Rob Ford should not have been removed from office because the ruling was not fair, his actions was for good not evil, and i believe he should be guilty for what he have done but he doesnt deserve to be removed. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was plated guilty for Conflict of interest and was removed from office. He was plated guilty for using $3,150 of government money of transport donations for his football team. “ This entire matter began because I love to help kids play football.

I believe he should be suspended for large amount of days and or pay back the money used for his football team. Ford was a great mayor of Toronto and its deeply sad for me and family to see him gone. Even though i don’t watch the news about the government and politics, i don't think he should be removed like
