Toronto Mayor Rob Ford told Conrad Black in a Monday night broadcast that the ongoing scandal is “ripping our family apart” and that he was the target of a political vendetta by Toronto Police chief Bill Blair.
“The chief, I have an issue with, I think it’s political,” Mr. Ford told Mr. Black. “He wasn’t happy when I told people to find efficiencies.”
“I want to save money and I guess he disagrees with that.”
The mayor also asserted that his children were regularly reduced to tears by the hordes of reporters outside his house.
