Despite the cold, the sun shone down in both Gravenhurst and Bracebridge, the two Muskoka towns where Rob Ford had been spotted a day earlier.
Many laughed at the prospect of seeing Ford again, but many say the sunny Saturday had been free of sightings of Toronto’s troubled mayor.
A handful of people admitted they would try to take a photo with Ford if he did come back but the majority of those walking the streets here say they haven’t really thought about him.
Some, however remained skeptical of Ford’s whereabouts, questioning if he was in a rehab facility as he promised, given he was out and about town.
Others say they could care less about where Ford is.
But even if they didn’t think about the mayor, most of those spending a weekend away from the city wished him well, hoping he gets the help he needs.
