Toronto Mayor Says He'll Fight Any Effort to Get Him Out of Office

People pressuring him to take leave of absence

Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said Tuesday he will fight any attempt to have him take a leave of absence in the wake of a crack smoking scandal.

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

Ford, who acknowledged last week that he smoked crack, said the council meeting will be a "rumble in the jungle."

Ford made the remark as he signed bobble headed "Robbie Bobbie" dolls for $20 each, inside City Hall on Tuesday.
