Duly Quoted: Rob Ford

“You…bitches! Don’t you fucking know? I’m Rob fucking Ford, the mayor of this city!”

—Allegedly, Mayor Ford to 911 dispatchers early Monday morning; he called them when Mary Walsh of This Hour Has 22 Minutes popped up at his home in costume to surprise him for a segment for the show. The surprise part, at least, was successful—Ford was certainly taken aback. So taken aback—and his daughter so scared, he says—that he called 911 to request help. CBC is reporting that Ford called in once and “asked for police assistance but became agitated as he waited, and called back to ask when officers would arrive.” It is during this second call that the swearing apparently took place. Neither Ford nor Toronto Police Association president Mike McCormack have spoken to the media about the incident.
