But Ottawa has another weapon at its disposal one just as blunt, and politically explosive, as the notwithstanding clause.

Under the Constitution, the federal cabinet can disallow any act of a provincial legislature. Ottawa could, in other words, simply disallow Ford's council-chopping legislation notwithstanding his use of the notwithstanding clause.

Did you notice your post seems to be rather critical of your buddy Doug? In any case, if that has to be done, what a waste of government time/money to have to strike down an act which is total overreach to simply restore citizens right to have their say through the ballot box. Doesn't seem unlike something Trump might think to try.
