What doesn't kill Rob Ford makes him stronger
Six weeks ago Rob Ford seemed to be a dead mayor walking.
After countless near political death experiences, Ford's mayoral obituary appeared to be shaping up as he faced crack cocaine allegations, his staff were being fired or fleeing, and some councillors publicly called on him to step aside.
Fast forward to the last week of June and Rob Ford getting mobbed at the Tim Hortons across from City Hall, posing for photos with customers and staff before slowly making his way through Nathan Phillips Square and getting swarmed with more photo requests.
