Toronto Mayor Showcases Jamaican Accent in Ford Nation Video

Controversial Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, once again showcased his Jamaican accent in the latest episode of his weekly web series Ford Nation, called “From Jamaica with Love.” The episode posted on Thursday included a three-minute segment during which both, Ford and his brother Coun. Doug Ford, read fans’ letters about the mayor’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last month.

Almost around the end of the segment, Doug Ford read a letter from a Jamaican fan saying that “I’m a Jamaican and I just watched the Jimmy Kimmel show. I wanted to write to you to say I think he was too hard on you. A lot of his comments were just mean.” Furthermore, the councillor read that “I just wanted you to know Jamaica loves you. We need mayors and ministers like you down here, and the world needs more leaders like you. Please come and visit.” After he finished reading the letter, Doug inquired his brother if he’d ever go to Jamaica, responding to which Rob mimicked, “yeah, mon.” He added “Me, I’m goin’ to Jamaica, mon.” In addition to that, Ford brothers also read letters from their fans who had written from Nova Scotia, San Francisco and Niagara Falls.

The mayor has previously expressed his fondness of accents in January, when a cellphone video was posted to YouTube entitled “New Video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Drunk, Swearing in Jamaican Patois?” The video showed the mayor adopting a Jamaican accent while rambling at a fast-food restaurant in Etobicoke’s Rexdale neighbourhood
