A report, written by Toronto’s Ombudsman, is expected to show that former Toronto mayor Rob Ford used city hall security officers as private bodyguards. And, at least one of them helped hide Ford’s substance abuse.  Two sources with knowledge of Fiona Crean’s probe of city security conduct, tell the Toronto Star that in one case, a security officer placed a hand over a Closed Circuit TV camera to keep it from recording Ford staggering through city hall during one of his bouts of alcohol or drug abuse.  The report will also apparently describe chaotic public scenes in which actions  or non-actions  by security officials threatened the safety of media, politicians, city staff and members of the public.   Crean’s report is to be made public tomorrow and presented to city council next week.   Creen says launched the probe after receiving multiple complaints.
