Toronto Mayor Won't Resign After Police Discover Video Of Him Smoking Crack Pipe

Posted: Updated:
Toronto - TORONTO (AP) - Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is reiterating that he won't resign despite mounting pressure for him to step aside after police said they had obtained a copy of a video that appears to show the mayor of Canada's largest city puffing on a crack pipe.
    
Ford smiled outside his office on Saturday and said: "No. As I told you before I'm not resigning."
    
Allegations that Ford had been caught on video smoking crack first surfaced in May. Two reporters with the Toronto Star and one from the U.S. website Gawker said they saw the video but did not obtain a copy.
    
Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly, a Ford ally, said Friday he would meet with Ford on Saturday. Kelly said he hoped Ford would make the right decision.
