What's this about?We ran the Great Pothole Challenge, where we pit Rob Ford head-to-head against a random city councillor and 311 to see who can fix a pothole the fastest. We filed all of the requests on a weekday morning so there would be an even playing field.
We called Rob Ford's office on July 14th, 2014 (that was post-rehab, pre-cancer diagnosis and well before he dropped out of the mayor's race to run for council). Neither Rob Ford nor anyone in his office bothered to call us back.
Which is odd, because a Ford would never lie to us about his commitment to customer service, right?
