A day after Mayor Rob Ford said he would "ride the storm out" and not resign from his position, it was clear the "storm" remained at city hall.
Ford faced a crush of reporters when he arrived at city hall in the afternoon after regular meeting with constituents that had called his office with concerns, something the Mayor regularly does and staff say will continue to be a focus moving forward.
Ford declined to take questions when he returned to his office after starting his morning there. He called reporters "slackers" for not meeting him at city hall around 7 a.m. when he arrived.
As the spotlight continued to shine on Mayor Ford, city councillors were faced with questions about the Mayor's apology on Sunday and if it went far enough.
"I think it was minimalist," said Councillor Gloria Lindsay. "I don't think it was adequate. It didn't address what most people were very concerned about which were the drug allegations. Just saying 'I'm sorry that I was drinking in the wrong spot and did get caught' is not good enough."
2014 mayoral candidate Councillor Karen Stintz didn't weigh in on Ford's personal issues but said she wanted councillors to focus on city business.
"There is work that needs to get done," Stintz told reporters at city hall. "There's budgets that need to get passed, there's many issues facing council and at this time I think it's really important that we pull together and figure out how we continue to move the city forward."
Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly met with the Mayor on Saturday and says he will continue to work with Ford and wants to make sure he does end of addressing the issues he said he would address.
"He's made a commitment to the people of Toronto and his colleagues and I think we should hold him to that."
