Protesters gathered outside Toronto City Hall Nov 6 to call on Mayor Rob Ford to step down.
After months of lying about his drug use, Ford admitted Nov 5 that he'd smoked crack cocaine and that he has an alcohol problem. However, rather than stepping down to get help, Ford said he will stay on as mayor. He did not address allegations that he was also filmed making homophobic and racist slurs.
"The man needs help, he needs to leave," one protester told Xtra. (Check out Xtra's photo gallery from the protest here.)
Another protester said he was at city hall to get answers: "I hear that there are homophobic slurs in this video and I’m waiting to hear what the mayor has to say."

A second protest has been planned for Wed, Nov 13 at noon at Nathan Phillips Square.
