Toronto's mayor Rob Ford is to be stripped of some of his powers following a vote by the city's council.
It is the latest attempt to rein in Mr Ford, who has refused to resign amid a drugs and drink row.
In recent days Mr Ford has admitted using crack cocaine, buying illegal drugs, and drink driving - while mayor - and used lewd language on television.
