A quotable Rob Ford on affordable housing and the poor.
July 19, 2005: "People do not want government housing built in the city of Toronto ... they don't want more government housing that will depreciate the value of their property."
April 17, 2002: "This is an insult to my constituents to even think about having a homeless shelter in their ward. And you want me to have a public meeting to discuss this? Why don't we have a public lynching?"
