He's worse.  He's a Trump admirer and wannabe.

The judge didn't deny the province had the right to do it, but ruled on the timing.  How is that overreach ?

Freedom of expression? Seriously? I agree the timing is stupid. But a judge does not have supervisory power over the legislature. He's simply supposed to see if the actions are unconstitutional - not if they're stupid or if they're fair or if they're mean or if the government justified them or if the government consulted with people - just if they're constitutional. Inventing a ridiculous pretext to rule they were NOT by saying that violated people's freedom of expression is far more of a violation of democracy than the use of the notwithstanding clause.
