Toronto council poised to strip mayor of powers

TORONTO (AP) — Toronto's
City Council plans to vote today on a motion that would strip Mayor Rob
Ford of most of his remaining powers.

The motion, already endorsed by most of the council members, would make Ford essentially the mayor in name only.

The
council is pursuing the strongest recourse available after Ford
admitted to smoking crack cocaine and his repeated outbursts of erratic
behavior.
