Rob Ford returns to work after two months into rehab

In a speech at city hall, Rob Ford told reporters he felt “ashamed, embarrassed and humiliated” by his actions.

On Monday, Rob Ford said had “begun to take control” of his life after being in denial, but he admitted: “This is a long, long road to recovery.”

The mayor of Canada’s largest city said staff at the rehab facility in Ontario saved his life.

“For a long, long time I resisted the idea of getting help,” Rob Ford said.

“Like a lot of people dealing with substance abuse, I was in complete denial.

“But it soon became obvious that my alcohol and drug use was having a serious, serious impact on my family, on my health and on my job as mayor.”

Rob Ford has been stripped of many of his powers after admitting using and buying illegal drugs while mayor.

Rob Ford has brushed aside pressure to quit, saying voters will decide whether to keep him in office in the October election.
