Rob Ford "Missing" posters spotted in Toronto

Posted by Derek Flack / May 6, 2014

Rob Ford MissingEarlier today we asked "where in the world is Rob Ford?" -- apparently we're not the only ones wondering. Spotted at Adelaide and Peter earlier today is this rather perfect poster asking after the mayor's whereabouts. It reads: "Pink face, spherical body, alarmingly sweaty. Last seen wearing an ill-fitting suit and football tie. Answers to Rob, Coach, or Mr. Mayor."

OK, the sweaty remark is a bit below the belt, but it's hard to argue about the accuracy of the description. While there's speculation that Ford might be doing his rehab stint at a Guelph facility, no one really knows (and the Ford camp isn't telling). Yet, miraculously, the city is running just fine in his absence. Who would have thought that? Pfft.

Thanks to @jasegiles for the tip and photo.



Simon Tarses / May 6, 2014 at 01:53 pm
Why should anybody care? He's headed off to rehab (hopefully) and he won't be mayor again due to him spending that time in rehab taking him out of the running, so it's all good that he's 'missing' and can't be found; let's all just let him stay, and be, lost.
bernie Q / May 6, 2014 at 02:05 pm
I think the assumption that he is in a rehab facility is anecdotal at this stage... Especially when it's regarding a bullheaded narcissistic guy like Ford.
1. His 'style' is do bad, lie about it, then angrily vaguely admit, but do nothing to change.
There is a 50% chance he could be laying low until he can pop his head back and claim his prize belt back in the ring....
Sharky / May 6, 2014 at 02:08 pm
How can Rob Ford be missing for so long? How can he go unnoticed for even a day.... lol
TMZ Generation replying to a comment from bernie Q / May 6, 2014 at 02:09 pm
EXACTLY so who cares. Move onto the other candidates and what they've got offer. Ohh I see they have no gossip or scandals so you're not interested in them at all.
mark / May 6, 2014 at 02:16 pm
The Toronto media has dined out on Ford stories for the past year or more so now with him 'missing' they have to work for other stories to fill their papers. The Toronto media needed Ford and his antics. That they continue to hound him despite him being in rehab shows how desperate they are.
Donna / May 6, 2014 at 02:17 pm
What a waste of paper and ink. Eventually this sign will be on the road as trash. What waste of resources.
MER1978 replying to a comment from mark / May 6, 2014 at 02:21 pm
If the Fords weren't massive liars and it was believable based on the information we've been given that he's actually in rehab there wouldn't be much reason to "hound" him.
tammy terrific / May 6, 2014 at 02:22 pm
His family calls him "Robbie".
Big lying oaf.
Jennie / May 6, 2014 at 02:22 pm
Why is it okay to refer to his pink face or spherical body. The people who think that's somehow funny - are you by chance offended by any of Ford's racist or bullying talk? How is this different? It's so easy for people to get on their high horse when talking about Rob Ford, but seriously... what's up with the classless and unnecessary rudeness and unkind words about physical attributes. Go ahead: "It's okay because..." "This is different because..." Convince yourself!
Valentino Assenza / May 6, 2014 at 02:23 pm
this is sincerely getting ridiculous. Seriously BlogTO, let it go.
Soren / May 6, 2014 at 02:23 pm
It's a big deal when the crack smoking Mayor of Toronto ditches rehab in Chicago.

Amy / May 6, 2014 at 02:28 pm
If you have a friend, girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife or neighbor that lies, cheats and deceits, do you stay with them and dig up more dirt and let them do it to you again, or just turn your back on them and move onto better things?

Valentino Assenza / May 6, 2014 at 02:31 pm
Just a question to those that call themselves "Torontonians":

Are any of you aware that a municipal election is happening on October 27, 2014? Are you also aware that there are candidates running for Mayor other than Rob Ford?

If so, then start informing yourselves on them. If not, go back to sleep, or keep your heads buried in your macbook while sitting in a Starbucks.
E. Toby Coke replying to a comment from mark / May 6, 2014 at 02:34 pm
"That they (the media) continue to hound him despite him being in rehab shows how desperate they are"

The relationship between people like RoFo and the media is symbiotic. If you don't know that already, there's no helping you.

chester / May 6, 2014 at 02:41 pm
Seriously BlogTO you guys are losing any journalism integrity you had left. Give it up, if you're gonna keep regurgitating this crap I might as well read The Sun.
Jacob replying to a comment from Amy / May 6, 2014 at 02:57 pm
We'd like to move on, but he's still got the city as hostage.
Jim Smith replying to a comment from chester / May 6, 2014 at 03:04 pm
Journalistic integrity!? It's a blog...
Chester replying to a comment from Jim Smith / May 6, 2014 at 03:07 pm
They're way past just being a blog, but thanks for proving that blogging is not a real job.
Amy replying to a comment from Jacob / May 6, 2014 at 03:10 pm
The hostage is in your MIND. He had his powers stripped, he's no longer acting mayor. Let it go. YOU'RE only hostage cause you keep following his clown behavior
Jahn / May 6, 2014 at 03:19 pm
Rob Ford is still drawing a pay cheque from the City yet we have no idea whether he is actually in rehab or smoking crack up at his cottage. Either way, he no longer deserves one cent from the taxpayers of this City. He is a disgrace and needs to take some responsibility for his actions. Step down and GTFO!
Hmm replying to a comment from Chester / May 6, 2014 at 03:22 pm
Reading comprehension must be very difficult for you... considering the name of the website is BLOG T.O.

