Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who won global ridicule last year after admitting to having used crack cocaine, registered on Thursday for the October mayoral election, saying he was the best mayor Canada's largest city has ever had and would be re-elected. Ford, who last year admitted that he smoked crack while in a "drunken stupor," purchased illegal drugs while in office and drove after drinking, said his slogan will be "Ford more years." A poll in November showed 42 percent of Toronto voters approved of the job he has been doing as mayor and 33 percent said they would vote for him next October.
