Project Brazen 2 still "very active"

Det Sgt Gary Giroux tells CP24 that his mandate to investigate any criminality surrounding the mayor is "actively continuing"

Mayor Rob Ford

The detective leading the probe into mayor Rob Ford says the investigation is still "very active."

Det Sgt Gary Giroux joined our sister station CP24 this afternoon and was asked about Project Brazen 2.

He says he still has all of his investigators intact and they are still conducting interviews.

"My original mandate is to investigate any criminality involved in the mayor or the mayor's office and that is actively continuing," Giroux says.

Project Brazen 2 led to the arrest of the mayor's friend, Sandro Lisi, who was charged with four drug offences. Lisi was also charged with extortion in relation to a video that appears to show mayor Ford smoking crack cocaine.

    something didn't smell right from the beginning why Ford seams to be getting a pass on a lot of this with no charges. cops knew he was in the crackhouse, his friends and criminal associates. I have full confidence in our police force to treat him no different than anyone else. that's why i don't think we have even heard the worst of it yet. the police know their job and will do it right

      @r2d2 There's a lot going on. The jailhouse beating of his former brother-in-law, the murder and wounding of two of the men in that crack house photo, the beating of his wife, the trafficking of drugs...they can't get him on the drunk driving, but investigating Robby is like eating an oyster...the more they chew, the bigger it gets.

    It seems the police are giving it their all to charge the mayor with anything- since a jay walking charge isn't enough.
    1.> It's amusing how hard the police are on this. I doubt the corruption charges for the Montreal mayor took this long. But it is cute to watch them run around in circles
    2.>Whenever there is some statement or 'break through' the timing of the announcement is always so circumspect. Spidey- senses tingling here...

    I'm just curious what they get out of all this in the end....and the cost that would warrant such a witch-hunt. Guess anything will do, so the police can keep their budget up...

      @Karl Burgin Don't let your curiosity get the better of you, and be careful what you wish for.

      This is taking a seemingly long time for at least two reasons.
      First - it must be air-tight considering the position to which Mr. Ford clings.
      Secondly - considering the cadre of less than upstanding people Mr. Ford chums with - the many avenues being opened up in this process, without question, are leading to other revelations which must also be investigated, in order to piece it all together.

      Also, there is nothing "cute" about the the need to uncover everything potentially attached to this embarrassment of a civic leader. A mature individual should show more class than to post such drivel as you just have.

      @Karl Burgin The way I dealt with donny p's racist and abusive comments was simply to ignore whatever he writes. I don't even read his posts and it's so much more refreshing. Does he remind you a bit like EM who seems to have disappeared?

    If he's going to be charged I hope it's sooner rather than later so that we can get on with the mayoral candidates. I'd hate to see the timing provide an advantage to the left.

      @Frankie someone eventually has to come in and clean up the mess and stench of the last 4 yrs at city hall. I hope that person is centre left
