Toronto Mayor Rob Ford goes trick-or-treating despite video controversy

TORONTO – Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was out trick-or-treating with his kids last night after news broke earlier in the day that police had recovered a video of him allegedly smoking crack cocaine.

The mayor was seen dressed in a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey and seemed frustrated at media cameras covering his family’s outing.

“Guys, please. Come on man. Like give me a little bit, like please,” said Ford. “They have no respect at all. I know you have a job to do but you have to give me a little bit man. There’s kids here. Come on.”

The mayor’s friend and occasional driver, Alexander “Sandra” Lisi, was arrested on Thursday for an extortion charge, the same day police Chief Bill Blair said investigators have uncovered what appears to be the alleged video.

Court documents released show police opened an investigation into the allegations surrounding the video.
