Toronto Mayor Ford Avoids DWI: Former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is in the news again as part of Mark Towhey’s tell all book. Towhey was Ford’s Chief of Staff. Mayor Rob Ford: Uncontrollable — How I Tried to Help the World’s Most Notorious Mayor will be available to the general public around the end of October, 2015. In the book we learn that Toronto police often stopped Mayor Ford for drunk driving and then simply gave him a ride home. We also learn that Towhey started an office policy that no one was to ride with Mayor Ford when Ford was driving. This policy came on the heels of a staffer’s report that while riding with Ford, Ford downed an entire 12 ounce bottle of vodka in one gulp. The staffer wisely exited the vehicle and found other, safer transportation. Towhey admits that he did not inform Toronto police of the Mayor’s drunk driving. Towhey defends that decision by noting that Toronto Police already knew about Ford’s serial drunk driving and took no steps to arrest Ford.
Toronto Mayor Ford Avoids DWI: It appears that the Toronto police deny giving Mayor Ford special treatment as he drove drunk almost every day through Toronto streets. Mayor Ford consistently denied claims of his substance abuse until videos were discovered documenting such drug and alcohol abuse. Ford then entered rehab toward the end of his four year stint as Mayor. As Towhey notes the work of the staffers ceased being about doing the work of Toronto government and all about keeping Ford alive. #TorontoMayorFordAvoidsDWI
