The government of Premier Doug Ford is proposing changes to the rules at Queen's Park that would give it the power to pass bills into law more quickly.

CBC News has obtained a copy of the proposals, which would allow the government to push legislation through multiple stages in one day and to call night sittings of the Legislature whenever it wishes.

The changes would alter the Legislature's rules of procedure, known as the standing orders. While the proposals are currently being discussed with the opposition parties, the Progressive Conservative majority means the government can bring the changes into effect with a simple vote.
