Doug Ford confirms impounded SUV belongs to mayor - 2014-05-22
Of all the mystery surrounding the impaired driving arrest of a woman who was behind the wheel of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's Cadillac Escalade, one of the most curious ones so far is this: What happened to the licence plates?
According to Ontario Provincial Police, 36-year-old Lee Anne McRobb was charged Tuesday with impaired driving by officers based in Bracebridge, in Ontario's Muskoka cottage country. Though the OPP declined to release information about the vehicle's owner – Ms. McRobb was given permission to drive the car by the owner, they said – the mayor's brother Doug Ford confirmed to The Globe that it was the mayor's SUV.
The licence plates, which would identify the SUV as the mayor's, have been removed from the vehicle which is required to remain in an impound lot for a week – but it's unclear how that happened.
