American late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel gave his spin on the recent Vancouver Park Board approval of the ‘Dude Chilling Park’ sign as a piece of public art at Mount Pleasant’s Guelph Park.

The sign will be installed near its original location a year ago before it was taken down. However, supporters of the sign were armed with a petition and successfully convinced the Park Board to reinstate the sign as public art after. Their original goal was to rename Guelph Park to ‘Dude Chilling Park’.

“Between Dude Chilling Park and Rob Ford, I might have to move to Canada,” said Kimmel after playing a news clip by CTV Vancouver over the Park Board’s decision.
