Most Unbelievable quotes from the past week in Toronto

The 10 most unbelievable quotes from the past 36 hours of Rob Ford insanity, from Charlie Sheen to Kathleen Wynne

Somehow, in the past two days, the situation at city
 hall managed to get even more surreal. Council 
voted en masse to urge Rob Ford to step aside. 
Police documents allege Ford entertained a 
prostitute in his office. Ford talked about oral sex 
on TV (including CNN, which carried it live). 
The mayor got his own television show. 
Needless to say, it’s a total zoo. Here, 
we round up ten quotes that drive home 
how outlandish Toronto politics have become.
