Well into Rob Ford's tumultuous reign as mayor of Toronto, he and his staff had an unusual problem: Rob's brother, Doug.

Seeing himself more as co-mayor than the first-term city councillor that he was, Doug Ford would ensconce himself in the chief magistrate's office when his brother was out and hold official meetings, recalled Mark Towhey, the late mayor's former chief of staff.

"Rob was livid about this," Towhey wrote in his 2015 book on the Ford saga, Uncontrollable.
