Councillor Josh Matlow

Statement on Mayor Ford’s regrettable comments

Thank you to the many residents who have written to me regarding the Mayor’s regrettable comments yesterday.


It is unfortunate that Mayor Ford decided to use such an offensive comparison during a radio interview. I hope that he takes the time to learn more about the reprehensible individual he compared his colleagues to and realizes why it was inappropriate.


My focus continues to be on working respectfully with fellow councillors from every political perspective on a realistic and responsible transit plan, finding solutions for those seeking affordable housing, removing Toronto from the Ontario Municipal Board’s purview, protecting tenants from escalating rents and tackling gridlock while serving the residents of my community every day.


I hope that Mayor Ford will decide to join the rest of Council in discussing how we can move forward with these important issues, along with many others, together.
