Rob Ford is considering undergoing treatment, according to the Globe and Mail, after a video emerged of the Toronto mayor threatening to kill someone.
Mr Ford apologised over the expletive-ridden video earlier today, adding that he had been "very inebriated".
“He’s considering options,” Dennis Morris, the mayor’s lawyer and a long-time family friend, told The Globe and Mail in an interview Friday. “And we’ll stay tuned to see what he says in the next few days.”
