Photos: Rob Ford kindly poses for photographs during a quick trip through Vancouver
Rob Ford wasn’t in Vancouver for more than a few hours before he encountered a minor brush with local law enforcement.
The Toronto mayor well-known for cutting loose was ticketed by RCMP officers Friday evening (January 31). Ford was not reprimanded for public intoxication, as initially reported.
“He said, ‘I f’d up boys. I was just trying to cross the red light here, and this ‘B’ stopped me,’” a witness reportedly told Global News.
Ford was in Vancouver for a memorial service.
He was also caught enjoying a bit of a night on the town, as a deluge of photos posted to Metro Vancouver residents’ social-media accounts purport to show.
The Straight has not confirmed the authenticity of these images or the accuracy of the descriptions posted by their owners.
Here’s a selection of pictures that have gone viral, most of which state they were captured at the Foggy Dew Irish Pub in Coquitlam.
