Here’s a Video of Mayor Rob Ford Helping Hazel McCallion Catch a Fish

Two GTA mayors reel in one fish.

The backstory here, according to the Sun, is that Mayor Rob Ford and Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion both went on a Lake Ontario fishing expedition on Thursday as part of the Great Ontario Salmon Derby. After six hours of fishing (on a Thursday? Did they go home afterward and get a little mayoring in before bed?) there was a nibble on one of the boat’s rods, and McCallion, who is 92 years old, went to reel in the catch.

The 16-pound salmon on the other end of the line turned out to be a fighter, and that’s how we ended up with this video of Ford cradling McCallion in his arms like a small, wrinkly child. It’s actually a very sweet scene, and it reflects well on Ford, who by most accounts is a genuinely helpful guy, one-on-one.

On the other hand, nobody has ever accused the mayor of not being willing to help out his friends—though he has been accused of having some friends who are beyond help.

    Is that Fantino in the white curling sweater getting in on things?

  • Dogma

    That was a pretty sweet scene. (Still not going to vote for him. But a sweet scene.)

    Thats awesome they reeled in a weathered boot.
    Nevermind, thats just Hazel.

  • Percival B

    Looks like a cabbage patch kid holding a dried apple doll.

    Who is the sycophantic fart-catcher in the red hat and blue jacket who is desperately trying to get in the limelight, yet completely ignored?

  • Steveinto

    Should he not be at work? Nice to have a job were you can slack off and go out to play all day.

    Who else fishes in a suit?

    I would want Rob Ford on my side of a tug-of-war.

    Based on the ministry of the environment guide, depends on if it was a Chinook or a Coho. Chinnook good to eat once a month, unless you are child bearing. Coho….don’t eat.

    Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, /
    A tale of a fateful trip
    That started from this… suburban port
    Aboard this tiny ship…

  • Punned_It

    Hate to mention it, but if you look at where Rob’s hands are – that’s not her waist.
