TORONTO —

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says police singled him out for a jaywalking ticket in British Columbia last weekend because of who he is.

Ford was in a Vancouver suburb, where he attended the funeral of a friend's mother, when he received the $109 ticket late Friday.

Ford said Wednesday that 15 people were with him, but the officer "picked me out and said, 'You're Rob Ford, come with me.'"

Ford last year made international headlines when he admitted to having smoked crack cocaine while in a drunken stupor. He's drawn attention for other erratic behavior, but he has resisted pressure to step down and is seeking re-election

Ford says Toronto police don't give jaywalking tickets, and he's perplexed.

A Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman in British Columbia declined comment
