Spotted: Rob Ford on Parade

The mayor was met with cheers, heckles, and many questions from the media at the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

WHERE: St. Patrick’s Day Parade

WHEN: Sunday, March 16

WHAT: An appearance by Rob Ford at the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. The giant-green-bowtie-wearing mayor was greeted by cheers and jeers, and many questions about his recent behaviour—in particular about a video that shows the mayor stumbling, slurring his words, and swearing outside City Hall on Saturday night. When reporters repeatedly asked him about the video, he responded with “Give me a break, guys,” and “I’m here, right?” and finally, “Are you serious? Were you drinking last night? You never drink, right? You guys don’t drink.”

    To be fair, the number of parades that (a) His Worship would like to attend and (b) he has not yet been formally requested by the organizers to stay away from gets shorter by the day. He has to get his parade on where he can.

      There is always the pride parade………………oh yeah, I forgot.

    “Are you serious? Were you drinking last night? You never drink, right? You guys don’t drink.”

    Actually Mayor (LOL!) On Saturday I was watching movies and reading to my young children, spending quality weekend time with them.

    I know, you don’t watch movie and you can’t read so…………..

      Considering that the mayor’s idea of quality time is chauffeuring his children to drug deals, they’re probably better off when he’s out drinking.

        That’s just not true. Sometimes he leaves them home safe and sound with Lisi babysitting.
