24 hours of Ford

Rob Ford and a city made of garbage cans at a spring cleanup announcement at City Hall Friday, April 4. Twenty-four hours later Ford was spotted half in the bag at the Leaf’s game at the Air Canada Centre, where he reportedly became belligerent when he wasn’t allowed into a private function in the Directors’ Lounge. He later ditched his company for the night, Councillor Frank Di Giorgio, for some fun at Muzik nightclub. And the beat goes on.

“At the end, common sense prevailed.”
