TORONTO (AP) - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's brother says the mayor has boarded a plane and will enter a 30-day inpatient treatment at one of the best rehab facilities in North America when he lands.
Speaking to the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Doug Ford declined to name the location of the facility. Doug Ford didn't return messages seeking comment.
Ford began a leave of absence to seek treatment for substance abuse Thursday, disappearing from public view after a report surfaced of second video of him apparently smoking crack cocaine.
Ford left his west-end Toronto home in a two car-convoy Thursday morning without answering questions from reporters. His nephew was seen leaving the home with a suitcase.
