Since Rob Ford bucked tradition and relaxed at his cottage instead of making an appearance at the 2011 Pride parade, councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam decided to make things a bit easier for him this year, according to the Toronto Star. In February, Wong-Tam offered to host receptions for Ford to mark International Day Against Homophobia on May 17 and the Pride festivities in late June—but the mayor hasn’t gotten back to her yet. Ford will be getting his official invite to Pride Toronto 2012 revelry today or tomorrow, but we’re not very hopeful that he’ll actually show up. Especially since he can now claim parade marching is bad for his health. [Toronto Star]
