During a televised interview with host Conrad Black, embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford alleged that the ongoing scandals are “ripping our family apart,” while asserting that he has become a target of political vendetta by Toronto police chief Bill Blair. The show, titled The Zoomer, aired on VisionTV on Monday, in which Mayor Ford stated that “the chief, I have an issue with, I think it’s political.” Ford further added that “he wasn’t happy when I told people to find efficiencies,” because “I want to save money and I guess he disagrees with that.”
Apart from that, the mayor explained that his children are continually suffering from tears by the hordes of reporters outside his house. Ford revealed that “they’re really, really scared. They think I’m going to get hurt, they think their father’s going to get killed.” In addition to that, Ford narrated a detailed account of his 2012 encounter with Toronto Star reporter, Daniel Dale, near his backyard, which he remembered as the worst intrusion into his private life.
