Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was being grilled at City Council Wednesday after he admitted last week to smoking crack cocaine in a drunken stupor about a year ago.

The extraordinary council debate – which is the result of a motion from former ally Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong – focused on Mr. Ford's integrity and ability to continue on as mayor.

City council passed the motion, asking Mr. Ford to apologize for misleading Torontonians about the existence of a video in which he is alleged to have smoked crack, to co-operate with police and to take a leave.
