How to use LocalForward in ssh config file

If you don't want to type 

ssh -L 3306:db.i88.ca:3306 proxy.i88.ca 
everytime, you can put LocalForward in your ~/.ssh/config file:

Host proxy.i88.ca
LocalForward 3306 db.i88.ca:3306

# Tunnels that are set up upon login
#
#      LocalForward                    "110:pop3.example.com:110"
#      LocalForward                    "143:imap.example.com:143"
#      LocalForward                    "25:smtp.example.com:25"
#      RemoteForward                   "3000:localhost:22"
You can use DynamicForward like this:
DynamicForward 1080
