Marg Delahunty scares Toronto Mayor into calling 911

“I came out of my house and I was ambushed,” Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said yesterday, defending his call to 911. Newfoundland native Mary Walsh, playing the character of journalist Marg Delahunty, was trying to interview Ford for a regular segment on This Hour Has 22 Minutes. The character of Delahunty makes a habit of approaching politicians for surprise comedic interviews. Ford didn’t see the humour in it. “There was a lady dressed up and she was screaming my name: ‘We got you Rob Ford, we got you,'” he said.
