The Tragic Passing of Rob Ford


It is very sad that Rob Ford, the former mayor of Toronto, passed away from cancer today at age 46. Every single headline about it mentions his use of crack, not that he was a young man who battled cancer and leaves behind a wife and two children. He loved the city of Toronto, and his passing is tragic for his family and the people who loved him.

Mr. Ford certainly had a somewhat shady and occasionally dark history, but that doesn’t make his loss any easier for those he mattered to. I am sure a little respect would be appreciated by them. To Mr. Ford’s family, particularly his children, I am sorry for your loss. Cancer is an evil beast and he bravely fought her.

May he rest in peace and may you keep the faith.
