The restaurateur family caught in the middle of a divisive election
issue says they are being exploited for political gain and have
initiated legal action against frontrunner Rob Ford.
Ford is scheduled to be served with a notice of libel on Thursday, the Star
has learned. Foulidis has demanded the Etobicoke councillor apologize
and admit that his allegations are not based on any evidence. Should he
refuse, Tuggs will sue for financial damages.
“Everything Ford has said about us is lies. He will say anything to
get elected. And in an attempt to become mayor he has publicly accused
my family of corruption — and he professes to stand for the small
businessman,” Foulidis said.
