Rob Ford Returns To Toronto City Hall After Rehab To Apologize — Watch His Speech

Tue, July 1, 2014 11:15am EDT by 3 Comments

After his release from a Canadian rehab facility, Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford returned to City Hall where he apologized for his actions. Do you think he deserves another chance?

Looking apologetic, and noticeably slimmer, Toronto mayor Rob Ford took the podium at Toronto City Hall on June 30 to address his two-month stay at Greenstone Rehab Facility in Muskoka, Canada. Rob checked into Greenstone after a video surfaced on April 30 of the controversial mayor smoking what seemed to be crack-cocaine.

Rob Ford Apologizes To Toronto For Drug & Alcohol Use

In his first public appearance since rehab, Rob held a press conference at Toronto City Hall to apologize for his controversial alcohol and drug use. It seems that the troubled mayor is finally taking the right steps towards his recovery.

“I learned about things like triggers and what happens when you have uncontrollable cravings. I learned that my addiction is really a disease, a chronic medical disease that will require treatment for the rest of my life,” Rob admitted.

He went on to say that he is “ashamed, embarrassed, and humiliated.”

Rob even addressed the citizens of Toronto specifically saying he never meant to “embarrass the city.”

Aw. Hopefully he will continue to seek out treatment to avoid this craziness happening again.

Rob Ford: ‘I Am Not Asking For Forgiveness’

Rob revealed that he now knows the position he holds as mayor is “held to a higher standard” and despite his apologies, he is “not asking for forgiveness.”

He also answered the question that was on everyone’s mind — would he run for mayoral re-election on October 27?

“Over the coming months, friends, my top priority will be rebuilding trust, trust with the public and my fellow members of council,” he continued. “I want to thank the people of Toronto for their understanding and the continued support during this very, very difficult time. I look forward to serving you for many, many more years.”

Hmm. That sure is a vague answer, no?

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Rob Ford run for reelection after all of the scandal? Let us know your thoughts below!

Bob Ford did not “used to be” an addict………he IS an addict. And he will remain an addict forever and have to fight his urges to reuse for the rest of his life. He does not need a job that keeps him in the limelight and adds undo stress. The voters will look pretty stupid if he is re-elected and he immediately begins using again. Set-backs are not uncommon for addicts. What’s concerning is he showed no interest in rehab until it was time for another election.
