TORONTO - Doug Ford shot back at mayoral candidate John Tory for condemning his remarks about a group home for youth.

Ford has been under fire for days after the Etobiocke North councillor ignited a wave of criticism for comments he made at a community meeting last week about a house in his ward for teenagers — some who have autism — operated by the Griffin Centre.

The Etobicoke Guardian reported Ford attended a community meeting about the house on May 15 at 23 Division where he listened to residents’ concerns and voiced his own objections.

Tory issued a statement Sunday slamming Ford’s comments as “deeply regrettable and from another age.”

Ford — Mayor Rob Ford’s brother and campaign manager — on Tuesday called Tory an “opportunist” for attacking him.
