Last year, The Beaverton wrote a piece about all the interesting facts you could learn about Andrew Scheer. We here at The Modern Spirit realized there were a lot of interesting facts about other people too, and some of them were worth looking into.

This week, we’ve decided to focus on the licence plate expert, former drug dealer, and wanna-be Mayor of Toronto, Doug Ford!

Doug Ford still wants to be Mayor of Toronto

Like the Beaverton said so clearly “you’ll find that none of these facts will enrich your life in any way, and – in fact – are a poor use of your limited time and brainspace.”

We hope these facts impact you and your decision to read more non-fiction on the Internet. Maybe this will help you quit Twitter like you’ve been telling your friends you wanted to for the last few years.
