Toronto Mayor: Everything's Going Fine

Amid allegations of crack cocaine use

Brian Johnston, one of the mayor's policy advisers, was escorted out by security Thursday afternoon. He told reporters he had resigned and the timing was right for his departure. Kia Nejatian, the mayor's executive assistant, also resigned Thursday, though he was not seen at city hall.
