A Rob Ford re-election victory in October would be the best thing possible for Canadian democracy. What better way to show our voting system is joke than to have an international laughing stock put back in office against the will of voters?
Fact is Ford is a largely-harmless buffoon considering the mayor of a city does not have absolute corrupt power unlike a prime minister or premier with a fake majority.
If people want to think of real pain, just imagine the Cons coming back to power for another decade in 2017 after bringing down an opposition minority government that formed in 2015.
Fact is, with 3-way center-left vote-splitting awarding the Cons dozens of center-left ridings, that's what's likely to happen — especially if Jim Prentice becomes leader.
Without voting reform, a united Conservative party is Canada's natural governing party. And that's no laughing matter.
