…his high-priced legal mouthpiece, no less, has decided to play a game of high-stakes chicken. Release the video, he says. Right here.
He may be saying it because (a) he knows the video showing Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine is central to the Lisi extortion prosecution, and the Crown would therefore never agree to release it until trial. Or, he may be saying it because (b) he is suddenly somehow indifferent to what happens to his client.
Me, I think alternative (a) is most likely. It’s a clever little P.R. stunt. Look like you have nothing to hide, etc. etc.
So, here’s my alternative suggestion: as I posted yesterday, there is a second video. It, too, shows the Mayor of Toronto getting fried with the same folks. It isn’t evidence in the Lisi prosecution.
Call Ford’s lawyer’s bluff, Toronto cops: ask him if he’d agree to the release of that video, right here, right now.
He won’t say yes. And his little P.R. stunt will be revealed to be just that.
