Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will take a break from his re-election campaign to get help for substance abuse issues, he said Wednesday.
“It’s not easy to be vulnerable and this is one of the most difficult times in my life,” Ford said in a statement. ” I have a problem with alcohol, and the choices I have made while under the influence. I have struggled with this for some time.”
The statement was provided to CNN by its affiliate CTV.
