WATCH: Premier isn't stepping in at city hall
Kathleen Wynne wouldn't comment about specifics of Ford video
6 0

There are no plans for the province to swoop in on Toronto city hall

The Premier was pressed on the issue, the day after a video of Rob Ford surfaced showing the mayor speaking and swearing in a Jamaican accent at a fast food restaurant in Rexdale.

Kathleen Wynne says if Ford has personal issues, she hopes he deals with them and gets help. On her role in the matter, just underlines she will continue to meet with Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly on municipal issues.

Wynne was meeting with former Prime Minister Paul Martin on Pension reform. When asked for his advice to Ford, Martin laughed he's glad he's not in public life anymore so he won't have to answer questions like that.

Because of all of this, Wynne says she's concerned  people are getting  the wrong idea about Toronto, pointing to both people who may want to visit or move here, or businesses that may want to invest.

Wynne stresses the city is not about one individual and - politics-wise - an entire council makes municipal decisions.

On if she's seen the video, Wynne reveals she's watched parts of it but wouldn't comment any further.

      @john Toronto's reputation pales by comparison to the reputation the Liberals have forced on Ontario. The damage caused by this morally bankrupt and "corrupt" government will last generations whereas the silliness of Ford doesn't have either a significant (to the running of the city) or long-lasting effect.

      Big difference!

      @Frankie and the sad truth is Ford Haters let Kathryn Wynne get away with her party's scandals that cost Ontarian more than what Rob Ford did..

      now you know why Ford Nation is still intact even with the latest gaffes that Rob is doing to himself.. .. soon it will catch up to him.. and he himself is to be blamed..

      I wonder what was Rob Ford thinking ??
