      Mayor Rob Ford was swarmed by a crowd as he arrived at the East York Canada Day Parade this morning. 

      Some were holding Ford Nation signs as the mayor posed for photos. 

      Wearing a red shirt, mayor Ford told reporters "it's absolutely fantastic" to be out and about today. 

      When asked how much weight he lost while at a treatment centre, Ford said, "I'm not getting into pounds." 

      "I know I'm under him now," mayor Ford said while laughing, referring to his brother, councillor Doug Ford. 

      Meanwhile, some haters came out to voice their opinion about Ford's return. A topless man circled the mayor at one point screaming, “You're a corrupt, lying, racist, homophobe. Answer the people's questions!”

      Ford ignored him and continued to smile and hand out business cards.

      When asked about his campaign and his recent drop in the polls, he said, “Polls mean nothing. The only poll that matters is on October 27.”

      Mayoral candidates John Tory and Olivia Chow were also at the parade. Tory, Stintz, Chow, and Ford plan to visit several Canada Day events throughout the day.
