Mayor Ford Accuses Police Chief of Having Political Vendetta

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.

Indicating that he first thought that Dale was a pedophile out to peer at his children, Ford said he “lost it” and confronted him. Ford remembered, while laughing, that the reporter got scared and “fled on foot” after he angrily confronted him peering into the Fords’ yard from a small stack of cinder blocks. Conclusively, Ford asserted that “lucky he fled on foot because I was upset, because that’s just crossing the line.”
