The Nature of Ford Nation   Leave a comment

City Hall in Toronto seems to be in an upheaval because of the behaviour of Mayor Rob Ford, and his brother Doug.

Some question  where their support is rooted in the City of Toronto. Toronto Star columnist Christopher Hume wrote an excellent analysis of “Ford Nation”. There are some parallels with an analysis of one group of Baby Boomers, written by Michael Adams in his book, “Stay’n Alive”. Adams labelled the group of Boomers as, “Disengaged Darwinists.”

Hume’s Column is found at:
