Former Toronto mayor Rob Ford dies at age 46 - see the touching tributes
Former Toronto mayor Rob Ford has died at the age of 46, losing his battle with a rare form of cancer

Over the last several years, the politician made headlines time and time again. First, for his brash demeanor toward peers and the public. Then, due to a leaked video, which showed him smoking crack and make him national news.  

Ford was diagnosed with pleomorphic liposarcoma, a rare cancer that effects bone, muscle and fat tissue, in 2014 and just two years later has succombed to the disease. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
