Assault is a Criminal Offense
According to the Criminal Code of Canada, assault is a criminal offense.
The Toronto Police have yet to arrest Rob Ford for anything, but he can be removed from office if found guilty of a criminal offense.
And Rob Ford committed assault against Pam McConnell, a City of Toronto Councilor.
If this doesn’t come to an end for Rob Ford, there will most certainly be issues in Toronto in the days to come.
So … Step One: Kathleen Wynne must declare that all municipal (and ideally provincial voting) is to be based on Ranked Ballot so that Torontonians get a mayor they deserve.
Step two: Rob Ford is removed from office pending criminal charges for assault.
Step Three: Election.
This is not a coup d’etat. This is incarceration.
