Mayor Ford to get payout in failed libel suit

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is getting a payout.

The mayor and former council candidate Bruce Baker are set to receive over $135,000 in court costs from last year’s failed Boardwalk Pub libel case.

In 2010, the owner of the Boardwalk Pub in the Beach sued after Ford alleged a sole source deal with the city was “corrupt,” while Baker called for a police probe into the deal.

The case was dismissed last year, but an appeal is pending.
