Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his heart goes out to Ford’s wife and two young children after he died at the “too young” age of 46.
Former prime minister Stephen Harper is remembering Ford as a dedicated public servant who will be remembered for his courage and love for Toronto and his family.
The Toronto sign will be dimmed tonight in his honour.
Comedian Jimmy Kimmel who had the former mayor on his show several times said he rarely met a man who loved his city as much as Ford loved Toronto.
Ford’s death has been reported on celebrity sights including People, US Weekly and TMZ.
