2. Very much

Though at the municipal level, people aren't running under party banners, he is a very right-wing sort of guy. After a proposal by Mike Harris, Toronto was amalgamated, which means that all the suburban communities (Etobicoke, Oakville, Scarborough, North York) were made part of the "Greater Toronto Area" or GTA. If you look at the voting maps for the most recent mayoral election, all of the amalgamated cities voted for Ford, and he was overwhelmingly voted against by the city of Toronto proper. Unfortunately, those communities outnumber the Toronto core. His last election message was simple and spoke to the pocket books of suburban commuters. He was going to stop "the gravy train" at city hall, and bring back respect for the taxpayer. Unfortunately we discovered that he was indeed going to stop the gravy train... right at his desk so that he can tuck in.
