Several hundred protesters gathered outside Toronto city hall Saturday and called for Mayor Rob Ford to step down.
Many held up posters calling for Ford to be ousted and called the mayor’s ongoing video scandal a disgrace to the city.
One Ford supporter who braved the crowd to defend the mayor wound up in a heated argument, and was quickly drowned out by anti-Ford chants.
For more than two weeks, Ford has been bombarded with questions about reports of an alleged video showing him smoking what appears to be crack cocaine a drug he says he does not use.
He’s refused to answer questions about the video scandal at news conferences that he has held the past two days.
Several of Ford’s staffers have parted comany with the mayor.
