TORONTO -- Councillors should appoint Mayor Rob Ford to replace Mayor Rob Ford if he does get thrown out of office, deputy mayor Doug Holyday proposes.

Holyday argued that appointing Ford to replace himself would be the "easiest" thing for council to do if he loses his appeal and is tossed out of office for violating the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.

"I would be supportive of just reappointing him," Holyday told QMI Agency on Wednesday.

Ford's appeal of the decision removing him from office will be heard Jan. 7.

If the mayor loses that appeal, the November decision by Justice Charles Hackland throwing him out of the mayor's chair would take effect, leaving council to either appoint a replacement or order a citywide mayoral byelection.
