Toronto, ON (WKBW) - The drama keeps growing for the embattled Toronto mayor.

Many of Rob Ford's powers were stripped on Friday night. Monday evening, the council voted to remove his final mayoral powers.

Mayor Ford called the move a "coup d'etat." At times, the meeting became heated, with Ford charging towards hecklers and knocking over a councillor in the process.

Ford has admitted to using crack cocaine. His political career has also been jeopardized by a sex scandal and reality TV show.
