As long as what they do gets forgiven by the electorate, yeah. Pretty much. That's how parliamentary democracy works.

No it's not.  Some of Harper dumbest laws were rejected by the courts, thankfully.  Imagine how you'd feel if Wynne or Trudeau used the clause to ram through every wackjob idea she had.

No. The judiciary is supposed to analyse laws and determine if they meet a constitutional test, when challenged. I'm fine with that. What I'm not fine with is judges saying "Well, I don't like this law, so let's see, how can I justify overturning it somehow... Hmm. I'll say it's against people's freedom of expression!"

Yes there's judges out there that suck, that are horribly ideological, that make bad rulings.  That's why there's an appeal process.  That's why Ford can take this all the way to the SCC, and that's why the SCC isn't made up of just 1 or 3 or 5 judges.

The election is still a couple of months away.

The election is Oct. 22
I queef, therefore I am.
