Toronto Mayor Rob Ford told his city council that he bought illegal drugs.

He was asked by a council member during the assembly on Wednesday if he had purchased illegal drugs in the last two years.

Ford paused for around ten seconds before responding: ‘Yes I have’ to gasps from colleagues in the chamber…

A motion before the Toronto City Council on Wednesday asked the province of Ontario to pass legislation to remove the mayor if he doesn’t voluntarily take a leave of absence.

Ford, who also acknowledged last week that he had a drinking problem, said the council meeting will be a ‘rumble in the jungle’.
