In an attempt to shelter himself from accusations of anti-Semitism following a Toronto mayoral debate, Doug Ford declared on Monday that his wife is Jewish.

With Rob Ford in the audience at Sunday's debate, mayoral candidate Ari Goldkind grilled the Toronto mayor on his alleged use of "the K word," an anti-Semitic slur.

Doug Ford came to his brother's aid, riddling off examples of his family's affinity for Jewish people.

"You know something? My doctor — my Jewish doctor, my Jewish dentist, my Jewish lawyer — Hold on, my Jewish accountant," he said, before the audience booed and yelled, forcing the flustered Ford to stop mid-sentence.
