Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's alleged crack video intensified investigation

Bill Blair is giving a press conference at this time. So far he has announced that the infamous "crack video" is in the possession of the Toronto Police, and that the emergence of the video caused them to intensify their investigation into drug-related activities of Rob ford's friend and occasional driver Alexander "Sandro" Lisi. The police have also released the search warrant that was spawned by the "crack video." The document is here:

Lots of stories emerging all at the same time right now in Toronto and Canadian media.

1. I knew the POS would eventually have to face this video...

He should step down immediately, imo.

5. Yep, he will have to be forced out...

and I hope sooner rather than later. The Con party will be throwing him under the bus pretty quick, they can't afford two cover-ups, lol.

7. LOL, one reporter today said

the only thing about today that didn't surprise him was that Ford refused to resign. He then said the ONLY way Ford will leave that office is in handcuffs.

I can't wait.

4. I don't think he will resign

though I think he should. He said, not too long ago, that the 2014 mayoral election would "be a bloodbath". Well. He's not wrong. The police and the courts have just dumped a few gallons of blood in the water, and now it's feeding time. I hope they tear him to shreds.

8. I didn't think this day would come...

but now that it has my gut feeling is that there will be some kind of health crisis, real or feigned. I don't think this will end well for Rob Ford.

15. Thanks gopiscrap

I've been lurking since 2008 but kind of feel like an outsider being from Canada and all. With all the Rob Ford news lately though I finally posted.

10. Did Ford just call in to AM640 to anonymously defend himself !?

Actually it does sound like him when he gets flustered!

12. Some are speculating that

it may have been his older brother Randy. I was unaware that they had a brother named Randy, but I think I found a pic of him riding on the TTC.

14. I just heard this!

Yeah, it sounds -just- like him. His stammery diction, his bluster, it sounds just like him. His whole PR team must have a permanent hand-print on their faces from facepalming constantly.
