While Rob Ford marched alongside the East York Canada Day parade, he faced some of his old supporters, and a string of hecklers who jeered and booed the returning Mayor as he walked the parade route. Most of them were what you would expect - except for one man.
The jogger, a man professing himself to be an East York local, out for a jog, was notably not wearing a shirt. He engaged in a brief, angry tirade directed at Ford.
The event made him into perhaps the most famous random, shirtless jogger in the history of the city, and the jogger - later revealed in media reports as Joe Killoran - sparked a cult following.
One common theme seemed to be thanking the new local hero.
But there were some sober comments, as well.
