article imageToronto Mayor Rob Ford returning to work from rehab on Monday

By Marcus Hondro     Jun 29, 2014 in Politics
After two months in a rehab facility to deal with substance abuse issues, Mayor Rob Ford is returning to Toronto city hall on Monday morning. He told city clerk Ulli S. Watkis over a week ago, via a letter, about the date of his intended return.
Ford is at the GreeneStone rehab facility in Bala, Ont., where he's been since early May, getting help after a year of intense scandal that included crack cocaine smoking, drunken escapades and unusual, sometimes crude, press conferences. Before going into treatment, another drug video featuring Mayor Ford surfaced, along with another audio tape of the mayor drunk in public.
Despite all the embarrassment and bad press he's garnered, Ford is running for reelection and the campaign was underway before he entered GreeneStone. The election is not until October 27, however. At a campaign rally last week, chief rival Olivia Chow took a shot at Ford. “I was in China and they knew about (Ford),” she said. “They know a lot about two Canadians: Justin Bieber and Rob Ford.”
Since going into rehab, the world has heard virtually nothing from the mayor and it's unknown how successful his time there has been.
