We caught up with Rush guitarist and Toronto resident Alex Lifeson Thursday night at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards in London and could not resist asking him what he thought about embattled Toronto mayor Rob Ford, who admitted to smoking crack while in a drunken stupor last year. Lifeson says, "It's ridiculous. There is the honorable to do and that would be to resign, or at least step down for a while. But he's a very stubborn man and doesn't get it… Toronto's supposed to be a pretty boring place."
