Rob Ford

Should Rob Ford release the 911 tape to the public?

After Rob Ford's statement yesterday about his controversial 911 phone call, the pressure is mounting for the mayor to release the tape to end this 'they said vs. he said' controversy. Though Ford admits to using the F word, he denies calling the operators "bitches."

The CBC stands by their story — or at least by their source, which may or may not be the same thing. As such, a number of city councillors believe Ford should release the tape and settle this business once and for all. As Adam Vaughan succinctly put it: "Either the CBC was grossly unfair to the mayor or the mayor of Toronto is not telling the truth."

So, the Friday poll makes its return. Do you think Rob Ford should release the 911 tape? Note: this is not the same as asking "would you like to hear the tape?" Let's take that as a given and focus on whether or not the mayor has to release the tape to prove he's telling the truth.
