After scaring the crap out of finding Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale near his house on May 3, Rob Ford vowed not to participate in press conferences if any Star reporters were present. That resolution lasted all of eight days. Today, at a Pan Am Games event, Ford addressed the crowd and took questions in a media scrum, despite the fact that his least-favourite newspaper had sent a journo along. Though we don’t usually like when politicians break promises, in this case, we’re glad Ford has decided to play nice. [Twitter]
