I tried hard to make this commentary about anything but Rob Ford.
But the events seem to change almost by the hour making it hard not to have your show railroaded by another new occurrence.
Yesterday it was another video and another apology saying he was ‘very, very inebriated’ followed by another ‘I’m very, very, sorry’, and ‘it won’t happen again’.
But no reasoning or explanation after that.
It’s obvious to all he needs medical attention and counseling, before it’s too late.
But that seems even more distant now when they rolled out his mother and sister (and former addict) yesterday to be interviewed.
Do we really need any more players in this cast?
The mother did admit Rob had a problem. However it is with his weight, nothing else, saying if he gets that in order he’ll be fine.
Again, sadly trying to distract from the real issues at hand.
Perhaps filling the role that seems to be vacant with Doug Ford absent since Rob admitted to smoking crack, after Doug crudely demanded the police chief step down.
Hopefully we won’t be talking about this on Monday, but that’s up to the Ford family.
I’m Scott Thompson.
