Canada's crack-smoking mayor to run again

Rob Ford's behavior catapulted Toronto on to the world stage and made Rob Ford one of the biggest news stories of 2013.

    Toronto's controversial Mayor Rob Ford wants to run for re-election.

    Over the past few months, Ford has admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in a drunken stupor.

    Given the bad publicity that admission has attracted the decision to run again for mayoral elections might come as a surprise, but not to Rob Ford's supporters.

    And with his cost cutting credentials in tact, Rob Ford will have another run at running one of North America’s fastest growing cities.
