “so much more than just a handful of people who decide to express themselves in ways that not everyone would understand.” Referring to the mayor’s own controversial behaviour, she said his administration is not in a position to criticize the morality of others.
“Should the morality police descend on the mayor’s office or the mayor’s home, they may have something to say about public drunken stupors and behaviour, crack cocaine use, the allegations of domestic assault (a charge against Rob Ford was dropped in 2008), marijuana and hash dealing (Doug Ford has denied a Globe report that he was a dealer in the 1980s), improper use of city resources, drunken outrage, public urination, cultural appropriation of a Jamaican accent. I would imagine that it’s best not to judge,” Wong-Tam said.
“When Rob Ford turns his back on Pride, he turns his back on families. He turns his back on many Torontonians who do come out to support Pride Toronto,” she said. “The world is changing. And the fact that Mayor Ford refuses to change or even be open to receiving this community is a clear indication of who he is, not who we are.”
Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, amazing person.
From today’s Toronto Star
Mayor Rob Ford attending to business.
“He does still surprise me and he makes me hungry to work with him and see what he does and comes up with. [The Master] was something that I came up with because I wanted to spend more time with him. We’d worked together a lot, five times. But it was never enough. It was a supporting part or something like that. It never felt like we’d gotten super dirty enough together" - Paul Thomas Anderson
