Rob Ford Debate: Toronto Mayor Is Butt of the Joke as Crowd Laughs

By    |   Friday, 05 Sep 2014 06:44 AM

Rob Ford, the embattled Toronto mayor who's reportedly on the straight and narrow after a stint in rehab, was the butt of the joke this week when a crowd of business people laughed at him repeatedly during a debate. 

He returned fire by calling the crowd "elitist," The Associated Press reported.

The scandal-plagued mayor became an international celebrity last year after he acknowledged using crack in a "drunken stupor" after months of denials. Ford returned to work June 30 after a two-month rehab stint for drug and alcohol abuse. His behavior embarrassed many residents of Canada's largest city.

Ford took part in a debate at the Toronto Region Board of Trade on Thursday. When John Tory, a candidate running to replace Ford in the Oct. 27 election, poked holes into some of Ford's arguments the crowd laughed mockingly at Ford.

Ford later said "they can laugh all they want. I have a proven track record of success."
