TORONTO - Coun. Doug Ford thinks his brother Mayor Rob Ford needs to go away for "a couple of weeks."

Ford went on AM640 Friday and acknowledged he believes the mayor needs some time away from the ongoing crack scandal.

Mayor Ford admitted Tuesday he's smoked crack and has apologized throughout the week for several several drunken episodes. Despite the controversy, Ford has refused to take the advice of some of his key council allies to take a temporary leave.

"I've mentioned to Rob, maybe go away for a week, a couple weeks, get your mind together," Coun. Ford told AM640 host John Oakley Friday. "I think it is disgusting the way these councillors are playing politics to the point of trying to tap dance on his grave."

The Ford Brothers' Sunday talk show The City, has also been cancelled.
