One day after calling a demand for details on his brothers rehab “disgusting,” Councillor Doug Ford says he will release information that will “put an end to all speculation” about the mayor’s treatment for alcohol addiction.
Yesterday, City Council voted unanimously to excuse Rob Ford’s absence from council meetings. Regulations say a member of council can be removed from office for missing more than three council sessions.
But some councillors said they want proof that Ford is actually in rehab. Joe Mihevc and Shelley Carroll say that Ford’s history of lying about his condition requires proof.
Doug Ford initially called that demand “disgusting,” because it would expose other patients to media scrutiny. But, this morning, Ford told the Toronto Sun’s Joe Warmington that he will reveal details today.
The Sun also obtained another video of the mayor drunk in a bar. In it, he swears and mumbles about a “divorce” and being “in the doghouse.” Warmington says the video was taken recently during the same weekend a new video surfaced that allegedly shows the mayor smoking crack cocaine in his sister’s basement.
