On September 12, 2014, minutes before the deadline to withdraw or enter the Toronto civic election, the Ford brothers staged a needlessly dramatic game of musical chairs straight out of an after-school special: Mayor Rob Ford, battling addictions recovery, and now a cancerous tumour in his stomach, withdrew his campaign for re-election, and his brother and campaign manager, Ward 2 councillor Doug Ford, stepped in — resigning from his re-election campaign in Ward 2 and giving his campaign spot to Rob.
Rob Ford, already not in well-enough health to act as mayor — or councillor — probably assumed he would have a sleeper victory in Etobicoke North, typically referred to as a central hub of “Ford Nation.”
But he was absolutely wrong.
Because Andray Domise is running in Ward 2.
The right candidate can beat Rob Ford, even in Ward 2. The right candidate should beat Rob Ford. Andray Domise is that candidate… Domise is the real deal. He knows his community, he knows the trouble spots within the ward, and he engages with its residents. But rather than swooping in with high-flying promises to fix individual problems as they come to the top of his call-sheet, he encourages his neighbours to work with him to make structural and cultural changes that will raise the community overall. – The Torontoist
