Rob Ford Protesters Call For Toronto Mayor To Resign (PHOTOS)

A rally calling for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to resign drew protesters to city hall on Saturday, and with them came their signs, chants and chalk messages.

The rally came over two weeks after Ford was accused of smoking crack cocaine on video, an allegation he has repeatedly denied.

The event, publicized on Facebook, was meant to be a peaceful affair.

“This is meant to be a positive, respectful, and upbeat event. We want to join voices to inject hope and joy into Toronto’s future,” a Facebook message read.

It asked participants to “share your vision for a better Toronto.”

Ford previously said he has no intentions of leaving his post, and plans to run again in the next election.

Check out some messages from the scene below, in addition to tweets about the event.
