The Herald reposts an AP report.

¬†It seems that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford can’t cross the street these days without getting into trouble.

The mayor’s spokesman, Amin Massoudi, confirmed Saturday that Ford received a jaywalking ticket Friday night.

Ford was in a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia, where he’s attending the funeral of a friend’s mother.

Toronto’s embattled mayor last year made international headlines when he admitted to having smoked crack cocaine while in a drunken stupor.¬† Read more »
