yet are a cheerleader for using the Notwithstanding Clause...
I am doing nothing you would not do if you were faced with a judiciary that consistently twisted the charter to support political opinions you disagree with. It did not use to be this way. The courts use to take their role as neutral arbitrators and attempted to balance the competing interests. Now all they do is decide what way they want to rule  based on their personal preferences and invent the legal rationalizations required to supported their pre-existing views.

Sort of like free speech. People with left wing views used to understand the importance of free speech as a means prevent oppression. Now that principle is tossed out now that many of the people with power today have left wing views and free speech interferes with their ability to oppress people they disagree with.
