Mayor Rob Ford may not have granted requests to talk with Toronto Police detectives but his sister has been interviewed by them.

Sources say Kathy Ford agreed to talk with members of Det.-Sgt. Gary Giroux’s team investigating the mayor, following a frame-grab picture from a video which has been reportedly offered for sale and witnessed by reporters at the Toronto Star and Globe and Mail.

The video reportedly depicts a gathering of the mayor, Kathy, friend Sandro Lisi and an alleged drug dealer in Kathy’s basement in north Etobicoke.

It has been reported by the Star the video shows the mayor inhaling a substance from a pipe that resembles an apparatus consistent with something used to smoke crack cocaine.

Rob Ford admitted to smoking crack cocaine in the past, adding he was not an addict, but he did not discuss the latest video.
