CONTROVERSIAL TORONTO MAYOR STRIPPED OF POWERS

Scandal-plagued Toronto mayor Rob Ford was stripped of the last of his meaningful powers after a heated city council debate in which he argued with members of the public, charged hecklers and knocked down a councillor. 
Mr Ford called the move a “coup d’├ętat” and vowed an “outright war” in the next election. 
“What’s happening here today is not a democratic process, it’s a dictatorship process,” the 44-year-old mayor declared. 
The council voted overwhelmingly in favour of slashing Mr Ford’s office budget by 60 per cent and allowing his staff to move to the deputy mayor, who now takes on many of the mayor’s former powers. 
Mr Ford now effectively has no legislative power and no longer chairs the executive committee, although he retains his title and ability to represent Toronto at official functions.
