Former Toronto mayor Rob Ford has passed away today at Canada’s Mount Sinai hospital following a battle with cancer. He was 46.
Ford is probably most known for his infamous crack scandal during his time in office (2010 to 2014), as well as reported issues with alcohol, which sent him to rehab…he was then diagnosed with pleomorphic liposarcoma after a tumor was found in his abdomen. He did undergo aggressive treatment, from surgeries to chemotherapy; unfortunately, it wasn’t enough.
Ford is survived by his wife and 2 children. Our condolences go out to his family and loved ones.
