New video of Toronto mayor reported

TORONTO — The Globe and Mail newspaper is reporting that it has viewed a second video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking what appears to be crack cocaine in his sister’s basement.

The national newspaper reported Wednesday night that two of its reporters saw a video from a self-professed drug dealer showing Ford taking a drag from a pipe early Saturday morning.


It reports the video is part ‘‘of a package of three videos the dealer said was surreptitiously filmed about 1:15 a.m., and which he says he is now selling for ‘‘at least six figures.’’

The report comes as his lawyer says Ford will take a leave of absence for substance abuse. Ford is seeking reelection in the Oct. 27 vote.
