TORONTO - Did Mayor Rob Ford outlast his crack cocaine scandal?

Three weeks after admitting to smoking crack, he still wasn’t showing any sign of calling it quits or clearing the air around the controversy.

Ford arrived at City Hall Tuesday just before 1 p.m. and ignored questions from a shrinking swarm of reporters as he walked into his office.

Back on Nov. 5, Ford was under fire just a few days after Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair confirmed investigators had uncovered a video of the mayor — a revelation that came after months of Ford denying allegations a video existed of him smoking crack.

Ford got off the same elevator outside his office and eventually admitted to reporters he had smoked crack.

“Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford said at the time. “But no, do I (smoke crack), am I an addict? No. Have I tried it? Probably in one of my drunken stupors, probably approximately about a year ago.

“I’ve made mistakes in the past and all I can do is apologize but it is what it is,” he added.

Police documents have since confirmed cops believe the video was filmed in February of this year, not a year ago.
