The tumour struck Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has finally announced his decision to withdraw from the mayoral race due to health reasons, while hurling his brother Doug Ford for the same position. In addition to that, Rob Ford has also decided to run for his old city council seat in Etobicoke North (Ward 2).

In the past, Rob Ford has represented Etobicoke North (Ward 2) for almost a decade before winning the mayor’s chair in 2010. Rob Ford filed has once again filed nomination papers for the same councilor seat on Friday, i.e. the seat currently held by Doug Ford.

In response to the recent developments, mayoral rivals Tory and Chow were asked about the race and the Fords. In his remarks, Mr. Tory stated that “(Rob Ford) has to deal with his health,” because “politics really does seem to be quite secondary when you think about all that.” Whereas on the other hand, Chow stated that “I don’t envy what Mr. Ford has to do,” because “on top of doing all the studies, the biopsies, the CT scan and the MRI he has to make a decision on whether to stay in or not.” However, alleging that it doesn’t affect her, Chow said that “I will continue to lay out my plan, a very specific plan on how we can create a more caring and a better city.”
