Ford Nation collapses

Where was Ford Nation Tuesday night when Toronto city council voted on the controversial 2012 city operating budget?

Where was Ford Nation inside council chambers to ram through the mayor's $20-million budget cuts to city pools, arenas, day cares, TTC service and homeless shelters?

Where was Ford Nation outside City Hall, the throngs of fiscally conservative citizens demonstrating their pro-mayor stance?

Nowhere.

Ford Nation collapsed.
