Rob Ford can't catch a break.
Three days after throwing a tantrum when he was denied entry to the VIP lounge at the ACC, the hapless mayor has now been barred from marching in the Beaches Easter Parade. Ford has participated in years past but this year the organizers have decided to declare the event a "political-free zone" and are prohibiting all elected officials and candidates from marching.
Unfortunately Ford only heard about that decision on Tuesday, after he had already bought 10,000 eggs chuck at the kids. He wheeled out a comically large cart stacked with the chocolate goodies to show the media on Tuesday afternoon, and says he plans to donate them to the Lakeshore Lions Club (the Beaches Lions Club is the one that organizes the parade, however).
Ford says he's okay with not marching.
"It's for the kids, I respect the decision," he said. "When you got 10,000 eggs though, I wish they would have told me a little earlier."
