Webcast Recap

Canadians and Americans look at the Rob Ford saga with a mix of amusement, curiosity, and horror. How did Ford become mayor of a sophisticated and progressive city like Toronto in the first place? And why does he continue to keep the support of a significant portion of the voting public?

Please join the Wilson Center’s Canada Institute and Public Policy Scholar Dr. Anne Golden to discuss the unique circumstances that brought about the political rise of Rob Ford and explain his ongoing appeal.
