Mayor Ford back on the air amid new legal trouble
Mayor Rob Ford returns to the airwaves Sunday afternoon on NEWSTALK 1010's The City with fresh legal troubles on his mind.
On Friday, an auditor's report found that Ford broke rules in Ontario's Municipal Elections Act by overspending on his 2010 campaign for mayor and accepting corporate cheques.
The forensic financial audit showed that Ford exceeded the legal limit for campaign expenses by just over $40,000, or roughly 3%.
It also referred to 11 cheques worth a total of $6,000 that were collected by the Ford campaign from corporate accounts, violating other sections of the Act.
There is a chance that Rob Ford could be ordered out of office as punishment but such a move would be unprecedented in Ontario.
City Hall's 3-person Compliance Audit Committee will decide whether to drop the matter or move to punish the mayor at a meeting on February 25th.
Pursuing non-criminal charges could take as long as a year.
The City with Mayor Rob Ford airs at 1pm Sunday afternoons on NEWSTALK 1010.
