It's weird to laugh at lefties hating on Rob Ford. Everyone capable of rational thought who is familiar with him hates him, not just lefties.
At any rate, smoking crack is hardly the worst thing Ford has done.
It's only weird if you leave out the rest of my statement...which you did.
Also, mayor of LA is Villaraigosa, mayor of London is Boris Johnson. I'm Canuck and knew both of those without Google. I will admit I do not know who the mayor of Paris is.
However, GTA is equivalent to the NYC of Canada. Given the situation (neighbors, high interaction, similar cultural backgrounds, shared history from the time of settlement) I do not think it's asking too much of an informed person in the US to know who the mayor of GTA is.
