With plenty of holiday cheer going around, it was mayor Rob Ford's turn to extend the holly branch.
Wednesday afternoon, after the press asked him about a staff party at the mayor's mother's house, Rob Ford then invited the media as well.
When they arrived, they were told they were more than welcome to join in, but had to leave their cameras and microphones outside.
The mayor led a tour of the house, including the basement where the party had been ongoing. A catered meal, and no less than three cakes to commemorate Rob Ford's wife's birthday.
CP 24 reporter Nneka Elliott spoke with Friendly Fire, and says it was strange to a degree, "considering the clashes the media has had with the mayor...but nonetheless he was very cordial."
City Hall's 44 councillors were all invited as well, but only two showed up; Gary Crawford, and budget chief Frank DiGiorgio.
