Last week Alex went to see Robyn Doolittle speak on her new book "Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story" at Rotman UT.
Robyn Doolittle is a city hall reporter with the Toronto Star. She began her career covering crime and moved to the municipal politics beat during the 2010 mayoral elections. A graduate of Ryerson University's journalism school, Doolittle has lived in Toronto since 2002.
