With Mary Walsh’s early morning ambush on Toronto Mayor Ford which terrified his 5-year-old child still fresh in our mind, this version of the trick is actually funny!
The thing that gets me is how good a sport Mr. Ford is about the whole thing. It casts him in a vastly different light than the CBC commentary – which had subsequently been proven to be an outright lie.
On the one hand – a bunch of ‘professional’ journalists from CBC tell an outright lie (that Mr. Ford called the 9-1-1 operators ‘bitches’). On the othe hand – a Mayor who proves he has a sense of humour, even about himself…
Hmmm…. Form your own conclusions!
