Timeline of Rob Ford video scandal
From left to right:Anthony Smith, Rob Ford, Monir Kassim and Muhammad Khattak.
In May 2013, the American website Gawker and the Toronto Star reported that they had viewed a cellphone video that showed Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine and commenting on political issues. Gawker raised money to buy the video, but were unable to acquire it when the seller broke off contact. On October 31, 2013, Toronto Police announced that they were in possession of the video, "and at least one other". The video was retrieved in the course of an investigation of drug gangs, entitled "Project Traveller". Ford's associate Sandro Lisi was charged with extortion for attempting to retrieve the video, in exchange for marijuana.
An image was provided to Gawker and Toronto Star reporters depicting Ford posing with three individuals outside the house where the alleged video was recorded. The individuals standing with Ford were later identified as Anthony Smith, Muhammad Khattak and Monir Kassim, three alleged members of a local gang. The location was later identified as a house on Windsor Road in the Etobicoke area of Toronto. Khattak and Kassim were both arrested in a sweep of an apartment complex near the home in June 2013. Smith was killed in a shooting on the streets of downtown Toronto in March 2013. The home was identified as the residence of a friend of Ford's from his high school days. The home was attacked in a home invasion days after Gawker and the Toronto Star published the video story.
Ford consistently denied the existence of the video, and denied that he used crack cocaine. He remained mayor although several members of Toronto City Council, as well as the editorial boards of the National Post and Toronto Sun and Toronto Star, called for him to step down. The crisis led to the firing of the Mayor's chief of staff and the resignation of a half-dozen of his staff. After the police announcement, Ford announced that he would not resign from office.
On November 5, 2013, Ford admitted to smoking crack cocaine "probably in one of my drunken stupors" and to hiding his drug abuse from his family, his staff and the people of Toronto, but pledged to continue on as Mayor. On April 30, 2014, a second video showing Ford smoking crack emerged. Ford took a leave of absence to enter drug rehabilitation from May 1 through June 30, 2014. The original video of Ford smoking crack was released by the Toronto Police Service on August 11, 2016 after Ford's death, and the extortion charge against Sandro Lisi was dropped.
February to March
- February 17 Mayor Ford is surreptitiously recorded by Mohamed Siad smoking crack cocaine from a glass pipe. Siad also records a video of himself describing the recording of the first, and how to secretly record a video or "even catch a Mayor smoking crack".
- March 27 A police wiretap of a conversation between Mohamed Siad and Siyadin Abdi reveals their efforts to sell the crack video to Ford, rejecting an alleged offer of $5,000 and a new car by Ford. Siad is seeking $150,000.
- March 28 Anthony Smith and Muhammad Khattak, alleged members of the Dixon City Bloods gang, and who appear in the Gawker-released photograph with Mayor Ford, are shot outside the Loki Lounge in Toronto. Smith dies of his injuries. Wiretap surveillance by the police lead police to believe the motive for the shooting was related to a robbery of other gang members by Smith and others in November 2012.
- May 3Toronto Star reporters Robyn Doolittle and Kevin Donovan meet with Mohamed "Soya" Siad, 27, an alleged member of the Dixon Bloods, in the back seat of a car in the parking lot of 320 Dixon Road. Siad allows the reporters to view the Ford video on a cellphone three times and says he might sell it for a "six-figure price" so that he can move to Alberta.
- May 16 Gawker reports a cellphone video that appears to show Toronto mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine and commenting on political issues. The video was believed to have been recorded late in 2012. Toronto Star reporters Kevin Donovan and Robyn Doolittle say they watched the video on May 3. The Star also publishes a picture of Ford with three men, two of whom were shot in March 2013. One of them, Anthony Smith, died.
- May 17 As Ford leaves his house in the morning to drive to City Hall, he speaks to a press scrum assembled: "Absolutely not true. It's ridiculous. It's another Toronto Star whatever." Gawker sets up a fund called "Crackstarter" to raise $200,000 to purchase the video.
- David Price, a long-time friend of Ford, informs Ford's Chief of Staff Mark Towhey of the location of the video at an apartment complex on Dixon Road in Etobicoke. Towhey advises Price to speak to the Toronto Police. Towhey contacts the police, who take a statement from Price.
- May 19 Ford and his brother Doug cancel their weekly Newstalk 1010 talk show.
- May 20Jay Leno comments on the scandal on The Tonight Show.
- May 21Jon Stewart and Jimmy Kimmel comment on the scandal on their shows. A man is shot, requiring hospitalization, at a 17th floor apartment in the Dixon Road apartment complex.
- May 22 Ford is fired as football coach for Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School. He is also not allowed to coach at any other Catholic high school of the Toronto Catholic District School Board. Doug Ford addresses a press conference at City Hall, to defend his brother, his record at City Hall. He also criticized the Toronto Star: "Never, never has a Canadian politician or his family, has been targeted by the media this way. They zealously, and I say zealously, stalk my mother, my children. The media hides in the bushes at our cottage. They did this weekend, that my kids couldn’t even enjoy the weekend ’cause they were in the bushes taking videos of them, and harasses our family at home" and for reporting the alleged drug dealers as of Somali descent: "I also want to say that the story wrongfully generalizes and tarnishes the reputation of Toronto’s Somalian community."
