Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was reportedly spotted in Bracebridge, Ont., on Friday.
Photos posted to Twitter show Ford outside some shops in the heart of cottage country.
The Ford family owns a cottage in the Muskokas, somewhere between Bracebridge and Huntsville. Rob Ford has vacationed there during the Pride parade in recent years.
The two people have told The Star that Ford is a patient, but GreeneStone has not confirmed that the mayor is staying there.

The Star reports that GreeneStone allows patients to leave the facility unescorted, depending on the state of their recovery.
In 2011, Now Magazine’s Enzo DiMatteo snapped a few photos of family compound, also known as “El Rancho Grande.”
DiMatteo reported that Doug Ford Jr. is listed as the owner of the residence on the land registry records.
