Rob Ford's Vulgar Statements About Karen Stintz Caught On Tape (TRANSCRIPT)

FULL TEXT: The Rob Ford Audio Tape

Rob Ford says he is taking a leave of absence from his re-election campaign after an audio recording of the mayor making offensive statements about Toronto city councillor Karen Stintz emerged. Shortly after, The Globe and Mail revealed its reporters had seen a video of Rob Ford apparently using drugs, recorded last weekend.

Below is a transcript of Rob Ford and others after they were heard on an audio recording that was obtained by the Toronto Sun:

(This transcript contains offensive language)

Ford: "... the fucking flag up, ahead of our Canadian flag. I said no that's bullshit, that's bullshit! Then they said they went to Queen's Park, they said no way. Tim Hudak comes out and says yeah, I agree with all the gays should have the, I said that's it. I lost my Conservative value.."

Man's voice: "You went to Queen’s Park with it. You’re the mayor; you actually went to Queens Park with him."

Ford: "No, they went, the gay organization went to Queen's Park ... so again, at Queen's Park, you have to have every member to vote for it."

Man's voice: "I thought you were the one ..."

Ford: "No no no. And Tim says, you know what, that's right, I think it's, right there ..."

(inaudible chatter)

Ford: "He lost my vote, I don't know what the fuck ... I can't vote Liberal, because I don't like what (Kathleen) Wynne's doing. Not because she's gay or not, I just don't like the corruption. NDP I'm just not left wing. I just can't... I am like Tim Hudak but I can't, I won't put a sign up on my lawn, I won't put in any money. I might have to vote Green, I don't know what the fuck I'm going to vote right now, I'm going to vote something."

Man's voice: "See, that's incredible."

Ford: "But I'm absolutely going to vote, I'm probably going to vote Green because the Green guy didn't say a fucking word."

Man's voice: "But you're a business guy, you have a business ... how could you vote anything else than PC?"

Ford: "No, no ..."

Another person chimes in, "(Inaudible)"

Ford: "It's okay, I don't mind. Listen, I don't mind, I'm kidding, as long as they vote, I would rather them vote against me than not vote at all."

Another person: "I'd rather that nobody speak about politics ..."

Ford: "I'd rather lose to Olivia Chow than lose to anyone man, cause you know what (talking over each other) fucked so bad, they're going to say ... no I'm not coming back, once I'm gone I'm gone. I'm gone to California."

Another: "You know what you're like..."

Another: "How about Karen Stintz?"

Ford: "I'd like to fucking jam her, but she don't want..."


(woman's voice, inaudible)

Ford: "I'm so sorry."

(woman's voice, inaudible)

Ford: "I forgot there was a woman in the house."


Ford: "(inaudible) says you're carrying a piece, here's your envelope. There's no envelope, there's no secret service, I am who I am, I don't, there's no secret service, I am, I'm who ..."

Another: "It's your birthday."

Another: "It's not even six o'clock, are we talking about your ..."

Ford: "You know what Nick ... you just say secret service, I'd say, I'm not! He says oh, I see the stage ... I'm not a normal mayor! I admit, you know what bro, I am not the normal mayor. I am not the normal mayor."

Another: "How do you fuck your wife?"

(woman's voice exclaims, inaudible words)

Ford: "I'd fuck her like I'm fucking ..."

(woman's voice again, inaudible words)

Another: "Would you go that far?"

Ford: "I won't go that far... That's when we start talking my language."

(People talking over each other)

Woman: "I don't like where this is heading."

Ford: "We're talking politics."

Another: "When was the last time you smoked a joint?"

Ford: "It doesn't matter ..."


Ford: "I, I, I, these guys want me fucking covered in ... I said nobody's going to cover me, I've got everything under control."

Woman: "Rob?"

Ford: "I'm good. Is that your wife?"

(inaudible chatter)

Ford: "Get a shot right now or I'll fucking break her..."

Another: "... is not here! Braden, do me a favour..."

Another: "It's not a competition."

Woman: "Stop."

Ford: "I don't mind talking politics, but I don't mind you guys..."


Ford: "Fuck bro, I pound this every day..."

Another: "It's nine o'clock at night, it's nine o'clock at night."

Another: "I tell you about my job, it will last for fucking two hours."

Ford: "Oh good, oh good."

Another: "Two hours?"


Ford: "You won't get a shot in two seconds or I'll knock your fucking teeth out."

Another: "You know what? Robbie..."

Ford: "Let me get a, no, no no no no, I want that fucking dago back there, sorry."

Woman: "Everyone is allowed their downtime."


Ford: "That's what I'm saying"

Another: "What do you want?"

Ford: "I want, give him two shots ... because those two dagos are drinking together ..."

(people talking over one another)

Another; "No work."

Woman: "I'm asking a question ..."

Another: "I want to ask some questions too."

Woman: "I'm asking a question ..."

Ford: "Politics, I'm fucking sick of politics dude, look at my record, I'm going to win! We're going to win!"

Woman: "Rob!"

Ford: "You've got two choices, you've got Olivia Chow, it's a fucking safe vote, it's a safe vote! If you vote for Tory, you're voting for Chow!"

Another: "You're splitting the vote."
