And what about Ford's main rival in the mayoral contest, George Smitherman?
Arthur Smitherman, George's brother is, like Doug Ford, also running for city council. That's not all Arthur Smitherman and Doug Ford have in common. Like Doug Ford, George Smitherman's brother Arthur is also backing Rob Ford.
“I’ve got nothing against my brother,” Arthur said in an interview Wednesday..“The only reason I’m supporting Rob Ford is his policies. I think they’re right for Toronto.”In fairness to George, Arthur sounds a few McNuggets short of a Happy Meal on other issues, like global conspiracy theories, but still, his own brother?
Now that says something.
