TORONTO - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford talked on his weekly radio show Sunday about some controversies involving him that he's spoken about before, though not in quite the same terms. Here's a comparison of just what's been said on two of those controversies:
On the video that two media outlets have said allegedly show him smoking what appears to be crack cocaine.
May 24: "I cannot comment on a video that I have never seen or does not exist."
Nov 3: "Whatever this video shows, folks, Toronto residents deserve to see and people need to judge for themselves what they see on this video."
On reports that he was drunk at the Taste of the Danforth street festival in August 2013.
Aug 11: "I drove myself down there, I was not drinking. I went out, had a few beers and I did not drive home. My people met me after that."
Nov 3: "That was pure stupidity. I shouldn't have got hammered down at the Danforth. If you're going to have a couple drinks you stay home, and that's it. You don't make a public spectacle of yourself."
