Ontario Premier Doug Ford shocked the province today as he announced he would invoke the notwithstanding clause — also known as Section 33 in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms — to reverse a court decision to uphold Toronto's 47-seat council.

Earlier today, Superior Court Justice Edward Belobaba upheld the city's motion to keep the election at the higher number of seats.

However, in a press conference that was delayed several times, Ford announced the decision would be overruled.
