‘I want to see what’s the most they can do’


In the wake of the Danzig shooting, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford wants a meeting with the Prime Minister.

But he says the federal government has to send a message through the Criminal Code. “Three years for possession of a handgun? That’s nonsense. They should do some serious, hard time, and not come back here,” said the mayor, who promised to pressure the prime minister to lengthen the sentence. “I want to see what’s the most they can do. They can do really whatever they want because they have a majority government, and I’m going to put pressure on them because it’s affecting our city more than any other city in Canada.”

I’m told Ford’s office has asked for a meeting and the Prime Minister’s Office is working to schedule one.
