in the crack smoking confession, the drunken rants, all the dramatic, of course, might be coming back to bite toronto's mayor. the city council meeting this hour could vote to transfer much of rob ford's power to his deputy mayor. this new local tv show also debuts tonight. he's using oo the air time to defend himself and challenge officials who seemingly want him out. they say this is ridiculous. check out this clip from his new show called "coordination." >> i'll do a drug test, an alcohol test right now because -- and i put a motion forward that every counselor do it, too. you know what? they jumped up. they don't want anything to do with it. the last counsel meeting, they say we're going out drink diagnose afterwards. i don't want to do this. i'm not a rat, joe. i know people party on the side.
i know lawyers, doctors, are everybody has a good time. >> anybody? >> i'm not going to name names. . see who comes forward and who doesn't. >> all right. so ford shows up at a canadian football game on sunday and he gets rock star treatment. cnn's bill wear caught up with him at a rally and the mayor was explaining why he has been denying these accusations of using crack for so long. listen to this. >> these folks love you. but do you realize lou you're perceived around the rest of the country, around the rest of the continent? >> they can make fun of me, laugh at me all they want. they don't know rob ford. these people know me. i was born and raised here. >> why did you decide to finally admit you had smoked crack? >> i'm not going to run around and be phony and lie and have someone say they have videos of this and hold it over my head. you don't trust what the toronto
star says. i was sick and tired of all these allegations and all this [ bleep ]. i shouldn't have sworn in front of the kids. i made mistakes. i drank too much. i smoked crack sometimes. what can i say? i made a mistake. i'm human. >> can't you see why some would question your judgment? so lie about it, just hide? >> you said you wouldn't do it in the first place. >> no, i didn't say that. you're absolutely wrong what you said. they said do you smoke crack and are you a crack addict? no, i don't smoke crack and i'm not a crack addict. have i? yes, i have. i don't smoke crack the. i haven't smoked crack in over a year. dy? typical media. you guys are cut from the same cloth. you know, you guys can spin it every way you want. >> so then the mayor's brother coming to his defense here. nic robertson spoke with doug ford. here's what he said about the upcoming council vote that's
about to happen. >> what is happening today is an overthrow of a democratically elected mayor. illegally. this is what you see in third world nations. you don't see this in canada. you don't see this in the united states. you don't see this in the uk. we're talking about a third world nation overthrow here. >> why doesn't he to avert the situation take your advice, their advice to step back and get some help for a short time and come back? doesn't that avert the situation. >> you know something, no, the ship's already left the dock. there's no rule -- >> you think your brother did allow the ship to leave the dock by not taking the opportunity when presented? >> personally, he's made a mistake. we'll rehash this to the next 100 years, folks. >> nic robertson joins us from toronto. nic, all this rehashing going on here, i imagine people are kind of frustrated. you see the mayor obviously has got a temper.
he keeps explaining himself. does it help him at all? >>. >> you know, he does keep explaining himself. you get him in a relatively controlled confined environment and he can explain himself and get his points across and show supporters around him who like him, but get him as we saw him coming out of the tv station on sunday where he had been recording his new talk show, and you just see the pressures of that that he's under. watch this. watch this and see what happens when he falls over a photographer. >> nic, it can loos like we don't have that sound. describe it for us, if you will. >> we don't have it. you know, it's one of those situations, suzanne you've been in them yourself. you're standing next to the man
in question. you've heard what he said. he falls over a photographer and instead of saying are you okay, he says i didn't do it. he explodes. it's in that tiny fraction of a second, take a look at it yourself. have a look. see what you think. >> mr. mayor, that took a long time. how did it go? >> how did the taping go? >> why you are not taking any canadian -- oh, no. the camera person again. >> i didn't push her. >> mr. mayor, how did the taping go? >> i didn't push her. >> how did the show go today? >> what did you tell your audience. >> i didn't know that was going to happen. >> how did the taping go, mr. mayor. >> how do you feel about -- >> you see him there. he just explodes. it's so unexpected and so unnecessary. it's that unpredictability that's really, his behavior that is so fueling the effort to strip him of his powers,
