Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, famous around the world for his admitted smokes of the crack cocaine pipe, which he then blamed on his intoxication, now has a new flap to face: He incorrectly told constituents to turn back the clocks for daylight saving time, not forward.

Mr. Ford, who’s running for re-election, has admitted to smoking crack, but said he did it while drunk.
