Toronto, Canada –
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was stripped of his authority on Monday by the city council during a meeting that featured heated arguments between Ford, City Council, and angry citizens.
At one point in the meeting Ford charged towards hecklers and in the process almost knocked over a council woman.
The meeting came after Ford publicly admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in office. Ford will essentially be Mayor in title only as he will no longer have legislative power or be able to chair the executive committee.
