Netflix (in Canada, at least) is missing a lot more than Gilmore Girls.

Isn’t his official title now “the Crack-Smoking Mayor of Toronto”? That’s what he’s called whenever I see anything about him on TV.

Also, Voyage of the Damned is not a classic.

It’d be nice if His Crackness would just give the city a present by stepping down once and for all.

Ack, hope that’s sorted out quickly.

And the Mayor looks like he’d burn well if you need fuel.

Calling either “The Doctor, The Witch and the Wardrobe ” or “Voyage of the Damned” good episodes makes me worried that you’re suffering from hypothermia in the icy wasteland of Toronto and it’s impairing your higher brain functions.

(The Next Doctor is also terrible, but it’s kind of endearing too so it rings less warning bells.)

I am going to assume the power outage is also why we aren’t celebrating No Doubtmas this year?

Well, if you can’t trust the judgment of an alcoholic crack smoker, what can you trust?

Is there some context that I’m missing that makes the failure to declare a state of emergency make ANY sense at ALL? It seems, from my United Statesian perspective, to be the sort of behavior that can only be explained by assuming that he just asks himself “what is the dumbest possible thing I could do?” and then doing something dumber.

City Council removed all of the mayor’s emergency powers back in November, but they couldn’t remove his power to declare an emergency (that’s a matter of provincial statute). Rob Ford didn’t declare a state of emergency because then someone else (specifically, the Deputy Mayor) would definitively be in charge.
