Mayoral rivals’ focus shifts in wake of Rob Ford illness

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s medical condition will not be known for at least another week, but his sudden illness has already created a major shift in the election race for his rivals – even if he stays on the ballot.

Mr. Ford was transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto on Thursday afternoon, where a member of his medical team said he remains in a “holding pattern” after a biopsy and a second CT scan on the tumour in his lower left abdomen.
