https://www.thestar.com/news/toronto-election/2018/09/10/superior-court-judge-strikes-down-legislation-cutting-the-size-of-toronto-city-council.html

Long story short.

Doug Ford decides to reduce in half the Toronto city council size. Motivations are stated for efficiency but he was a former city councillor and everyone hated his guts. So that’s likely his motivation.

City sued back. Ford loses because the measure happened when the electoral process had already started. Province said it will appeal.

But appeal isn’t good enough. Ford decided to use the nonwithstanding clause that we have for extreme circumstances. To overrule the judge.

His reasoning:

“I was elected,” Ford told reporters, while saying the judge “was appointed.”



Yay he has gone full trump! Make Ontario great again !

He’s leader of FordNation. It’s a nation because it has nation in it.

Why do we keep electing governments that « care about the environment », but enact environmentally regressive policies in the name of efficiency.

Being green is efficient!

FordNation just cut a bunch of services over the weekend. Including a bunch to the French minority which I am part of.

The cuts suck for everyone but we’re in the situation where we have services and now there are none. boo

Meanwhile making this announcement, he obviously announced tax cuts for the rich boo

FordNation just decided, independently of science, that gender identity is a fabrication and that they will stop teaching it.

http://dailyhive.com/toronto/doug-ford-disapproval-campaign-research-poll-2018

So his dissaproval rating is quite high. This article seems to make it newsworthy but unfortunately it’s not that newsworthy. It’s 5% off from the actual election night results.

What’s really newsworthy (again) is that it’s first past the post wins that gave us his crippling majority. FordNation didn’t want to be FordNation boo


Don’t blame me I voted for Proportional representation for FordNation in 2G7

So in other words, they're saying someone with 63% disapproval would win the election today, because the other two parties are going to split the majority vote?

This topic comes up so often in Canadian politics at the provincial and federal levels, but here we are still stuck with first-past-the-post!

FordNation voters refused to vote for the socialist party because last time it happened it happened through a terrible recession and it crippled the province with debt.There is no indication that non socialist party would’ve not let the province with crippling debt but people gotta remember bogey men

So a bunch of people decided to vote for the party in power instead of the socialist party that had a chance to win, which would’ve been fine in a proportional voting system, but that ends up slplitting the vote. So you have a bunch of progressive people that indirectly voted for FordNation.

Not only did he eliminate three important parliamentary officiers (one overseeing French issues, one overseeing environmental policies, one overseeing child abuse policies), those that remained will lose their independence and become politicized.





For the people right!?
