Toronto Police investigating link between alleged Rob Ford crack tape and homicide...


Toronto mayor Rob Ford was in the news again today as he could be link to the killing of the owner of the "CrackTape" showing Ford smoking crack.


"There may be a link between the alleged video showing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford inhaling from a crack pipe and a homicide investigation. The Globe and Mail reported Monday that a “senior member” of the mayor’s office shared a tip with Toronto police about the video being linked with a homicide. The staffer received the information from another person in the office who got a tip shortly after Gawker and Toronto Star broke the news about the alleged video. According to the Globe, the informant told police he or she knew “the address and unit number where the video was being held” and the video previously belonged “to an individual who may have been killed for its potentially valuable contents.”


Now it wouldn't surprise me that he was killed for what he knew/possessed but i never thought it would actually happened.


"Gawker’s crowdfunding effort to buy the alleged video for $200,000 has raised over $180,000 so far but it’s unclear whether that goal will be reached before the campaign’s deadline on Tuesday. Even before the crack tape was linked to a murder investigation, Gawker editor John Cook said his organization had lost contact with the men selling the video"


Toronto's mayor knew that the evidence tape would surely surface therefore could he or another person sponsored the killing of the man?


“I do not use crack coc aine, nor am I an addict of crack coc aine,” he told reporters at City Hall Friday.


Off course...

Just because I have time, I looked on the net and found a couple of news sites that numerates Mr. Ford's mishaps:


February 1999: Arrested in Florida for drunk driving and drug possession; pleaded no contest on the former charge; denies it during the 2010 Toronto mayoralty race, until presented with the evidence by the Toronto Sun.

April 2006: Security guards physically remove a drunken Ford from a Toronto Maple Leafs game; an out-of-town couple had asked him to be quiet, and Ford had slurred something about the woman wanting to be “raped and shot.”

March 2008: Ford is charged with assaulting his wife and uttering a death threat. The charges are abruptly dropped, in court, due to “inconsistencies” in his wife’s account.

June 2010: Ford is taped offering to buy a man “hillbilly heroin,” the powerful narcotic OxyContin. On the tape, he says he doesn’t know any dealers, but “I’ll f---ing try to find it.”

July 2011: A woman spots Ford on his cellphone while driving; when she reminds him it is a bad idea, he gives her — and her six-year-old daughter — the finger.

December 2011: Ford’s mother-in-law calls police, saying that her son-in-law has been drinking, and is threatening to take his children to the U.S., against his wife’s wishes.

August 2012: Ford is photographed reading papers while driving on a Toronto-area highway.

March 2012, June 2012, February 2013, March 2013: Photos and media reports circulate of Ford being intoxicated in public.

Considering his past, I totally agree with you.

I'm not from Toronto but I have a couple of friends from there who are really fed up with his attitude and circus. Lots of people wants him out of the office.

It wouldn't surprise me if the mayor was set up but I think there really is a video somewhere. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

I was afraid that this story would wind-up becoming something bigger and more dire than just Rob Ford smoking crack. As the Globe reported this past weekend, the Ford family has ties to drug dealing, and with the mayor's brother, Doug Ford, having been the major dealer of hash in Toronto during the 1980's, one can only conclude they also have at least some ties to the illegal drug underworld.

The actual video will most likely never be seen. Did the Ford's have somebody killed to ensure this? This is getting scary. Toronto is my favourite place in the world. It truly is a wonderful, beautiful, and world-class city. It deserves so much better than this.

According to The Star Rob Ford's popularity remain nearly untouched even after last week's news.

Not surprising since everything about the "Video" is just speculations and nothing has been proven yet, but I would have thought that there would have been a drop in it.

Off course, the Mayor and everything that comes with him remains a gold mine for other political parties but let's be honest here, this is NOT what Toronto needs.

Not from Toronto but what I see is a man that has been hounded RELENTLESSLY by the left leaning councelors and the union via the Toronto Star since he got elected.

In all those years he's been in office he managed to erase Toronto's deficit and pay down most of its debts without using any of their surplus funds, all the while improving city services and infrastructure.

Yes he has made alot of enemies, but no one deserves the treatment he has received. The Toronto Star should be investigated for its role in the witch hunts they fostered, and criminal charges should be handed out to those responsible if it is proven that they knowingly desiminated false information that they call "news".

False information?

Which false Information have been reported by the Star?

Perhaps you could point us in the right direction. This is getting really big and I'm currently looking more deeply into the Mayor's and his brothers past.

Thank You for sharing

Like I said "if it is proven that they knowingly desiminated false information". Did you not notice the word "if"?
I am not judging the validity of the information as it stands because I'm not qualified to do that. I'm just saying that before anyone is accused, let alone tried, the proof should be clearly laid out. In this casethe man is being tried based on alleged past misbehaviour (which I haven't seen any proof for either) and on an alledge video that hasn't been verified by any credible agency.

BTW, imho, niether the Toronto Star (TS) nor Gawker are credible agencies... Therefore without the video in hand to back their claim the TS should not have released the story (regardless of who beat them to the punch = Gawker).

Just saying...

i don't find it particularly surprising since his "popularity" is already is already low. besides both polls do not show a real feeling for how they like Ford in the position due to the fact people may not WANT Ford but that they may not want Chow even more. a much better polling question would be something along the lines of "do you feel Ford is doing a good job in office" or "should Ford hold the position of Mayor at this time". that would give a much clearer, and fairer judgement of his "popularity".



Off course, the Mayor and everything that comes with him remains a gold mine for other political parties but let's be honest here, this is NOT what Toronto needs.


but what do you expect when MEDIA rigs the election in such a way that only those THEY want in office get their voices heard? out of THIRTY NINE candidates running how many were ALLOWED to be heard in public debates? SIX OF THEM, (and 3 of those dropped out). and YES I SAID ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE in the DEBATES. one of those running was a close friend. he begged and pleaded to be allowed to have his voice heard in these debates, only to be told that "only those THEY felt had a chance of winning would be ALLOWED to participate in them". by doing that they themselves DECIDED who would have a chance at winning. after all who in their right minds would vote for someone who they likely never heard of, who's platforms, stances and ideas are a complete mystery?

There were six "major" candidates running who were included by the media in public opinion polls and mayoral debates during the campaign, although by election day only three remained as active contenders: Ward 2 councillor Rob Ford, Deputy Mayor and Ward 19 councillor Joe Pantalone and former Liberal cabinet minister George Smitherman.
en.wikipedia.org...
and if you look at the election results you can plainly SEE how true that is. out of the rest of the candidates they got between 251 and 5,012 votes, in comparison to the LOWEST of three ALLOWED to be heard getting 95,482 votes. that's quite telling i think on how the MEDIA controlled that election.
