Toronto Mayor to seek help

Posted: Updated:
TORONTO (WKOW) -- Embattled Mayor of Toronto Rob Ford says he will be taking a leave of absence to get help for substance abuse.

Ford's lawyer says the Mayor acknowledges his substance abuse problem and wants to do something about it. Ford admitted last year to using crack while in a drunken stupor and has been followed by scandal since then.

The Mayor is seeking re-election in the October election.
