Doug Ford Denies Brother Has Used Heroin

Doug Ford says Rob Ford has not used heroin while in office

Doug Ford is denying that his brother used heroin while in office and is also shooting down new allegations that suggest he may have regularly associated with gang members.

Ford made the comments in what was essentially a ten-minute diatribe Friday at City Hall.

Questioned by reporters, Ford blasted Toronto media outlets, unnamed opponents, the police chief, and seemed to suggest that the timing of the release of police documents was planned to make Mayor Rob Ford look bad.

Ford said negative press coverage of his brother is "Soviet Stalin-era Pravda journalism" and that journalists want to "execute" the Mayor.

"If there was a rope here you'd bring him out into the middle of the square and hang him up," said Ford. "I know you would."

Doug Ford ripped Police Chief Bill Blair saying he "has an agenda in my opinion to get rid of the Mayor.,

Ford also questioned the roll out of police documents that detail serious allegations against the Mayor.

"Isn't it amazing how all this timing took place? In my opinion folks this is a clear agenda, very well organized agenda from some of our competitors. In my opinion, they don't want Rob Ford here."

    At the time of the first allegations of Rob Ford being drunk at an official function, Doug Ford also said he had never even seen his brother take a drink.

    Then these latest allegations must also be false ... right?

    Will the brothers Ford please just go away !

    I think we have had enough of the Fords. They will not resign and hopefully the public will vote them out in 2014. Until then, Newstalk 1010 please do not enable these people. Let them wither on the vine and hopefully disappear. Please concentrate on the libranos and the harper government.

    Oh by the way Dougie, you said you never saw your brother take a drink or did not know he did drugs. You have no credibility.

      @Mike from the hinterland Ford for re election. Let's silence the haters, perfectionists and especially the lefties!

    How would Doug know? As others have noted he apparently had never seen his brother drink.

    My point exactly- as you all think Ford is a liar for denying the comments out-right.
    Imagine, if he said he did. You people would be all over him like white on rice, and yet not once would you question his credibility. Why? Because it's called selective hearing. It's what you want to hear.
