World at Six
On Friday, May 24th on The World at Six...
After a week of silence, Toronto's mayor finally broke his silence today over allegations of drug use. Rob Ford said he does not use crack cocaine; that he is not an addict; and he cannot comment on a video that does not exist. The Mayor blamed the media for judging him without any evidence.
Ford's statement came after his own Executive Committee appealed to him to speak to allegations that he was caught on video, smoking crack cocaine. Dave Seglins will have the latest.
For that, and all the latest news, join us tonight for The World at Six with Martina Fitzgerald.
