Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is apologizing for making "mistakes" and acknowledging the need to curb his drinking, but he isn't addressing allegations of drug use.
The mayor made his remarks on his local weekly radio show three days after police said they had obtained a copy of a video that appears to show him puffing on a crack cocaine pipe.
The video was recovered from a computer hard drive during an investigation of an associate of Ford's who is suspected of providing him drugs. Police have said they don't have grounds to charge the mayor with any crime.
Ford didn't address the contents of the video Sunday, saying he cannot comment on a tape he hasn't seen.
Police have said they want to talk to Ford, but his lawyer so far has declined.
All four major Toronto newspapers have called on Ford to resign.
