I think Doug Ford just challenged Margaret Atwood to run for political office. From The Toronto Sun:
Councillor Doug Ford blasted Canadian literary icon Margaret Atwood Tuesday for waging her online campaign to spare Toronto Public Library from any cuts.
“Well, good luck to Margaret Atwood, I don’t even know her, if she could walk by me I wouldn’t even have a clue who she is,” Ford told reporters on Tuesday. “But she’s not down here, she’s not dealing with the problems and if she did, tell her to go run in the next election and get democratically elected and we’d be more than happy to sit down and listen to Margaret Atwood.”
Do it for the libraries, Peggy! Atwood 4 Mayor!
(And if you still haven’t signed the Our Public Library petition to help save the Toronto Public Library, do it now!)
