Rob Ford Apologizes To Toronto For Drug & Alcohol Use
Mayor Ford spent two months at Greenstone Rehab Facility in Muskoka, Canada in May 2014. He checked into Greenstone after a video surfaced on April 30 of him allegedly smoking what appeared to be crack-cocaine.
Rob held a press conference at Toronto City Hall on June 30 to apologize for his controversial behavior.
“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 at the time.
He went on to say that he is “ashamed, embarrassed, and humiliated,” and that he never meant to “embarrass the city.”
