Duly Quoted: Paula Fletcher, on the Mayor’s Claims of Exoneration

Councillor insists that, regardless of the outcome of Project Brazen 2, Rob Ford will face judgment.

“I think he wishes he was cleared. What’s clear is that he was smoking crack, he was taking drugs, he was drinking and driving and probably using the most vulgar language any mayor has ever used here about his wife here at City Hall, and that he’s lied consistently. Those aren’t court issues. . . . But the court of public opinion will have its day.”

-Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth), responding to Rob Ford’s comment from yesterday about having been cleared of wrongdoing after the OPP announced it would be stepping back from the Project Brazen 2 investigation. Various outlets reported Thursday that the OPP does not anticipate laying charges against the mayor, and that the Crown believes there is insufficient evidence to proceed with the investigation—but Toronto police insist the probe is ongoing.

    Apparently, Rob Ford knows a few “dirty cops and other people” Who are these “dirty cops”? I’m assuming that Chief Blair is not one of them.

      Nope, not Blair, he belongs to the NDP who picked him out of the air gave him the job

    It really will be a happy day when this city sends the circus packing and we are rid of this foul man who done so much to divide this city. I am hoping that he is soundly thrashed come October 27.

    Good on Paula Fletcher. I think it’s a bit of a shame that more councilors don’t come out more harshly in their criticism of the idiot Fords.

  • Angie Mac

    Oh, it’s better than that now. Some Ford nation posters have taken to saying “billions of dollars” now. It’s a cult.
