Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he's 'not going anywhere, guaranteed'

TORONTO — A defiant Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he’s "not going anywhere, guaranteed” despite immense pressure to step aside after admitting he smoked crack cocaine.

Ford made the remark to a supporter as he walked back to City Hall today after giving a speech during Remembrance Day ceremonies for veterans.

Ford says he’s ready to “get it on” with City Council members who have introduced a motion urging him to step aside. A vote is likely Wednesday.

Ford’s refusal to resign or take a leave of absence has frustrated both his opponents and allies on the council, which has no legal way to force him out unless he’s convicted of a crime.

There’s been no indication that Ford will enter rehab since his lawyer said Friday that he was “considering” it.
