Toronto Mayor Rob Ford To Seek Help for Substance Abuse (yeah, you think?)

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will take a leave of absence to seek help for substance abuse, his lawyer said Wednesday.

Dennis Morris said he spoke to Ford earlier Wednesday and said Ford has accepted that he has a problem.

“He acknowledges he has a substance abuse problem and he wants to do something about it,” Morris told The Associated Press.

The announcement comes as The Globe and Mail newspaper reported Wednesday that it had viewed a NEW VIDEO of Ford smoking what has been described as crack cocaine by a self-professed drug dealer.

The video was secretly filmed in Ford’s sister’s basement early Saturday morning, the newspaper reported.

Ford, who launched his campaign for re-election earlier this year, acknowledged last year after months of denials that he smoked crack in a “drunken stupor” after police said they obtained a video that appears to show him smoking crack. The video has never been released to the public.

Toronto mayor Rob Ford admits having smoked cocaine, CBS reports on Tuesday.

According to the Associated Press, Ford admitted to using crack “probably a year ago” during a “DRUNKEN STUPOR.” He made the revelations to reporters at City Hall.

“I answered your question,” Ford added, according to The Globe and Mail.

“You ask the question properly, I’ll answer it. Yes, I’ve made mistakes. All I can do now is apologize and move on.”



‘Move on. Nothing to see here. Move on.”

A monkey wearing a shearling coat and diapers was found wandering around an Ikea parking lot in Toronto, reported the CBC.

The monkey’s owner, who was shopping at the home and furniture store, put the monkey in a crate inside her car, but it managed to escape. “It’s a smart monkey,” Toronto Police Sgt. Ed Dzingala told the CBC.

The woman who believes she was the first to spot the animal told the CBC, “It was the weirdest thing. I thought I was going insane.”

 “It seemed like it was screaming around for someone [it] knew. It was sad,” she said.

An absolutely terrific blog!



The Great Toronto Fire of 1904 destroyed a large section of downtown Toronto, but the city was quickly rebuilt. The fire had cost more than $10 million in damage, led to more stringent fire safety laws, and the expansion of the city’s fire department.
