“I have experienced how none of us can go through our life without making mistakes," Rob Ford told some 2,000 supporters in a 30-minute speech last night, according to CBC News. I’ve learned humility, kindness of people and the spirit of second chances. I owe the people a great debt of gratitude.”

"I’m running on my record and my record is second to none," Ford said at the Toronto Congress Centre. "I'm the most open hard-working mayor this city has ever had. I continue to pledge honesty and transparency."

“If you have my back when they start throwing mud … I promise you, Rob Ford will have your back for the next four years," he added.
