Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted today he has purchased illegal drugs in the past two years, just one of many stunning moments at a city council meeting in which Ford faced a motion that calls on him to take a leave of absence to deal with personal problems

Coun. Denzil Minnan-Wong — who is sponsoring the motion that asks Ford to step aside, apologize and co-operate with police — asked Ford, "Do you have zero tolerance of guns, drugs and gangs?"

The mayor said he does. Minnan-Wong then asked, "Have you purchased illegal drugs in the past two years?"

After a long pause, Ford replied, "Yes I have."
