I'm pretty well-connected to people in municipal politics here and have some friends who are political aides and the like with city councillors, and I should definitely ask them what they think of the Natalie Glebova flap.
They probably agree with the Toronto Sun... that Toronto is being run by idiots. And David Miller, well, he sure looks like a fool in office. He claims he didn't know about this but I'm sure the Donald or somebody in that Miss Universe organization let him know about this after the fact.
Before Miller came to office Toronto at least was making attempts to be a world-class city, but now the city is an international joke. Thanks to this snub of Natalie Glebova. It makes Toronto look like an uptight city that doesn't like to have fun. All these Miss Universe-obsessed Latin Americans have to be laughing at Toronto now for this silly affair. I know it was some bureaucrat's fault for kicking her out of Nathan Phillips Square but still, this happened under Miller's watch.
By the way, the Sun likes Miss Universe now. They finally put her on the front page. They know a good story when they see it.
The city may be run by idiots but at least that paper isn't.
