TORONTO — Another Ford is running for Toronto council.

But Russ Ford, 60, who filed his nomination papers Monday, is no relation — and no fan — of the infamous Mayor Rob Ford.

"I think we've had a bit of a circus the last few years and I think Toronto really strives on its strong neighbourhoods and I think we need to get back to that," Ford told reporters after registering to run.

Ford, who runs a youth centre near Rob Ford's west-end neighbourhood, says he has nothing in common with the current mayor.

"No drunken stupors," he said.
