Mayor Ford responds to being shut out by Premier
Says "your guess is as good as mine" in regards to why Premier won't meet him

Rob Ford says your guess is as good as his when it comes to why the Premier won't meet with him regarding the financial assistance request that council forwarded Monday.

The city is looking for help to pay for damage caused by last month's ice storm, and last July's flood.

Tuesday evening, Premier Kathleen Wynne's spokesman told reporters that the Premier "has and will continue to meet with Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly as Toronto Council's representative."

Mayor Ford spoke with NEWSTALK 1010's Joe Warmington on the Late Shift Tuesday, and says all he was looking for was a straight answer.

"I don't play these political games...I meet with everyone and I don't understand why she just doesn't pick up the phone or send me an e-mail and say 'no, I'm not meeting with you,' or 'yes I am, and here's the answer'"

When asked why he thought Premier Wynne didn't want to speak with him, Mayor Ford suggested perhaps it was his connection to the PC's by-election win in Etobicoke-Lakeshore back in August.

Rob Ford will be joining several other GTA mayors and regional chairs on Friday to discuss a joint application for financial assistance.
