Maple Leaf fans may not have had a Stanley Cup parade up Bay St. in 47 springs but they’ve now had a Rob Ford parade.

“It’s better than nothing,” teased Mike Ross, who was one of hundreds who were in the pack that escorted the mayor from the Air Canada Centre after the Maple Leafs were all but eliminated from the playoffs with their loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Still, the mood was jovial.

“Four more years, four more years,” the throng chanted as they left the ACC.

Ford was sporting an ear-to-ear grin as the frenzy around him unfolded — telling me he’d rather have a Stanley Cup to celebrate.

It was a happier moment for Ford than what went on inside.
