Deck the city hall: Toronto councillors have some holiday fun

Toronto city councillors and the reporters that cover them blew off a little steam at city hall on Thursday by decorating their offices for the holidays.

Councillors decorated trees, hand-cut snowflakes and former mayor Rob Ford even strung a bunch of Christmas bows in the shape of the TTC map.

Check out Jamie Strashin's video of the festivities to see the councillors' handiwork, and to find out who won this year's contest.
