C.O.T.A. Powers of Council & Mayor

Deremigi's Blog

March 6, 2014

I think it’s worth recalling the 2010 election that made Mr.Ford mayor of Toronto and the many who expected that his term would be a full four years from December 1, 2010 to December 1, 2014 and who might not have expected that the councillor they’d voted for might one day  replace him. Mr Ford recently stated in a television clip that 383, 501 people voted for him, nearly 100,000 votes more than the favoured Mr.Smitherman surprising everyone including me. I was also surprised by the flyer I received in my Scarborough walk-to-mail box shortly after the election asking me to join a campaign to oust the new mayor by putting Twitter comments Online. At that point all I knew about Mr. Ford was that before being elected I saw him on television as councillor speaking to council and that he’d been stopped by traffic police in…

Video Doubts

July 26, 2014

Even after rehab the 2013 Mayor Ford video has not been seen by anyone but the New York City Gawker reporter and the Toronto Star reporters, and I forgot Police Chief Blair’s officer some time in 2013. Now talk of the video has receded with emphasis on Mayor Ford’s refusal to support world pride. Stories about Mayor Ford and crack, mostly old ones keep popping up online as though the drug culture had just started, or didn’t exist. Not even his possible alcoholism can put an end to the phrase “smoking crack” as WASALive or a 2013 National Post article puts it.

The following statements which include a December 5 Citynews header stating that “Mayor Ford may have tried to buy…” a hear say, not publicly available video appears in peterderemigis search results headed “Mayor Ford may have tried to buy crack video,..” My introductory comments based on the use of may in that header are the point of my post of Dec. 6. Firstly the word may ambiguously implies the factual existence of the video without substantiating evidence such as the physical, publicly verifiable video itself. The term may factually applies only to suggestions that the mayor was not certain that the video actually exists and to date its existence is based only on here say.

It’s too bad the CTV header below doesn’t quote the document as evidence to prove that

“WASALive” appears at the top of peterderemigis page 2 search results, this morning of July 25, 2014:

“WASALive’s” file header is “smoking crack” a phrase taken from the first sentence of the The Toronto Star file Online following “Rob Ford video scandal: A timeline” that resulted from my daily mayor ford Google search on July 23, 2014.

“WASALive” files have until today popped up near the top of peterderemigis Google search results the instant my blogger.com files are published, even before they register Google page views, not even “WASALive’s” view is recorded as though “WASALive”has direct access to whatever is put out on blogger.com . This “smoking crack” file is uncharacteristically late when Wasalive has till now gotten to my publishings as though they knew precisely when I’d written and published them.

Putting “smoking crack” as a header in peterderemigis Google search results and quoting the phrase with some of the Toronto Star contextual sentence “may have been captured on video smoking crack” falsifies the purpose of my July 23 article by associating peterderemigis with the Toronto Star’s political hatchetry.

Privacy rights and anti spam legalities are ignored as well. Who’s to notice, who’s to speak after the well received firing of Mayor Ford by COTA-superventing Toronto city councillors nullified the will of the electorate; and the mayor, no legalist himself, silently succumbed.

Here’s a bit of news from the Toronto Star news paper Online that appears on page one of Google search results for mayor ford on July 23, 2014, pm.
