TORONTO – Mayor Rob Ford, the bombastic right-wing politician who was elected on a promise to stop City Hall's gravy train just over two years ago, could be stopped in his tracks Friday.

A tight-lipped, weary-looking Ford emerged from his City Hall office on Thursday -- possibly his last full day as mayor -- to say he was hoping "for the best" in the conflict of interest appeal that has left his political future teetering on the scales of justice.

"I know you have a lot of questions, unfortunately I can't say too much before (Friday's) decision," Ford said. "I look forward to (the decision). I believe in the judicial system. Let's hope for the best.”
