Second man charged with threatening Ford

T.O. mayor shrugs off death threats

Toronto police have arrested a second man accused of threatening to kill Mayor Rob Ford, according to the CBC. Robert Dunlop was picked up at the end of July and charged with uttering death threats. Another man, Anthony Vela, was arrested and charged with the same crime on July 14. The mayor’s staff say the alleged threats won’t change the way he does his job. “The mayor continues to go to public events. He was at the Taste of the Danforth [festival] last weekend. He is at football games. He still continues to return phone calls and regularly makes constituency meetings a priority,” his press secretary Adrienne Batra said.
