Ontario Premier Doug Ford says he will override Canada's Constitution to overturn a court decision that ruled his move to redraw Toronto's political boundaries in the middle of the city's municipal election is "unconstitutional."

And if the courts keep striking down his bad laws as unconstitutional, Ford says he's ready to invoke the notwithstanding clause to override the constitution "again in the future" too.

Ontario's Superior Court delivered a damning decision Monday, ruling Ford's gerrymandering law is undemocratic and unconstitutional.
