Rob Ford's death reverberated with Canadians well outside the city where he'd served as mayor.
The former Toronto mayor polarized voters with his brash, uncompromising political style and became an international celebrity for his drug and alcohol use while in office.
He was equally defined by his apparent contradictions: a millionaire with a working-class attitude; a cost-cutting crusader who promoted subway expansion over less expensive transit solutions; and a man who, while serving as Toronto's mayor, often seemed more interested in coaching high school football.
Ford died on March 22 after battle cancer since 2014. He was 46-years-old. This is a shot was taken on the steps of Toronto’s St. James Cathedral where Ford’s funeral was held on March 30. Photo by Fred Thornhill.
