Rob Ford Admits Crack Use: Politicians React

Federal Industry Minister James Moore and Justice Minister Peter MacKay were among those to express sympathy, while Liberal MP Scott Brison and Toronto Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam were less generous. Bob Rae was apoplectic with rage after Ford held a press conference at which he pledged to continue to serve as mayor. Check out all the political reactions below.
