Crack-Smoking Mayor Rob Ford Is Stripped Of His Power

Rob Ford’s wildly awful week somehow just got more awful.

The Toronto City Council voted overwhelmingly on Friday to substantially limit the embattled Ford’s mayoral powers.

A vote of 39-3 stripped Ford of his authority to dismiss and appoint chairpeople, and a vote of 41-2 revoked his power to govern the city unilaterally in the event of an emergency.

So if a snowstorm hits, Toronto, don’t call Rob Ford.

Following the vote, Ford stated that he understood where the council was “coming from” with these decisions, but would challenge the rulings in court.

3. These are the powers that Mayor Ford retains. He’s basically being reduced to a political hype man.

4. Another vote is set for Monday to render Mayor Ford even more powerless.
