I'm surprised sometimes how people often don't understand the basic functioning of our institutions. Parliament creates the laws and judges enact them. They don't make the decisions to create the laws. And no matter what a judge decides, it can always be overridden by Parliament with new laws and even a new Constitution if necessary.

The remedy outlined by the court was proper consultation with the city, public and not doing this in the middle of an election.

Instead of doing those things, Doug Ford has decided to use a sledge hammer and invoke the Notwithstanding when he didn't need to.   It's oafish governing at best.

Or the gov't of Ontario could appeal...   no...   DoFo has to do this NOW....   why?  No one knows...   not even DoFo.
