Doug Ford says his car was targeted

Councillor says someone smashed in the rear window of his SUV on Monday night.

They said it was going to be a dirty campaign and the Ford brothers say it has begun.  City councillor Doug Ford said that on Monday night someone smashed-in the rear window of his SUV as it sat in his driveway.  Although he didn’t directly point the finger at his brother’s fellow candidates, Doug Ford did say that he believes the vandalism had something to do with the mayoral race.

“You know, I said it earlier, it’s going to be a dirty campaign.  And they want to carry on creating a circus atmosphere that’s their goal.  All you media has to do is maybe dig about two inches deep and draw the line and I don’t think it’s too hard to figure out who’s doing this.” Doug Ford told reporters at City Hall. 

The councilor also claimed that the shirtless protesters who turned out for the mayor’s news conference on Eglinton West on Tuesday morning were sent by the other mayoral candidates’ camps. 

“The other campaigns are getting a little dirty to say the least, and that’s their choice, but people can see right through this.” said Doug Ford. 

Doug Ford said that he had surveillance footage of the incident but would not be making it public.

    Funny, how Doug expects us to take his word. If he had any proof, that his window was smashed, he'd be making it public. There's no reason to keep the evidence from the public.

    The rear window on my Explorer was smashed three times when thieves broke in...twice in my driveway, once at a street two blocks from Rob's place. That was a good thing because they caught the thieves trying to return stuff to The Bay that they stole from the back seat.

    Welcome to Toronto, Doug. Stop trying to make this a campaign issue...you probably smashed the window yourself.

    Doug Ford is the biggest whining crybaby that throws out the conclusions that grow in his head.