- May 23 Ford fires his chief of staff, Mark Towhey. Towhey is escorted out of City Hall by security. Ford elevates deputy chief of staff Earl Provost. Several reports state that Towhey was fired for telling Ford to get help at a rehab centre. Gawker reports that they have raised more than $165,000 toward paying for the cellphone video, but were no longer in contact with the seller.
- May 24 After City Council's executive committee publicly asks Ford to respond to the allegations, Ford ends several days of silence and reads a prepared statement to the press at City Hall: "I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine." "As for a video, I cannot comment on a video that I have never seen or does not exist. It is most unfortunate, very unfortunate, that my colleagues and the great people of this city have been exposed to the fact that I have been judged by the media without evidence." According to his former press secretary Adrienne Batra, the statement was written by Ford's family, rejecting a prepared statement written by his staff.
- May 26 The Fords return to their Newstalk 1010 radio talk show. To a caller who asked if it was Ford in the video, Ford states "Number one, there’s no video, so that’s all I can say. You can’t comment on something that doesn’t exist." The Fords criticize the media and Rob calls reporters "a bunch of maggots." Ford also characterizes a caller as "racist" for asking if it was Ford in the picture. According to Ford: "That’s very sad, that she’s a racist," while Doug added, "Rob has taken thousands of pictures with young black men, with their hats on, with their little funny signs and everything else."
- May 27 Ford's press secretary and deputy press secretary resign and leave City Hall before Ford arrives. Ford apologizes for calling reporters maggots. Gawker reaches their fund-raising goal. Ford hires his brother's executive assistant as his new communications director and hires an interim press secretary. A poll of 1,400 Torontonians is released by the Toronto Star. It shows support for Ford at 36% in a projected 2014 mayoral election against Olivia Chow, a result identical to a poll held before the stories about the alleged video were published.
- May 28 The Toronto Sun reports that it also was offered the alleged video. An editor in the newsroom received a call from someone who had a video, asking if the newspaper paid for videos. The editor declines to pursue the video. It is Ford's 44th birthday and press crowd Ford at City Hall for comment about Price's statement to police. Ford tells reporters: "Ask my staff."
- May 30 Two more of Ford's staff resign, Brian Johnston, a policy advisor and council relations specialist, and Kia Nejatian, an executive assistant. A National Post reporter visits the apartment in the Dixon Road complex where the alleged video is stored and speaks to the resident. The resident describes how his apartment was previously rented by a drug dealer. The resident also claims to have seen the video and believes it to be authentic. According to the resident, gang members in the neighbourhood were angry at the video's sellers. The resident goes further to state that he and his friends considered making a fraudulent crack video starring an acquaintance and a Rob Ford look-alike nicknamed "Slurpy," but decided to not get involved in the controversy.
- May 31 Another of Ford's staff resigns, special assistant Michael Prempeh, the sixth departure from his staff. The accused who was arrested in Fort McMurray for the Smith shooting makes his first appearance in court and is ordered held in custody until another appearance on June 21. "Slurpy" becomes a trending term across Canada on Twitter.
- June 1 Several hundred people protest at Nathan Phillips Square demanding Ford's resignation. The event was organized on Facebook and was expected to draw over 2,000 to the Square.
- June 3 A poll by CTV News and Ipsos Reid shows that slightly more than half of Torontonians believe that the video exists and they disagreed with the Ford brothers. Support for Ford is highest in the suburbs of Etobicoke, North York and Scarborough.
- June 4 Gawker reports that the person alleged to have had the cellphone video says it no longer exists and he will not sell it. An intermediary tells them that a copy might exist but has been taken out of Toronto for safe-keeping.
- June 5 The Toronto Star reports the house location where the photograph of the mayor with the young men was taken. The house was reported to have had a home invasion on May 21, 2013, injuring two persons. One resident of the home was an acquaintance of Ford from high school. The home is located several hundred metres from the Dixon Road apartment complex. Residents have complained previously of a steady stream of traffic between the complex and the home, prompting a fence to be erected to block traffic. Two residents have criminal records, one for minor thefts, one for trafficking cocaine. Maclean's identified the victims of the home invasion as Fabio Basso, Ford's long-time friend, and Basso's girlfriend. Resident Elena Basso tells Star reporters at her house that "Rob Ford’s the greatest mayor ever. You guys are scavengers."
