WATCH: Fords question defamation notice
Ford brothers pressed on the issue in Etobicoke
3 0

Toronto's chief of police has served Doug Ford with a notice of defamation and the councillor is fuming.

Bill Blair took the legal action over comments the councillor made earlier this month, alleging the Chief leaked news of plans to serve Mayor Rob Ford a subpoena to testify in the Sandro Lisi extortion case. Ford called it political  “payback.”

Councillor Ford says he's not worried about the notice but became angry when musing about how the public found out about the legal action so quickly.

When Ford found out Blair would be paying lawyers from the police chief's own pocket, the councillor questioned why the head of corporate communications for the police force was speaking on Blair's behalf.

Just minutes away in his Etobicoke Campaign office, Mayor Ford also questions how the story was leaked so quickly.

He says he has not been subpoenaed.

Ford underlines this matter is between his brother and Blair.

    The video clip above further proves that the man is just not smart, not educated, not insightful, not well spoken, not experienced in any business but Daddy's, and most importantly: not stable.

    Blair really has to learn when to shut his pie-hole and move on. He's had a good run for 10 years, and is getting a generous payout when he's gone.
    Why now make yourself look like a vindictive little pissant issuing a lawsuit wanting an apology....really?????
    Pull-up up your big-boy undies, and move on...
    ..and please don't tell us he won't be using tax payer money for this lawsuit. Who do you think Blair pays your salary?
