Rob Ford video in police hands

Pics of Toronto mayor's contact with friend Alexander 'Sandro' Lisi in police docs


CBC News Posted: Oct 31, 2013

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford appears in a video recovered by police during the Project Traveller investigation, police Chief Bill Blair said today after Ford's friend and occasional driver was arrested on extortion charges.

Blair said a video seized during an investigation contains images of Ford that are "consistent with that which had previously been described in various media reports," an apparent reference to an alleged video that shows Ford smoking crack cocaine.

“We have recovered a digital video file, which is consistent with that which had previously been described in various media reports, and that file forms part of the evidence of the charge that we have laid today,” Blair said.

"I think it’s fair to say that the mayor does appear in that video, but I’m not going to get into the detail of what activity is depicted on that video," said Blair.


Blair made the shocking revelation Thursday, one day after documents were made public that police used to obtain search warrants for Alexander Lisi, who is now facing extortion charges.


Lisi is also known as Alessandro or Sandro.

The 300-page document released Thursday details evidence police collected in order to get a search warrant for Lisi.

The document runs 474 pages, with long redactions.

It includes police notes with surveillance of Lisi's contact with Ford.

Earlier Thursday, prior to the release of the documents, Ford got into an angry shouting match with reporters in the driveway of his home.

Read the documents by clicking on the link below.

The photos in the documents show Ford and Lisi meeting on several occasions and exchanging more than one package.

The documents begin with information from media stories on U.S. website Gawker and the Toronto Star about the alleged video, which appears to show Ford smoking crack cocaine. It also includes a now-famous photo of Ford standing in the driveway of a north Toronto home along with four young men.

Damn straight I was right. I'm always right, just ask my Wife. :)

Maybe with the video in police hands, it will finally get leaked :)

Seems you live under the same set of rules that I do:
-Rule 1: I am always right.
-Rule 2: If not, rule 1 comes into effect.

These two simple rules yield an enjoyable life (no disputes) and peace in the house and direct environment, heck: at work even. :twisted:

Rob Ford: 'I have no reason to resign'

Video showing Toronto mayor allegedly using crack is in police possession

CBC News Posted: Oct 31, 2013 7:07 AM ET

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he has no reason to resign even as Toronto police Chief Bill Blair revealed his force is in possession of a video that allegedly shows Ford smoking crack cocaine.

"I wish I could come out and defend myself," Ford said outside his city hall office on Thursday afternoon. "Unfortunately I can't because it's before the courts. That's all I can say."


Ford appears in a video recovered by police during the Project Traveller investigation, Blair said today after Ford's friend and occasional driver Alexander Lisi was arrested on an extortion charge. Lisi is also facing drug charges laid previously.

Blair said a video seized during an investigation contains images of Ford that have been described by media outlets, an apparent reference to an alleged video that shows Ford smoking crack cocaine.

“We have recovered a digital video file, which is consistent with that which had previously been described in various media reports, and that file forms part of the evidence of the charge that we have laid today,” Blair said.

Photos from court documents released Thursday morning show surveillance photos of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, left. (The Canadian Press)

"I think it’s fair to say that the mayor does appear in that video, but I’m not going to get into the detail of what activity is depicted on that video," said Blair, who added that he was disappointed at the contents of the video.

Blair made the shocking revelation Thursday, the same day court documents were released detailing some of the evidence police used to obtain search warrants for Lisi on drug charges.

A Toronto police news release issued shortly after's Blair news conference alleges Lisi made "extortive efforts to retrieve a recording."

Blair also said the video does not contain enough evidence to lay charges against Ford.

The documents released Thursday detail evidence police gathered in order to get a search warrant for Lisi, who is also known as Alessandro or Sandro, on drug charges.

More information on the contents of those documents can be found here.

Read the documents by clicking on the link below.


The document runs 474 pages, with hundreds of pages of redactions.

It includes police notes with surveillance of Lisi's contact with Ford and documents dozens of meetings between the two men.

The police document indicates friends and people who worked in Ford's office were concerned that Lisi was "fuelling" the Toronto mayor's alleged drug use.


Payman Aboodowleh, a volunteer football coach at Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School, where Ford coached the team, told police that Lisi met Ford through him. He told police he was "mad at Lisi because he was fuelling the mayor's drug abuse," the document says.

The photos in the documents show Ford and Lisi meeting on several occasions, and exchanging more than one package. The two men also spoke by phone more than 200 times between March 25 and June 25. On one day alone — the two men exchanged 18 phone calls, according to the documents.

The documents begin with information from media stories on U.S. website Gawker and the Toronto Star about the alleged video, which appears to show Ford smoking crack cocaine. It also includes a now-famous photo of Ford standing in the driveway of a north Toronto home along with four young men.

One of those men was fatally shot earlier this year and the other two men were arrested as part of Project Traveller, which focused on gang-related drug activity in northwest Toronto.


Hours after the Gawker article was published, phone records show Lisi called Mohamed Siad, who the police report says "is believed to have been one of the people trying to sell Mayor Ford crack video." He also called one of the residents of the "crack house" several times.

Earlier Thursday, prior to the release of the documents, Ford got into an angry shouting match with reporters in the driveway of his home. He screamed at reporters and camera operators: "Get off my property." Watch video of that exchange here.


Sad, he will of course drag this out to the bitter end. He is in denial and this is gonna bring him down eventually. How can Ford "defend himself" as he puts it?? He is caught on video smoking crack, and there are many phone calls and meetings between himself and his drug dealer(s), how does he think he will defend himself against the facts exactly??? Loser...

Once Lisi has been sentenced for his drug and extortion charges, then mebbe the cops will leak the video, but certainly not until the trial is over...

Lets not forget the murders that also have close connections to all of this. I'm not sure any will ever be traced back to Ford, but it sure doesn't look good when you are surrounded by drug dealers and killers. It will be interesting to see what comes out fo these investigations, as I'm sure this is only a nugget of what the police have collected. Good police work takes time to connect all the dots.

I was always told the people you surround yourself with reflect on your character, so choose your friends carefully.

Harper also just canceled a photo op with Ford. I guess his corrupt Senator friends are making him look bad enough, pictures with his "fishing buddy" would be to much for him!

EDIT! Following news video is a fake, I was duped, but Fuzz pointed out the error of my ways... so take below with grain of salt! / End EDIT

Ford resigns to go work for Harper...lmao...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fzrYgoDjq0

He is getting off way to easy, but at least he is being forced to resign now...

He will have some cushy gov't job under Harper, get pension for life, will no doubt be overpaid and do next to nothing for it, and abuse his expense account like most politicians are prone to do...

He should be charged and thrown in jail actually...but the rich elite are "above the law" as we all know...different set of rules/laws for them compared to the general population...

:shock:

Doh!! I found out about the story as a trusted source ( Operation Maple on FB ) posted this story/link with no explanation about it. So either they were "duped" by it as well as me ( since I trust their stuff in general ), or they purposely linked it to confuse people...weird... first "dupe" they have ever pulled on me ( public ) without some kind of explanation to go along with the link...

Anways, it appears you are right, it is a fake story... check this latest news out:
