article imageRob Ford to remain Toronto Mayor after stay granted

By Andrew Moran     Dec 5, 2012 in Politics
Toronto - Justice Gladys Pardu granted Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's application Wednesday to stay at city hall until he has his appeal heard and decided. The appeal hearing is scheduled for Jan. 7 and a decision will be made weeks later.
For the next several weeks, the mayor will hold onto his seat in council. His application, put forward by lawyer Alan Lenczner at the Divisional Courts, was not being opposed by Paul Magder, the original complainant, and his lawyer, Clayton Ruby.
Immediately following the ruling, Ford told reporters that he was “very glad I got the stay today.” He also noted that he “can’t wait for the appeal.”
Pardu stated that “serious issues” have to be decided upon during the appeal process.
If the mayor’s appeal fails then the decision, which is up to city council, is to hold a by-election or appoint an interim mayor until the 2014 mayoral election. Ford has vowed to run in the next electoral process.
