You don’t know whether to laugh or to cry

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.

  1. “They were being very disruptive. Their behaviour was just awful. … It was the worst I’d ever seen in the council chambers in all the years I’ve been involved,” Ms. Nunziata said, arguing that even if she took the “extreme” step of ejecting the Fords, she doubted they would have left the chamber willingly.

    ^^^ So because they wouldn’t have left willingly they can’t be ejected? That comment alone underscores Nunziata’s shortcomings as speaker. She doesn’t have the will to enforce appropriate conduct from the brothers Ford – and so the rest of council and the public are subject to their boorish behaviour.

    ……..and she doesn’t hesitate to eject citizens from the chamber…..

    ….from the globe and mail

    Typical nunziata……