See that word BLOG? Do you need a dictionary to figure out what it means?
Dean replying to a comment from bill / May 6, 2014 at 03:34 pm
Did you know Norm Kelly was in Florida during the ice storm? NOPE not until Ford let the cat outta the bag...

And was Norm's visit just a lie? What's the condition of the dreadfully ill family member today?
Josh / May 6, 2014 at 03:34 pm
There is nothing wrong with this reporting.

He has not resigned. He is still "the mayor".

Toronto deserves to know where he is.
Pail replying to a comment from Jennie / May 6, 2014 at 03:37 pm
Well, Jennie, the poster maker was obviously trying to describe a missing person so that passers-by unfamiliar with our mayor would be able to identify him. It is not the poster maker's fault that our mayor is portly and crimson-faced, is it?

I do like your use of the term 'high horse', though. Very apt considering our mayor smokes hezza.
From today / May 6, 2014 at 03:39 pm
Councillor Gord Perks agreed that the mayor needs to be left alone.
“I don’t need to know. I don’t think anyone in Toronto needs to know. That’s a private health matter. Government in the city of Toronto does not have the right and should not have the right to investigate private health matters.”
bill replying to a comment from Dean / May 6, 2014 at 03:40 pm
Deflecting means you have nothign to say, this is about Rob Ford not Norm Kelly or anyone else. Does not natter what Norm Kelly did this is what Rob Ford did.
d / May 6, 2014 at 03:50 pm
i can't wait till he comes back so i can vote him in as mayor again.
Geary / May 6, 2014 at 03:52 pm
I just find it SAD that the other candidates don't seem to be using Robs absence to their advantage and to the advantage of Toronto residents. Yes Rob's potentially coming back, but now is the time for them to speak to the taxpayers, launch platforms, etc without having to answer to or debate everything with the Rob circus.
Geary1 / May 6, 2014 at 03:54 pm
The only talk we'll probably hear from the other candidates is their feelings on Robs absence, nothing about themselves and their ideas.
Karen / May 6, 2014 at 04:04 pm
For those who don't think " the other candidates don't seem to be using Robs absence to their advantage and to the advantage of Toronto residents" ... you haven't been paying attention... tsk tsk ... Olivia Chow, for one, has made her platform clear and every day has been travelling around Toronto to multiple events and making her presence very obvious ... she has been ignoring the RoFo circus and giving an excellent taste of how she would perform as Mayor of Toronto. I would suggest following the other candidates on Facebook for a short period of time, at the very least, to see for yourself ...
Dr. Kukko / May 6, 2014 at 04:10 pm
As a dog owner, I agree with Bill's earlier comment. I ALWAYS pick up after my using biodegradable bags. My dog is very well-trained,, likes everyone without exception and is a companion to everyone in my neighbourhood, where everyone knows his name. My other dog, Mayor Rob, is disobedient, bites everyone and is vicious; I'm told he should be put down, but I demure. He has been placed far away, in isolation where he can do no harm to himself or others - never to return.
Dean replying to a comment from bill / May 6, 2014 at 04:34 pm
Deflecting from the entire Mayoral race and the other candidates to only focus on Rob Fords whereabouts when he's on a personal leave of absence means you have nothing to say about this election or its candidates.
Whaaa... ? replying to a comment from Donna / May 6, 2014 at 04:41 pm
Nah... those posters are totally worth it for their hilarity alone. Also helps publicize the fact that Rob Ford is the worst mayor Toronto has ever had.
DN / May 6, 2014 at 04:45 pm
WHY ARE YOU EVEN LOOKING FOR HIM, who cares we need a break from the tyrant
Jimbo replying to a comment from Whaaa... ? / May 6, 2014 at 04:48 pm
So why not put his actual phone number on the signs then instead
Hank / May 6, 2014 at 04:52 pm
Rehabilitation centers are usually private in order to respect the privacy of all the patients there, no patient needs added stress when tying to go through a recovery.

For the respect of the other patients, I do not want to know where Ford is. All that's going to happen is the media and public are going to camp out there to try and snap a picture or flood the place with unwanted phone calls about Ford being a patient. These places are supposed to be private.
Ray replying to a comment from Hank / May 6, 2014 at 04:54 pm
I don't care if we ruin the lives of the other patients, its about us needing to know where he is!!!!
W. K. Lis / May 6, 2014 at 05:01 pm
The mayor is missing!! What will we do? What will we do?

Oh, wait a minute. Everything going on fine without him. The deputy mayor is doing an excellent job.

