International disgrace

It's not just that The Guardian is telling the world about our disgrace of a mayor (did they blow the whistle on the Montreal mayor(s)? They did not); it's not just that they file it under 'humour'; it's that they ran the article last August and are now reminding people about it in case they didn't notice before.

OTOH it's a British newspaper, so plenty of people are weighing in with Boris Johnson remarks. This is cheering. Just ignore the Torontonians slugging it out in the comments, they think they're still at the Star.
