TORONTO - Doug Ford says he is shocked by a lawsuit from his late brother Rob Ford's widow that was filed just days before the Ontario election.

The Progressive Conservative leader denies the allegations from Renata Ford that he mishandled his brother's estate and destroyed the value of the family business.

Doug Ford says he'll let voters decide what the motive behind the suit is, and says that his sister-in-law's lawyers had told him to "pay up" or they would go public with the allegations.

Ford declined to answer questions about releasing the financial statements for the family label business to counter the lawsuit's claims.

Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath says the allegations about Ford's handling of Deco Companies raise questions about his lack of a fully costed platform.

Horwath says if the accusations are true, then voters will be concerned that Ford doesn't have a platform that outlines how he will pay for his promises.
