Councillor Doug Ford has fired back at world-renowned author Margaret Atwood for her criticism of suggested library cuts, telling reporters: "I don't even know her. If she walked by me, I wouldn't have a clue who she is."

Ford also said that the literary icon and activist — who took him to task on Twitter for saying, erroneously, that his Etobicoke ward has more libraries than Tim Hortons — should get herself elected to office or pipe down.

"Well good luck to Margaret Atwood. I don't even know her. If she walked by me, I wouldn't have a clue who she is," said the councillor and advisor to his brother, Mayor Rob Ford, after a committee meeting on proposed cuts.
