Is Toronto Mayor Rob Ford headed to Chicago? That’s what one Canadian news outlet reported Thursday afternoon.

This, according to Global News:

“Global has confirmed Thursday afternoon the mayor flew to Chicago. It’s unclear at this point where he is staying or receiving help.”

Ford said Wednesday he will take an immediate leave from his job as mayor and his reelection campaign. This comes after a report surfaced about a second video of the mayor smoking what appears to be crack cocaine.

“I have a problem with alcohol, and the choices I have made while under the influence. I have struggled with this for some time,” he said in statement.



Here’s video of Ford leaving his home early Thursday:
