TORONTO Toronto Mayor Rob Ford arrived more than an hour late for a speech to the Economic Club of Canada, saying he had been stuck in an elevator for 45 minutes.

The president of the Economic Club of Canada said she was trapped in the same hotel elevator as Ford.

Rhiannon Traill said the group -- which included members of Ford's staff as well as hotel employees -- took a freight elevator to "avoid all the traffic" in the lobby.

Several members of the business crowd left before Ford's arrival. Traill says they weren't able to notify anybody of the delay.

Ford is having a turbulent week, starting with the emergence of a video showing him slurring his words in an odd rant against Toronto's police chief.
