Mayor Rob Ford will officially launch his campaign for re-election Thursday night.
The mayor will deliver a 20-minute speech that will "include some humility and a lot of accomplishments", according to his brother and campaign manager Doug Ford, who spoke to the Toronto Sun.
He says they're expecting thousands of people to attend the event at the Toronto Congress Centre.
Doug Ford told the Sun, “Nothing is going to compare to this, nothing. I have an idea (on the turnout) but I'm not going to mention a number, it is staggering. It is going to make (the other campaign launches) look like a tea party.”
Ford won't be unveiling any specifics about his platform this evening.
They are promising a free t-shirt and flag to the first 1,000 supporters.
