Rob Ford to remain Toronto’s mayor as court overturns ruling ordering him out

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been spared his job by a panel of Divisional Court judges that overturned a ruling he should be tossed out of office over a breach of the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.

Regional Senior Justice Edward Then, Justice Katherine Swinton and Justice Lynne Leitch disagreed with a lower court decision that Mr. Ford broke the law designed to keep elected officials from exerting influence on decisions that could benefit them financially.

Mr. Ford’s transgression occurred almost a year ago, when he voted to rescind a council resolution requiring him to repay $3,150 in donations to his football foundation, after the integrity commissioner found he improperly used city resources to solicit funds.
