Mayor Rob Ford is denying allegations that he gave the finger to a mother who told him to stop talking on his cellphone while driving. (An act which is illegal in Ontario and he should be arrested for it to set an example.)
“There has been a story published that while I was on the phone I made a rude gesture to a fellow driver. This is not accurate and it’s unfortunate this misunderstanding occurred,” Rob Ford says on his Facebook page. He doesn't deny driving while talking on his cellphone and he doesn't deny giving the finger... so apparently the finger was meant for someone else???
Ford’s press secretary, Adrienne Batra, says that the mayor admits to talking on his cellphone while driving, but did not give the other driver the finger.
When asked by a reporter “what happened with flipping the bird” Ford laughed and then refused to comment further.
Ottilie Mason, the woman who was given the finger, was unimpressed with Rob Ford's Facebook retort. “That doesn’t make any sense at all,” she says. “I misunderstand that I gave her the finger? It’s a very political, non-committal response.”
Mason says that, to be perfectly accurate, he hung up the phone, then gave her the finger.
It was apparently pretty obvious he was giving her the finger. Nothing to be misunderstood at all.
Mason, her 6-year-old daughter and her daughter’s babysitter were idling next to Ford at the intersection at Dundas and Spadina when she spotted the mayor talking on his cellphone behind the wheel.
She and her daughter gave him a thumbs-down, and she rolled down her window and told him to stop talking on the phone.
He responded by getting off the phone and then looking straight at her while giving her the finger.
According to Toronto Police Traffic Services they are unsure if police would pursue charges on the issue of driving while using a cellphone, but confirmed that Mark Pugash, director of corporate communications for the police, has been in contact with the mayor’s office about the incident.
And we all know Rob Ford is a liar and a drug addict, so him lying to the police is nothing new.
