Rob Ford returns to city hall, says he’s “ashamed, embarrassed and humiliated”
After two months at GreeneStone, a rehab facility in Muskoka, Rob Ford made his return to city hall earlier this afternoon. At a 3:30 p.m. press conference, from which all but a select few journalists were barred, the mayor apologized (again) for his past behaviour, without specifying what it was that he was apologizing for. “When I look back on some of the things I have said and some of the things I did when I was using,” he said, “I am ashamed, embarrassed and humiliated.” He added that he had been blind to the dangers of “some of the company I kept,” and that “those associations have ended.” After apologizing a few more times to Toronto residents and city councillors and promising to receive continuing treatment for his substance problems, he rededicated himself to his reelection campaign. He took no questions.
