The only mayor of Toronto that any American has ever been able to reference by name is now basically mayor of Toronto in name only:
Toronto city council has voted 36-5 to strip Rob Ford of the last remaining pieces of power and hand them to Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly.
In a series of heavy losses, Ford saw his office budget slashed by 60%, his position as chair of the executive committee taken away, and the last of his removable rights as mayor confiscated.
Ford was also unseated as a mandatory member of all city committees.
According to BlogTO's Rob Bateman, Ford compared the vote to the invasion of Kuwait.
