TORONTO -- We'll find out Friday whether Mayor Rob Ford will stay parked at City Hall or be forced to hit the road.
The three-judge panel mulling Ford's appeal of the conflict of interest decision throwing him out of office announced Wednesday their decision will be released Friday at 10:30 a.m.
The stakes couldn't be higher. If Ford loses the appeal, he'll be tossed out of office; if he wins, he stays in the mayor's chair for another two years.
If the judges rule Ford must vacate his seat, the spotlight will shift from the courtroom to City Hall and council will have to decide whether to replace Ford by appointment or a mayoral byelection.
