TORONTO (Reuters) - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on Sunday urged his police chief to release a video that media reports say show him smoking what appears to be crack cocaine and issued a broad apology for mistakes in his past, including public drunkenness.

But Ford, who previously said he does not use crack, said he could not discuss the content of the video until he had seen it. He also said he would remain in office and "ride the storm out," and that he still plans to run for reelection in 2014.

"Whatever this video shows ... Toronto residents deserve to see it, and people need to judge for themselves what they see on this video," Ford said on his weekly radio show. "I'm the first one to admit I'm not perfect. I have made mistakes. I have made mistakes and all I can do right now is apologize for the mistakes. I sincerely, sincerely apologize to my family, to the citizens, to taxpayers of this great city."
