Label printer Rob Ford elected Toronto's 64th mayor


In today’s municipal election, Rob Ford, CFO and principal of Deco Labels and Tags and a Toronto city councillor for the past decade, has just been elected mayor of Toronto.  His older brother, Doug Ford, Jr., has also just been elected the replacement city councillor in Rob's old ward.  

Rob is scheduled to take over as mayor on December 1st. As far as we know at PrintAction Magazine, it will be the first time a printer has occupied the city’s mayoral office since William Lyon Mackenzie was elected Toronto’s first mayor in 1834.
