TORONTO – A former political aide to mayoral candidate George Smitherman said Thursday that support is growing for Rob Ford amid allegations the mayor appears in a video smoking what appears to be crack cocaine.Gee, this is all sounding strangely familiar...
Bruce Davis suggested the media is creating public sympathy for Ford by hounding him for answers.
“When I talk to people out there, they have a lot of sympathy for the mayor,” Davis said. “They don’t have a lot of sympathy for people interrupting a press conference, or challenging him in the Tim Hortons drive-thru. That doesn’t go with Canadians.”
hmm..rudely, repeatedly interrupting a press conference like The Toronto Star's Royson James did here, perhaps?