whatever he said rehashed, that were rehashed for the next 100 years his brother says. he can put it in perhaps different terms that he is getting help it's that unpredictability working against him. you see that in just a few seconds, suzanne. >> i guess we'll see what happens, whether or not he has any power at all at the end of the day. they are trying to make sure he does not. nic, we're keeping eye on the city council meeting happening in transport. much of mayor ford's power is essentially on the line. when it starts to get interesting, wa he will take it live. we'll be right back. [ male announcer ] when you have sinus pressure and pain,
you feel...congested. beat down. crushed. but sudafed gives you maximum strength sinus pressure and pain relief. so you feel free. powerful sinus relief. sudafed. open up. transport's mayor rob ford could be on the verge of losing more power, even more power. the city council is set to vote on a measure to transfer a lot of his duties and his budget to his deputy mayor. so that would turn ford into
more of a figurehead than anything else. but so far he is refusing to step down. ford is saying that let the voters decide his fate in the next election. we're going to watch the vote here, update you as soon as anything happens there. of course, and we're also going to bring this to you, as well. protesters are sick and tired of all of this. they want the mayor gone. they've been holding anti-ford rallies in toronto. and i want you to listen to this, what one comedian said at a protest last week. he's kind of like the stephen colbert of canada. >> just like you, rob ford knows when you go into a friend's crack house, they offer you crack, it's rude not to the smoke that crack. >> all right. the funny man behind the bullhorn ian mcintyre, toronto based aker, write ewriter, come. clearly not a fan of the mayor. if this wasn't real, it would be
hilarious. all of those moments when we are laughing at what is happening here, but this thing is crazy. it's absolutely crazy. do the people in toronto think it's funny? are they laughing because they really want to krip? >> hi there, suzanne. i'm having a hard time hearing you. there's another protest going on right behind me at the moment. i'm not sure if he's doing a bit or if he means it. he's pretty loud. >> tell us what's happening here. you were part of this rally and people were very angry. threw asked you to. >> he can to kind of lighten the mood a little bit. do they need laughs andhinkthis? >> very sick of it. i mean, i know it's interesting because the rob ford has gotten international headlines like the last week. but we've been living it for about three years now. this has been pretty obvious that this guy was a bit of a
train wreck. he's been a pretty bad mayor pretty much this whole time. we're just finding the world is catching up to the rest of us. >> it's kind of an understatement there. he's been on the city council for at least ten years before he became mayor. he ran on the campaign kind of poking fun at the i'm just like you campaign like everyone's running around smoking crack and saying weird things. >> just like you. yeah. his whole thing this whole time has kind of been i'm the little guy. i'm just like you. i'm just a normal person. anything, he's the furthest thing from a normal person. if he's just like us, then he's just like the least of us. but i mean, rob ford, he's really a manufactured image this whole time. he claims to be just a little guy, just a regular joe. he's a trust fund millionaire. his father was involved in provention shall politics for years and became a self-styled back room power broker and then
people got behind rob ford, kind of quietly. they ran his campaign. he was a former premier of ours who helped run rob ford's campaign. he's the farthest thing from an every man. the fact that he keeps repeating that is kind of frustrating >> so ian, you kind of have your finger on the pulse in the community. you're part of these rallies and stuff. do you think you'll be successful. >> do you think they'll be able to get rid of this guy? >> as you see, he's not going anywhere if he can help it. people keep saying he's not leaving city hall unless he's voted out or brought out in handcuffs which fortunately seems likely at this point. hopefully we get him out that way. the protests we had last week, it was a save toronto rally organized by nikki thomas. we didn't think the rob ford was going to listen and leave, although that would have been cool. we just kind of wanted to show there are people in the city who
want him gone and hop support what the council is doing right now to defang him a little bit, take away some of his powers. >> ian, thank you very much. appreciate it. we'll see if all the pressure of the protests if it gets to the mayor. certainly looks like he's not going anywhere anytime soon. we're just getting this. mayor ford's chief of staff confirming the mayor gave his staff $5,000 raises on friday. now, he says that these funds were in the budget, but the city council is moving to strip him of his power and the mayor's brother he says, what the city council doing is simply wrong. >> what is happening today is an overthrow of a democratically elected mayor. illegally. this is what you see in third world nations. you don't see this in canada. you don't see this in the united states. you don't see this in the uk. we're talking about a third world nation overthrow here.
