Anti Rob Ford Campaign Sign

Anti-Rob Ford campaign posters pop up in Toronto

Vote Jeff McElroy - he'll still smoke himself into a stupor, but promises he won't use crack cocaine. Three spoof campaign signs that appeared in Trinity Bellwoods Park this morning are promising a new kind of awful mayor, albeit one who's marginally more benign than the incumbent.

No Ford Nation, a non-profit group that claims to be independent of any city hall campaign, says their fictional candidates - if these people are serious about making a run for mayor, they haven't filed nomination papers yet - will keep drinking (in private,) smoking (but only pot), and urinating all over the city (but on the sly).

The group also released a series of three cartoons late last week set to real Rob Ford audio.

Here's a slice of the online reaction to the signs.
