TORONTO’S mayor Rob Ford has said he cannot guarantee he will stay sober if he is re-elected, telling a radio show that people will have to trust him.

Ford, who is back after two months in rehab, said that he cannot make promises about something over which he has “no control”.

Radio host Jerry Agar said that as someone who has supported Ford in the past, the lack of guarantees that he will not drink again if re-elected makes it tough to “take another four-year shot on Rob Ford”.

“That’s up to you,” Ford replied. “You’re going to have to look at my record and compare it to the people I’m running [against] and you’re basically going to have to trust me.”
