A Visit To City Hall

Entrance to the Mayor's  office

Entrance to the Mayor’s office

Toronto Open Doors on May 25th gave us the opportunity to visit City Hall. The Mayor’s office on the second floor was unusually popular this year.

Inside Mayor Rob Ford’s office

After waiting patiently in line for an hour we were allowed into Mayor Rob Ford’s office. Very smart I must say. Despite the current troubles that he is having, no suspicious items were seen  in his office. Nothing to report.

The famous Cut the Waste scale

The Mayor’s ‘Cut the Waste’ scale however looked very clean, perhaps it has not been used recently.

Winston Churchill walks briskly away from City Hall

Winston Churchill’s statue stands just outside City Hall. He looks like he is walking away, at a brisk pace, with a stern face and hands on hips. This of course is not related to the current troubles at City Hall.

Old City Hall

After visiting City Hall and Mayor Rob Ford’s office, I felt a sudden urge to visit Old City Hall. This is where the prosecutors, judges and defence lawyers spend their days, not forgetting those in the dungeons underneath. Regrettably, most areas inside were off-limits.

All in all, a great day at Doors Open Toronto.
