Former Toronto mayor Rob Ford—who battled substance abuse issues even when he was in office—has died. He was 46-years-old. 

After months of speculation, in 2013, Ford admitted to smoking crack and soon after entered rehab.

Ford was diagnosed with cancer back in 2014.

Just yesterday, Ford was reportedly in palliative care in Toronto’s Mount Sinai hHospital to deal with the pain. Today (March 22), Ford’s family confirmed that he had succumbed to his battle with cancer.

Ford served as Toronto’s mayor from 2010 to 2014. Rest in power.
