Toronto City Council Changes Locks at City Hall

Mayor locked out after handing power over to deputy mayor


The locks at Toronto City Hall have been changed, and boxes were packed in the mayor's staff offices ahead of his handover of powers to his deputy Wednesday.

"The locks have been changed, security has been changed, everything's been changed," Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly said at the end of business day on Tuesday, according to the daily Toronto Star.

The former ally of disgraced Mayor Rob Ford who assumes most of the responsibilities of his boss said Ford has now been cut off from the city's nerve center, an area known as "the Fish Bowl," which houses the mayoral staff offices.
