Rob Ford’s mayoralty has been disappointingly short on giant novelty cheques. It seems like someone so fixated on money matters should have a supply closet full of them. On Wednesday, though, Ford had an opportunity to give one out, and he seized it with both hands. The oversized financial instrument, made out in the amount of $10,885, was a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society. The money represents the proceeds from the mayor’s second batch of Rob Ford bobbleheads, which he sold for $20 each back in December.
