News Now makes Jimmy Kimmel Live


When it comes to the late night talk show circuit — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been hogging most of the air time, on American networks. However, Hamilton’s race for the mayor’s chain of office managed to “butt” in, on Jimmy Kimmel last night — and “CHCH” news, helped to tell the story.

It started with our friend and colleague Taz Boga and a story that she read, on “News Now”.

That clip went full circle from CHCH to Hollywood and back this morning. And it ended — with a last word from the man at the centre of the story — Hamilton taxi driver and candidate for mayor Ejaz Butt.
