Ford not fooling anyone

Ford pushes for ‘fresh start’ at emergency TCHC meeting - The Globe and Mail
As you know, Rob Ford, Toronto's new mayor, is trying to circumvent the democratic procedures in place around how the TCHC board members become members or are removed. He wants to appoint his lackey Case Ootes to rule the TCHC in place of the democratically elected board. He wants to tear it all down before a proper investigation happens to determine the facts.

   When Mr. Ford, during his opening speech, called the meeting “democracy in process,” the crowd burst out laughing.

The "crowd" in question was mainly TCHC tenants, concerned about what is happening with their board members.

Mr. Ford, you are not fooling anyone.
