WATCH: No more Ford sightings in Cottage Country

Muskoka residents trying to take in the long weekend without thinking of Toronto’s mayor

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.

    Certainly a city the size of Toronto can do better than this caliber of leadership.
    Lets vote for John Tory and bring respect back to the position of mayor of Toronto.

    This mans behaviour is more on the level of the show The Trailer Park Boys.

    Maybe Ma Ford and her brood should just quit pretending 'Poor Robbie' is in serious rehab and can somehow win re-election as Toronto Mayor.

    Instead, they should look at building an unoffical annex to Bracebridge's Santa's Village, calling it 'Bad Santa's Hideout'.

    Brain-impaired Robbie could easily do a Reality TV type of tribute to Billy Bob's performance. He wouldn't have to learn any lines. He could just be himself while under the influence of his favorite goodies. Even members of his entourage could play Bad Santa's elves. Of course, age restrictions would apply.
