A stadium soon to be named in honor of the late Rob Ford?

If it’s up to a Toronto city councilor, a stadium in the Queen City could soon bear the name of Rob Ford, the former mayor of the city whose escapades went around the world.

City Councilor Paul Ainslie has tabled a proposal to rename a football stadium at Centennial Park in the Etobicoke neighborhood “Rob Ford Stadium.”

“Historically, the City of Toronto has recognized its former mayors by changing their commemorative name to honor their service (…). Anyone who served with Rob Ford on city council knows that he had two passions: representing his citizens, particularly those in his community of Etobicoke, and football,” Mr. Ainslie argued in his motion which will be put to a vote of his peers.

The office of Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow told the Toronto Star Friday evening, she plans to support the motion.

Rob Ford was elected leader of Toronto in 2010 and ran for a second term, before withdrawing from the race in 2014 after being diagnosed with cancer. He died in 2016, at age 46.

His time at the town hall of the Canadian metropolis had been tumultuous, particularly after the broadcast of a video showing him consuming crack. The media had also revealed several scandals surrounding his alcohol consumption and the management of his staff.

His brother, Doug Ford, also had a career in municipal politics in Toronto. He is now Premier of Ontario.
