Mayor Rob Ford
previously said
video did not exist
and denied scandal
TORONTO (AP) - Toronto
police said Thursday they have
obtained a video that appears to
show Mayor Rob Ford smoking
a crack pipe - a video that Ford
had claimed didn't exist and has
been at the core of a scandal that
has embarrassed and gripped
Canada for months.
Police Chief Bill Blair said
the video, recovered after being
deleted from a computer hard
drive, did not provide grounds
to press charges. Ford, a populist
mayor who has repeatedly made
headlines for his bizarre behav-
ior, vowed not to resign.
Speaking outside his office
door, Ford said with a smile: "I
have no reason to resign." He
said he couldn't defend himself
because the affair is part of a
criminal investigation involv-
ing an associate, adding: "That's
all I can say right now." Toron-

to police discovered the video
while conducting a huge surveil-
lance operation into a friend and
sometimes driver suspected of
providing Ford with drugs.
Ford faced allegations in May
that he had been caught on video
puffing from a glass crack pipe.
Two reporters with the Toronto
Star said they saw the video, but
it has not been released publicly.
Ford maintained he does not
smoke crack and that the video
does not exist.
The scandal has been the fod-
der of jokes on U.S. late night
television and has cast Canada's
largest city and financial capital
in an unflattering light.
Ford was elected mayor three
years ago on a wave of discontent
simmering in the city's outlying
suburbs. Since then he has sur-
vived an attempt to remove him
from office on conflict-of-inter-
est charges and has appeared
in the news for his increasingly
odd behavior. Through it all, the
mayor has repeatedly refused to
resign and pledged to run for re-
election next year.
But the pressure ramped up
on Thursday with all four major

dailies in the city calling on Ford
to resign.
Cheri DiNovo, a member of
Ontario's parliament, tweeted:
"Ford video nothing to celebrate
Addiction is illness. Mayor
please step down and get help?"
. On Thursday, Blair said the
video of the mayor "depicts
images that are consistent with
those previously reported in the
"As a citizen of Toronto I'm
disappointed," Blair said. "This
is a traumatic issue for citizens
of this city and the reputation of
this city."
Blair said the video will come
out when Ford's associate and
occasional. driver, }Alexander
Lisi, goes to trial on drug charg-
es. Lisi now also faces extortion
charges for trying to retrieve the
recording from an unidentified
person. Blair did not say who
owned the computer containing
the video.
Blair said authorities believed
the video is linked to a home in
Toronto, referred to by a con-
fidential informant as a "crack
house" in court documents in
Lisi's drug case.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford walks past Halloween decorations on his way to talk to media at City Hall in Toronto on Thursday.
Ford says he has no reason to step down, even though police seized a video that appears to show him smoking a crack pipe.
