Super Mayor Rob Ford Saves Toronto From 10-cent TTC Fare Hike!

When announcing the proposed 2011 Budget for Toronto, Mayor Rob Ford painfully acknowledged that the TTC would be raising its fares by 10-cents in order to fulfill its bugdetary requirements, but Ford promised to do everything he could to stop the hike.

Leftist rags like the Toronto Star crucified Ford, saying that he had removed a burden from Toronto Motorists and put that burden on the TTC ridership, essentially declaring a war on transit (SOURCE: Budget: Drivers’ gain is riders’ loss), not to mention completely dismissing his claims that he was absolutely against the fare hike.

Well, after 1 day, Rob Ford announced today that the proposed 10-cent TTC Fare Hike has been scrapped, as the City found the money it needed to avoid it.

Wow, what a difference between Super Mayor Rob Ford and Useless former Mayor David Miller. It truly is refreshing to have a Mayor who actually cares about the Toronto taxpayers and who actually gets results.


PS:  For those who are interested, the artwork of Super Mayor Rob Ford used above was taken from the following YouTube video:

Ha,ha,ha,ha! Your artwork pic of Mayor Ford is

As they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words".
Jack, you should think about "trade or copy" protection of your art work. I know that I would buy a T-shirt with this pic & caption.

Maybe you should send this page to Ford's office. I think that he would get a real kick out of it. lolololol

Hi CheeMiss,

Thanks for your comment.

The "Super Mayor Rob Ford" artwork used above actually wasn't made by me, it was a screenshot taken from a video posted on YouTube by RobFordToronto at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8rVVPUuB8Q&feature=related. I believe it was one of the videos released as a part of the Rob Ford Mayoral Election Campaign.

At the end of the video, it is noted that it was produced by "Dmitri's Animation" with the following link: datube.tv.

I enjoyed the artwork as well, and I want to make sure that the artist gets their credit for it. (Especially because I would love to see more!)

I've also updated the post above to include the video in case you wanted to watch it. It's pretty entertaining if you ask me! ;)


PS: I would buy a T-shirt with that artwork as well!
