Rob Ford Mayor Of Toronto

In 1999, Ford was arrested in Miami for DUI and marijuana possession charges. According to the statement recorded by the arresting officer, Ford was acting nervous, had blood shot eyes and had "a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath". Until he was questioned by reporters, Ford said that the marijuana charge had "completely, totally slipped my mind" because the more serious issue during that arrest was the DUI charge. Ford initially denied the DUI charge, saying instead he was arrested because he "refused to give a breath sample".
Ford was coaching at Newtonbrook Secondary School in North York in 2001 when he had a confrontation with a young player over poor performance on the field, say two witnesses who spoke with the Star on condition of anonymity. Right…
At a meeting with the administrative team of a school Rob Ford was asked to withdraw from his coaching responsibilities in response to complaints from several parents that Coach Ford was touching some team members inappropriately.  It was stated that had Coach Ford been a certified teacher the matter would have had to be referred to the College of Teachers for further action. The parents in question were satisfied to rest the matter rather than involve their sons in protracted legal procedures.
In January 2006, while in a heated exchange with a Muslim father regarding a headscarf safety issue Rob Ford was overheard asking the father whether he ever commanded both of his wives to join him in bed for a *********.
On April 15, 2006, Ford (a sitting councilor at the time) attended a Maple Leafs hockey game at the Air Canada Centre. Visibly intoxicated and belligerent, he began to insult a couple seated behind him, who were visiting from out of town. The offended couple wrote a two-page complaint to the city. Dan and Rebecca Hope of Enniskillen, Ont., said they didn't know Ford was a city councilor and had no political axe to grind.  According to their complaint, Ford shouted comments such as "You right wing Communist bastards”, "Are you a ******* teacher? What the **** is it that you do?" and “Do you want your little wife to go over to Iran and get raped and shot?” Two security guards escorted Ford out of the building, to the cheers of numerous observers. When confronted about the episode three days later by a National Post reporter, Ford denied even having been at the game, declaring that he hadn't been to a hockey game since Christmas, quite contrary to time and date on the security camera used at the game, a copy of which is still in a vault.  "This is unbelievable," he told the Toronto Star. "I wasn't even at the game, so someone's trying to do a real hatchet job on me, let me tell you."  The following day, Ford admitted that he had lied to the media about the incident, and finally apologized for his behaviour: “That was just stupidity. I feel terrible about it. My wife and I had a little bit too much to drink . . . I made a mistake that will never happen again.” Have we heard this before?
At a news conference in his driveway around 10 p.m. Wednesday May 2, 2012, a visibly upset Mr. Ford told reporters that he was home with his wife and two young children when a neighbour rapped on his door to say, “there’s some guy looking over your fence taking pictures.” Then Rob Ford “lost it” and went after Star reporter Daniel Dale.
“Daniel was on public land. He was not on the mayor’s property,” Bob Hepburn, director of communications for the Star, told The Globe and Mail Wednesday night. He said that as of about 10:30 p.m., police had not contacted Mr. Dale or the Star. He said the Star had no intention of pursuing charges against the mayor for his treatment of Mr. Dale. Instead facts as seen by members of the press were outsourced.
Ford studied political science at Carleton University but only finished his first year. Ford is a graduate of Scarlett Heights Entrepreneurial Academy in Etobicoke.
