Toronto council poised to strip mayor of powers

Posted: Updated:

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.
