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

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.
