“Have you ever smoked marijuana?” repeatedly asked Doug Ford to fellow councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong. “I guess the answer is yes,” he said.

Despite having his microphone turned off and facing repeated calls to be silent from the speaker, Ford continued to say that “everyone should be careful to throw rocks.” He then once again asks “have you ever done illicit drugs, Minnan-Wong?” across the council floor before a five-minute recess was called.
