TORONTO – Doug Ford is accusing “goons” of trying to intimidate him and his brother, Mayor Rob Ford, by allegedly smashing his car windows overnight.“My car windows got smashed in last night,” he said.
“Its intimidation, they’re a bunch of goons, they want to intimidate my family, my kids, try to intimidate the campaign, it’s not going to happen.”
Police told Global News they did not respond to the Etobicoke street which Ford lives on but wouldn’t say whether or not the councillor called them.
Ford said anti-Ford protestors were “100 per cent” responsible for the vandalism.
“It’s never happened in the past, it’s not a coincidence, we have four cars in the driveway, our neighbours have them, no one else had a problem, we’re reviewing the video tapes,” he said. “It’s sure as heck not a random thing. I’ve lived there 14 years and it’s never happened before. You tell me, they picked my car out of the whole street, my car in the driveway.”
The councillor’s accusations come shortly after the mayor’s early morning press conference at Eglinton Avenue and Westover Hill Road was interrupted by shirtless protestors holding signs and yelling at the mayor to resign.
“Maybe you can ask Tory which goons he sent, or Olivia chow which goons they sent, it’s the same four guys that are affiliated with a campaign,” councillor Ford said. “It’s the same four guys that stood outside of 1010.”
There was also several Ford supporters at the press conference.
