Mr. Ford and Mr. Emanuel are scheduled to sit down for a one-hour meeting Sept. 19, according to Councillor Doug Ford, who is helping organize a trade mission to the Illinios city.
“ has met his match with Rob Ford,” the councillor joked. “It’ll be putting two lions in the cage. Rob’s a little bigger.”
