TORONTO - Coun. Janet Davis told Doug Ford to shut his “f---ing mouth” Wednesday.

Davis walked over and whispered the comment directly to Mayor Rob Ford’s brother during a budget committee meeting.

She dropped the f-bomb shortly after the committee rejected a motion to spend $409,000 for an eight-site expansion of the After-school Recreation and Care (ARC) Program. Ford had argued against the spending and accused councillors of wanting to “waste taxpayers’ money.”

The private R-rated remark prompted Ford to jump to his feet and announce Davis had told him to “keep my f---ing mouth shut” and called the comment “disgusting.”

“I don’t need that talk up here. Why don’t you just leave? You call yourself a lady, give me a break,” Ford shouted at Davis.

Budget Chief Frank Di Giorgio asked Davis to apologize.

“I apologize,” she said, before the committee moved on.

After the incident, Ford said he was shocked by Davis’ “totally inappropriate” language.

“I got told to basically shut my f---ing mouth,” he said. “I’ve never used that language down here to another councillor."
