TORONTO -- Anti-Rob Ford re-election signs popped up in Toronto on Monday morning, taking shots at his drug use and infamous death-threat video.

No Ford Nation rolled out election-like signs in the west end that took aim at Ford's behaviour over the last four years while pushing fictitious candidates.

Within the last year, Ford has admitted to smoking crack cocaine and being drunk in public. He's also been caught threatening to kill someone on video - although Ford claims he was merely doing an impression of wrestler Hulk Hogan when it was filmed.

"The current mayor threatens to kill people and gets publicly drunk," read one of the three signs. "If elected, I promise I will just get publicly drunk. Vote Ray Faranzi."

A second sign read: "Elect Jeff McElroy, He promises to just smoke pot as mayor. Not crack."

The third sign mocked Ford for being caught on police surveillance peeing on a tree in a schoolyard during a meeting with his friend Alexander "Sandro" Lisi.

"When I urinate in public, I never get caught on camera. Vote Jim Tomkins," read the sign.

All the signs included the slogan: "Anyone's better than Rob Ford" and directed people to the website, nofordnation.com. The website includes information on candidates running against Ford including Olivia Chow, John Tory, Karen Stintz and David Soknacki.

The site come with audio cartoons of Rob Ford speaking during press conferences, media scrums and when he was caught on camera ranting in Jamaican patois at Steak Queen in the west end.
