Video of Toronto mayor ‘smoking crack’ found

‘DISAPPOINTED’:Toronto Mayor Rob Ford does not face charges relating to the video, but his friend and driver was charged over ‘extortive efforts to retrieve a recording’

AFP, OTTAWA

As Ford left his home for work in the morning, he pushed back a crush of journalists waiting at the edge of his driveway.

At city hall, he made a brief statement: “I think everybody has seen the allegations against me today. I wish I could come out and defend myself. Unfortunately, I can’t because it’s before the courts. I’ll be out doing what the people elected me to do and that’s save the taxpayers money and run the great government I have been running the past three years. That’s all I can say.”
