Mayor Rob Ford poses with neo-Nazi musician (who is in uniform), says he wasn’t aware of his views

The picture was uploaded to Facebook on May 6 with the caption “Me meeting with Toronto’s Mayor, Rob Ford to get an endorsement for the Latvian Homeguard — at Toronto City Hall.” Toronto Mayor Rob Ford issued a statement Thursday after a photo came to light showing the mayor at the 2012 New Year’s Levee smiling, with his arm around a neo-Nazi musician. Former Liberal spin doctor and punk rocker Warren Kinsella found the photo and posted it on his blog, saying the man Ford was with was Jon Latvis, a member of the neo-Nazi band RAHOWA (Racial Holy War). The picture was posted under a Facebook profile with Latvis’ name with the caption, “Me meeting with Toronto’s Mayor, Rob Ford to get an endorsement for the Latvian Homeguard — at Toronto City Hall.” George Christopoulos, Ford’s press secretary, says the mayor met up to 750 people during the New Year’s Levee, some of whom posed for photographs and in no way endorsed anything. “At no time was the Mayor aware of allegations that this individual had made racist, hateful or otherwise offensive comments, nor were any such comments made during his meeting with the Mayor. Mayor Ford is a strong supporter of Toronto’s Jewish community and strongly deplores anti-Semitism in any form,” he said in a statement.
