Embattled Toronto mayor says he’s getting professional help
The Toronto Argonauts football team took issue with Ford wearing the team jersey.
"These latest remarks, while wearing our team's jersey, are particularly disappointing," the team said in a statement.
Denzil Minnan-Wong, a former Ford ally, is now calling on the mayor to resign in light of the latest court documents and comments.
"This is beyond a leave of absence. He needs to resign," said councilor Denzil Minnan-Wong. "This mayor thinks he is above the law, he is not."
Councilor Giorgio Mammoliti, a Ford ally, said if Ford doesn't agree to go for treatment by the end of the day he's lost his support.
Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly, also a Ford ally, said he's increasingly sad that "Canada's biggest and most important city had been reduced to that squalid context."
