Councillor Doug Ford alleged Friday that Mayor Rob Ford is the victim of a conspiracy and denied that his brother has used heroin or was hanging out with gang members.
Ford — the mayor’s most vocal defender — spent around 10 minutes defending the mayor to reporters at City Hall as Rob Ford again refused to address the latest allegations contained on police documents released by a judge.
The mayor — who was approached by media seven times Friday at City Hall and at a public works presser — ignored questions about claims he tried to buy the crack video, that he hung out in a crack house, that Sandro Lisi allegedly traded pot for the mayor’s stolen cellphone and that he may have used heroin and crack as recently as April 20.
“In my opinion, this is a clear, clear agenda, a very well-organized agenda from some of our competitors,” Councillor Ford said. “In my opinion they don’t want Rob Ford here.”
