Was a funeral really the only reason Toronto mayor Rob Ford came to the Lower Mainland?
Word has it that, after the funeral, Ford got pretty well baked. On a Friday night he even jaywalked across the Lougheed Hwy. to scarf down some Chinese food. Later that evening he was reported to be whooping it up in Coquitlam's Foggy Dew pub. While there, Ford is said to have closeted himself in a staff washroom stall, emerging an hour later speaking gibberish. Maybe he spent that hour brushing up on his gibberish.
But was a funeral the only reason for Rob Ford's trip to the west coast? Or was it maybe the "pipe"? Vancouver has just introduced Canada's first crack pipe vending machine. They're only two-bits. (does anybody even use 'two bits' anymore?) Apparently the idea behind cheap, disposable crack pipes is to prevent the spread of disease. For what it's worth, there have been no reports of Rob Ford lining up with a pocket full of quarters.
