by the truth. You owe Chief Blair and Mayor Ford an apology and you need to resign. So much for the impartial cbc. Ever more reasons to sell the cbc. TORONTO - Toronto police chief Bill Blair's account that Mayor Rob Ford didn't verbally abuse 911 dispatchers during a series of emergency calls made in October is "accurate," the provincial police commissioner says. In a statement released Friday afternoon, Commissioner Chris Lewis says he listened to Toronto Police Service recordings of the emergency calls, and Blair's "statement (he) made in a public release on October 28... is an accurate interpretation of the content of the tapes." Lewis' statement comes less than a month after CBC ombudsman Kirk LaPointe said he couldn't accept Blair's account of what is on those 911 recordings because Blair's objectivity was compromised because of Ford's role in setting the city's police budget.
