Toronto politicians to weigh steps as province revives bill to reduce council

Ford orders Legislature to sit Saturday to speed up passage of bill to slash Toronto council

"I would say at this time Mr".

Julie Dabrusin, MP for Toronto-Danforth and a spokesperson for the caucus, told the Star that the caucus statement by "25 federal Liberal MPs saying that a strong Toronto is part of a strong Canada, when you have all of us imploring our MPPs in Queen's Park to do what's right", that is a strong signal. Joe Mihevc, who brought forward the resolution to ask for Ottawa's assistance.

Ontario voters were right to turf the previous government, but after yesterday's abhorrent behaviour, you have to wonder if we went from bad to worse.

"We are the people", a man yelled, referring to the Ford government's slogan of government "for the people". "We're using Section 33 of the Constitution because we believe that the will of the elected legislature should be respected", says Ford in a tweet.

"I'm disappointed that the provincial government chose to take this decision to override people's rights and freedoms but at the same time, I'm not going to weigh in on the actual debate over the size of the municipal governments in Ontario, in Toronto", he said.

I do not believe Scheer's statement is simply a case of not opposing an ally in public, but a signal that the federal and other provincial Conservative parties are ready to use the notwithstanding clause whenever they can profit from doing so.

Ulli Watkiss, who is in charge of running the municipal election, says matters have reached a "tipping point" and she's concerned that every day lost to delay between now and the vote affects her ability to ensure fairness. "Both scenarios are becoming virtually impossible for us to carry out".

Several Conservative spokemen have said that Ford's use of the notwithstanding clause is popular with voters.

The judge's decision has also been described variously as flimsy, poorly reasoned, incoherent, and "looney tunes".

Bob Bailey referred to the "supremacy of the legislature" in his argument that it's appropriate to overrule an Ontario Superior Court judge's finding that the Toronto council bill is unconstitutional.

Ontario NDP members were booted one by one out of the Ontario Legislature - starting with Leader Andrea Horwath - as the official opposition protested the government's use of the notwithstanding clause in the Charter.

"Today we will be reintroducing a bill that will make the City of Toronto operate more efficiently for its citizens".
