'Go to hell,' Doug Ford tells autistic son's dad after integrity complaint - 2014-07-04
The man, Tommy Lenathen, is a 35-year city employee who sits on the executive board of Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 416. He filed the complaint with the city's integrity commissioner after Ford said an Etobicoke home for teenagers with autism has " ruined the community " and suggested, with no evidence, that the teenagers are criminals.
Responding to an integrity complaint by the father of an autistic son, Councillor Doug Ford said the man should "go to hell" and accused him of being part of a "jihad."
The day prior, Ford approached Cynthia Mulligan, a CityNews reporter who had interviewed him, and accused her for no apparent reason of engaging in a "jihadist attack." Mulligan said Ford apologized to her on Friday.
