Mayor's office cancels New Year's Levee
If you were hoping to greet Mayor Rob Ford at the annual New Year's Levee, you're out of luck.
The event has been cancelled for 2013 with Ford's chief of staff citing scheduling conflicts and the cost.
Mark Towhey says they are looking at other options, but no word on what those could be yet.
According to a city spokesman, the levee cost $4,500 in 2011 and $3,400 last year.
Towhey insists that the Mayor's conflict of interest court battle has nothing to do with the cancellation of the event, where Ford and councillors meet residents of the city.
