Mayor Rob Ford’s 2 p.m. Arrival at 330 University Avenue Courthouse – Monday November 19 2012


Exactly at 2 p.m., Toronto Mayor Rob Ford arrived at 330 University Avenue driving his Cadillac Escalade.

A Porsche was illegally parked in-between the two yellow signs immediately in front of the Courthouse steps. Consequently, Mayor Ford wasn’t able to slip his SUV into this two car length designated drop-off and pick-up spot.

He may have preferred it that way. The afternoon session of what everyone now calls FordCourt2 was beginning upstairs, and he wouldn’t have had anything to say to the cameras anyway.

I tweeted the above six photos resulting in a few mild replies.

Two hours later, at 4 p.m., I posted the video. Then the replies became more interesting . . .
