In the interview with the Toronto Sun‘s Joe Warmington, Ford says he already has plans for his comeback. The mayor hopes to check out of GreeneStone by noon on June 30, and is aiming to be back in the city by 4 or 5p.m. the same day.

“It’s interesting how he’s got it nailed down, when he’s going to be coming back,” Warmington told Global News. “He’s itching to get back.”

Ford went on to say that Toronto will see “a different Rob Ford,” according to the report.

Warmington said Ford would not comment on the Muskoka woman who was charged with impaired driving while behind the wheel of his black Cadillac Escalade.

Ford took a self-imposed leave of absence a month ago after screen shots from a video of the mayor smoking what appeared to be crack-cocaine emerged.
