Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in Rehab Facility

City of Toronto(TORONTO) — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford boarded a plane to Chicago last week, but later withdrew his request to enter the United States and departed, raising questions about where he had gone and why.

According to CTV News, Ford is in fact in a rehab facility, though the specific location was unclear. Ford’s brother Doug, a Toronto city councillor, told reporters on Tuesday that his brother was “feeling great.” Doug Ford would not comment on his brother’s flight to Chicago, however, CTV News reports.

There had been speculation that Ford intended to check in to a drug rehab facility in Chicago, but neither Doug Ford nor the mayor’s lawyer would confirm that.

Ford said last week that he was taking a leave of absence, but would stay on as mayor and seek re-election in October.
