Premier Doug Ford Had To Ask His Realtor To Stop Using His Name in Her Ads

The realtor selling Doug Ford’s house has been asked not to use his name or pictures of him and his wife in her advertisements.

Thousands of poorly-designed flyers were distributed throughout Toronto by realtor Monica Thapar touting that her firm had just listed Ford’s house for sale. The flyer features cartoon Thapar wearing a yellow T-shirt with the slogan “Agent to the Premier!”

As well as an image of the home, there is one of the premier and his wife, Karla Ford, who are signing what appears to be legal documents in the couple’s dining room.

The Toronto Star contacted Ford’s office to ask whether Thapar had permission to use Ford’s name and likeness in her advertisements.

“The premier did not authorize the ad and has instructed the real estate agent to remove it immediately,” said Ford’s director of media relations, Ivana Yelich.

Thapar was ordered to stop distributing leaflets that featured the premier.

The house is expected to officially go up for sale next month for an undisclosed price.

Two houses in Ford’s Princess-Rosethorn neighbourhood sold earlier this spring for around $1.9 million, according to House Sigma.

There is no doubt Ford’s neighbors are breathing a collective sigh of relief after hearing the news. Their weekends will no longer be ruined by freaks protesting in front of the premier’s home.
