Here’s something that’ll soothe the pain of Damian Abraham’s recent MuchMusic cancellation: the Fucked Up frontman has been asked to moderate a Mayoral Arts Debate in his hometown of Toronto. Set to happen at noon on September 29 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, the two-hour event will feature such candidates as Olivia Chow, Ari Goldkind, David Soknacki and John Tory. Current tabloid-courting mayor Rob Ford has also been asked to participate, which kinda makes sense considering Abraham’s stance on legalizing marijuana.

Don’t live in Toronto but want to see Abraham’s moderator skills anyway? Check out a live stream at In the meantime, here’s the first episode of Abraham’s new Canadian Cannabis series for Vice.
