It seems as though drivers (not) sharing Gerrard Street with me this morning have taken Rob Ford’s hate speech seriously. I lost count of the number of cars who sped by me with a couple inches to spare, scaring the hell out of me and resolving me to work even harder on the “mission statement” [...]
