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.
