Toronto's disgraced mayor retains loyalty

If Canada's Rob Ford defies council to run for re-election next year, he can count on support of district he grew up in.

    Rob Ford, the controversial mayor of the Canadian city of Toronto, has admitted to smoking crack cocaine, buying illegal drugs and drunk driving. But he says he will fight the council's move in the courts and run for re-election next year.

    Meanwhile, 11 out of 20 staff were transfered out of his office. But despite the scandal, as Al Jazeera's Daniel Lak reports from Toronto, some people who voted for him are remaining loyal.
