Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has allegedly told The Toronto Sun that he is ready to take a break” from the mayoral election campaign to “go get help” — likely in light of a new video discussed by Robyn Doolittle at her new home with The Globe and Mail.

As someone who has extensive professional history working with and supporting those struggling with addiction, I have always had nothing but empathy for Rob Ford’s personal battles, and reinforces the need to emphasize social services. I wish him the best in taking a break from his mayoral campaign, and hope this recent development is a legitimate effort. It is not only what’s best for Rob Ford, but for Toronto.

However, a line needs to be drawn between having empathy for someone and recognizing the dangers associated with having him as a civil servant. Rob Ford is not, has not, and will not be fit for public office.
