TORONTO -- A Toronto Star reporter is moving ahead with a libel lawsuit against Mayor Rob Ford.

Daniel Dale, the Star's acting City Hall bureau chief, confirmed Monday he will sue Ford over comments the civic leader made in an interview with Conrad Black last week.

"Yes, I'm moving ahead," Dale told QMI Agency on Monday. "We're working on the statement of claim against Mayor Ford and ZoomerMedia. It'll be filed in the near future."
