Mayor Rob Ford: “His Worship” or ‘His Horse-shit”
I was attending a meeting with Maine, U.S, counterparts. The meeting included a few Mayors from the Canadian side including a Minister and Mayors and other officials from the U.S side. Canadian side was addressing their mayors as “Your Worship” while Americans were addressing their mayors as simply ‘Mr. Mayor’.
One of the Mayors from the U.S side, whom I knew quite well, looked at me and said, “Please tell me why are you calling your Mayors “Your Horseshit”? He was generally a very jovial person and hence nobody got offended. Instead everybody laughed and we dropped “Your Worship” in that meeting.
Come to think of it that nomenclature of “Your Horseshit” applies quite well to Rob Ford. His latest shenanigan was attending Toronto’s Taste of the Danforth Festival while quite drunk. Recommend this post
