Are you saying politicians shouldn't be bound by the courts?

It's not that simple or simplistic. I wish we had a judiciary which did its job properly, in an unbiased fashion, without inserting their own ideological prejudices. I think that's fundamentally necessary. I just don't think we have that. I think we have an arrogant, activist judiciary who are, more and more, coming to see themselves as supervisors of the elected politicians as opposed to simply comparing laws to the constitution.

Trudeau could kill the Ontario law but he understands the idea of overreach.

Or he understands what a can of worms he would be opening by overturning it. Why not do that for Bill 101? Why not do that for the law BC passed about the pipelines? Not to mention every premier would be up in arms.

Hardly worth it over a few city councilors.
