74 0

He's running to become the next councillor for Etobicoke North, and says that many in the city's black community will vote against Rob Ford in this October's municpal election.

Andray Domise, who wrote an open letter calling for the black community to vote against Rob Ford, was on the Live Drive Monday afternoon. He laid out his argument, saying the mayor called himself racist, and says Ford opposes many community programs designed to help those that he wishes to represent.

During the interview, the man running the mayors re-election campaign and councillor Doug Ford called into the show to offer his opinion. "I understand you just had a call saying the black community will not be supporting Rob Ford. That is the furthest from the truth, he's going to have more votes in (sic) the black community than President Obama did."

Councillor Ford offered no evidence for his claim only saying that no one has helped the black community more than his brother has.
