The Toronto mayor is really into Halloween.

"Fun-loving" Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, is, perhaps not surprisingly, really into Halloween. He's so into it, in fact, that he turned his City Hall office lounge into a haunted house. On Monday, Ford gave the media a tour of the spooky digs, complete with fake skeletons that he referred to as "dead councillors."

Ford even offered the Toronto press corps (with whom he has a notoriously icy relationship) free candy. When they passed, he lamented that "all that cyanide" would go "to waste." Ha.

"Just another day at City Hall, basically," says the video description.
