Toronto (Canada) (AFP) – Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on Monday admitted he had been in “complete denial” about his drug and alcohol abuse, as he returned to work following a stint in rehab.

Ford, who is seeking re-election in October despite revelations earlier this year that he smoked crack while in office, said he had “begun to take control” of his life, but admitted: “This is a long, long road to recovery.”
