More bureaucrats have sprung into action after an alternative newsweekly poked fun at a powerful politician.
Toronto-based NOW revealed that city staff have "received a directive telling them to 'remove and dispose' all copies" of the paper from all city premises.
The order came from the mayor's office.
This comes after the weekly publication put a photo-shopped image of a nearly nude Mayor Rob Ford on the inside. The cover had him in boxers.
The story's headline was "The naked truth about Rob Ford".
"We are outraged," editor and CEO Alice Klein declared. "Rob Ford does not want Torontonians to know the naked truth."
Last year, the Washington state ferry operator ordered the removal of the Seattle Weekly following publication of a cover of Senator Patty Murray dressed in pork.
The ferries spokesperson later offered "regrets" for doing this.
Meanwhile, B.C. Ferries has never allowed distribution of alt-weeklies, including the Georgia Straight, on its vessels.
That negated any need to remove copies of the Straight for its caricatures of former premier Gordon Campbell, including a 2003 image depicting him wearing a dildo.
This cartoon was published after B.C. Liberal government tried to impose a $250,000 annual tax on the Straight in connection with publication of free listings promoting charitable, arts, music, health, and other events.
