Doug Ford says Rob Ford is “doing well” but he refused to address racist comments attributed to the mayor.

“Rob’s doing well, I have no comments about anything else,” Doug Ford told reporters Monday.

Mayor Ford took a leave of absence on April 30 to seek help for his admitted “problem with alcohol.” The Fords maintain the mayor has been in rehab since May 1.

But Councillor Ford refused Monday to answer questions about media reports detailing the mayor making several racist comments.

The Toronto Star reported late Friday that it had listened to an audio tape of Mayor Ford from March where he claims he’s “the most racist guy around.”
