Just when you think the Rob Ford saga has reached its peak, the news cycle delivers the latest report of questionable behaviour by Toronto’s mayor, or footage of yet another circus-like day in the city’s council chambers.

In between all the stories about drug use, police surveillance, and city councillors getting tackled by the mayor, there have been a few reports of otherwise innocent businesses getting swept up in the Ford scandal. Some haven’t been happy about it, while others are gleefully trying to take full advantage of the media attention generated by the biggest (and most embarrassing) story to hit Toronto in decades.

What follows are a few companies (and individuals) that have either tried to distance themselves from Rob Ford as much as possible, or are diving head-first into the scandal  to see what profit they can make from their fleeting brush with the greatest political train wreck of our time.
