The Economic Club of Canada is issuing full refunds to audience members who had to wait nearly an hour for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to deliver a speech last week.

Ford was on his way to the venue when he got stuck in an elevator - with no cell phone service - for 45 minutes.

Several members of the crowd who had paid to hear Ford speak left before the controversial mayor's arrival.

Economic Club president Rhiannon Traill - who was stuck in the elevator with Ford and several other event organizers - says the refund is an apology for the wait guests had to endure.

She says it's the first time the club has taken such a step but adds that the event was affected by ``extraordinary circumstances.''

Traill says Ford was not involved in the club's decision to issue refunds.
