Doug Ford says he's taking the high road in feud with Ainslie
When it comes to the feud between the Ford brothers and Coun. Paul Ainslie, Mayor Rob Ford says he's ready to just let it go.
But his older brother, Coun. Doug Ford took some time to address it Sunday on Newstalk 1010's The City.
It all started earlier this week, when councillor Ainslie complained to the city's integrity commissioner after the mayor made robocalls to his ward. Then, the councillor filed a complaint with the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council about the Ford brothers' show, accusing them of using public airwaves as a bully pulpit.
"Our show is not two-hours of knocking the heck out of someone," said Coun. Ford. "Our show is consists of talking about community issues."
Defending the show, Ford said he and the mayor talk about everything, from budgetary issues, to how the city is booming and how councillors voted.
He admitted the show includes the pair voicing their opinions on issues facing the city and even that they "rant and go off" but that they're "telling it like it is."
"[It's about] reaching out to the community and actually getting the straight goods of what's going on rather than the twisted slant that some of the media in this city does."
