Scene: A Final Celebration of Rob Ford’s Life

Hundreds gathered in Etobicoke to remember the former mayor.

WHERE: Toronto Congress Centre, 650 Dixon Road

WHEN: Wednesday, March 30

WHAT: In what could have been mistaken for another instalment of Ford Fest, hundreds of Torontonians showed up in Etobicoke to celebrate Rob Ford one last time. There were few sombre faces at the Toronto Congress Centre, where Ford launched his 2010 mayoral campaign, as supporters touting Ford Nation shirts and flags remembered the Ward 2 councillor. Amid a slideshow of Ford photos and selfies with the family, brother Doug Ford promised to keep Ford Nation going in Rob’s memory. Ford passed away on March 22, and was laid to rest Wednesday afternoon.
