Rob Ford gets his party on in B.C.

Blurry photos, awful filters, snatched seconds of dance-floor action - it must be another controversial Rob Ford night out, this one in a Coquitlam, B.C. bar while in town to attend a memorial service for a family friend.

The photos began to appear when Ford and long-time friend and former logistics director David Price were ticketed $109 each by an RCMP officer at a busy intersection for disobeying a pedestrian sign, Global News reports.

Ford is in British Columbia with Price to attend the funeral of Price's mother.

Ford told the Toronto Sun's Joe Warmington that he was "speechless" and "perplexed" by the tickets, which he called "a waste of taxpayer's money." Ford said the pair were heading to a Chinese restaurant when the incident occurred and denied the pair were intoxicated.

Pictures that appear to be taken later that night show the mayor on the dance-floor, posing with drinkers at The Foggy Dew, an Irish-themed pub a five-minute walk from where the tickets were issued.

Here are the highlights, if you can call them that.