- June 10 A court in Fort McMurray grants access to search warrant details related to the arrest of Hanad Mohamed to the lawyer for The Star and other media outlets. The details can then be used to make access to information requests to the RCMP. Mohamed's lawyer objects to the request to prevent the media from going on a "fishing expedition." "It seems to me, your honour, that the media is looking for some sort of information that would link my client to Rob Ford, or Rob Ford to my case, and then they’re just going to use that for entertainment purposes."
- June 11 The two campaign managers credited with Ford's election, Richard Ciano, president of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, and Nick Kouvalis, who are partners in Campaign Research, say they will not work on Ford's re-election unless he deals with his "health and well-being." They said they had asked Ford to address his health issues as early as February. Ford fires Councillor Jaye Robinson from the City Council's executive committee after she suggests he take a leave of absence to deal with his personal problems.
- June 12 Doug Ford says he will not run for Council in 2014, but will work on his brother's mayoral campaign.
- June 13 As part of the "Project Traveller" pre-dawn raid (directed against two rival gangs engaged in drugs and firearms sales), police enter the home of Muhammad Khattak, one of the men photographed with Ford outside the suspected crackhouse, and remove a laptop and cellphones. The Toronto Star reports that sources have told them surveillance by police detectives has found information about the cellphone video. Monir Kassim, who also appeared in the photograph, is arrested too. Police also arrest Mohamed Siad, who had originally shown the Ford video to the two Toronto Star reporters. At a press conference about the raids, Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair refused to link the investigation and raids to Ford.
- CTV News reported that the Toronto Police was investigating the existence of the alleged video prior to the first published reports. According to CTV, persons under investigation discussed the video and the events of the video in wiretap-recorded conversations done in the course of the investigation. Ford was asked by reporters if he’s worried that the alleged video is now part of evidence that will come out in court: "I can’t comment on something that I’ve never seen or doesn’t exist, I don’t know how many more times I’ve got to say this. I’ve answered so many questions, I don’t know if you guys can’t get it through your thick skulls. Seriously?"
- June 14 Hacker collective Anonymous announced via Twitter that it believes a copy of the alleged video exists in Alberta. The Toronto Star identifies the third man with Ford in the picture taken outside the Etobicoke bungalow as Monir Kassim. Kassim was arrested in the June 13 raids for "trafficking in weapons and drugs (cocaine and marijuana) for the benefit of a criminal organization," and other charges. A letter from Ford is presented by the defence in the sentencing of Sandro Lisi after Lisi's conviction for threatening to kill a woman.
- June 17 Gawker announces that it is looking for charities to give the "Crackstarter" funds to. It asks "Canadians of Canada" to suggest charities for the $184,689.81 it has collected.
- June 26 Christopher Fickel, a special assistant in Ford's office, resigns.Ontario Attorney GeneralJohn Gerretsen declines to name what laws are preventing Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair from indicating if Ford is or is not under investigation, when questioned by the press. The National Post identifies "Slurpy," the man who was asked to appear in a fake crack video as Rob Ford. They report that he does not look like Ford and that he said he rejected appearing in the bogus video.
- June 27 Nisar Hashimi pleads guilty to a manslaughter charge in the death of Anthony Smith and aggravated assault in the shooting of Mohammad Khattak, the other man in the photo with Ford. Hashimi's plea avoids a trial.
- July 2 The CBC, The Globe and Mail,Toronto Sun and other news organizations request a Toronto court to unseal police search warrants in the raids on the gangs. According to the news organizations' lawyer, the documents should be public knowledge unless there is a good reason to withhold them. The action is to determine if Rob Ford is somehow connected to the criminal organizations. The Crown asks for a six-month delay in releasing the warrants.
- The Toronto Star separately filed a request to see the information on a search warrant for the Windsor Road house and the apartment in the Dixon Road complex where the alleged video was allegedly stored. The court ruled that documents relating to the search warrants will stay sealed until August 27. At that time, lawyers for the media companies will be allowed to review the documents except for sections that the Crown will keep secret. The documents will become public on September 12 after arguments over the secret sections.
- July 9 Muhammad Khattak is released on bail. He was charged in the Project Traveller raids for allegedly dealing drugs and had been held without bail. The reasons for releasing Khattak are protected under a publication ban, but his lawyer stated that Khattak is only 19, does not have a criminal record and has strict stay-at-home conditions. His case, on charges his lawyer characterized as "minor," could take up to 18 months to come to trial.
- July 18 Gawker announces that it will divide the money it raised to buy the Ford video evenly between four charities: the Somali Canadian Association of Etobicoke, the South Riverdale Community Health Centre, Unison Health and Community Services and the Ontario Regional Addictions Partnership Committee. The gross amount raised was $201,199, which netted $184,782.61 after fees paid to Indiegogo and PayPal.

