BEARY HOT Toronto high school teacher Joe Killoran was out for a jog yesterday when he came upon Rob Ford was being pelted with jeers and insults when while he marched in his city’s Canada Day Parade this afternoon. Killoran who is outspoken and has written at newspaper op-eds on educational issues including an essay on the rights of LGBT students in Catholic schools just couldn’t hold back and captured the media’s attention when he repeatedly called Ford a racist and a homophobe
Ford was at one point confronted by local resident Joe Killoran — a Toronto-area teacher who was apparently out for a jog when he crossed paths with the mayor’s entourage. Killoran hurled questions and accusations at Ford while the mayor’s staff attempted to intercede. “Answer one of the million questions people have for you,” Killoran said. “People have a million questions about your lying and your corruption.” Ford did not respond to Killoran. Someone in the crowd asked if he was working for one of Ford’s political rivals. “Do I look like I’m with a campaign?” Killoran, who was shirtless at the time, responded. “I’m an East York guy out for a jog.”
Dear Joe Killoran: Please jog by my house, I’ll be ready with refreshments.
