Famous Toronto crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford has dropped out of the Toronto mayoral race, it has been announced.
The incumbent mayor pulled out of the race due to health problems. According to the official announcement on Thursday, doctors discovered a ‘fair size’ growth in his abdomen, and he was hospitalized on Wednesday with complaints of stomach pain.
Whether the growth in his abdomen is cancerous or not is unknown at the moment. But what is sure that any surgery to remove it – which is very likely in Ford’s case – will make him medically unfit to continue campaigning.
He’s now been replaced by his brother Doug Ford.
