Ford ruling

A look at eight possible contenders for Rob Ford's seat Add to ...

In his famously brief style, Mayor Rob Ford spoke with a crush of reporters and camera crews outside his office for just under two minutes on Monday after learning a judge had ordered him out of office.

Councillors looking to replace him were more vocal.

The most obvious contender is deputy mayor Doug Holyday. A fellow fiscal conservative and former mayor of Etobicoke, he said he would be willing to finish Mr. Ford’s term if council chooses to appoint a replacement.

Denzil Minnan-Wong, a fellow conservative who has criticized Mr. Ford, sounded eager for a by-election.

Neither Shelley Carroll and Adam Vaughan, two left-wing councillors with mayoral ambitions, would make their intentions explicit.
