Toronto City Council Strips Mayor Rob Ford Of More Powers

Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford faced another setback Monday as the City Council voted to strip away many of his remaining powers in a heated council meeting.

Ford called the effort a “coup d’etat.”

The council voted overwhelming in a series of votes to cut Ford's office budget by 60 percent and allow mayoral staff to join the deputy mayor. Ford now effectively has no legislative power as he would no longer chair the executive committee.

Ford retains his title and ability to represent Toronto at official functions.
