TORONTO – Rob Ford plans to remain mayor of Toronto. He maintains he isn’t an alcoholic or addicted to drugs and has only smoked crack cocaine once about a year ago, “in one of my drunken stupors.”
But newly released police documents containing allegations that haven’t been proven in court paint a picture of a man who has used illegal drugs within the last seven months and allegedly offered cash and a car for a video of himself smoking crack cocaine.
Here’s a look at some key interactions by players in the Ford saga, according to the Toronto Police Project Traveller and Sandro Lisi investigations.
None of the statements in these police documents, detailed in the timeline below, have been proven in court.
