Ms. Ford is trying to tap into the Ford family dynasty in Etobicoke North, a diverse, northwest Toronto constituency. Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who is her brother-in-law, holds the same riding provincially and nephew Councillor Michael Ford represents it at city hall.

Ms. Ford, who is a candidate for the fringe, far-right People's Party of Canada, is trying to unseat incumbent Liberal MP Kirsty Duncan, who has held the riding for the past 11 years.

Ms. Ford's unexpected foray into politics comes after a turbulent few years: the 2016 death of her husband after a mayoral term marred by a crack cocaine scandal, her own history of substance abuse and her lawsuit against Doug Ford.
