Someone is planning a post-Rob Ford themed party for Monday
This may end in tears.

With the city’s municipal election exactly one week away, some people understandably want to celebrate what could be the end of the Ford era in Toronto. 

“Join us as we reflect on the last Ford years, rife with drama, intrigue, videotape, crime, drugs, murder and the daily circus that has sullied our ‘New York run by the Swiss’ reputation. Celebrate with us a return to ‘business as usual, folks,’ but actually this time,” says the Facebook page for “Business as Usual, Folks”.

The street party is being held at Nathan Philips Square at 9 pm next Monday.

“Business as Usual, Folks” is the brainchild of Newmindspace, an events planning duo made up of Kevin Bracken and Lori Kufner. Bracken, a native of Long Island, New York, met Kufner while the two were both studying at the University of Toronto. Together, they’ve since thrown more than 85 free, all ages parties across North American. In Toronto, however, they’re perhaps best known their Castles in the Sky street party, which happened in 2007 and again in 2014.

With Tory leading in the polls, the party seems like a safe bet.

Of course, the whole affair could end in tears if either Rob Ford wins back his Ward 2 seat, or his brother Doug claims the mayoralty.

We’ll just have to wait and see. [Via blogTO]
