Doug Ford denies drug dealing, Rob Ford says crack video doesn't exist - 2013-05-26
Rob and Doug Ford defended themselves on their weekly Sunday radio show and their political colleagues in Toronto reacted to the growing controversy surrounding the brothers' alleged ties to illegal drugs.
On Saturday, an investigative report in The Globe and Mail revealed allegations that during the 1980s, Etobicoke city councillor Doug Ford trafficked in large amounts of hashish. This followed a press conference a day earlier in which his brother Mayor Rob Ford denied he has a drug addiction problem – an allegation that has dogged him since two media organizations reported viewing a video recording of the mayor smoking from a crack pipe.
The Ford brothers have been denying allegations that Doug was a dealer and Rob has smoked crack cocaine as complete fabrications and say their critics are simply out to discredit them.
