Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is making headlines once again this week – but this time it has nothing to do with his substance abuse issues.
The controversial Mayor participated in an impromptu reggae dance party on the floor of the Toronto City Council chambers Tuesday, waving his arms and shaking his body like he just didn’t care. The council was dancing to the music of local jazz band Jay Douglas and the All Stars, who performed Bob Marley’s “One Love” and an original song called “Christmas Carol Blues.”
Fortunately – or unfortunately, if you prefer – there was no twerking involved.
Incidentally, this wasn’t the first time Ford’s been caught dancing in public this week. On Sunday, Ford was spotted dancing during a gospel choir performance at the West Toronto Church of God.
Watch the dance party here.
