I am seeing stuff about this almost every day here in the Atlanta area. I think it is funny that the shoe is on the other foot and that Canada is having such a big scandal for one of it's largest cities. Still, I would guess that the Americans on this forum are pretty jaded due to all the political scandals that we have and to us, it's just another one that will seemingly get swept under the rug. Personally, I think it great that the country many say the US should be like is no better than the US. That the people appointed him instead of electing him makes it even funnier due to there being no apparent recourse to get him out of office unlike here in the US.

There is a long history of political threads on this forum. Most are about US politics and how there is so much to dislike about US politicians and how they act. This is about a Canadian politician by a Canadian who typically likes to bash the US for not being more like Canada. That it wasn't someone from the US that made this post is a bit odd, but at least the OP did though I had considered doing so myself. he just beat me to it.

lolololol lets not get ahead of ourselves here

This thread was made as a joke so everyone can poke fun at Ford's hilarity. No need to bring your butt hurt in here from me poking fun at the US. Unlike you I can take jokes about my country and regularly make jokes about it. Relax.

Actually, yeah it is the truth. We here in the US do not lose our car or 5 digit fines for speeding (though failing to stop can bring other consequences) as Canadians do. in that regard, Canada is worse than the US.

So what you're saying is Canada is safer since maniacs on the road aren't allowed to speed? Cool!

He is awesome. Lets face it: municipal politics is lame and uninteresting at the best of times. But this, this is pure entertainment gold. It does not get better than this.

I'd say it's 50/50 that one day we find out he and his brother concocted this plan to troll us years ago. Hey, I'll get elected and then do the craziest shit possible. Then we will make a movie and cash in. Either that or it is already a 'reality' show and we just don't know it yet.

Either way it is awesome entertainment.

Albertan gets $12,000 fine for speeding and Canadian Cops Arrested 2 Motorcyclists After Finding Video Proof Of Their Wild Driving [VIDEO] are just two stories of it happening in Canada. Even here in Georgia, while there is a super speeder fine of $200 above the normal fine (maybe 4 digits if one is lucky) they do not impound cars of speeders if they stop (continuing to run is a felony and thus one is subject to losing their vehicle, if it isn't wrecked that is) when the cops pull up behind them with lights and sirens. I have lived coast to coast and border to border and I do not know of one jurisdiction in the US that takes someone's vehicle due to them speeding over 100MPH.

As it is, no one in the States is allowed to speed either, but just like in Canada, people speed though in Canada, you are likely to get the speeding ticket in the mail due to speed cameras.

they stopped doing that, at least in my province.

speed limits are also a bit lower in Canada than they are in the U.S., and we have a public health system, so it makes sense to have strong preventative measures for speeding.

How is it a bad thing to fine someone for going 263 fucking km per hour? That's insanely dangerous.

Just different sensibilities I guess

I've done 140 in a 65, people sometimes do wild and crazy things.

Such is the spice of life.

I don't need a bunch of Safety-Nazis in office checking every little thing everybody does to make sure we're all safe, if nobody got hurt then leave it alone.

Safety vs Freedom

The idea that "the people" are not the govt's property, to be coddled and "kept safe."

Canadians do want to be kept super-safe.

Americans are more lenient about safety and can accept a little more dangerous society in exchange for feeling alot less "watched" all the time.

Of course "son" but the difference is condoning that or making excuses "bu bu it makes us safe."

The difference is we spit on our government, you love yours.

Euros in general are lapdogs of their governments.

And maybe the US is like that too now, but it wasn't always.

Some of us like the way things are going, most of us don't.

A lie in what way?

We didn't have an income tax till the early 1900's or really much in the way of govt infratructure.

Look back 500 years, 1000 years, 5000 years, there's never really been government on the scale of what we see today.

Albertan gets $12,000 fine for speeding and Canadian Cops Arrested 2 Motorcyclists After Finding Video Proof Of Their Wild Driving [VIDEO] are just two stories of it happening in Canada. Even here in Georgia, while there is a super speeder fine of $200 above the normal fine (maybe 4 digits if one is lucky) they do not impound cars of speeders if they stop (continuing to run is a felony and thus one is subject to losing their vehicle, if it isn't wrecked that is) when the cops pull up behind them with lights and sirens. I have lived coast to coast and border to border and I do not know of one jurisdiction in the US that takes someone's vehicle due to them speeding over 100MPH.

As it is, no one in the States is allowed to speed either, but just like in Canada, people speed though in Canada, you are likely to get the speeding ticket in the mail due to speed cameras.

How is it a bad thing to fine someone for going 263 fucking km per hour? That's insanely dangerous.

What is the problem with someone driving at 200MPH (which is faster than 236KPH) on a deserted stretch of highway in the middle of nowhere? While I do not advocate someone trying to run 200MPH on the Downtown Connector through Atlanta, that long stretch of highway that is running straight for 20 miles out there in Texas, or Montana or Colorado or western Nebraska or out in the middle of Nowhere Alberta, why not?

While not average drivers, people run those limits at local dragways and raceways every weekend of the year in the US and without getting killed or hurt seriously. Speed itself is not inherently dangerous. Racers will race at 200MPH mere inches from a competitor (at least with series that have fenders over the wheels) without having wrecks or getting killed in them. Take a look at the Autobahn in Germany, they have an unlimited speed on it outside of the cities. People routinely driver over 100MPH there. Are there wrecks there? sure, are many people killed because of them? Not really, due to the safety of the cars (the US has similar safety regulations for cars).

It all boils down to how well someone can control their vehicles. People can have wrecks and be injured or killed at any speed. If speed was that much of a problem, then why not ban cars, especially since more deaths occur due to the automobile than firearms?

Now, as far as Rob Ford, his powers have been restricted, been stripped of his staff and budget yet promises to show up to council meetings to debate.
