Doug Ford defends comments about new 'nightmare' youth group home in Toronto - 2014-05-18
The city councillor brother of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford did not back down Sunday from comments about a home for developmentally disabled youth in his ward, saying it is a "nightmare" for the neighbourhood.
Coun. Doug Ford told TV station CP24 that his "heart goes out" to families with autistic children, but he said this issue is about kids in the residential home who have "violent tendencies."
"I've been a Rotarian for 25 years helping kids with challenges, but you can't disrupt the neighbourhood like that," Ford said.
