Upcoming in the March 2014 issue of The Walrus: the story behind the Rob Ford story. Ivor Tossell, author of The Gift of Ford: How Toronto’s Unlikeliest Man Became its Most Notorious Mayor, examines how a little-known Supreme Court ruling unmuzzled reporters—and changed Canadian journalism. The feature-length article includes a dozen illustrated portraits of Toronto’s beleaguered mayor by frequent Walrus contributor Graham Roumieu. See them all here, looped to infinity, in this special preview of coming attractions.

The March issue mails to subscribers this week, and will be available on national newsstands on February 17.
