TORONTO — At least Toronto Mayor Rob Ford isn't addicted to the Internet.

Ford has no City Hall web computer records, according to the City of Toronto.

A Freedom of Information request filed by QMI Agency for the Internet histories of all staff in the mayor's office including Ford between May 1, 2013, and August 6, 2013, turned up nothing for the mayor himself.

Ford does have a computer on his office desk but he wasn't using it last year in the midst of the start of his crack cocaine scandal.

"Please be advised that there were no records of Internet activity related to Mayor Ford's user ID," city staff told QMI in response to the FOI request.

Coun. Doug Ford — the mayor's campaign manager — explained the mayor's lack of online activity.

"He doesn't go on the Internet," Ford said Thursday. "He doesn't turn on a computer. He's just not into it."
