Rob Ford's Unconditional Surrender.


This just in, from Tim Alamenciak of the TStar:

Mayor Rob Ford has issued a second and more extensive apology to Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale for comments made by the mayor during a televised interview with Conrad Black.

Dale has accepted the mayor’s apology and will no longer pursue a defamation lawsuit against Ford.

“I sincerely appreciate Mayor Ford’s complete retraction and unqualified apology, and I’m very glad the truth is no longer in dispute. I won't be taking legal action against the mayor, and I’m looking forward to getting back to work.”...


Wonder what will happen to all that IndieGoGo cash that was, purportedly, being raised to help the  poverty-stricken Mr. Ford deal with 'nuisance'  lawsuits now?

After all, it is only $46,696 short of it's $50,000 goal, which must be reached in 19 hours.

You can read Mr. Ford's entire 'letter of apology' that most definitely was NOT delivered/read out loud by the mayor on television....Here...I suggest Mr. Dale keep a copy for posterity (and/or until the next time Mr. Ford starts making stuff up, which he clearly states in the letter that he did do in Mr. Dale's case, about a reporter again).

The Letter from Rob Ford is on Toronto City Stationary?????

Why not something more personal, his home stationary?

And why isn't it notarized?

After all, how do we now this wasn't actually written by some other guy named Ford?

Rob, or otherwise.

Looks like he lawyered up.

I do not disagree.

(and it looks like, now, that Vision TV has as well)
