Maclean's names Rob Ford
"Newsmaker of the Year"

There was lots of news and lots of individuals on which it pivoted this year, but it is difficult, if not impossible, to disagree with Maclean's declaring Toronto mayor Rob Ford as 'Newsmaker of the Year' for 2013. The pronouncement was made  in the 108-page Newsmakers issue, which features five other public figures, including royal heir Prince George, astronaut Chris Hadfield, girls' rights activist Malala Yousafzai, suspended senator Mike Duffy and Pope Francis. 
“Rob Ford was a larger-than-life figure whose story transcended borders. In a year of some great successes and heroics—and some great, roiling scandals—he was impossible to ignore, and the clear choice as our Newsmaker of the Year,” said Maclean’s Editor Mark Stevenson.
