Mayor Ford Casts Ballot in ‘Not Very Good’ Condition

Outgoing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford seemed pretty exhausted when he made a rare appearance to cast his ballot at an advance poll soon after undergoing his second round of chemotherapy. Ford looked flushed, sweating and moved slowly after arriving at Kingsway Presbyterian Church in Etobicoke to vote at one of the city’s advance polls on Tuesday morning. The mayor took an elevator after casting his ballot, instead of the stairs, and exited the church basement.

Upon inquiry by reporters waiting outside of the church about how was he feeling, Mr. Ford confessed that he is “not very good.” Having said that, Mr. Ford still managed to grab the opportunity and came out to vote for his brother Doug, who has replaced him in the mayoral election as Ford was diagnosed with cancer just days before the registration deadline in September. Mr. Ford reiterated his support for Doug, stating that “my brother is going to be the best mayor this city has ever had.”

In addition to that, Mr. Ford also disregarded numerous endorsements gathered by John Tory and said that it will not matter in the end. He explained that “the only thing that matters is the people that come out and vote on election day,” adding that “that’s the people that supported us last time and will support us again. So, we’re going to do very well. I’m very confident Doug will be the next mayor.” Conclusively, Ford said he has to stay focused on his battle against cancer, alleging that “I just gotta take care of my health.”
