The Globe and Mail has an article on the pressure on Frances Nunziata, a Ford ally and speaker, to keep better control of City Council meetings. If you haven’t watched the ‘highlights’ from this week’s meetings, you should: Rob Ford and his brother behave deplorably. As speaker, Nunziata is supposed to prevent that from happening.
The tense meeting on Monday saw the mayor and his brother, Councillor Doug Ford, get into shouting matches with the crowded public gallery during a recess called by Ms. Nunziata in an attempt to calm tempers during debate. As the pair taunted their critics in the gallery, the mayor instructed his driver and security guard to videotape the crowd, sparking complaints from some councillors about intimidation.
Nunziata also made the Daily Show. She was one of the five councillors mentioned incredulously.
