Post-Ford party planned at city hall for election night

With the Toronto election just a week away, the Ford-era in city politics could very well be coming to end. John Tory has a decent lead over Doug Ford in the mayoral race, and Ward 2 candidate Andray Domise is making a huge push to thwart Rob Ford's return as city councillor. This news has some people in the mood to party. Hosted by Newmindspace, a huge post-Ford bash is set to go down at city hall on the night of the election under the name "Business as Usual, Folks."

"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," reads the Facebook event page. "Meet us at our civic centre with friends and lovers as we kiss these last four years goodbye and usher in another four years of functional city government. Bring Toronto flags, champagne, sparklers and boomboxes."

This could, of course, be the most depressing party ever if Doug pulls off a stunning last minute victory, but the odds look good that Nathan Phillips Square will be home to some very happy people next Monday night.
