'Buck-naked men' behind mayor's decision to avoid Pride: Doug Ford - 2014-02-06
Mayor Rob Ford said Wednesday he would not be attending the parade. Unlike in years past, when he has said he would be at the family cottage for the Canada Day long weekend, Ford told a University of Toronto crowd, "I'm not going to change the way I am."
The mayor was not at city hall on Thursday and his office said he was taking a sick day. Doug Ford spoke to reporters.
