Shaheen said he wanted to tell the "circus story" of Rob Ford, who has refused to resign as mayor of Toronto after admitting to smoking crack cocaine.

"We decided not to focus on the negative side because it's sort of 'been there, done that' by other people," he said. "We've stayed away from the obvious sound bites and stuff that have been well-recorded. We wanted to stay away from ‘the fat guy who reportedly smoked crack’ but really tell the circus story."
