Rob Ford's Jamaican rant

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admits he was drinking Monday night after a video surfaced online today of him rambling and swearing.

Ford has repeatedly said he has not had a drink since November.

After the video was posted to YouTube, Ford told reporters he had indeed been drinking the previous night, and that what he does in his personal life with his friends is up to him.

He says he doesn't think his use of Jamaican patois and swear words was discriminatory, saying it's how he speaks with some of his friends.

His brother, Coun. Doug Ford, earlier said the video couldn't have been filmed Monday night because he had talked to him at 10:30 p.m.

A user of the social media site Instagram posted a photo of the mayor posing with two men and identified the location as a restaurant called Steak Queen in the city's northwest.

Ford did not answer questions about how he got to the restaurant in that state.
