Ford was quoted as saying the home should be relocated.

"You've ruined the community," Ford reportedly told the facility's staff.

"You can't destroy a community like this. People have worked 30 years for their home…My heart goes out to kids with autism. But no one told me they'd be leaving the house. If it comes down to it, I'll buy the house myself and resell it."

The comments drew condemnation on social media, including former Ontario premier turned Liberal MP Bob Rae, who weighed in with a tweet on Saturday.
