    R.I.P : Diane Ford, mother of Premier Doug Ford and former Mayor Rob Ford, dies at 85

    The matriarch of the Ford family passed away on Sunday night after a struggle with cancer.

    The Premier’s Office confirmed Diane Ford’s death in a statement, saying that she passed way in Etobicoke surrounded be her family and loved ones.

    “Mrs. Ford was an active member of her community who supported numerous charitable causes. But most of all, she was the rock for her family, especially her 10 grandchildren,” the statement reads. “The Ford family is extremely grateful for the outpouring of support from members of the community in recent weeks. The family would also like to thank Mrs. Ford’s caregivers for their compassionate care.”

    Diane Ford met Doug Ford Sr. in the early 1950s, when he was a lifeguard at the Glenview Terrace. The couple got married in 1956 and had four children—two of which followed their father’s political footsteps.

    She was often seen working in the background and standing beside her family as they embarked on business or political ventures. She helped Doug Ford Sr. with the books at Deco Labels and was also a stay-at-home mother, offering up her Etobicoke home as a gathering place for her sons’ campaign events and press conferences.

    I'm a western woman. Here is what i've learned, both in my own life and from what my girlfriends tell me.
    Women want a man that is worthy of their RESPECT. Period. It doesn't matter to most of us if you drive a fancy car, or if you're 6 feet tall or if you make a gazillion dollars. We want to respect you. As MEN.

    I don't know about her as a person, but she raised a bunch of criminals, junkies, drug dealers, and corrupt politicians that are overweight, rich, and entitled.

    I do agree with you.
    I agree with you in the fact that she undeniably raised a brood of morally corrupt, entitled criminals.

    As always you are getting confused.
    Or being intentionally disingenuous.

    But thanks for admitting that the ford gang's upbringing is indefensible.

    Then maybe you should focus those comments on the people that are fat shaming, not the people that are rightly pointing out how horrible a job this matriarch did of raising her clan.

    Remarkable woman met and spoke with her on a few occasions. A strong and proud matriarch. RIP Diane.

    I shine and rise at the same time.

    Hard to argue with you there.

    The entire family is completely whacked. The sister (forget her name) has a backstory that is stranger than fiction.

    Doug was guilty of mocking and fat shaming his younger brother and put a lot of pressure on him to lose weight when he was the mayor.
    Ironic now that he’s put on a lot of pounds in the last couple of years.

    My post was deleted?

    So I'll say it again, my condolences on the passing of the matriarch of Canada's first family.
