This isn't Ford-related, but other shocking news out of Toronto.

After all the criticism New York's Stop-and-Frisk program got, sounds like Toronto's equivalent version is as bad, or worse. From The Star:
Quote:
In each of the city’s 70-plus patrol zones, blacks — and to a lesser extent people with “brown” skin — remained more likely than white people to be subjected to police stops that result in no arrest or charges being laid. The likelihood increases for blacks in areas of the city that are predominantly white.

The proportion of cards for black people in Toronto is three times greater than blacks’ share of Toronto’s population. In New York, the proportion of blacks stopped and frisked is 2.3 times greater than blacks’ share of that city’s population.

not racist. It's a fact. The majority of the crime in Toronto is non- white. The Toronto police wanted walls in their respecte division are hundreds o pictures of wanted criminals which are virtually all black.
I am sorry but if I had the right it frisk anyone for any reason, which I don't think they shoul have I am damn right gone frisk some damn gangsta black guy than some white guy walking down the steet.

Can't post a link as I'm on my phone. The CBC and star websites there is a story that Ford hired a known violent criminal to help him coach his high school football team.
He has been arrested for among other things assault on a peace officer.
The crown also contends that he is an enforcer for Ford's recently busted driver.

Edit: Home now here is a link.

So now, Ford is robocalling people in a former ally's area telling the residents about how bad this guy is for the city. Unreal. Anyone that disagrees with him ends up getting fired or has to resign.

http://www.thestar.com/news/city_hal...columnist.html

Quote:
A Toronto columnist says he received an irate and profanity-laden phone call from Mayor Rob Ford on Sunday evening over a column he wrote last week.

“I am so f------ mad at you right now,” Joe Warmington, quoting the mayor, wrote in a column published Monday in the Toronto Sun.

The veteran writer said when he told the mayor he didn’t care, Ford became “more enraged,” and swore at him again. “He was fuming, profane and belligerent,” Warmington wrote.
So if he's pissing off The Toronto Sun, he must be done by the next election, amirite?

Not a good idea for Rob Ford to bite the one remaining hand that feeds his fat ass with slightly less than scathing coverage.

So today is a day like many before, one in which the Mayor could be exposed and see his political career come to an end.

Rob Ford’s links to Alexander Lisi: Mystery court document to be released today

About half of a huge 500-page police file that a judge says was used to arrest Ford pal Lisi but targeted at someone else will be made public.


Can't wait, I'll update with the info on this thread!

As per the TO media source best on this:

Jonathan Goldsbie@goldsbie6m
No one has gotten in yet but the email has been sent.

So yeah, should have an update soon!

Well...that could do it?...

TorontoStar@TorontoStar5m
#Breaking: Police photographed Mayor #RobFord in multiple secret meetings with alleged drug dealer. More to come. #TOpoli

Katie Simpson@KatieSimpson241m
Documents allege that the so called crack video was the actual focus of the investigation. #Toronto

I'm sure there's something better in there...

Speculation!!

cathalkelly@cathalkelly52s
Instance per CP24: 'Ford and Lisi meet at an Esso station, Ford goes into the bathroom, for quite a while.'

And it gets better:

robyndoolittle@robyndoolittle20s
Fickel told police that Don Bosco Coach Payman Aboodowleh “said that he was mad at LISI because he was fueling the mayor’s drug abuse”

Remember, these are police sworn documents!

I smell a resignation!

Police watched Ford and Lisi meet over 100 times: http://*******/Hu9TS6

Well no wonder he wrote him a letter of recommendation, they were pretty tight!

Jonathan Goldsbie ‏@goldsbie 30s "On many occasions they followed him to meetings with Ford in parks. Detectives searched the area after and found empty vodka bottles."

No crack, just vodka!

That could be any 300 pound balding man. That picture proves nothing.

I'm reading the actual document now, the most interesting thing so far is that Chris Fickel, an ex-Ford staffer, knew that Ford was smoking weed, and probably doing cocaine as well.

He used to call Lisi to try to find Ford, and he thought Lisi was a drug dealer.

So we have the mayor's staff calling a perceived drug dealer, to find his whereabouts.

No wonder these guys resigned!

I'd say 300 pounds is a low-end estimate for Rob Ford.
