Toronto Mayor Says He's Getting Professional Help



TORONTO (AP) - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he's getting help from health care professionals but refused to step aside over his admitted drug use and drinking.
  
Ford said Thursday he didn't want to comment on the particulars of the support he's receiving. He asked for privacy for his family.
  
Ford has defiantly resisted mounting pressure to take a leave of absence or resign since admitting last week to smoking crack.
  
Earlier Thursday, Ford threatened to take legal action against former aides who spoke to police about their concerns about his drug use, and he denied making sexual advances toward a female staffer.
