Former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s body lies in repose for the next two days at City Hall for the public to have a chance to pay their respects, a rare honour that has not been granted to a mayor in decades.

Ford’s death from cancer last week made headlines everywhere and the public will have a chance to pay their respects today and Tuesday before Wednesday’s funeral services and the services on Wednesday will be proceeded by a public procession that will start at city all and end at the downtown Toronto church where the funeral will be held.Ford’s family will have a private ceremony afterward.

Robert Bruce “Rob” Ford was a Canadian politician and businessman who served as the 64th mayor of Toronto from 2010 to 2014 but his health problems prompted him to drop plans to seek re-election. He ran successfully for his old city council seat instead and will be remembered for his rocky ride as mayor, but also as a very “human” guy who didn’t play by the rules and often made headlines as a result.
