The mayoral election in Toronto, set for this October, is not going to be your typical political campaign because that’s what happens when your incumbent is Rob Ford, according to The Boston Globe.
Ford, the city’s embattled mayor, has spent much of the last year answering allegations that he has smoked crack on multiple occasions. In April, Ford entered rehab after his lawyer said the politician acknowledged his “substance abuse problem.”
Throughout the scandal, he has not directly addressed whether those problems have affected his ability to lead, only saying that he “won’t back down from the issues” that matter to his constituents, even when critics “start throwing mud.”
