TORONTO – Two Toronto women brought a cake to city hall for the mayor and wished him a happy birthday and a short mayoralty.
The vanilla cake read: “Happy Birthday Rob. Please resign.”
“I’ve come to city hall because today is the birthday of the mayor of Toronto and we want to celebrate that but we want to also ask him, as we wish him a happy birthday, to please do the right thing and resign,” Charmaine Emerson said.
Emerson, along with her counterpart Christina Brubaker, also rewrote the lyrics of “happy birthday.”
“Happy birthday rob ford, please resign rob ford, happy birthday, please resign, please resign rob ford,” they sang.
The mayor is celebrating his 44th birthday Tuesday amid growing questions at city hall about an alleged video of Mayor Rob Ford smoking what could be crack cocaine.
The mayor has dismissed the allegations, calling them “ridiculous” and claiming that the video does not exist.
And on Friday, he said he does not use crack cocaine.
“I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine,” he said.
Global News has not seen the alleged video and cannot verify its authenticity.

But despite the mayor’s denial, the protesters said the mayor “deserves a break.”
“All of us deserve a break some time, we just need to step away, take a holiday, step down and reflect,” Brubaker said.
While Brubaker and Emerson were escorted out of city hall before they could give the mayor his cake, the mayor ended up getting his own cake later in the day.
And days after calling the Toronto media “maggots” – a comment he did apologize for – the mayor offered some of the cake to media waiting outside of his office.
