Rob Ford had an oops moment Wednesday when he voted against city council motions on naming a Toronto street in honour of Nelson Mandela and congratulating Canada's Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
The controversial Toronto mayor — who was the only one to vote against the motions — later claimed he hit the wrong voting button in both cases and asked for a re-vote.
"I guess I pushed the wrong button," Ford said.
"Of course I support Nelson Mandela — I was the one who wished him a happy birthday ... and the Olympic athletes, of course I do," he said.
The council meeting briefly debated Ford's call but then moved on to other business and no re-vote was held before council adjourned for the evening.
