Rob Ford

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

Why him? Right now, Toronto’s cracksmok­ing, booze-pound­ing, pro­fan­i­tyspew­ing mayor is the big­gest celebrity in the coun­try. Mayor Ford is an un­wit­ting comic ge­nius — and a guar­an­teed rat­ings win­ner, should the Junos some­how man­age to en­list the na­tional em­bar­rass­ment. Why not: Even if CTV was crazy enough to ap­proach Ford and he was stupid enough to agree, there’s no way to guar­an­tee a fam­ily-friendly per­for­mance. He also has more than enough TV to watch at home. The odds: Call it a mil­lion to one, which is equal to the chance of Ford mak­ing it out of 2014 without fur­ther cre­at­ing fur­ther chaos.
