There were tense scenes in Toronto City Council today as mayor Rob Ford resisted calls to take a break from his duties after admitting to smoking crack among other scandals.
Asked by one councillor whether he had bought illegal drugs in the last two years, Ford answered "Yes I have" but went on to insist he did not have a drink or drugs addiction.
Ford is facing pressure to stand aside after councillors voted almost unanimously for a petition calling on him to take a break from his duties "to address his challenges privately".
Six months ago, a newspaper reported it had acquired a video of him smoking crack. Last week, another video emerged that showed him in an expletive-laden rant threatening murder.
