Rob Ford’s name is still on the ballot for the Oct. 27 election and no matter how many people that upsets, only he can have it removed.

In reality, as loud as his leave of absence is, he is technically on what amounts to sick leave.

As the elected mayor, even with his vile recorded remarks and the emergence of a possible second crack video, he can come back any time he chooses.

It remains unknown if or when he will.

If he misses three meetings, council could decide to vacate the mayor’s position but Ford could still stay on the ballot if he so chooses.

He could also decide not to run and still come back and finish out his term as mayor.
