Canadian clinic confirms Toronto mayor's in rehab

TORONTO (AP) - A rehab facility in a small Ontario town has confirmed that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is undergoing treatment at its clinic.

GreenStone Clinic Muskoka in Bala, Ontario, released a statement Friday saying that Ford is at its facility. The clinic says it released this information with the embattled mayor's consent.

Ford announced late last month that he was seeking treatment for an alcohol problem after a new video surfaced that appeared to show the mayor smoking a crack pipe - nearly a year after reports of an initial video that appeared show him smoking the drug.

Ford's erratic behavior - including another video in which he threatened to "murder" - led Toronto's city council to strip him of most of his powers. For says he's running for re-election in October.

He should move to the states and run for Senate or the House of Rep. Couldn't be any worse than what we have.

It is mind boggling to think this man could be elected or re-elected to any position other than village buffoon.

This guy looks like he's on the verge of a heart attack. I hope this rehab visit is part of a wake up call.

I think he is way past dodging a heart attack or stroke, the question is when.

He's got a addictive personality, he's out of control, hoping his rehab works out for him!

he think he is a god and gods gift to women for some unknown reason. The guy is a dirtbag of the higest caliber. Matter of fact it would be nice if one of your nuttier Americans would use their gun on him. We have gun control up here.

If he gets into recovery somehow in a program like AA, he will have a heck of a story to tell. How did this guy ever get elected; oh yeah, Toronto...............

He does not need treatment, he just needs to go away.

I know it is a lot easier to be rude and judgmental regarding what this man has done however, let he or she who is without sin cast the first stone, EVERYONE has or had there own demons at one time or another EVERYONE be it Drugs, Alcohol, depression, divorce or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Why not wish him luck and the strength to overcome his problems, Be human! Good luck Rob you can do it!
