The Canadian Press reports that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford got a ticket for jaywalking in a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia on Friday.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
1. Meanwhile on Friday, Bill Maher, on Real Time asked a Canadian politician why Canada had suddenly become less boring, following recent Rob Ford and Justin Bieber scandals. Did the RCMP know about this and give Rob Ford a boring ticket intentionally, to restore Canada’s boring image?
2. Were horses involved in this shakedown? Because, hey RCMP, we don’t care what anybody says, if you are giving tickets to a big city mayor while mounted on horses, that is not boring in our books! That is a few steps away from a Kentucky Derby breaking out, and we are not betting on any horse named Mayor Ford.
3. Or were the tickets given from a popular Canadian police vehicle, the Ford Crown Victoria? Ford getting a ticket from a Ford? And the ticket is for walking and not driving and reading (which the mayor has been known to “probably” do)? That’s also not boring. Canada, you’re still exciting.
And the question that I have is whether Mayor Ford had walked all the way from Toronto to the Vanvouver suburb under the influence of drugs.
Seems consistent with his strict exercise regimen.
