There are no words left

This is so, so awful. As I read it, I kept wondering about those kids. Horrific.



  1. Iris Mclean says:

    Yup. At this point it’s the kids I worry about. I really hope the CAS is involved.

    • debs says:

      indeed, but considering the police let him drive around wildly drunk and gave him a pass, my guess is CAS will also be stopped from any involvement. Money and power buy you alot of freedom. I just wish Renata would pick herself up and get moving, away from such abuse. Her self esteem has to be nil, and she so obviously needs help to.

    Wow, an article that almost makes me feel sorry for Lisi and Bellissimo. Almost. Sounds like it was Bellissimo who gave the story to the Star, unless it was Harry Potter wearing an invisibility cloak. If I were Bellissimo, I’d be looking for a way to become invisible right about now.

  3. Bruce A says:

    I’m pretty sure Children’s Aid would have stepped in long ago if this was someone with a different name.

  4. Jacob says:

    Looks like the kids are out of the equation, and soon Renata will be too.

  5. Bernie Farber says:

    I was in another life, a CAS Protection Worker. Did that job for almost ten years. If we were to have received a report such as this there would be an immediate intervention. Have to believe CAS Toronto is involved. If not it would be scandalous.

  6. que sera sera says:

    Why the surprise that this less-than-honourable man, who publicly & repetitively says and does less-than-honourable things, also harbours less-than-honourable views about humanity at large and his nuclear family in particular?

    Ford exemplifies the butt ugly reality of unfettered patriarchal/ideological entitlements with all the embarrassing, obscene & criminal excesses that entails.

    And yet the “threat” posed by a woman with legally uncovered breasts at a public demonstration warranted her forcible removal by police from the public square???!!!

    There are plenty of words left to express the depths of the hypocrisy running amok within our “modern” democracy. None of which have anything to do with a civic election.

    Rob Ford thinks he is Jim Belushi with police protection proving that repeated viewings of “Animal House” is not a good omen for a gag “leader. 🙂

  8. debs says:

    not that he is a stellar example of human compassion, but perhaps Doug Ford could take in the kids, and hire a nanny, until Mr and Mrs Ford work their shit out.
    The kids do deserve better and if the family is soo keen on being tightknit, its the one thing they could do that would be appropriate. Renata cant be fit to be a single parent, and Ford needs to find a way to reinvent his life without alcohol and mobsters.

    • Iris Mclean says:

      You are joking, right?

      • debs says:

        its really hard for caseworkers to take kids away, but when other family members step out to the plate it seems like its more likely in this case. I cannot see rob ford or his family allowing CAS to take those kids. I dont like the fords but for all purposes the doug ford family seems a major step out then what they have now and they would be close with cousins and grandma. I mean are any of the fords great people ….no….but think about how many families of addicts have other family members step up to the plate. Dysfunctional as all might be, Doug doesnt seem to be a crack addict or an alcoholic. Renata and Rob wont be fit for awhile.
        and really how likely is it for a foster family to get those kids, next to nil. Wealthy families pay for the privilege of keeping their kids out of the system.

  9. david ray says:

    Warren, there are SIX words left. Mayor Ford. You are under arrest.

  10. Paul Brennan says:

    got to feelk for the kids…but unfortunately there are many who are being subject to very dysfunctional situations…action is required

    “We should never permit ourselves to do anything that we are not willing to see our children do”

  11. Harvey Bushell says:

    If Ford manages to get booked for any future mayoral debates, assuming he gets out of alleged rehab, isn’t arrested, hasn’t died and/or doesn’t pull out of the race, ALL of the other candidates should refuse to appear with him and most importantly say why.. because he’s a violent lying degenerate homophobic racist.

    Dear God.
