Surprise!!!!

Drug Fraud strikes again.


Rob Ford’s widow sues Doug Ford, alleging he has deprived her and her children of millions

The widow and children of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford are suing his brother Doug Ford, alleging he has deprived them of millions of dollars, including shares in the family business and a life insurance policy left behind to support his family.

In a $16.5-million lawsuit filed Friday in Superior Court, Renata Ford also alleges that former brother-in-law Doug Ford is a “negligent” business manager whose decisions have led to a steady decrease in the value of the Ford company, Deco Labels. Despite setting his sights on a political career, Doug has continued to receive “extravagant compensation,” even though Deco is losing money, Renata claims in her court filings.

Doug Ford has “knowingly and deliberately put (Renata and her two children) in a highly stressful and unfair financial position during their period of grief after Rob Ford’s death, and continued to do so for more than two years after Rob Ford’s death,” the statement of claim alleges.

The lawsuit was filed by lawyers from Aird & Berlis LLP in Superior Court against Doug, his brother Randy (who is a top executive at Deco), and the Deco company itself. The allegations have not been proven in court.

After the Star sent a list of questions to Doug Ford, a spokesperson responded with two statements, one from Doug and one from Diane Ford, his mother.

“These claims relating to Deco are completely false and we will strongly refute them in court,” said Doug Ford’s statement.

“I have also stood by my brother and his family through so many of their challenging times, and will always be there for (Rob and Renata’s children). Renata’s lawyers have been clear to us throughout this campaign, that either we hand over money, or they would go public with these false claims, and that is exactly what they have done, with three days to go until the election.”

Diane Ford sent the following statement through Doug’s spokesperson.

“It is heartbreaking that Renata has chosen to bring forward these false and baseless allegations against our family, right in the middle of the provincial election campaign. As a family, our one goal is to ensure Rob’s children are cared for and their financial futures are secure. Renata has serious struggles with addiction, and our hope is that she will accept help for the sake of herself and my grandchildren,” Diane said in her statement.

Randy Ford did not respond to a request for comment.

Rob Ford was mayor of Toronto from 2010-2014. He died of cancer March 22, 2016. Although highly popular with segments of the Toronto electorate, Ford was also wracked by substance abuse issues and was once videotaped smoking crack cocaine with people involved in the gun and drug trades.

Through it all, his wife, Renata, stood by his side. They have two children, a boy and a girl.

The lawsuit details numerous allegations against both Doug and Randy, who are the trustees for their late brother’s estate. Doug and Randy are also trustees of the estate of the late Doug Sr., father of Rob, Doug, Randy and Kathy. Kathy is not mentioned in the lawsuit.

The Conservatives had a couple of really top notch leadership candidates and instead they chose this bluff, loudmouth, criminal buffoon. What the hell are those people thinking?

They are all sure that Doug McMethhead can deliver the 905.

And he probably can.

The Center of the Universe (Toronto) is all about the Center of the Universe.

They were never more happy than when their crackhead mayor was putting Toronto on all the networks every night.

Ford just admitted he committed what was stated in the allegations.









(You see, that's actually something fake. Simply reporting on allegations is not.)

She is suing his other brother and the company too. It looks like she is being opportunistic in her timing. I think she was hoping for a quick payout to shut her up. It remains to be seen if these hold up in court.

Wow, what timing on these accusations. Man, isn't it amazingly coincidental that the moment it looks like a Conservative is going to win or they have a potentially strong candidate, unproven allegations against them suddenly come up.
Anybody heard any further word on the allegations against Brown? No? Gosh, what a surprise, eh? I guess they served their purpose.

Lets say just a whole range of skulduggery, including a bunch of false pretenses and submitting bogus expenses to provide a little extra pocket money. As far as Doug Ford goes, would a sane person vote for a candidate to be Premier, with allegations of dope peddling being part of his past? (I know innocent until proved guilty, but does that standard have to apply to elections?) It didn't for the alleged pervert in Alabama.

So the mere accusation, by a woman who apparently has addiction problems, is proof of guilt?
I bet you're the kind who is more than willing to brush off the tens of billions of taxpayer dollars Kathleen Wynne stole to help her re-election hopes. I bet you're also the kind who brushes off her own auditor general claiming she's cooking the books.

No, I worked with (for, actually) a woman who went to school with Doug Ford. She is a serious, Conservative type and by no means a gossip. She said that he was THE big dope dealer in her high school. Coincidentally, my next door neighbor has had a similar encounter with Doug specifically (and the rest of the Ford mafia) while in high school in Etobicoke. You want drugs? DRIVE over to the Ford house!

Do I want this asshole as the head of our Provincial government?

Not on your life, boy.

The Fords are an old fashioned Irish-Canadian crime family like the Black Donelleys
