Toronto - A volunteer for Toronto mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi's campaign alleges that mayoral opponent George Smitherman swore at her when she attempted to hand him debate material. Smitherman claims she, instead, attacked him.
Prior to Thursday night’s debate at the University of Toronto’s Hart House near Queen’s Park, a campaign volunteer for mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi accused George Smitherman of swearing at her when she attempted to hand him debate material, according to CP24.
Smitherman allegedly told the young 24-year-old female volunteer to “f*** off.” However, Smitherman did say he let her “have it” but accused the volunteer of “attacking” him instead.

In an interview with 680 News, Rossi defended his volunteer by saying that she is “very gentle” and a “kind soul” who has been working “diligently” for his campaign. He also demanded an apology from Smitherman:
“I can't imagine anyone interpreting anything she did as an attack - certainly not someone who would outweigh her and be ignorantly bigger than her as Mr. Smitherman would be."
According to a new poll, Rossi has gained some support in the polls. Rossi is standing at third and is only 7 points behind Smitherman.
