Rob Ford, Toronto’s crack smoking mayor, was in the process of reforming his image. He promised he was done with drinking. Yet on Monday he was caught rambling, swearing and taking shots at the police chief, often in jatois a Jamaican slang.
When confronted by the press on Tuesday, he was unapologetic and said that what he does in his private life with his friends is none of their concern.
His brother Doug Ford had just completed telling the media that the video was not taken on Monday night, when Mayor Rob Ford emerged and confirmed the video was taken on Monday and that he was drinking.
“I was with some friends and what I do in my personal life, with my personal friends, that’s up to me. This really has nothing to do with you guys,” Ford told reporters Tuesday afternoon.

“C-cks–ker….F—ing Chief Blair,” Ford says at the start of the video, recorded in Steak Queen, a Rexdale-area restaurant. The video was posted to YouTube Tuesday, but the user did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“They chase me around for five months man…bumbaclot,” Ford then says in slurred words, using a Jamaican patois slang term for “f–k.”
Ford has been attempting to reshape his image as he is trying another run for mayor in Toronto. While he has a large following in the so-called “Ford Nation” this video may have caused him a little more damage than he needed.
Several US media outlets were having a hayday with Toronto’s crack smoking mayor. It obviously takes the pressure off some of the foolish statement of American politicians. One late night tv host thanked Canada for the mayor, stating it made up for Justin Bieber.
Thank God he belongs to Toronto, the rest of Canada disowns him.
