Threat made by voicemail

Toronto Police are investigating a threat against Rob Ford and his family.

A source tells Newstalk 1010 a woman left a threatening phone message at the mayor's office Friday morning. It isn't clear exactly what the woman said, but Ford took it seriously enough to call police.

Two uniformed officers spent about an hour in the mayor's office Friday afternoon. During that time, the source says they heard the recording.

It doesn't appear the call is related to the mayor's opposition to a rainbow flag being flown on the roof of City Hall during the Sochi Games.  The message was left several hours before Ford said he wanted the flag taken down.
