ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO — Toronto’s City Council has voted overwhelming to strip Mayor Rob Ford of some of his powers in the latest attempt to box in the brash leader who has rebuffed huge pressure to resign over his drinking and drug habits and erratic behavior.

The motion was approved in a 39-3 vote today. It suspends Ford’s authority to appoint and dismiss the deputy mayor and his executive committee, which runs the budget process.

Ford vowed to fight it in court.
