The mayor responds to the release of a video of him ranting and making death threats.
“I just wanted to come out and tell you I saw a video. It’s extremely embarrassing. The whole world’s going to see it. You know what? I don’t have a problem with that, but it’s extremely embarrassing. I don’t know what to say. Again, again and again, I’m apologizing.”
—This was the mayor’s response, this afternoon, to a video obtained by the Toronto Star that shows him visibly agitated and making death threats against an unknown person who doesn’t seem to be nearby. (The Star is also the source of this quote.) The mayor hasn’t clarified the video’s context, but he did say that he was “very inebriated” when it was taken.
