Rob Ford holds up gravy packets left in the mayor’s office by outgoing mayor David Miller’s administration when he moved into the office in December 2010.
Mayor-elect John Tory might have some surprises waiting for him in the mayor’s office when he takes over on Dec. 1.
Doug Ford – Mayor Rob Ford’s brother – said they are still working on some “fun” pranks for Tory’s team.
“I told John, David Miller left us a whole bunch of gravy packs so we were thinking a few other things just as a friendly joke,” Ford said on Monday.
“Just as fun. I don’t know, I haven’t talked to Rob. We might do something fun.
“I was thinking of leaving LRTs all over the place.”
Back in 2010, Mayor Ford wasn’t impressed by the gravy packets left behind after he waged his winning election campaign on stopping the “gravy train” at City Hall.
“I should mail them back to him,” Rob Ford told the Sun at the time. “He may be in (gravy) withdrawal and need some.”
Packages of gravy weren’t the only thing left behind for Ford’s then incoming administration.
Along with what was described as a “cordial note,” Miller also left behind a copy of the MFP Inquiry final report.
At the time, Mayor Miller’s spokesman said the mayor found it as a useful how-to guide for running a clean and transparent government.
