"We are not going to comment on Mr. Blair's motivations for using the Office he holds to raise these issues," said Community Safety Minister Sylvia Jones in a statement. "We will explore the appropriate venue to review the content of a letter that we fully and completely dispute."

"If the hiring process remains enveloped in questions of political interference, the result will be irreparable damage to police independence," Blair, who was also in the running for the job, wrote in the letter.

Taverner, a close personal friend of Ford's, has been a regular fixture at family gatherings and often had informal meetings with the premier and his late brother and former Toronto mayor Rob Ford.