>> why doesn't he to avert the situation, take your advice, their advice, just step back and get some help for a short time and come back? doesn't that avert the situation? >> you know something, no, it wouldn't avert it because the ship's already deft the dock. >> you think your brother did allow the ship to leave the dock by not taking the opportunity when it was presented? >> you know something, personally he's made a mistake. we will rehash this for the next 100 years, folks. >> we're going to be rehashing it momentarily. the city council certainly rehashing it as they hold another meeting. you see a live picture there. they are meeting again, they are trying bit by bit to strip the mayor of his power so he's simply a figurehead and not really the mayor at all. we'll see if they're successful in that. we'll bring it to you live after a quick break. waiting for your wrinkle cream to work? neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair has the fastest retinol formula. to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles in just one week.
we're keeping an eye on the city council meeting in toronto set to begin any minute now. so much of mayor ford's power is really on the line when you think about it because they're trying to strip him from his power because of all the scandal surrounding him. as soon as it starts to heat up, we're going to get that to you live and just dip in. we also are covering this major story. the tornado devastation across the midwest. six people have been killed. hundreds of others lost their homes after these tornadoes tore through neighborhoods. many neighborhoods. we're talking about reports that at least 68 tornado sightings on sunday. and this is just incredible. take a look at the video. this is captured on a car
dashcam out of lebanon, indiana. and you can actually see it. you can see it there the tornado funnel cloud moving across the horizon. the storms hitting illinois the hardest but also missouri and indiana, as well. several neighborhoods in washington, illinois where is wiped off the map. take a look at this tremendous destruction. this is where -- this is where they lost their lives. six people. it could have been a lot worse had much of this town, the 10,000 not been attending church at the time. we actually spoke to the mayor earlier. >> people are in shelters, people are staying with loved ones, hotels if they were able to get one. we're going to rebuild. i mean, we're going to jump back up off canvas and fight and be what it once was. i think we can do it. >> talking to chris cuomo on the ground there. dozens of homes were also destroyed in kokomo, indiana.
you see the inside of the house, the roof simply sheered off completely gone. schools there are closed as we would expect. hundreds of thousands are without power across all three states. i want to the bringing in george howell from kokomo, indiana. and just give us a sense of how people are dealing with this today. we have seen extraordinary pictures. i imagine the stories behind these people's lives are heartbreaking. >> suzanne, absolutely. and when you look at the damage, whether it's in illinois or whether it's here and certainly the loss of life in illinois, when you look at the damage throughout this region, you know, whether this here, whether it was a tornado or whether it was straight line winds, the damage is extensive. you look behind me. that used to be a fire station. no longer the case. today it's all about destroying, tearing down a lot of buildings and starting from scratch in many cases. i spoke with the mayor here just a few hours ago. just about what it's like, you
know, to sustain this much damage and what it's like to start over. take a listen. >> here in kokomo, it's possible this community took the hardest hit. we were in a neighborhood not far from here, and a near had actually constructed a tornado shelter in his backyard told me of seeing a large wedge just past the trees, marble-sized hail. he moved his whole family into the underground chamber in the backyard and within seconds, the tornado struck his home. >> so suzanne is, you know, the thing about it is, we're still getting those wind gusts. they come in pretty strong at times. that is not helping certainly getting in the wait as these crews go through and try to remove a lot of the debris flying around all night, trying to get back to some sense of normalcy. >> george, as we saw the governor speaking there, it really is quite incredible when
you think about it that no one lost their life in the state of indiana. how did that happen? how were people able to escape what you saw there? >> that is the silver lining out here. you know, i just took a slight driving tour to see more of the damage out here. it's so extensive. there are businesses that are gone, homes that are gone. it is amazing no one was seriously injured, that no one was killed. the governor says, this is in part to the fact that the warn got out whether it's through residents watching their local news affiliates to get that information as the meteorologists it tracked the storm coming in, whether it was from emergency officials sounding alarms, telling people to take shelter, people took shelter. people got out of the way. and that's one reason the governor says you know, that this state, you know, really did done a bullet in many ways because people were able to get out of the way as the big storm system passed through. >> all right, george howell, it's fortunate so many people that were able to follow
directions and get help when they needed. it could have been a disaster hutch much worse. thank you, george. appreciate it. we're waiting for the city council hearing to take place. this is out of toronto. mayor rob ford in the hot seat. we expect potentially to see him in this hearing and potentially talk, as well. he's admitted to smoking crack and getting drunk. and he says he is not stepping down. more after the break.

