Rob Ford, the embattled mayor of Toronto, was stripped of many of his powers on Monday after a heated city council debate during which he knocked over a woman councillor and heckled members of the public.

In a series of votes, the council voted to cut his office budget by 60%, and allow members of his staff to transfer to the deputy mayor. He will no longer be able to chair the council’s executive committee, retaining only his ceremonial powers.

The votes came at the end of an extraordinary meeting at which Ford paced around the council chamber and traded barbs with members of the public. The speaker asked security to clear the chamber and a recess was called. Members of the public chanted “Shame! Shame!” at the mayor.

At one point, Ford charged at the gallery, and knocked over a councillor, Pam McConnell, before picking her back up. Ford said he was rushing to the defense of his brother, city councillor Doug Ford. ”I picked her up,” Rob Ford said. “I ran around because I thought my brother was getting into an altercation.”
