Mayor Rob Ford – Part II
More of the Mayor’s senior staff has resigned. Surprisingly, most of his staff has resigned over “unproven allegations” about his cocaine use. There is something very ominous in the air. More mysterious is the fact that senior municipal staff would resign their positions in an environment where jobs are extremely difficult to find.
For most people finding a job is a job in itself. When one has a lucrative and well-paying job one seldom forfeits the comfort of that security unless one has already been provided a safe haven.
In my past experiences as a private sector financial executive I learned quickly that employers, above all else, valued loyalty. While I was one to value job performance, employees who supported the organizational and leadership vision of the leader, generally had long tenure. In the Mayor’s case there is no visible employee loyalty, and job performance appears to be of no consequence. In difficult times both the leader and his team-members generally rally to make things better. In this case we have a surreptitious mutiny.
I am curious to know what organizations these mutineers have been employed by. There is something really sinister at play, and my hunch is that the “establishment hand” is at work. Torontonians, someone or something is going to great lengths to discredit and scar this Mayor.
Why has not this degree of vinegar been employed with our ex-Premier and the Prime Minister? What you are witnessing is the controlled corruption that exists within our political system.
