Rob Ford on Poverty and Housing #onpoli #topoli

If you lived under a rock or came from another planet, you might be forgiven if you believed the nonsense Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is spouting about how much he cares about Toronto's poor and how shocked he is that the Ontario government won't fund his tax cuts.

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?"
