Toronto Orders City Employees To “Remove and Dispose” of NOW Magazine Issues

The office of Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford ordered city employees to remove all copies of NOW Magazine from locations around the city this morning, according to an email obtained by the paper.

This week’s issue features a photoshopped image of Ford to accompany its cover story: The Naked Truth About Rob Ford.

“We are outraged,” says NOW Editor/CEO Alice Klein. “Rob Ford does not want Torontonians to know the naked truth.”

The memo comes from Lorraine Pickett, supervisor of City Hall custodial services and was sent to a variety of city staff.

“The only thing that is offensive is the way Rob and Doug Ford are running this city,” says NOW editor/publisher Michael Hollett.
