So does anyone know what clause the CBC article is referencing?

It would not be in the new constitution, but the old one.

In Canadian constitutional law, the powers of reservation and disallowance of both federal and provincial legislation still formally remain in place and are described in Sections 55 and 56 of the Constitution Act, 1867, which until 1982 was known as the British North America Act.
