Toronto's City Council Strips Mayor of Powers

Updated: Friday, November 15 2013, 12:55 PM EST
TORONTO (WKRC) -- Toronto's City Council votes overwhelmingly to strip Mayor Rob Ford of some of his powers.

It's the latest response to the erratic behavior of the mayor, who is resisting the pressure to resign since admitting last week to smoking crack. He has also denied making sexual advances toward a female staffer.

The motion, approved by a vote of 39 to 3, suspends Ford's authority to appoint and dismiss the deputy mayor and his executive committee, which runs the budget process.

Ford vowed to fight it in court.
