Ford to meet his match in Chicago Add to ...

On a rare foreign business trip next month, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will be meeting with his Chicago counterpart Rahm Emanuel, the famously tough-talking former chief of staff to President Barack Obama.

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.

“[Mr. Emanuel] has met his match with Rob Ford,” the councillor joked. “It’ll be putting two lions in the cage. Rob’s a little bigger.”

The councillor said the pair are expected to sign a symbolic co-operative agreement, the details of which are still being hammered out.
