A member of Toronto city council wants an explanation from Mayor Rob Ford.
Josh Matlow says the city needs to hear a more detailed response from the mayor to allegations that a video shows him smoking crack cocaine.
He says the controversy has hurt Toronto’s reputation and has distracted the media and public from the city’s priorities.
Ford has dismissed the allegations as ridiculous, but said little else.
He`s even cancelled his regular Sunday radio talk show.
