Residents of a Dixon Road apartment complex where Toronto police say they found two videos featuring Mayor Rob Ford tell CBC News they've heard about a third possible video being shopped around.

CBC News has not seen the video and can't verify its existence. But CBC's John Lancaster said that people around the complex claim it shows the mayor in an allegedly "inebriated state."

Meanwhile, the lawyer for Muhammad Khattak, one of the men arrested after being photographed with Ford outside a suspected crack house, said he is trying to get one of the videos that police obtained released to the public.

Toronto police Chief Bill Blair recently disclosed that police had obtained a video of the mayor which was consistent with prior media reports that the mayor appeared to be smoking crack cocaine from a pipe.

Blair said the video file was found on a hard drive that had been seized during the Project Traveller police raids earlier this year.

The mayor had long denied the video's existence, though this week he shocked the city and admitted he had smoked crack cocaine.

"Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine. But no — do I? Am I an addict? No. have I tried it? Probably in one of my drunken stupors, approximately about a year ago," Ford told reporters on Tuesday.

Ford himself has called for the release of the video so that the public can see it and judge its contents.


  • The headline of this story has changed to provide greater clarity of the fact that the third video is not confirmed, but is the source of local speculation.
