Rob Ford was the only person on City Council to vote against city funding for community festivals—including the annual Best of Weston festival, which will be held on August 21.
Council was considering a committee report on which festivals to support across the city. The Best of Weston festival was the only celebration to be approved in our ward. It received $4000, though it had asked for $4,500.
Only Rob Ford voted against funding the festivals; even the most penny-pinching councillors and Rob’s brother, Doug Ford, voted to support them.
Rob Ford received 60% of the vote in Ward 11 in last year’s election.
