Sobriety coach Bob Marier.

On the December 14 episode of Daily VICE, we ran a clip of our new documentary that gives an unprecedented look into the life of Rob Ford's former sobriety coach Bob Marier (which you can watch here). Our episode of Daily VICE included a clip wherein Mr. Marier made a particular allegation about Rob Ford's alleged drinking habits.

Since running that clip on Daily VICE, Mr. Marier is no longer able to verify his claim, and the Ford family disputed his comments. We have removed the episode as a result. And, given that we are unable to independently verify his allegation, we also removed that clip from the final edit of the documentary.
