The public can now watch the video that touched off the biggest political scandal in Toronto’s history.
It’s the video the late Rob Ford tried to deny was real, facing an onslaught of questions as mayor of Canada’s largest city in May 2013. Ford said then he could not comment on a video “that I have never seen or does not exist.”
The infamous Rob Ford “crack video” was released to the public today, and there have been many reactions to the video. Stemming back to Rob Ford’s time in office as Mayor of Toronto, the video shows Ford smoking a glass pipe, and acting a little off character. The video lead political media storm, and projected Rob Ford into the limelight.
Afternoon Drive guest host, Jeff McArthur, spoke with Rob Ford’s brother, Doug, about his reaction to the release of the video, and what it means today.
