Jan. 2 was the first day for candidates to file papers to run in Toronto's mayoral election, which will be held Oct. 27. According to the CBC, Ford was the first person to register to run in the race.
Two city councillors have said they intend to run against Ford. Multiple other candidates are rumored to be mulling bids. In November, after Ford admitted to using crack, the City Council overwhelmingly voted to strip him of many of his powers.
