Toronto councillor asked to remove logo from Facebook page

Mammoliti used the company’s “Built Ford Tough” logo without permission

Ford Canada, the automaker, has asked Toronto Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti to remove its “Built Ford Tough” logo from a Facebook page supporting Toronto mayor Rob Ford’s administration. A Ford car spokesman says the company received about a dozen calls from people upset with the unauthorized use of the Ford logo. Giorgio Mammoliti’s Facebook page has been the ire of many Torontians lately, as it promises to block “communists” from its membership list. Mammoliti, once an NDP MPP, has expressed concerns lately about people he believes to be communist making deputations at City Council meetings.
