Rob Ford in butter rather than the proverbial “hot water”

23 Aug


This butter-sculpture in the Better Living Centre at the 2012 CNE portrays Rob Ford reading a book. When I took the photo, the sculptor had not completed the carving of the mayor’s left hand. The piece of work brought many amused smiles and knowing nods of the head from those admiring the sculptor’s skills.

The life-size sculpture in butter is in a refrigerated showroom at the CNE’s Better Living Centre

Although my post usually relates to Toronto’s history, I felt that perhaps it was a historical moment to see our mayor in butter.
