Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to Return to Work on June 30, CBC Reports

June 17 (Bloomberg) -- Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will return to work by the end of the month, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

Ford, who took a leave of absence almost two months ago to seek help for substance abuse, will return on June 30, CBC reported, citing a letter by Ford to Toronto’s city clerk.

The mayor of Canada’s most populous city said on April 30 that he’d take a leave from his duties and his re-election campaign to seek help following reports of a new video that allegedly showed him smoking crack cocaine again.

The mayor, 45, admitted smoking crack cocaine last year, probably in a “drunken stupor,” his antics becoming fodder for late-night U.S. comedy shows.

Dan Jacobs, a spokesman for Rob Ford, referred a request for comment to the office of deputy mayor Norm Kelly. Isaac Ransom, a spokesman for Norm Kelly, didn’t immediately return a phone message.
