March 31 (UPI) -- One Toronto group is apparently fine with their future mayor getting drunk on booze or lifted on pot as long as he or she doesn’t smoke crack.

A series of campaign signs have been posted in Toronto featuring phony mayoral candidates with some fairly funny slogans that mock current Mayor Rob Ford, infamous for admitting that he smoked crack cocaine.

The election signs were posted by the “No Ford Nation” political group started by Christina Robins three years ago. “Ford Nation was started by Rob and Doug Ford to divide this city into us and them,” Robbins told Canada.com. “What we’re saying is that there’s no such nation. We’re just Toronto.”

The election will be held on Oct. 27. “You don’t want to say ‘anyone but Ford’ and then not give them any resources to make an informed decision,” Robbins said. “We want to get back to a mayor who doesn’t embarrass us.”

Robbins hopes the edgy ads will get people to check out the NFN website. “Our point is if you’re gonna vote for Ford you might as well vote for this guy,” she said. “Quite frankly, the guy who says he’ll only smoke pot in office is better than Ford.”
