Been suspended because they lost contact with the dealer.

Aka, there's a fairly decent chance the tape never existed.

It's pretty disgusting the personal grubby tactics the left are using against Ford. This is the prime example - if it existed, then fair enough, but there was no evidence, but if you throw enough mud, some of it is going to stick. Can't beat him on policy, can't beat him legitimately politically, have to resort to these disgusting tactics. Racing down the track of US-style negative campaigns.

Unless the tape appears, all hearsay. But you'd also expect a libel suit... anyways, won't damage Rob Ford's electoral chances since his supporters certainly won't vote for his antithesis, urban progressives like Chow, Vaughan & Co. Doug Ford is a bigger problem since he's already been nominated by the PCs and last thing Hudak needs is a PR headache. Dumping him would damage Hudak's prospects among the very voters he needs to become premier- populist WWC.

Wonder if the Ford camp bought the tape? Sad

This is terrible news.

So then what would be the point of it? They're not getting any money from it. The link mentions some have already seen it, including journalists to verify it's real. Maybe the guy who had it got scared off.

I'm pretty sure 'we' can beat Ford on policy, given how incompetent and horrible he's been as mayor.

 "Mayor Smoking Crack" tends to sell newspapers. The Star is not known for being sympathetic to right wingers. I would expect similar scepticism if Fox said they saw a video of Obama smoking crack. I think this is a case of wishful thinking on the Star's part.

The truth must be known. And for Ford's own health, this video needs to surface. He needs help.

Also, what would explain the most circulated screenshot?

Sure, and the left-wing Globe and Mail invented the drug dealing history of his family.
At best, he is a drunkard, and he stills needs help.

Not sure if you were being sarcastic, but that's the thing. The Globe is not a left wing paper. At best it's centrist, and a hack like me would usually describe it as a right wing rag.

Gawker hit it's goal even though they've lost contact with the dealer.


And maybe the dealer who has the phone obtained it by killing the original owner, or so is the current rumors.  Toronto police seem to be involved in the hunt now.

Doesn't the money will be given to a drug addiction center/charity in Toronto area, then?

Is this a recent killing or that guy in the Ford picture?

I think this story is the basic source of all the rumors:

http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/05/28/rob_ford_crack_scandal_fears_fords_aide_sought_video_spark_police_probe.html

Price contacted Towhey late on May 17 and asked “hypothetically” what if someone had told him where the video was. “What would we do?” Towhey was asked.

Towhey, a former military man and the most experienced official in Ford’s office, was alarmed at Price’s comments. Price went further and said, “What if a source has told me where the video might be found?”

Shocked, Towhey told Price that the only thing he would advise is going to the police. Price also said that the video may have been the reason that Anthony Smith, a person pictured in a photo with Ford, was killed.

Towhey’s response, according to sources, was to tell Price that he would be contacting police.

Excellent leaders' portion of QP today. The extended Harper-Mulcair duel was riveting.

Duffy's expenses are being sent to the Mounties as expected, turns out he apparently *triple-dipped* in the last election. In other news, EU FTA is still rather shaky and unsurprisingly, Flaherty will be staying on till at least the end of this term.
