The crack house where Toronto mayor Rob Ford was allegedly smoking crack cocaine was identified by members of the Canadian press and investigated by local authorities.
Ford has been coming under increasing pressure to resign but the controversial mayor has continued to proclaim his innocence. He has yet to comment on the infamous house located at 15 Windsor Road in North Etobicoke.
Local police had previously labeled the house a "known crack house" and the surrounding area is notorious for narcotic activity, according to the Epoch Times.
The embattled mayor continues to deny allegations and refused to comment on the Windsor Road home identified as the location of the video recording in which Ford appears to be smoking crack.
"I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine," Ford said during a previous news conference at city hall.
"Anyways, like I said this morning, these allegations are ridiculous, it's another story with respect to the Toronto Star going after me," Ford said. "And that's all I've got to say for now."
City Councilman Adam Vaughan said this is not the first distraction for the mayor.
"He's a bad mayor because he makes bad decisions … he doesn't have a coherent set of policies," Vaughan, told CBC.
Another city councilman said that the mayor should address this immediately to prevent further distractions at City Hall. He referred to the allegations as "obviously shocking and kind of salacious stuff."
"There have been so many distractions, and it kind of seems to be ongoing," city councilman Josh Colle told Metro Morning during an interview. "You're kind of almost nervous to turn on your radio or TV to see what the next news story's going to be. It's not healthy for the city, that's for sure."
