Just when you thought Toronto’s crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford had maxed out the shock factor, he managed to take it to a new level – this time with a lewd remark. His latest outburst came just a day after Toronto’s city councilvoted to ask him to take a leave of absence. Not only is Ford refusing to leave, he’s digging in and taking no prisoners. Paula Newton has the latest.
“We cannot say ‘Mayor Ford, leave the building,’ we cannot say ‘step aside,’ we cannot say ‘resign.’ None of it is really in our jurisdiction to make that happen. It’s shocking for the residents of Toronto. They did not realize we didn’t have that power.”
