In a symbolic sign of the end of Rob Ford's reign of terror, Ford's cartoonishly large office scale was removed today from the city hall today on the orders of Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly, who was granted most of Ford's powers by the City Council two days ago. The scale was once used as part of the "Cut the Waist Challenge," a 2012 effort by Ford to lose 50 pounds in five months. Instead, in a microcosm of just about everything Ford does, he ended up losing 17 pounds and falling off the scale.
