Toronto Coun. Norm Kelly, the hip "6Dad" who floods our social media streams with memes, photographs and congenial wisdom, won Twitter Canada's Most Valuable Tweeter of the year award.

He beat out the prime minister, Justin Bieber, Ryan Reynolds and about a dozen other Canadian superstars for the honour.

To commemorate the event, we dug up some of Kelly's best tweets in recent months.

Who doesn't remember this one?

The 74-year-old politician constantly reminds us of how much he loves his city's sports teams — with more than one Jose Bautista bat flip reference during the playoffs. But it's hard for him to top this himself showing some serious Raptors love.

And a quick scroll through his Twitter feed will remind you exactly why he's earned the nickname "Dad." If you're looking for some cheeky life advice, @norm has got you covered.

If you're feeling down, the city councillor always has some #MondayMotivation for you along with plenty of quotable words of wisdom on the other six days of the week.

But sometimes, Kelly needs to reach out for a little advice himself. 

And you can be sure that @norm will let you know what's happening around Toronto.
