Let's hear from Supreme Court on Ford's contempt for Toronto - 2019-09-23
Premier Doug Ford's slashing of Toronto council in the middle of last year's municipal election was an act of supreme contempt for candidates and the city's voters. It wasn't fair and it wasn't right.
On some level even Ford probably knows that, but he wanted to do it and he gambled that he could get away with it.
So far he has succeeded because cities were an afterthought when Canada's Constitution was drawn up in 1867.
Last week the Ontario Court of Appeal overturned a lower-court decision and upheld Ford's mid-election interference as perfectly constitutional.
