TORONTO (WKZO) -- A change in plans for the controversial Mayor of Toronto who had planned to cross the border into Detroit to attend the NHL Winter Classic at the Big House on New Years Day.

The Maple Leafs are playing the Red Wings and Rob Ford said in November that he wanted to support the Leafs, his hometown team.

Instead he will be hosting a reception in Toronto to give residents a chance to meet the mayor on January 1st.

No reason for the change of plans was announced but U.S. Border officials have made it known that his admissions of cocaine use in the past might prevent them from letting him over the border.
