The brother of Toronto’s embattled mayor says he agrees Rob Ford should take some time off.
Doug Ford told CHML affiliate AM640 that his brother could just take a week or two off and lose about 50 pounds and then he’d be good as new.
His comments come the day after a video emerged showing Toronto’s mayor in the middle of a profanity-laced rant.
A growing number of Toronto city councillors have been calling for the mayor to take a break and deal with his personal issues after the mayor admitted to smoking crack while in a “drunken stupor.”
Ford admitted earlier this week that he’d smoked crack cocaine and on Thursday he apologized again after a profanity-laced video emerged of him threatening to kill someone.
Chief Bill Blair has said police recovered two videos of the mayor, including one with images that corresponded with those that media outlets reported appear to show Ford smoking crack cocaine.
Next week, an Ontario judge is expected to decide whether remaining portions of a document that revealed Ford’s ties and covert meetings with an alleged drug dealer can be released.
