Toronto Council Votes to Strip Mayor Ford of Powers

Toronto Council Votes to Strip Mayor Ford of Powers

The Toronto city council has voted overwhelmingly to to strip Mayor Rob Ford of his powers.

The council convened today's special session just one day after Toronto's crack-smoking mayor announced he's getting professional help for his drinking problem.

Council members are discussing a variety of motions aimed at limiting Ford's powers.

The mayor is under intense pressure to resign after he recently admitted to smoking crack and buying illegal drugs.