Never mind.
brian / May 6, 2014 at 05:35 pm
You Toronto blob are fucking douche bags really, to post something like this means you have no integrity at all. Your just a bunch of low life trolls. And the only reason you and the Toronto star want to know where he is so you can stalk and harass him. Do you guys not have anything else to do with your time losers.
WR Hearst replying to a comment from chester / May 6, 2014 at 05:57 pm
Complaining about the journalistic integrity and content of a blog? Is this really where you get your daily news from? Wow, we really are in trouble.
PISSING not Missing / May 6, 2014 at 07:19 pm
The next set of Rob Ford posters say PISSING and will be put up where Rob Ford has pissed in public.

Leghorn / May 6, 2014 at 09:04 pm
I'm moving onto plistening to the other candidates that's what I'm made of. The city has struggled with Ford for the past four years,I'm gonna take this 30 day leave as a breath of fresh air and a time to remember what Toronto really can be and achieve. All the while your stroking Fords ego, he's probably seeing the entire city is turned over wondering where he is, where he went and what he's up to.

#FordMoreYears / May 6, 2014 at 10:25 pm
Ford said he was taking a leave absense, in his official letter he did not specify how long. Rob Ford also stated that he was going to rehab, but he didn't say for how long or if he was going to rehab for his entire leave of absense.

The thing is, the more you smear his name and call him names, the more you drive him to do the behaviors that he's addicted to. It actually makes YOU an enabler by pushing at him and adding pressure.

Brian: Toronto Star? LOL, you do realize Doolittle went to the Globe and is on the same file, right? Man, some of you guys could stand to brush up on your chronology and current events. Every paper/outlet going is calling for the guy to throw in the towel, accept it. Bashing the Star is so last year.

Also, where the hell were all you staunch privacy advocates and fair-weather civil libertarians when Ford campaigned on expanding CCTV surveillance downtown, wanted to "deport" the kind of people he hangs around with from the city (LOL) and jail addicts, or tried to smear reporters using his city position, etc.? You poseurs.

JustSayNoToLiberals / May 7, 2014 at 09:54 am
Most law abiding Toronto residents love security camera's. Security of a city and protecting ones privacy while undergoing medical treatment are two very different things, although both are used to protect people. If anyones got brushing up to do its the uneducated left bloggers (wanna-be-writers with zero talent) who post derogatory comments all day long (in threads such as these) about Ford.

The Ford posters were made by Chows team. She has no intelligence or platform (which feels 1980'ish, hardly progressive). No ones focusing on other politicians, because there's nothing interesting there to look at. Chow is the most painful to watch. Robs totally got this in the bag, inspite of his extracurricluar activities (outside of work). John Tory just has really bad timing. He would've made an amazing councillor (a buffer to Ford, like Luby and Minnon-Wong). Pity.

Take a good long look Toronto, at these left posters. They represent the left low-lifes working at City Hall and your provincial government. Attach these attitudes to the billions wasted by their scandulous corrupt behaviors, and you'll get a very clear mental picture of who they are. They are laughing at you. They joke in private and online how stupid and uneducated you are because year after year you vote for them to steal from you. You vote for them to allow rapists, drug dealers, murderers and prostitutes to taint your neighborhoods and make them unsafe. What are they afraid of? The Conservatives. They're terrified the Conservatives will do an amazing job, and their Liberal party will never see the light of day ever again. They've been lying to you all along (even about the provincial NDP, seriously how much longer must they pay for Liberal Bob Raes mistakes?). They've pitted unions against everyone else, with the threat of job security and funding cuts (yes, they do it too, the media who receives, millions of your tax dollars, for years now, have been lying to you, about it). They always use people in poverty, or disabled persons to advance their Liberal cause, but I'm telling you now, they don't give a hoot. You might want to ask yourselves why strippers have access to free breast implants, while other people can't get access to drugs or healthcare. That's not what we're about.

Send a message. If you don't vote, VOTE. Anyone but Liberals.

Anna replying to a comment from Hank / May 7, 2014 at 01:52 pm
Why does anyone believe Rob Ford is actually in rehab? Awesome? Football camp? Geez...what rehab facility would allow work to be sent in (he's responding to calls from constituents)...and finally...he's communicating with the media? That's against all things that rehab requires. He's probably huddled up in his basement. No legitimate rehab facility would allow such outside's a recipe for failure.

Seriously though, on a different note, if he was a friend or a family member the last thing anyone needs is someone talking about/making fun of your problem. We don't post things about people going to AA or Drug Rehab for others, there are many people suffering from some sort of addiction. Rob Ford needs to deal with his demons, let's all step back and just let him get through his rock in a hard place and lay off.
Dr. Freud / May 9, 2014 at 09:28 am
It izz our opinion that the narcissistic personality of the typical politician requires publicity in every aspect of its life. Zo, publicizing the creature known as "Rob Ford" and his "recovery" is helpful in getting it through the so-called "Lindsay Lohan" phase - if it does get through it.
