Councillor Doug Ford beat the byelection drums again Tuesday despite the fact his brother the mayor is in the midst of an appeal to save his job.

“Rob Ford has stopped the spending down here and we want to carry on the mandate for another two years,” Ford said.

“The people of this city should decide on who is going to be running this city, not politicians, not judges, not generals, but the people of Toronto should be deciding who our leader is to continue on stopping the gravy train that we’ve put a halt on.”

Ford dismissed the cost of a byelection, which has been pegged at anywhere between $7 million and $15 million.

“What price are you going to tell the people of Toronto (is) democracy?” he asked.
