A Toronto Mayor who was caught urinating on a Toronto city council chamber floor in the middle of the night has been slapped with a $25.25, the city’s chief administrative officer said Tuesday.
Rob Ford’s fine comes on top of a $15,000 fine issued to the Mayor last month for breaching city bylaw by urinating at the council chamber.
Ford was ordered to pay $15K for the fine, which includes the cost of a new pair of pants.
The $25 fine is in addition to $15k Ford is already paying to the city for his lawyer to represent him in his case.
Ford, who had no immediate comment, has denied breaching city policy.
The incident occurred on March 15 at around 3:30 a.m. as Ford was seated in a council chamber when a man asked if he had a toilet.
Ford replied that he did not and asked the man to leave.
Ford then proceeded to urinate in the chamber, and the council subsequently cleared him to enter.
Ford’s lawyer has said Ford did not know what he was doing when he urinated on the council floor.
In an emailed statement, the mayor said he was embarrassed, but that he would pay the fine.
“I feel terrible for the council,” he said.
“It is a shame.
I didn’t know what I was doing.”
The council said Ford should be “more than sorry.”
Ford has denied breaking city bylaws, and has insisted he’s acting within the rules and bylaws.
