TORONTO (AP) - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been spotted in a small Ontario town despite his lawyer insisting that he's still in rehab.
Dozens of people spotted Ford outside a shopping plaza in Bracebridge, a community in the province's countryside, resident Brody Lisle, 19, said Friday. Lisle was one of many locals who posed with the mayor for a photo.
Ford's lawyer Dennis Morris wouldn't confirm his client's whereabouts but said he remains in rehab.
Ford announced late last month that he was seeking treatment for an alcohol problem after new allegations of substance abuse surfaced in the media.
Friday marked a year since the Toronto Star and the website Gawker first reported seeing a video that appeared to show the mayor smoking crack cocaine.
