1. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said Wednesday that a video that has surfaced of him swearing in a Jamaican accent while drunk in a fast food restaurant is a “minor setback.”
2. At a press conference on Wednesday to discuss the city’s budget vote, the mayor said:
Monday was unfortunate. I had a minor setback. We all experience these difficult bumps in life. This is completely a private matter. There are some counselors who claim that my personal life is somehow impacting their work. Folks, that is absolute nonsense.
