Edited transcript of an audio tape that, according to the Toronto Sun, is a recording of Rob Ford at an Etobicoke bar on Monday evening.

Rob Ford: Put this f—–g flag up…. Tim Hudak goes ‘yeah I agree with all the gays..’

Unidentified voice: You’re the mayor. You went to Queen’s Park with em.

Ford: No the gay organization went to Queen’s Park with it. And there’s a standstill. At Queen’s Park you have to have every member to vote for you.

Ford: No, no, no, and Tim says you know what? That’s right. I think it’s kind of right there.


Ford: Well I don’t know what the f—. I can’t vote Liberal cause I don’t like what [Kathleen] Wynne’s doing. Not because she’s gay, I just don’t like (the propostion?)


Ford: And NDP, I’m just not left wing. I am like Tim Hudak. But I won’t put his sign up on my lawn and I won’t give him any money. I might have to vote Green. I don’t know what the f— I’m going to vote.

Malevoice: Vote Green?

Rob Ford: (angry mumbling) I am absolutely going to vote. I’m probably going to vote Green cause the Green guy didn’t say a f—–g word.

Male voice: You’re a business guy. How could you vote anything but PC?

Ford: No, no I don’t mind these guys. I’d rather them vote against me than not vote at all. I’d rather lose to Olivia Chow than lose to anyone.

Male voice: How about Karen Stintz?

Ford: I’d like to f—–g jam her but she don’t want it.

(Much laughter. Mumbling)

Ford: I can’t talk like this. I’m so sorry. I forgot there was a woman in the house.


Ford: [Something about CSIS] There’s no envelope there’s no secret service.

(more mumbling)

Ford: There’s no secret service!

Ford: I admit, I am not the normal mayor. I’m not the normal mayor.

Male voice: How do you f— your wife?

Ford: I’d f— your wife. I’d f— your wife. I won’t go that far.

Female voice: Oh Nick stop

Ford: Now you’re talking my language.

Female voice: I don’t like where this conversation is going.

Female voice: When was the last time you smoked a joint?

Ford: It doesn’t matter. These guys want me f—–g covered in… But nobody is going to cover me, I’ve got everything under control.

Female voice: Rob!

Ford: Is that your wife?

Male voice: Yeah

Female voice: Rob!

Ford: Get her a shot right now or I’ll f—–g break her little neck.

Female voice: Stop.

Rob: I don’t mind talking politics… I f—–g pound this every day.

Male voice: It’s nine o’clock at night.

Ford: Something over there…. Sorry that was f—–g racist, sorry.

Ford: If you don’t get a shot in two seconds I’ll knock your f—–g teeth out.


Female voice: Everyone is allowed their down time.

Ford: That’s what I’m saying… It’s after nine. I want to give him two shots cause those two dagos are drinking together.

Male voice: Did you just call me a dago, really?

Ford: I’m f—–g sick of politics dude. Look at my record… I’m gonna win.

Female voice: Rob!

Ford: You have two choices. You have Olivia Chow…. And you vote for Tory, you vote for Chow.

Male voice: You’re splitting the vote!
