Doug Ford Says Police Chief Should Step Aside

Mayor's brother goes on the attack, calls Bill Blair biased.

“This is the most political police chief we’ve ever had… He’s biased.”

—The mayor’s brother, Doug Ford, on CBC Metro Morning, commenting on Bill Blair’s revelation that the police are in possession of the video in which Rob Ford smokes what appears to be crack cocaine. Ford, who was clarifying remarks he made immediately prior on AM640, is calling on the police chief to “step aside temporarily” (which is precisely what many councillors are asking the mayor to do) while a probe investigates whether Blair is in a conflict of interest. “I also want to clarify that we are huge police supporters,” Doug Ford said, while reiterating that the mayor has apologized and the city must move on.
