Rob Ford *Gasp* Makes a Valid Point

“If there was a couple hundred thousand people down in Nathan Phillips Square saying they want plastic bags back, yes, then the councillors will listen,” Ford said. “But if people don’t, like I said, take action and don’t get in the councillors’ faces, it’s not going to happen. It’s up to the taxpayers. They have to be more engaged and they’re just not. It’s frustrating when stuff like this happens.”

While it's silly to suggest that a couple hundred thousand citizens take to the streets over a plastic bag ban, he is bang on re the need for greater citizen engagement. Oh and by the way Rob you better be careful what you wish for