I have made mistakes, and all I can do right now is apologize for the mistakes." Ford also publicly asks Police Chief Blair to release the video to the public. "I believe that this video — I want the police chief, Bill Blair, to release this video, for every single person in the city to see," Referring to the content of the video, Ford responded "When the video is released, I am going to explain to the best of my mind what is in that video or videos".

I’m the first one to enjoy a few cocktails. Some of the parties I’ve had, you know, I shouldn’t have went to the Danforth, you know, inebriated. I shouldn’t have had a pretty, I would say, a wild St. Patrick’s Day party in my office. I shouldn’t have done that. That’s the past. The past is the past."

Probably in one of my drunken stupors, probably approximately about a year ago". Responding to why the admission took so long, Ford says "I wasn’t lying. You didn’t ask the correct questions". At the end of the day, Ford held a scheduled announcement, reiterating an apology to the City of Toronto. He said "I kept this from my family, especially my brother Doug, my staff, my council colleagues because I was embarrassed and ashamed." and added "To the residents of Toronto, I know I have let you down and I can't do anything else but apologize and apologize and I'm so sorry. I know I have to regain your trust and your confidence." He concluded the announcement by stating he will stay in office and will run for re-election.

Ford states that he was "extremely inebriated" in the video: "All I can say is again I’ve made mistakes. It’s extremely embarrassing. The whole world’s going to see it. You know what?

I hope none of you have ever or will ever be in that state."

- Council asks Ford to take a leave of absence
- At a Toronto City Council meeting, Ford admits to having purchased illegal drugs within the past two years. Thirty of the 44 Councillors entered a petition to Council asking Ford to step down. An anti-Ford rally is organized outside City Hall during the meeting. The Council was considering Ford's behaviour and voted 37-5 for Ford to take a leave of absence. Council also voted for Ford to apologize for misleading council; co-operate with the Police; apologize for letter of reference for Lisi and communicate with Council instead of the media. Ford states that "he is not a rat" but pushes for mandatory drug testing for all Councillors by December 1, paid for by himself. Chair Frances Nunziata ruled Ford's motion out of order.

The new content was based on interviews with Ford staffers, who detailed drunk driving, sexual harassment, staffers buying liquor for the Mayor, the Mayor taking Oxycontin and the Mayor consorting with prostitutes.

The remaining 24% agree with Ford staying on as mayor.
- November 14
- Ford threatens legal action against his former staffers and a waiter at the restaurant of the 2012 St. Patrick's Day night party, calling their allegations "outright lies, not true." Ford also specifically denied the allegations of sex and a comment about oral sex made to a staff member, and that a woman who attended the St. Patrick's Day night party was a prostitute. "It hurts my wife when they call a friend of mine a prostitute. Alana is not a prostitute. She's a friend. And it makes me sick how people are saying this."
