The Liberal Ontario government may take action to give the Toronto City Council the tools to deal with an increasingly frightening Mayor Rob Ford.
An admitted liar and purchaser of illegal drugs, Ford has now lost the support of most Councillors, the Toronto Argonauts, the Santa Claus Parade, and, of course, the Toronto Chief of Police, Bill Blair.
It was Blair who set off the current fury with his revelation that the police are in possession of the now infamous video that seems to show Ford smoking crack cocaine.
The Mayor and his very few remaining allies have acted as though Chief Blair somehow has it in for Ford.
Ford and his team certainly treat the relationship with the cops as an adversarial one.
