Toronto's scandal-hit mayor Rob Ford has suggested that his past misdemeanours may be due to the fact that he "hung around with the wrong company".
"Maybe I'm too nice," Ford says when asked about the company he keeps. He adds "maybe I did hang around with the wrong company."
In an interview with Canadian broadcaster CP24, he admitted again to having taken crack "maybe once" and to experimenting with party drugs in his youth:
"I don't do crack. I've done it maybe once," Ford says.
Ford says he may have experimented with party drugs when he was younger.
