GRAVENHURST, Ont. - Mayor Rob Ford’s Cadillac Escalade could be back on the road Tuesday.

It’s been a week since Ford’s SUV was impounded in cottage country after it was loaned to a woman he is believed to have met in rehab and she was pulled over for alleged drunk driving.

And while Toronto’s mayor continues to battle his drug and alcohol demons behind the gates of GreenStone Muskoka — a treatment centre in nearby Bala — OPP are expected to set his SUV free.

Ford took a leave of absence from his job as the city’s top magistrate April 30 and checked into rehab the next day.

A few weeks later, Ford created a stir over the Victoria Day long weekend when he posed for photos with numerous people in Gravenhurst — not far from his family’s cottage — while out on a day-pass from the treatment centre.

Days later, on May 20, Bracebridge OPP officers stopped his black Cadillac Escalade on Hwy. 169 at Butterfly Rd. — 4 km from GreenStone — suspecting the driver was impaired.

Lee Anne McRobb, of Muskoka Lakes Township, was charged with impaired driving and driving with more than 80 mg of alcohol.

Sun sources claim the 36-year-old local met Ford while in rehab at GreenStone.

McRobb was released from the facility days earlier and was driving the mayor’s luxury SUV with his permission, sources allege.
