Toronto prepares to say goodbye to Rob Ford on Wednesday
Toronto is about to bury its own special superstar.
Perhaps not everybody’s superstar. There’s nobody more polarizing than the one-and-only Rob Ford.
There’s no middle ground. Love him or hate him. Take your pick.
But it’s kind of hard to hide the thousands of people who came out to City Hall over the past two days for the public visitation for the former mayor.
I wonder how they counted, clicker? selfie? "Ford Nation" flags given out by Dougie's little helpers? $20 bills? Of course I mostly wonder why they want a count, are the numbers to see if they do better than Ford Festers or just to know the amount of hotdogs, hamburgers, etc. for the wrap party?
It's like root canal gone bad. But try to relax, one more day and the discomfort will be over. Then it will be just Doug, everywhere, all the time.The news coverage is making me seriously question if I'm actually just living deep in a coma or life is happening this way.
Ctv will have live coverage all over the place, interviewed a woman who came from NS because it was "the right thing to do", and they spoke of the "so-called" crack video like it wa me some fantasy that I wasn't present to see with my own eyes lol.
I'm so embarrassed for the loss of my city.
