“Minutes after Mayor Rob Ford arrived at a contentious community council meeting on Tuesday evening, he bolted out of his seat, sprinted up an aisle, and left the building — to wander around the parking lot and slap “Rob Ford Mayor” fridge magnets on the doors of cars.
When a reporter told Ford that some people might find his behaviour strange, he retorted that some people find the reporter strange. Magnets in hand, he made no further comment.
The mayor slowed down only twice — once to calmly address the reporters who followed him, once to shout urgently to aide David Price for more magnets, his arms outstretched.
Price [Ford’s Director of Operations] scoffed at the suggestion that Ford should be attending the meeting-in-progress rather than circling the parking lot.
‘He can do whatever he wants. Putting magnets on a community event — what do you expect him to be, up on stage?’ Price said.”
