I never said anyone here said that....  I quoted Doug Ford as saying that.    And was wondering how people who believe like you do would be able to support such a hypocritical position, given that  he is talking out of both sides of his mouth.

No, that's the job of people on the Left. My support for Ford's use of the notwithstanding clause was the clear idiocy of the idiot judge who ruled against it. Or as the court of appeal has just stated:

“The question for the courts is not whether Bill 5 is unfair but whether it is unconstitutional. On that crucial question, we have concluded that there is a strong likelihood that application judge erred in law and that the Attorney-General’s appeal to this court will succeed.”

The problem with Doug Ford’s court case against the federal government is that it doesn’t stick to constitutional norms.   Of course the feds can create taxes.   They always have.

I suppose they can. But I've never stated I support or oppose Ontario's appeal of the carbon tax. I'm not a lawyer so I really don't know if they have some technical case or not. And in any case, my issue is not with how the provinces fight with the feds, since that has always been filled with idiocy. My issue is with judicial overreach.
