Lawyer for Toronto mayor says he's in talks with police to view crack video

The lawyer for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he's in talks with the police for Ford to view the video that appears to show the mayor smoking crack.

Dennis Morris declined further comment Thursday because he "didn't want to jeopardize anything." Police also are seeking to question the mayor of Canada's largest city.

Ford acknowledged Tuesday for the first time that he smoked crack "probably a year ago" when he was in a "drunken stupor. Police obtained the video last week in the course of a drug investigation into Ford's friend and occasional driver, Alexander Lisi.

Morris previously said Ford would be willing to go view the tape but would not answer questions. Ford hasn't been charged.

A police spokesman declined to comment.
