Ford Hits the Wall
Well now we know. The video exists. What a sad day for our city. And what a humiliating face plant for those who have known and denied the truth for so long. The people who called The Star's investigative reporters liars. The people who knew the mayor had troubles and was often absent form his work but would say anything to defend him. It's one thing to be loyal to a guy with demons. It's quite another to engage in character assassination in order to keep it a secret.
But having listened to NewsTalk 1010 today it's clear there is still a cohort of people who will continue to deny the story. I heard a caller to Jim Richard's show say the Chief didn't describe what he saw in the video so clearly it doesn't show the mayor smoking drugs. And if the video is ever made public these same people will maintain it's a fake.
For those in the real world it's just a really ugly day in this city's history.
