The mayor of Toronto was just kicked out of office by a judge for breaking conflict-of-interest laws. He's been the biggest character in Canadian politics for years.
He was once busted with weed in his car in Florida.

Ford freely admitted to the Toronto Sun that he did have marijuana in his car when a Florida police officer pulled him over in 1999 on a vacation with his wife, despite the fact that the charges were dropped against him.
"It was nothing," Ford said in 2010, the year he was elected mayor of Toronto. "It wasn't a major issue. There's more serious things in life."
He ran a reporter out of Toronto's City Hall for calling him a "fat fuck."
Ford was a city councilor at the time. "That is a verbal assault!" Ford yelled. "This is a public space! Why did you say that? Why are you running?"
