Amid scandal, Toronto mayor says he's not quitting
Despite the exodus, Mayor Ford insists it's still business as usual at city hall.
Excerpt from Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's Thursday afternoon press conference at Toronto city hall:
"I emphasize and I assure you that the work is being done. Phone calls are being returned. Emails are being responded to. I was elected to keep taxes low and to reduce the size and cost of government and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing every single day. I’ve been interviewing candidates all week and I look forward to hiring new staff as soon as possible."
