Everything You Didn't Know About Doug Ford, Rob's Less Infamous Brother - 2014-09-12
The lesser-known Ford, who will be replacing his younger brother in the race, was confirmed as a mayoral candidate just before 2 p.m. on Friday — the deadline to register to enter the election, as well as to withdraw a candidate's name. Toronto's mayoral election will take place on Oct. 27.
Doug, 49, has been a staunch supporter of his younger brother, 45, throughout the embattled mayor's struggle with drug and alcohol abuse. In a statement released Friday, Rob said he asked his older brother to run.
