Statementto
Ontario
Press
Council
Ladies
and
gentlemen
of
the Ontario
Press
Council,
members
of
the
public,
and
fellowjournalists:
The
Toronto
Starispleased
to
be
given
the
opportunity
to
talk
aboutthe
front
page
story
ofFriday,
May
l7
.
The story
described
the
attempts
by
people
involvedin
thedrugtrade
to
sell
a
video
of
Toronto Mayor
Rob Ford smoking what
appears
to
be
crack
cocaine.
It
detailed
how twoToronto
Starreporters,
Kevin
Donovan
and
Robyn
Doolittle,
wereshown
this
video
by
a
drug
dealer
and
his
associate,
one
of
whom
was
involvedin making
the
video.
In
the
video,
the
mayor
washeard
to
make
disparagingcomments
about
minorities
and
homosexuals.The
May
17
story springboarded
off
ayear
long
investigation by
Star
reporters intoallegations that
Mayor
Ford
had
a substance abuse
problem
for
which
his
own staff
was
urginghim
-
unsuccessfully
-
to
seek
treatment.The
council
has
decided to
hear
a
complaintfrom
Ms
Darylle Donley.
Hereis the
complaint:
I
would
be
curious
to
know
just
how
far
a
W
or
radioreporter or
newspaperperson,has to
gobefore
they
are sanctionedand
curtailed?
The
Ford
brothers
are
being
lied
about,
innuendos and
allegations are being
made
against
them.
The
news
should
beconcrete
and
proven
truth.
Two
Somali
drugdealers?
If
these
are
tworealpeople
wouLd they
possibllt
be
capable
of
creative
videography?
Or
does
your
office believethat no
one
would
dosuch
a
thing?
It
appears
that
thedays
of
obtainingreliable
news
from
one's
daily
newspaper
is
long
gone.
I
might
as
wellpurchase
MW,
Tattler
orPeople,
or
some
similar
gossip
paper
to
obtain my
informa.tion.
I
could always
watch
TMZ, too;
yetmore
stretched
information.
I
am
curious
to know what
your
criteria
is
regarding
mistruths
and
allegationsin
the
Ontario
newspnpers.Thank
you
for
your anticipated
replry.
Darylle
Donley