destroyed this city. these tiny babies are in what doctors are calling the icu, the neonatal intensive care unit. it's clearly improvised, and they've been put here because their health situation is frighteningly unstable. in fact, doctors say six infants have died in this chapel in the last six days. >> dr. leslie rosario says some of the infants are too unstable to be medevac'd to a better hospital out of the storm zone. >> what do you need for these sick babies right now most? >> mostly now, incubators. >> tiny fragile cocoons. this little girl was born just a

places that have access to great school systems, access to jobs and multiple transportation modes then the neighborhood begins to thrive and then really really take off. the oxygen of community redevelopment is financing. and all this rebuilding that happened could not have happened without organizations like citi. citi has formed a partnership with our company so that we can take all the lessons from the revitalization of urban america to other cities. so we are now working in chicago and in washington, dc and newark. it's amazing how important safe, affordable housing is to the future of our society.
far? the biggest clue in many ways is the closed-circuit television video circuit camera picture of the plane crash which shows the aircraft, i mean, you know, literally coming straight down into the ground like that. it is frightening. it is distressing video. but it does show. and in many.ways that tells us a great deal about what was happening because there's no forward momentum in the aircraft. it is as if the aircraft has stalled in flight. we know the weather was poor. we know that the pilot attempted one of -- either the second or the third go round and he tried to land but putting together all those pieces of the jigsaw, we now start to get a vet early vision of what the might have happened, this sort of thing. you're talking about things like dramatic aeronautical failure of the air frame or of the
aircraft. that's one particular thing they'll be looking at. they'll be looking at how the pilots were handling the aircraft in the those last moments. did they allow the speed to bleed off. what was the engine management. because we will know from those pictures how the aircraft came out of the sky, that will be the crucial piece of evidence. >> i understand this particular aircraft had been flying for 23 years for at least eight different airlines. is that will typical of a 737? >> you know, the 737 has been around for decades. it is the best selling aircraft in the world. 11,000 have been ordered. 7,700 have been delivered. there is absolutely no reason why merely because it's that age, 23 years old, are that that is a complete red herring in that respect. eight owners, yep, again, a red herring. providing the aircraft was maintained, it was properly looked after and it had regular
checks which, of course you have to have according to various rars aeronautical regulations. so the age per se is a red herring. don't necessarily -- there are many planes flying that are older than that doing very nicely, thank you. >> richard quest, thank you. appreciate your information. we're also watching this, two shootings and a carjacking. this is out of paris. it's got a lot of folks on alert a bit worried what's happening there. a gunman on the loose. police say a man armed with a shotgun walked into the lobby of the liberation newspaper, fired twice hitting a photographer's assistant in the chest. now, the victim is now in serious condition we understand. later a gunman opened fire in front of societe generale bank towers. nobody was wounded in that will particular incident and a man later told police that he was carjacked in that same an neighborhood. so officials say that the similar description suggests that this could be simply one
gunman on the loose. thanks for watching "around the world." cnn newsroom starts right now. rigright now history is being on the markets. tp the dow jonthe dow jones milestone for the first time ever today. we'p we'll fiwe'll find our money in your pocket. rigpright now, people in tt aarpare reelinrare reeling tornadotornadoes that aarpare reelinrare reeling tornadotornadoes tha ripped thd devastated entire neighborhoods. we'we'll gpwe'll go live hardest hit areas. rigpright now a scare for s on p on a plane on the gro aftp after reporafter repo board. we'p we'll kerwe'll keep y. rigp right now, the toront counccouncil is debating wheth strp strip maystrip mayor rb counccouncil is debating wheth strp strip maystrip mayor hhis kep his key powers an over to the deputy mayor. we'we'll brin we'll bring you highlights.
