Judge warns against irrelevant evidence
Taking the stand to defend himself against allegations he willfully violated the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act, Ford said his decision to speak on the matter did not meet his "definition" of a conflict of interest nor did it raise the ire of city staff.
Ruby, however, said the city's handbook explicitly states that conflict of interest laws apply to all matters before council.
The account, Ruby said, had in the past posted photos showing Ford handing over novelty sized checks to high school football programs bearing the signature of Mayor Rob Ford, but Justice Charles said that detail had nothing to do with fundraising and warned Ruby to stick only to questions concerning the city's integrity commissioner. with the mayor leaving the courtroom without speaking to reporters.
In his opening statement earlier Wednesday morning Ruby said it would be up to Hackland to decide whether Ford was in a conflict of interest and if so whether he is genuine in his belief that he's done nothing wrong.
Addressing the courtroom Ford's lawyer Alan Lenczner said the mayor did not violate the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act because the act does not apply to discussions surrounding integrity commissioner rulings.
The penalty would have forced Ford to repay $3,150 in donations he collected for the Rob Ford Football Foundation using councillor letterhead, but council, Ford included, voted to drop it during a February council meeting.
Pressed by Ruby for an admission of guilt Ford refused to budge, saying he would only regret his actions if found guilty.
At one point during Wednesday's testimony Ford was asked about his official Twitter account, which he said was run by a member of his staff.
Though most of Ruby's questioning focused around Ford's prior knowledge of conflict of interest laws, the Rob Ford Football Foundation itself was also discussed at length with Ruby suggesting that Ford exaggerated the amount of money the foundation had raised on his mayoral campaign website.

If Hackland finds Ford willingly violated the conflict of interest act he would have no choice but to remove him from office.
Ford denied that allegation, saying he was including personal donations he himself had made towards establishing a football program at Don Bosco Catholic Nike Air Presto Triple White Release Date

Ford concludes testimony in conflict
During that same interview, Ford also spoke at length about the good work his foundation has done, but on Wednesday Ruby questioned the relevance of that work.
Mayor Rob Ford stepped down from the stand Wednesday afternoon after spending most of the day defending himself against accusations he acted in conflict of interest during a meeting at city hall earlier this year.
"For 12 years I've believed if it benefits the city and a councillor it is a conflict," Ford said in his defence. "This had nothing to do with the city."
Lenczner added that the integrity commissioner had no right to fine Ford in the first place, since city regulations only allow the formal reprimand of councillors and or suspension of their pay.
"If the City clerk advises me there's a conflict or a possible conflict I will declare it. Most councillors do," he said. "Legal staff and clerks were present at this vote. Nobody came forward to say I had a conflict."
Ford concluded his testimony telling a packed courtroom that he was not aware of any conflict when he voted in favour of scrapping a penalty levied against him by the city's integrity commissioner.

"The conflict of interest act does not apply in this matter," Lenczner said. "It counts when someone brings a motion forward for city business; this case is a personal claw back of Nike Presto Racer Blue
"Mayor Ford wants this to be about kids and donations to his football teams," he said. "That is not what this hearing is about."
"He (Ford) believes if the city has no financial interest councillors can vote however they please," he said."

He noted that other literature, which didn't include those personal donations, suggests the foundation has raised about $37,000.
In the past Ford has called the case against him "all politics," telling CP24 during an interview last week that he "truly believes" he has done nothing wrong.
Upon cross examination by Clayton Ruby, who represents plaintiff and concerned Torontonian Paul Magder, Ford said he believes conflict of interest laws would only have applied if both he and the city were in a position to benefit financially.
