Mayor Rob Ford has expanded his campaign team.

Outside his office Tuesday afternoon, he announced that disgraced sprinter Ben Johnson and Trailer Park Boys actor Sam Tarasco are offering their support.

"They want to come out to events and they want to get votes," mayor Ford told reporters.

Johnson was stripped of the gold medal he won at the 1988 Olympics after he tested positive for a banned substance.

"I support Ben 100 per cent," mayor Ford said. "We've all made mistakes in life. I've supported him since day one and that's the bottom line."

Tarasco plays Sam "The Caveman" Losco on the hit Canadian comedy series "Trailer Park Boys."

"I'm an Etobicoke boy," Tarasco said. "I've always supported mayor Ford."
